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"
........ Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Luck favours the prepared mind"
........ Louis Pasteur

"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

".. deliberately broad. I want you to choose 10 images that tell me something special about you - where you live, who you are and what defines your story from others across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

How you choose to show your world is entirely up to you. It could be 10 separate images or a composite of photos that tell a story. Think about your environment, your culture and about what makes your life special and unique. Use the cameraphone as an instrument to express your own true story."

*crosses fingers

and thank you Sprocket for taking that first image

I like the painted parrots? Who is in hospital? (4)

8th Sep 2008, 20:55

Thank you Twiglet.
My mother spent a day there after being stung twice by what was either an extremely large wasp or an atypical hornet.

8th Sep 2008, 21:17

Twiglet says:

Oh, poor thing. Didn't you once say that you get a bad reaction to stings yourself? Maybe you inherited it. I do hope she's much better now. xxx

8th Sep 2008, 22:31

I do Twiglet, but nothing like as bad as Mum. This double sting was rather too close for comfort although she was fine by the end of the day - just annoyed that she had missed the round of golf she had planned

These are a great expression. I love the message "be thankful for what you got". Nice profile shot. I'm not sure I understand the shadow behind bars...

9th Sep 2008, 04:22

Thank you Midlife
Think of the series as running left to right. I'm facing inwards while taking the photos and pointing at the message from the other side..
Hope Mike Figgis gets it...

Unfortunately there was a third round - and it had to be done in the time I had more work than I could do and no laptop. So I don't expect to get to the red carpet

Viv says:

Yeah but the princess got to the ball and stole the show!

You must be in a spin! You sound to be so busy. Exciting times. :)
