Both from Bergen, buildings & bridges

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.

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….

Street life in Mozambique – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day….” In the race for quality, there is no finish line”.

” If you look back when going forward, then you will trip up sometimes”.

Georgina Galloway was the winner of the 2013 Perfect Woman Competition, which as usual, was held in Wanaka, New Zealand.  In this competition, contestants (all women!!) have to perform a number of tasks, which this year included knife throwing, skinning a rabbit, jetboat driving,  reversing with a trailer and taking off bottle tops with a chainsaw.   Unlike many competitions, this annual perfect woman competition relies on skills rather than beauty.   The winner can choose either a pallet of beer or NZD 1000 cash instead.  Another wonderful tradition from New Zealand.

Some street life from Mozambique in the photo here.  Until 1975 it was a Portuguese colony, hence Porgutuese is still the official language.  The famous Zambesi river runs through Mozambique before entering the Indian Ocean.  Interestingly, the flag of Mozambique shows an AK-47 rifle!!  It has borders with 6 countries, and a population of about 24 million, with about 1.2 million living in the capital, Maputo.
