Thought for the day…”The hardest thing is to take less when you can get more.” “Obstacles are things a person sees when he takes his eyes off his goal.”
Road rage has now spread to airports as well. The security checks, long queues and long waits and hassles over baggage mean that people are more stressed than ever. Airlines have shot themselves in the foot by charging for baggage, as now you see people trying to drag on as much as they can…not uncommon to see them with 3 and sometimes 4 bags. Airline policies may be wrong, and a lot of the things that airlines are now doing ARE unreasonable, but what is not fair is when you see people’s anger at airports directed at the wrong people – the people working on the check-in desks or at the gate. These are not the people who have made the rules, they are the ones who are given the unfortunate task to enforce them though. So it is sad to see passengers at airports getting angry with the wrong people, especially as many of them work for ground companies who are only contracted by the airlines. By all means get angry with the airlines and the people who have made the mistakes, but make sure that the anger is directed at the correct people. The person in front of you at the desk or gate may not be the right one.
Late afternoon low sunlight lights up the main street of Brienz, Switzerland for the photo today. Many of the houses in this area date from the 1700s.
and another photo from the archives – a boat waits at Brienz, Switzerland for the return trip to Interlaken.

RESPECT, CONSIDERATION & FAIRNESS
Thought for the day…”It is better to walk alone than walk with a crowd going in the wrong direction”.
“You cannot hang out with negative people and expect a positive life”.
Winter is a great time to sit inside and sort out the thousands of photos. In the last century, in the days of 35mm film, you were very careful before you took a photo because you only had 24 or 36 exposures on each film (38 if you were very lucky when you put the film in). Now, with cameras that will take 8 or 10 photos a second, then sorting photos has become a mammoth task. Before, you sent the film away for processing, and the shop did all the work for you, whereas now you have to download the photos, label them and file them yourself, as well as editing them. One great advantage of the Fuji system is that the jpegs straight out of the camera are SO good, which means that much less editing is needed. Still got FAR too many photos though, but at least I am spending much less time on editing now. Two photos from the city centre in Bergen, Norway, both taken earlier this year with the Fuji X-T10 camera and standard 18-55mm kit lens.
