Friday Photo Fatally Flawed

I’ve done the maths. My earnest endeavours to reduce the photo files via Friday Photo are completely unrealistic! In 5.3 years, on current performance I might have reduced the number to about 13,000. That’s assuming I don’t add any more photos. I’ll be totally bored and over it well before then.

Fortunately I can lighten up and chuckle at my own naivety. Time to rethink. Step one an app to remove duplicate files. I’m looking at Duplicate File Finder at the moment, (the free version) It will still be a slow process. Is it worth buying the paid version. Any recommendation from the Blogosphere on good Apps or approaches?

I nod have some really interesting images and I will start to post them over time. Think I need to get rid of a whole lot of stuff first.

Any help from others who have tackled this problem successfully would be a real boost.

Market in Magway Myanmar

Hand made pottery

This photo is for my fellow Marcus Beach Artisan, Michael Wootton, who is exhibiting his spiritual ceramic vessels at our upcoming ‘Expressions’ Exhibition. You would have loved this village Michael.

Yandabo is one of nine villages in Myanmar that make these traditional pots using first a foot-driven wheel, then hand beating the pots into their voluptuous shape. The pots are then fired in the open air. It takes considerable skill to build the wood, straw and dirt oven mounds, ensuring that all the pots reach the necessary firing temperature.

Betel leaf

What an enticing way to display this vine leaf, in a market at Magwe Myanmar. Betel leaf can be used to wrap foods such as peanuts or shrimps for a nutritious snack, cooked or added to salads. Not to be confused with betel nut which is the fruit of the Areca palm.

Pattern and colour wherever I look.

A touch of Pipilotti in Yangon

Nobody could resist this unlikely photo opportunity in the very up-market French Restaurant La Planeur in Yangon. Reminded me of sitting in the Pipilloti Rist living room installation at the Musuem of Contemporary Art in Sydney but there was no light show. The restaurant is an elegant place on the lakeside with good food, a shady outdoor eating area and this clever attention grabbing corner.
