Sometimes images don’t get recognized immediately. After downloading it from the memory card, it got buried in the todo-pile, and it took quite a while until I unearthed it. Only when playing around with the overall contrast and the rendering of the textures – there’s still some headroom – I noticed small details that finally made me decide in favor of the image.
Other than pursuing my photography hobby, I am holding my breath and clenching my teeth watching the events in Fukushima as well as Libya. Whilst in the first case it seems to be much easier to pinpoint the sequence of wrong decisions starting 40 years back, Libya is truly a minefield. I am old enough to remember the different perspectives on Ghaddafi’s leadership – Lockerbie immediately comes to mind – that I now suspiciously follow the new volte-faces of our revered leaders. I hope I will be wrong, but I could imagine that again no genuine interest in improvements for the people of Libya and the whole region is the guideline, instead only badly disguised seeking for the the momentary advantage decides the actions.
