Pictureposting from Bergen, action in the neighborhood.

Some days ago, the street was filled up with firetrucks and other rescue cars,
in the building across the street the fire alarm was going of.
The fire people and police could not make any contact with the person living there. they tried to ring the door but nobody answered.
  
The solution was to use the lift truck and knock the windows. It actually helped, the person who lives there opened the windows and waved to the fire brigade..
  
They packed up their stuff and left .
 
The reason for the alarm, dry coking... Allot of smoke but no fire.

At the end.

Back from Oslo

I'm back.
This was one of the most interesting and best curs I've done in a long time.

I partly promised some pictures, but the biggest problem is the short time of daylight in wintertime. We spend all day in classroom and when the day was over and we where leaving, it was pitch dark and not the best opportunity to take any photos.

But some i manage to take.

This one is from the flight to Oslo, and shows the Hardangervidden
 
 This next one i in Oslo and show the Aker Brygge 08:30 in the morning
  
 And at the end the city hall in Oslo, also pictured in the morning

Boring sunday

I've been so bored today.
The rain is poring down and the wind is pretty strong, but i manage to go for a walk in between the rain and hale.

I was late for my walk today and the daylight was fading away. To keep up the quality with high ISO (800) i had to take B&W pictures, could have used colors too but my opinion is when i use high ISO B&W is best.


The three following pictures are from my neighborhood in Bergen, more specific Nordnes



Link to Google Maps
The first two pictures are taken with the orange marker, and the last one is with the yellow marker in the map.

It's a seven meter high monument located at Torgallmenningen. Made by Dyre Vaa (1903-1980) in 1950. Consists of 12 statues and four relief in two heights.

 
  
  
This is a wooden sculpture.

This is some other kind of art. 
 
The great son of Bergen.

Then we are back to my favorite place. Bryggen (Bergen Harbor) this time i did as you can see, in B/W

Bergen history lesson..

 Vikings..
Yes we are the Vikings, and we are always ready....
 
 Noo. I'm just joking.
This one is a replica from one of the many ships we had. It was working by sail or by rowing.
It's named after the King Haakon Haakonsson
 
In the front, they always put some creatures to scare of the enemy 
  
This one is not a Viking.
Here name was "Madam Felle" and in the old days she had a bar/pub where people could come and get drunk..
  
At the bottom of the statue it shows how they believe it was
  
Back to old history again.
This is the place of the first woman hospital (st. catherine's hospital)
  
  
  
And now at the end we are entering the Bryggen Museum (Harbor museum) 
This is from the old old parts, who was burned down in year 1170
Her is items from excavation and from old buildings in Bergen
  
  
  
  
Thise one shows toys.
On the right you kan see a early model of a ice skate, there is allso a ball and some other stuff.
  
This is a model of the old Bergen around year 1200 - 1300
around year 1300 Bergen was a trading center of European importance. The city had between 5 and 10,000, maybe about 7,000 inhabitants, and was clearly the largest and most important in the country. In European standards was a averige big city.
  
This is one of the Norwegians Kings (Magnus Lagabøte), in old old days Bergen was the capitol of Norway and the place the Kings ruled the country
  
Thise one shows the clothing and work/home
  
 This was all for now, hope you found it interesting.
And as usual.
