Thought for the day….”Life without liberty is like a body without spirit.”

Autumn is a good time to get around to sorting the thousands of photos that are sitting on discs and hard drives. Those of us over about 30 years old will remember that at one time, you only got 36 pictures (37 if you were lucky) on a roll of film, and even on a long holiday, you did not come back with thousands of photos. But with digital cameras, it is far too easy to click away and end up with hundreds of photos. I am looking back at my earlier photos and putting them through a test. First question is “would I be proud to show this photo to somebody else? ” and the second question “is this photo special to me?” If the answer to both questions is NO then it is time to hit the delete button. Rather like pruning trees after the summer, it will result in a leaner, cleaner and better photo collection. Hit that delete button !
Classical buildings in the Frogner part of Oslo for the photo today, originally a colour photo that I have converted to Black & White.
and another photo, the lunchtime Wideroe Dash 8 Q300 aircraft arriving in Honningsvag, in North Norway. This is only about 30km from the North Cape, which is claimed to be the top of Europe at over 71 degrees north. That said, North Cape is actually on an island (Mageroya) so whether or not it is actually the northernmost point of Europe is debatable. ALL PHOTOS ON THIS SITE ARE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE
RESPECT,CONSIDERATION & FAIRNESS

Thought for the day….”Success – keeping your mind awake and your desire asleep.”
“Sooner or later, those who win are those who think they can.”
Two photos from the opposite sides of the Earth….the first is a Tiger Moth aircraft seen here in Pembroke, New Zealand. This type of aircraft was designed in the 1930s by the De Havilland company, who went on to make over 8800 of them. Many pilots learnt to fly in these, and they are still popular for teaching pilots their initial tail wheel training. Typically, it had a 120hp Gypsy Moth engine, which required hand starting as there was no electrical system in the aircraft. Top speed was 140 knots.
and another photo….the lunchtime Wideroe Dash 8 aircraft arriving at Honningsvag in Artic Norway. The aircraft carries 50 passengers, and is often used in Norway on the ‘milk run’ service in northern Norway, stopping at many of the isolated towns along the coast.
