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.

"Every time I see an adult on a bicycle I no longer despair for the future of the human race"
........ H G Wells

"All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better"

"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

the weekend's water

Yes, they're 1.5 and 2 litre bottles. I told you it was hot here...

There came a point around 18:30 in the evening where using the electric fan seemed pointless as it was only moving around the already too-hot air. Until, that is, I turned it off..... when I realised just how hot it was outside....

Turns out that the buzzy feeling in my head wasnt too much Spanish coffee - it was wifi. Great to have it in the flat, less great not to be able to turn it off.. Also a shame it took me from Wednesday to Saturday to find out.

Oh yes, and the temperature has gone up again. Cloud cover means it won't cool down tonight either, so the flamenco lessons tomorrow are going to be interesting

Twas 41 degreeswhen we were in Aragon, I didn't think the air con was much cop till we had a power cut ..
Was actually "cooler" in Zaragoza as they have weird local winds , to do with the Ebro and the Pyrenees and things ..

Andalusia is apparently in worst drought of 60 years too, although you wouldn't know it in Seville..
