Crystal clear autumn day in Norway
Thought for the day….” Life is not a rehersal, it is the real thing”
” Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards”
The photo today was taken a couple of days ago in Geilo, Norway on a perfect autumn day. Clear air and no wind made for brilliant photo conditions in this view, which is taken looking west. Captured with the Fuji X E1 camera as a jpg photo. Did you know that the word ‘photography’ comes from the Greek words ‘photos’ (meaning light) and ‘grafien’ (meaning to draw)? Whilst ‘conventional’ photography began in the 1820s, the first real digital camera came in 1988, the Fuji DS-1P. Interesting to think of the quality of this early digital camera and compare it to the 16mp results from the photo below (also taken with a Fuji camera). Did you know that the owner of Kodak cameras (George Eastman) named the company after the sound that the shutters on cameras made when taking photos? There are still 12 Hasselblad cameras left behind on the moon after the Apollo missions between 1969 and 1972. The Hasselblad H4D is probably the most expensive digital camera currently. The 60 mp camera costs around USD 41 000. But even a ‘cheap’ camera can produce fantastic results……..
and another photo out of the archives…..a steam train driver in Uppsala, Sweden…
