Shooting the blimp and the sunset

Image hosted by
On Saturday gone, I was shooting the sunset up at the cross and arch on Mount St. Benedict (monastery).
(N.B. I hadn't actually started shooting at the time I took this photo. Physically impossible since the lens cover is still on).

Note the plane (BWee?) appearing as a small dot in the sky.
When I first got to the Mount that afternoon, the new red and blue blimp was floating over Champs Fleurs.

It then drifted (very!) noisily past the Mount and spent some time hovering over Tunapuna and environs ... before making its way back to the POS area. My video footage (one hour of it) features roughly five minutes of the blimp's distant, egg-shaped silhouette moving slowly across the space under the arch. Anyone watching the footage (who does not know about the blimp) may begin to believe in UFO's.

What is your take on the blimp? do you think it is worth it? and if you were the prime Minister of your country what steps would you put in place to deal with the issues affected our island?

No, I don't think the blimp is worth it. What has it achieved by 'patrolling the skies'? People see it as a joke, not as a crime-fighting mechanism.

Re if I were PM ... (apart from all the obvious things like revise laws, clean up the police force, etc.) ...

I'll address this question in tomorrow's post.
