Thought for the day…” Fear is the father of courage and the mother of safety”.
” Do not waste time looking back. Your eyes are in the front of your head”.
Did you see that alarming story on the internet about the British retail chain, Tesco is planning to use computers to scan the faces of customers filling up with petrol (gas) at its petrol stations, then target them with appropriate advertisements, based on their age, sex and demographic profile? If successful, it plans to introduce the scanning of faces into supermarkets as well. Is this not Big Brother in real life? With the supermarket shopper cards, it already has a massive amount of information about personal buying habits, but the thought that it plans to now scan faces is taking things too far.
On a happier note, here is a photo of a happy trader in China, not far from the border with Tibet. Something was obviously amusing here, but it captures the moment well. Good lighting and a long lens helped to catch the shot, which was taken during the weekly market. A simple, uncluttered background finishes off the photo well.
