This is my personal blog, not a venue for saleable images. In fact, because it's here that I share things that are important to me with the members of the moblog community, photo quality's not my priority. Events, occasions, achievements, thoughts, trips and experiments - you'll find them all here. Contact me for the development version of my photo portfolio, for a selection of saleable images or visit my dance photography blog or my website for cuttings. And remember that all photos remain my copyright unless I've specifically said otherwise.

"Never to get lost is not to live, not to know how to get lost brings you to destruction, and somewhere in the terra incognita in between lies a life of discovery."
........ Rebecca Solnit

"Give, give, give -- what is the point of having experience, knowledge or talent if I don't give it away? Of having stories if I don't tell them to others? Of having wealth if I don't share it? I don't intend to be cremated with any of it! It is in giving that I connect with others, with the world and with the divine."
........ Isabel Allende

"Don't ask yourself what the world needs - ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
........ Harold Thurman Whitman

"The real voyage of discovery consists not of seeing new landscapes, but in having new eyes...."
........ Marcel Proust

"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.. you have no such accurate remembrance of a country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle...."
........ Ernest Hemingway

"Ambition leads me not only father than any other man has been before me, but as far as I think it is possible for man to go."
........ James Cook

"The grand show is enternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapour is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls."
........ John Muir

"The bicycle is the most civilised conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart."
........ Iris Murdoch

"Photography for me is not looking, it's feeling. If you can't feel what you're looking at, then you're never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your picture...."
........ Don McCullin

Lost again.... and again...

After flamenco class I got seriously lost on the way back to the room but saw a lot of a very interesting area. When I finally found my room and dumped my stuff I took a wrong turn on the way between it and the hotel! Dont know how I managed it, I only needed to follow one straight line, but it was very useful becaus I stumbled on Plaza de Alfalfa which is near Don Quijote Seville, the language school I covered in June.Rob at Don Quijote very generously arranged for me to use their internet while Im here. Im gong to need it. Internet access and computer use at Taller Flamenco is very basic. Not just because there is only one machine available for the whole school, but also because Explorer is the only programme enabled. I cant even cut and paste from word documents and certainly cant Skype anyone. If I want to eat I really shouldnt spend money on internet cafes so I have to remember where Don Quijote is.I lost so much time getting lost on the way to the hotel and was worried about my knee that I jumped at the offer Jorge made to collect me and my luggage from the hotel and take me to my new room. We went for a drink at Alameda de Hercules after dumping the second round of luggage. Alameda de Hercules is the trendy, bohemian area of Seville, so naturally Esther lives nearby.Jorge says he makes a brilliant gazpacho and keeps telling me about his swimming pool. I wonder if he will invite me round to prove it..Got back to my room too late and too tired to work, then discovered that I had left my toiletries bag (including toothbrush) back in Hotel Alfonso XIII.

Mother, that was last Summer, but it was probably too much flamenco
