Johan Falkberget who told the story of the mining community from the perspective of the hard-tested miners at the bottom of the social ladder.

Rabbit Ears

Black And White Photography, David, Photography

Yes, sometimes they can ruin a picture. But, I know these three very well and they are always great company. We were attending a formal occasion (the British ambassador was in attendance )to celebrate the Caledonian Society of Norways 75th anniversary. I say formal however there was also a great deal of fun as can be seen here. A great night was had by all.

There was a crooked house II

This shot was from closer up. It’s very contrasty because the sun was quite strong. It kind of gives it a charred look.

There was a Crooked house

Just over the bridge from last weeks shot I found this old farmhouse which time, the wind and snow, had worked away at for many years. The whole place was leaning over.

Big Silver Moose

Black And White Photography, David, Photography

Probably the worlds biggest at over 10 mtr.’s.There is always an argument going on with the Canadians other who has the biggest one. I don’t really care but it makes a nice motif.

Early one misty morning

Black And White Photography, David, Photography

My wife and I went camping. Unfortunately/fortunately I was woken up very early because of a cock crowing in a nearby farmyard. I made myself a drink and looked down at the river. An early morning mist was rolling along it so I walked down to the bridge and took this, The lady on the bridge was someone from the campsite with the same idea.It’s a rare landscape shot for me but I like it. I have some more to share in the following weeks stay tuned.

Alice’s wedding II

Black And White Photography, David, Photography

I thought before moving on from my stint as wedding photographer I’d share this shot. Alice is just adjusting her gown. This shot just worked for me, and originally this was a much larger 28mm shot which I cropped heavily. The huge sensor on the Q2 gives you room for this. I’ve never been a student of the “Never crop a photo.” school It’s my photo, my story. I’ll crop the shot to fit my vision.

This is my niece by marriage Alice. She got married 3 weeks ago. I took my Q2M along and didn’t get in the way of the official photographer. But I bet my Black and whites were better…ps only joking
