Variations on a Theme. Same same but different
Thought for the day….” Same, same, but different”.
“It is fine to celebrate success, but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure” (Bill Gates)
Off to Paraguay for the photos today, and to the capital Asuncion. This landlocked South American country was once a Spanish colony until 1811. The money is called the Guarani and the capital, Asuncion is home to about 500 000 people. Despite being the capital, Asuncion is not a fun place for tourists, as it has few great sights but does have a lot of broken houses, decay and abandoned buildings. Paraguay is a poor country, and it certainly shows in the capital. Paraguay has the honour of holding the world record for the largest barbeque, when 30 000 diners attended the record-breaking attempt.
Those who have travelled in Vietnam will no doubt have seen and heard the phrase “Same, Same but different”. Today’s photos, actually the same photo, started out as one photo, but was given the photoshop treatment. The first photo was the original colour photo, almost as it came out of the camera…..
But then changed in Photoshop into a black & white photo, then converted to sepia to give it an old fashioned look, before editing it so that just the yellow chair and box remained in their original colours. Finally, add the frame and bob’s your uncle…..
Same, same but different, as they say.
