photo hunt: technology


Photo Theme - Join the blogroll - Visit participants.

This week's theme wasn't easy at all since I don't have a concrete idea under the term technology... So after giving it some thought I decided to use some skiing pics (oh, not again!!!) because I am aware technology plays a decisive role in making this sport not only possible but also a safe one as well.

Let me begin with my bindings: glittering gold, just what a gal needs on the slopes- with matching golden skis of course! I remember the old ones with a leather strap, the ones which are nowadays used as decoration. New, improved technology increases skiing comfort and stability, or so they say, I am simply pleased skis are nowadays so easy to put on.



I am amazed that technology makes this sort of lifts possible. It's here where I notice technology is moving faster than the high-speed ski lifts .Below is the Saulire cable car with capacity for 140 people and it all hangs from a cable...

  2. Oh yeah, technology. But I doubt I'd ever step into a thing like that big box... Eww, no!

  3. Cool pics showing how technology is used in sport.

    I went in a similar cable car in Rio which took us up the Sugar Loaf Mountain. in fact it is the one used in the film 'Moonraker'.

  12. I'm glad skiing is safer now. They may even have technology in the lodge. One of my friends has a remote control for his fireplace!

  14. Oh ! a golden girl, very chic, only diamonds are missing ! and the hanging cabine looks like a lifted up bus lol ! But it's true in this sport amazing things have been invented ! The sticks, cloths, shoes everything. It's a very good idea of you, all others mostly show TV or mobiles. Me too, but also digged in the past.

    Thanks for the link, very kind of you, I looked up the templates, but for my colored temperament they are too soft, lol !

  19. The technology really helps keep to the slopes but I think you still have to factor in the human side of it!

  32. Sharp skis.
    I would be too frightened to get on the lift though - I am so scared of heights.
    Be careful on the slopes.
    And thanks for the lovely comment.
    Waving at you from New York,
