Splash of colour – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day…” Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity”.

“Be nice to nerds.  Chances are that you will end up working for one”.   (Bill Gates).

Sometimes a simple photo works very well.   Today’s photo is a simple flower shot, but the plain background and good lighting make this photo work.    If you have not already discovered it, then the website http://www.dpreview.com     is a great site to keep up to date with the latest developments in photography, as well as a being a good source of reviews and user reports on cameras and equipment.   The photo below was taken with a Panasonic FZ-150, although this camera will shortly be replaced.  After purchasing 4 Panasonic cameras in a row, I think that they are now slipping behind the competition (especially in regard to sensor size and resolution), so perhaps it is time to try another brand.

Heading to market in Pakistan – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day….” Those who forget where they came from tend to get lost where they are going”.

” Sometimes you have to take a leap at life and build your wings on the way down”

After all the stress and frustration of Emirates Airlines (see the last post for the details), I ended up cancelling the ticket completely.   No more bookings with Emirates Airlines, lesson has been learnt. But life goes on, just that I will never buy another ticket with an airline that has such bad customer ‘service’.

Today’s photo comes from the northern part of Pakistan, not far from the border with Afghanistan.   Another one of those lucky photos that you just have to take without thinking, yet the position of the donkey and cart and also the beggar were great for the photo.   As usual, another shot taken with a cheap Panasonic camera.

Color Magic inside – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day….” Today is tomorrow’s yesterday, so make it count !”

” Time is the longest distance between two places”.

Some magic for the photo today, and the interior of the Colorline ‘Color Magic’ ferry, which sails between Oslo (Norway) and Kiel (Germany) in around 20 hours.  The ferry is Norwegian registered, and is the largest ferry in the world,  weighing in at 75 156 tons and carrying 2700 passengers.  It has 15 decks, and a long promenade, as pictured below.   The 223m long ferry was built in Finland (as many of them are) and has a top speed of about 41kmh/25mph.  It can carry about 550 cars.   Although it is the world’s largest ferry, it is still small when compared to the world’s largest cruise ship, the Allure of the Seas, which weighs in at 225 000 tons, and is capable of carrying over 6290 passengers.

Not easy to get the white balance correct in this photo, as there were so many different lighting sources, but the Panasonic camera has done a good job to balance them all out.   The photo was handheld and without flash.

Another Autumn morning in Norway – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell

Thought for the day…..”  Do not talk, unless you can improve the silence”.

“Every day is a gift.  That is why they call it the present”.

Two nice stories in the news at the moment to bring a smile.   Firstly, the man in the UK who has set up a premium rate telephone line at home so that when he gets cold-callers and advertisers ringing him, then it costs the companies a lot of money and he also gets 70% of the proceeds of the premium rate telephone call.  Apparently he is now trying to keep advertisers on the phone as long as possible so that he gets even more money from them whilst they rack up a large bill on the premium rate number.     Then there is the other story about Hasan Syed, again in the UK, who paid to have his twitter tweet promoted, advising people not to fly with British Airways because their customer service is horrendous.   Normally it is advertisers who pay for promoted tweets, but Mr. Syed was able to use this system to give his complaint against BA huge publicity.

Autumn is well under way in Norway, and there have been some fantastic mornings recently.   Out with the camera again, to yet another lake, and more reflections and lake views in the photo today.   On the ground are many blueberries and wild mushrooms, and the some of the trees are now yellow and red (not the everygreens of course!).   About the only sound when I took the photo were the fish (trout) jumping in the lake.   The hunting season is underway now, mainly for elk, although also for deer, reindeer,mink and red foxes.   Being Norway, you have to have a license to hunt, and new hunters must undergo a 30 hour training course and then take a test.   Luckily, no test and license is needed to take photos like these.   I am looking at getting a new camera now (perhaps my 5th Panasonic in a row) but seeing results like these, then there is still a lot of life in the current camera.

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).
