The photo today comes from Svolvaer, the ‘capital’ of the Lofoten Islands in Norway. About 4500 people live in this town which was built on cod fishing. Nowadays, summer tourism is very important with about 200 000 tourists visiting each year. It is served by ferries from Bodo on the mainland and also by a regional airport. Day trips operate from here to the nearby Trollfjord and also Rafsundet. Being Norway, everything is VERY VERY expensive, making a holiday here a costly trip. When a Norwegian is asked to name something that is cheap in Norway, they usually struggle to think of ANYTHING that is cheap. The words ‘cheap’ and ‘Norway’ do not go together.
and another photo…..the very small village of Urke in the Norwegian fjords. Both of the photos today were taken as jpegs using the Fuji X-T10 camera.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving” (Einstein).
Two photos to show contrast today….the first photo is from New Caledonia and the second photo from Dhaka, Bangladesh. One big advantage of the Fuji X camera system is that the photos straight out of the camera (jpeg) are so good. I have stopped taking RAW photos now, as the jpeg pictures are great. Much faster to just shoot in jpeg now, and it also means much less time spent on the computer processing photos (which is great !!). Purists will argue that a RAW photo has more detail, but it takes a lot of determination to sit at the computer for many hours converting RAW files. The fun for me is in taking the photos, not in spending hours at the computer trying to get them right. I still end up with far too many photos but that is digital photography. Back in the days of 35mm film, when you only had 36 pictures on a roll (38 if you were lucky), then you really had to think before you pressed the shutter. Not now, with the memory card easily holding 3000 photos and a camera which will take 6 photos a second.
compare the beauty of the photo above with the chaos in the photo below ……same planet but……
