Black & White or colour….which is best ?????

Thought for the day…” Broken pencils are pointless”       “Jokes about German sausages are the wurst”

Lots of fun to go back through the photo collections and re-edit the photos….and also get rid of a lot of earlier attempts.   Two versions of the same photo today, from the Spanish island of Menorca.  All photos from the Fuji X series….with the standard 18-55mm kit lens.    See which you like the best.  Same photo but one is converted to B & W.     My vote goes to the black & white version….

Canterbury hills in evening light – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day….’ When one door closes, another door opens, but we often look so long and so regretfully at the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us”   Alexander Graham Bell.

I used to fly a lot with Norwegian Airline.   In the beginning they were reliable and good, but recently have decided to outsource their cabin crews.  Just before Christmas they made their Swedish-based staff redundant but the staff were able to continue to work via an employment agency (albeit with worse working conditions).     Redundancy must have been a lovely Christmas present from the company to its staff.   Not only that, but the airline is crewing its new long-haul flights with Thai staff, presumably because it is a lot cheaper.    The same thing happened onboard ships earlier, the end result being that jobs are lost in many countries when the workers are replaced by cheaper foreign crews.    So now Norwegian Airline is at it too.  So from now on I will try and avoid flying with Norwegian Airlines.   Companies that treat staff like this do not deserve support.

Looking almost like a painting in the soft light of evening, the photo today is from Spotswood in the Canterbury region of New Zealand.  This area is a big sheep farming area, although vineyards are also becoming popular as well.   Just crossing the lower part of the picture is the main north-south railway line which nowadays only sees one passenger train a day during the summer months, as well as regular freight trains.

Market Colour – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day…” Vision is the art of seeing the invisible”

“If communication is they key, then why not open the door? ”

Some unusual news on the internet at the moment, like the story that the music of Britney Spears (such as ‘Hit Me Baby One More Time) is being used onboard ships to scare off Somali pirates.   Apparently, hearing the songs remind the pirates of western culture, and the sound of her singing is enough to deter an attack !!   Also in the news on the internet are the reports of an AirNewZealand aircraft skidding off the runway at Auckland airport on a short flight to Taupo.   The only ‘injuries’ reported were to a passengers strawberries!!!   And did you know that the characters in the ‘Simpsons’ shows only have 4 digits on their hands instead of five?

Some colour from the market for the photo today, and a close up.   Sometimes it pays to fill the viewfinder with colour, and to also get in close.  As always, good light makes a difference, as do the unusual shapes in this picture.  And getting in close has helped to cut out a lot of the distractions around the outside.

Nicaragua Lake Sunset – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day…” Alcohol is not the answer, it just makes you forget the question”.

” Forever can be only tomorrow”            ” Does age come with experience, or experience with age?”

Off to Central America for today’s photo, and to Nicargua.  With a population of around 6 million, Spanish-speaking Nicaragua borders both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.   Interestingly, there are no street names, and addresses are given with references to nearby landmarks.    Managua, the capital, has a population of around 1 million.   Agriculture is the main industry, although it remains a poor country, with (according to the UN) around 48% of the population below the poverty line.    Tourism is now the second major industry.  The photo was taken at Ometepe, a volcanic island on Lake Nicaragua.”

Photo of the Day Thursday 6th June 2013 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day…” Dreams do not work unless you do. ”                   ”  There is no failure except giving up”.

” Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts”  (Winston Churchill).

I read on the BBC news that Germany has now lost its longest word, all 63 letters of it (Rindfleischetikettierungsueberwachungsaufgabenuebertragungsgesetz)   which meant ‘law delegating beef monitoring’.     Luckily, there is no need anymore for the word, so it has disappeared.   The longest word in the German dictionary will now be “Kraftfahrzeughaftpflichtversicherung’    which means automotive liability insurance.  Very useful if you are playing Scrabble.  The world record score in Scrabble is for the word CAZIQUES, which scored 392 points.   The highest total score in a game of Scrabble is 830 points.  In 1984, Peter Finan and Neil Smith played Scrabble for 153 hours.

Today’s photo shows boats in a harbour in Morocco.  If you look closely, then you will spot a single figure hopping from boat to boat.
