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

A new change in life and buzzy times

I got an offer from my work:-)

They offer me a trainee job at a different office, in a different part of the city...And i start this Friday.
It's so nice to bee giving that opportunity learn more and i accepted. of course :-)


To morrow  I'm going to Oslo, for a course. It's a two days course and by coincidence it's a course in the same subject as the trainee job.

I'm going to bring my camera, so if it's some time left I'm going to use it as much as possible. Hopefully i can give you some nice pictures.

........see you later........

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.

That's My World - Bergen city

I have had some day of from work and today i vent for a morning walk. It has been a cold but sunny day, and we have been out for two long walks today.

First of all, a picture from my neighborhood. As you can see, the sun is shining..

This next 4 pictures are of a monument for the Norwegian sea trawlers who trough all time since the Vikings, in War and peace had their work and living at sea.
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.
the last few years, the school of art build some sculpture and place it in city
  
This is some other kind of art. 
 
The great son of Bergen.
Ole Bull, if you want to read more about him just hit the link
  
Then we are back to my favorite place. Bryggen (Bergen Harbor) this time i did as you can see, in B/W  
  
When i was down at the  harbor i met these two guys, they where enjoying the morning sun and the morning drink. It looked like something stronger then beer :-)
