Photo of the Day Thursday 31 May
I am often surprised by people who have expensive cameras, but do not know how to use them. I see so many people trying to work out how to adjust the camera, and then after that making some really basic mistakes. Things like taking photos directly into the sun, or moving the camera about. Even worse are the people who buy a new camera immediately before a holiday, then have to find the instruction book before they can take a photo.
There is a saying, “You can make a foolproof camera, but not a camera that is proof against a fool’. How true.
Up north for today’s photo, to the Norwegian capital of Oslo. Taken earlier this month, Spring had only just started in Norway, even in the southern parts. Oslo lies at around 60 degrees north, so the summers here are short. In the photo you can see the Oslo city hall (the two brown towers on the left) and on the right, the Akershus Castle. About 600 000 people live in the city, which is growing fast.
Sadly Oslo is not so far from the Quality Spa Resort Hotel in Noresund.. I do not miss the managers there, and I do not miss the atmosphere there.
