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

Trouble with borrowed cameras is lack of familiarity... I didn't get as many good shots as I'd have liked...

Spectacular series. I think most of us mere mortals would be very happy with a set of that quality. :)

Puddlepuff says:

They still rock! But where is your camera?

26th May 2009, 06:25

jle - you smiled beautifully on the night and I think that the audience will appreciate the effort you put into it if it shows you're working hard on it..
Tori - thanks
jle - I'll post for you or email it. I still don't know if a picture of me in the evening exists!
Cariadus - but low light and fast movement is my speciality and I should be getting far more - even with a strange camera
George - thank you
Puddlepuff - I still have it but wanted to use something that did less noise at higher ISOs

095 - not sure. Trouble is I wasn't familiar enough with the camera to use it in an equivalent fashion...

26th May 2009, 19:56

I think it would need more than a night of playing with to be sure...

26th May 2009, 20:22

probably on the way back to you as we speak, but I could do a recall.....

Wow - I love these - but I would be so torn - not sure if I would rather be taking the photos or be up there trying out for the show.
