Time to Delete…..

Thought for the day….”Life without liberty is like a body without spirit.”

“Obstacles are things a person sees when he takes his eyes off his goal.”

Autumn is a good time to get around to sorting the thousands of photos that are sitting on discs and hard drives.   Those of us over about 30 years old will remember that at one time, you only got 36 pictures (37 if you were lucky) on a roll of film, and even on a long holiday, you did not come back with thousands of photos.   But with digital cameras, it is far too easy to click away and end up with hundreds of photos.    I am looking back at my earlier photos and putting them through a test.   First question is “would I be proud to show this photo to somebody else? ”  and the second question “is this photo special to me?”    If the answer to both questions is NO then it is time to hit the delete button.   Rather like pruning trees after the summer, it will result in a leaner, cleaner and better photo collection.    Hit that delete button !

Classical buildings in the Frogner part of Oslo for the photo today, originally a colour photo that I have converted to Black & White.

Photo of the day Thursday 6th December 2012 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day….” Living a life is easy; it’s the options in life that makes it difficult.”

A black and white photo today, to match the weather outside.   A photo from the Vigeland Sculpture Arrangement (which I always called the Vigeland Park until I read about it), which is situated in the Frogner Park in Oslo.   Apparently, between 1 and 2 million people a year visit the 212 statues,  which are made of bronze or stone.  All the statues were designed by Gustav Vigeland, and show the stages of life, with most of the dating to around the 1940s.  One of the more popular tourist attractions in the Norwegian capital of Oslo.
