Taken on the same coffee break as last weeks shot. Rodger was too cool to pose for me instead I took this shot when he leaned over to see what I was doing. I think it worked better in the end.

This shot like last weeks was taken during a coffee break. I love what the wide angle lens can do to a portrait. Tor-Haakon is a really friendly guy, and I think this show in this shot.

Bjørn Tore is usually a lot more active than this shot shows. I took this shot of him during a coffee break. I broke most of the rules of composition because I wanted to include the workshop.

I said some weeks ago that I will be getting back to a more analogue way of doing things. This involved me lugging around( with smile on my face I might add) my Hasselblad and a 40mm lens. I did a series of lighthearted – lets call them snaps some years back I called @work. Just taken at work of people I could persuade to get in front of the camera. So this is a repeat of that. Anders is a much better photographer than me so I was pleased he didn’t mind me taking this shot of him during a break.

Last Friday I attended a mini-concert by a popular Norwegian band Trang Fødsel. (Translation: Difficult Birth). At the end the Bass player got up on his bass to thank the crowd.

Beach Huts in Black and White

From a summer holiday a couple of years ago. The local beach near to where my sister lives in the UK has these small huts which are well maintained, and function as a home away from home for the lucky few. I liked the clouds that day they always can be used to add a little drama to a shot. I deliberately took a low angle and shot upwards . I love the diverging verticals of the huts too like they are being squeezed ever so slightly.

Waiting for Edvald

Black And White Photography, David, Photography

 

20180516-untitled shoot-11-Edit-2As some of you may know, I have more than a passing interest in cycling. On the 16th of May the professional “Tour of Norway” passed my way. I arrived early at my chosen vantage point at least an hour before the riders turned up. People were already out and about eagerly awaiting the riders and,given the next day was a national holiday everyone was in a festive mood.

If you have ever wondered what would make a person stand by the roadside to watch 30 seconds of cycling go past haven’t thought about the fun had by the supporters beforehand. The chance of seeing a superstar whizz past is a bonus. In no other sport can Joe-public get so close to their idols.

If you are left wondering whom this Edvald is I’m talking about one of Norways cycling superstars Edvald Boasson Hagen.

The Tour of Norway passed close to my doorstep on Wednesday this week. Being I am a big cycling fan I placed myself where I knew they would have to take a sharp lefthand turn. I lay in the grass with my camera ready and shot off a load of images. After the leaders and the main Peloton had blasted past a straggler from the Uno-X team came into view. He threw his empty bottle away and that was my souvenir of the day…plus this shot. So whomever you were (I didn’t get your number) thank you.

17th of May

Black And White Photography, David, Photography

Yes next week it’ll be the 17th of May, National Day. For one day the whole of Norway is in party mood. Parades, National dress, ice cream, marching bands, and waving royalty, the whole works. It’s always fun to watch with everyone in their finery.

So Think of Norway on the 17th, and maybe raise a glass to celebrate with us.
