Images of a Big Island

How was your day?


Hi, I trust you all survived Xmas and New Years in good shape!
These are a couple of images that show how “lucky” we are here in Australia and indeed most Western countries.
Electricity is something we take for granted but in many poorer countries like Fiji, daily tasks are still done by hand because electricity is not available outside towns.
Daily tasks such as cooking, cleaning, washing etc become a little more difficult and time consuming.

It’s not all bad though, they usually manage to turn it into a bit of a social event that keeps everybody involved laughing. And they build some of these villages on some prime real estate as well.
But, next time your washing machine goes on the blink, remember it could be a lot worse!

    That Wash Cycle image is a corker! Magic DOF and angle. To be honest, I often wonder just how much better off we are with our modern gadgets…imagen having time to sit on a rock in a river and do a spot of washing. Sounds OK to me.

    It can be hard work for them at times but they seem to be pretty happy with life generally.
