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

I've taken photos of the sky
and the walls
and the floor
I've taken photos of my flowers
and the dust on the window
Of the insects on the window
Of the clouds
Of the sky
Of the textures of the chairs
Of the doors
Of the furniture
Of the handles and the wires and the grapes
Of the pillows and the sheets and the laptop
Of my books and my notes and my shoes
I've washed my hair twice although I probably shouldn't


and it's still not evening





(response to Sprocket - this *is* a flower-free ward. But the friend who brought them in was on crutches and is very accustomed to dealing with these guys through far too much experience of her own. While it was a lovely thought I'd personally much prefer to get these or anything else at home where I'll enjoy them for longer and they won't remind me of an unpleasant experience)

Wendle says:

Have you taken photos of... ...nope, i can't think of anything else. You're nothing if not thorough!

Sprocket says:

JokerXL says:

Still having fun then!
:-*

(my brain's been pink sludge since as far back as I can remember. Yesterday even)

10th May 2009, 17:46

having fun... yes....

Sprocket - don't you dare. My assignment is to get the hell out of here

Wendle - I'm sure I'll find more stuff to take tomorrow but my arm doesn't like being used that much at the moment and I've been forced to go back to working and reading

.. did I say I've been taking lots of shots of the sky?

what is pasatiempo?

10th May 2009, 20:20

Sprocket says:

Paintist - I think "pasatiempo" is a made-up word

10th May 2009, 20:23

paintist says:

I googled and it looks like a golf course or a nice Hotel in Santa Fe......

It's a Spanish word game
pasatiempo means hobby or pastime, a play on the words pasar (to happen, pass or occur) and tiempo (time or weather). I was passing time with my hobby

You should take covert pictures of the nurses.

Spiderbaby says:

At least the sky is always changing. You'll be out of there soon :)

thanks George I will - although at the moment I'm not really able to use that arm much at all. The drains are perfectly placed so as to hit a nerve (excruciatingly) if I do anything much - even basic movements

Kostika - maybe, but I'm not really into that kind of thing

Spiderbaby, Viv - I know (grr...)
