Last light of the day….peace and tranquility

Thought for the day…”  You are never too old to feel young”    ” Life is not a rehersal, it is the real thing”.

Rather nice story in the news on the BBC (and a good news one too) about a runner in Portsmouth, England who used a running app and GPS to propose to his girlfriend.     He used a running app to track his route, which spelt out the words “will you marry me” as a way of proposing to his girlfriend.     After posting the route online, his girlfriend said yes.     A novel way to propose !!

Peace and tranquility for the photo today….last light of the day in a small bay on Pralin, Seychelles.   Just a lone fisherman and the breeze, captured with the Fuji X-E1 and a 50-200m lens.  A good photo needs good light, and both these photos had it.   The high quality of the Fuji lens also made these photos.

Down By The River – Brazil

Thought for the day…” If the sky is the limit, then what is space, over the limit?”

”  Do coffins have lifetime guarantees?”

Another two photos from Brazil, and from the southern part around Florianapolis.   Florianapolis is based around one main island, and has a population of around 420 000 people.  I.T and tourism (including surfing) are the main occupations here, and the area has been voted as the best area of Brazil to live in.   Some villages still rely on fishing, but officials are attempting to make the area the ‘silicon valley’ of Brazil.   Long, white sandy beaches and small bays make it a popular tourist destination, including increasing numbers of international tourists.   It also hosts annual surfing and paddle board competitions.   The photos below come from the Barra De Lagoa area, where a small channel connects the lake to the sea.
