When I lack of inspiration to write a new post (fact: happens very often) or I am just drowning in a sea of pictures from the last shooting or travel, I use to go back in time and review old pictures. Look at things with some distance can be very helpful… sometimes.

I try not to stay in the past for a long time, otherwise I can end up feeling kind of  dizzy, but I just may find something insparing and that will make the day for me.

In normal circumstances, your skills should improve with time and practice, but it also true that some ingenuity is lost.

September is around the corner, so it is Kustom Day!

Since Spainair’s president Ferran Soriano, decided to cease the airline operation last 27th of January due to his disastrous management and cowardice along with many other political intererests, Spanair employees, the most valuable asset of this family, are living difficult times.

But today has been a special day. A day to be proud of. A day to be remembered because of the greatness of this great family and specially because of two of his fellow members, Lennart Cromstedt and  Luca Abbamonte.

Since Spanair decided not to pay employees insurance for illness and disability without informing them of this decision (although this concept has been appearing in the payslip until the last one), Luca Abbamonte, who is siriously ill of cancer, and his familiy, have been left to their luck by the company and any other public administration. Shameful.

But now and then, someone turns up and does what it has to be done. A hero, representing the people and families fighthing for their rights. Heroic.

Lennart Cromstedt, Spanair flight attendant, has covered more than 600 kilometers (more than 370 miles) running from Barcelona to Madrid in 15 days, in an heroically unprecedented act to rise money for his fellow Lucca and protest against the closure of the airline.

This an example in all the ways for everyone, myself in first place. Something to think about before we want to throw in the towel next time when facing our big daily problems.
