A seat by the window

This shot is yet another from the hospital. According to my records taken with my Nikon F4s and my trusty Nikon 20mm AIS. As the film was colour (Kodak 400asa) it was mini-lab developed ,and I scanned the negs at home with my Epson V700. It’s grainy but I think it just adds to this shot.

My wife and I attended a local exhibition by a known (Maybe not so well) by Lul Krag(1878-1956). As she drew and painted in charcoal and black ink this shot could have made it onto this page without me adjusting it. However I have done a straight conversion and only added the frame this is straight out of the camera (…well almost).

Goodnight. Sleep tight.

Bed frames on an abandoned ward at the hospital. The stuff where your imagination takes over and, nightmares begin.

This is a shot I took in 2011 when I did more urban exploration than I do today.
I took this at an old derelict hospital not far from my home. It has been sealed off and emptied in the past few years, and is no longer so much fun to photograph.

20190601-untitled shoot-32-Edit-Edit…last week you asked me to keep my junkyard shots coming. However I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share with you my other passion. Cycling.
Last Saturday the annual Tour of Norway passed even closer to my doorstep than it did last year. Here they are speeding over our local bridge ( 5mins walk from my house).What makes the shot for me is the two spectators on the railings on the opposite side of the road. The sky was dark and foreboding too as it had threatened a downpour all afternoon. Still I got home before the heavens opened.

…and Joe I promise to look out some more junkyard shots for you very soon.

(Bunad = National Costume)

By the time you read this, it will be Saturday 18th May. Yesterday, the 17th was Norways national day. Parades, marching bands, hot dogs and, ice cream. The whole country goes mad just for a day…Then everything returns to normal.

This is another forgotten car just left to let nature take its course at this wonderful abandoned junkyard in Sweden.
Some have trees and bushes growing through them.

This wasn’t a re-vist to the place just one of the many shots I have in my archive.
this rusty old van is just one of the many quietly rusting in peace just across the border in Sweden.
