Going home at sunset – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.
Thought for the day…” A nation of sheep breeds a government of wolves.”
Did you know that the first digital camera was made by Fuji in 1988 (called the Fuji DS-1P), although engineers at Kodak had earlier made a camera that used a CCD (charge coupled device) ? Digital cameras had evolved as a natural extension of the technology that had been developed for recording television programs, such as the VHS tape system. In 1986 Kodak engineers made the first million-pixel sensor. Even Apple joined the race, producing the ‘Apple Quick Take Camera 100’ in 1994. At the other extreme, Fermilab built a 500 megapixel camera for use in telescopes, and the latest professional digital cameras are coming with 70mp sensors. Progess.
Sometimes you need to take a lot of shots of the same scene in order to get one good one. Today’s photo is just one of those situations, as it needed a lot of shots before the fishermen were in the correct position. Timing was so important for this shot, which comes from Mindelo in Cape Verde Islands. End of another day.
