Houston – we have a problem

Thought for the day…”Happiness is good health and a bad memory.”

“Prosperity tries the fortunate, adversity the great.”   (Rose Kennedy).

You just have to feel sorry for the NASA astronaut who discovered recently whilst on a space walk that he had forgotten to put a memory card in his GoPro camera.    We have all done that, or have forgotten to recharge the camera batteries, but to be out in space on space walk and discover that you have no memory card in the camera must feel very bad, very bad.     And to make it even worse, the omission was even broadcast, the link for the video from NASA is here –

Back down on Earth, here is a photo from a religious even held in the Swiss town of Brig recently –

Five A Day, and colourful – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day…” Life is the art of drawing without an eraser”.

” Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like hard work” (Thomas Edison).

Another colourful market scene today, taken in bright sunlight which really made the colours stand out.    The idea was to get in closer and fill the shot with colour.   Certainly worked here.  The photo was taken a few years ago in a market in Split, Croatia.   At that time, the photos were taken as JPEG photos, which had the advantage of taking up less space on memory cards and also being ready to use without lots of editing.

The disadvantage of JPEG though is that it is a way of storing photos that compresses and loses quality, so every time that the photo is edited then it loses even more quality.    The big advantage of taking photos in RAW is that you get in effect a digital ‘negative’ so that you can make pictures from it and also edit it without destroying the original image data.    Once you get used to editing RAW images, then they are almost as quick as using jpeg pictures, albeit with larger file sizes.

I guess that anybody over about 20 years old will have missed out on the thrill and excitement of waiting for that envelope of photos to come back through the post from the processing laboratory, or the excitement (and frustration!) of waiting for the local Kodak or Fuji shop to process the photos.    Even one hour was a long time to wait sometimes……but now it is all instant and digital.

Autumn Morning in Norway – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day….”  If you have the ability to reach, the top is always vacant.”.

” A single step begins the journey of a thousand miles.”

Did you know that all the gold that has ever been mined (about 165 000 tons) would fit into two olympic-sized swimming pools?   And did you know that if you placed a diamond in an oven and raised the temperature to 763 degrees C, that the diamond would disappear?   And did you know that the total amount of money in a game of Monopoly is USD 15 140 ?   And did you know that the name ‘Microsoft’  came from the combination of the words ‘microcomputer’  and ‘software’.      And for chocolate, the world leader is Switzerland, where in 2012, each citizen ate an average of 11.9kg, Ireland was second with around 9.9kg/person.

Another beautiful autumn morning in Norway, with excellent clear light and still conditions for the photos.   Again, this photo is a combination of many smaller photos that have been joined together to produce one large, high resolution photo.   I had already planned this photo, so knew where to stand when the conditions were right, and I had also planned the individual photos that would go together to make up the large shot.   Again, it shows what you can do with a normal, cheap consumer camera (Panasonic).
