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

to leave Seville. It's a long time since I've felt like this about a place. Maybe I'll delay my return a little...

It looks beautiful.

I've never been to Seville, but have utterly fallen for other parts of Spain.

It is Helen, and the people are so friendly, and the weather is so pleasant, and I'm nearly getting the hang of the way they eat their words here.

Where's your favourite bit?

Helen says:

I like Galicia and the Basque country and the mountains. So many different kinds of beautiful in one country. And yes, great people.

We travelled a lot in N Spain in our camper van when H & B were young and we loved everything about it - but the people and the way of life were amazing we were made so welcome. I have really enjoyed looking right through your blog - thanks.
You seem to be a very strong lady! Good luck in all you do - I bet you can't wait for Dec when you are in charge.
NB - Is dhamaka hindi for festival?

Viv - thanks for the compliments! I was going back to Seville for another 2 weeks on the 14th, but despite the fact the flight's booked it doesn't look as if I'm going to be able to make it :-( Too much to do in London..

I understand that Dhamaka is Hindi for festival, it's also Cocani (Goan) for adrenaline explosion which is why I chose it. I'm told that my other pen name, Vatrena means 'white streak' in Croatian.

I edited your email off your comment. Hope you don't mind. I've had a lot of hassle from people who got my direct email and mobile off the internet (someone photo blogged my business card.. duh.. not a moblogger I hasten to add)
