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.

"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."

"The real voyage of discovery consists not of seeing new landscapes, but in having new eyes...."

"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...."

........ 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

Lucia / training at twilight

In a new, much anticipated hearing the judge concerned has asked for a complete review of all the evidence in Lucia's case.

While this is not bad news it's definitely not good news either and has been described as scandalous - especially as this court session was a result of last year's decision that such a review be undertaken.

So all of the new evidence was available to the judge in advance of the hearing. It had been with him for months.

I've started a group where I hope people will post images to show her we care. It's here

Draw your own conclusions. Tell everyone you can. Lucia has suffered enough.

Front Cover!

Katie the Editor emailed me on Friday to ask for an updated bio. I was on assignment at the time and sent back a rushed email on my phone. Although I knew the subject I had no idea which image she had chosen. The suspense was killing me - there was no way I was going to be able to wait for the mag to arrive through my letter box - so I emailed her this morning and asked for it to include in a presentation I'm giving this afternoon.

And here it is... and there's one thing I can share with you for sure.... I'll never, never, never be able to second guess my editors

Platitude, n.

The fundamental element and special glory of popular literature. A thought that snores in words that smoke. All that is mortal of a departed truth. A jelly-fish withering on the shore of the sea of thought. A desiccated epigram

..... Ambrose Bierce
