Photo of the Day Monday 2nd July 2012 – Nothing to do with the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell
Thought for the day….” If you think nobody cares whether you’re alive or dead, try missing a couple of mortgage payments. “
Off to the islands of Cape Verde today, out in the Atlantic Ocean 570km off the western coast of Africa. About 500 000 people live on the 10 main islands, with the main industries being tourism and the money sent back by citizens living abroad. Despite the name, the islands are not especially green, and several of the islands are desert like. This photo captures a local fisherman in the harbour at Mindelo. Good light and an uncluttered background make this portrait successful.
