Photo of the Day Saturday 23rd June – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel
Thought for the day…”How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire? ”
The endless process of sorting the photo collection goes on (and on). I have chosen a photo from the north of Pakistan today, but one that has a nice story behind it. I was photographing the local scenery in the Hunza Valley from a footpath. Behind me there was an old man building a hedge. When I turned the camera on him, his face broke out into a big grin. I think that he was very happy that I had chosen to take his photo. It turned out that his name was Mr. Nadir and that he was aged 86 years old, but still working. He is wearing the traditional cap from the Hunza area. This part of Pakistan is on the Karakoram Highway, the ancient route that links China with Pakistan. All around are 6000m and 7000m mountains so perhaps not the sort of scenery that you might expect from Pakistan.
Happy not to be working at the Quality Spa Resort Hotel in Norefjell, and not missing the managers at all.
