Trying to be creative in these days of self-isolation. I used my Lego 50th anniversary Lunar module as subject matter for some table-top work.

Let’s get this out of the way to start with. I have said that I am not a landscape photographer. But just occasionally I take one that makes contact with my “photographic eye.” You know the one. It’s the one you downloaded to your computer and have overlooked until you were looking for something else, and you see this one shot that was right under your nose. This shot for me was one of those.

One of the cranes on the dockside at Pyramiden. It looks like it lifted its last load some time ago.

These were some of the living quarters at Pyramiden. There are plans to turn at least one of the blocks into a tourist hotel.

Swimming Pool and Pyramiden

Well last time I showed you the inside of the pool. Here’s a shot from the outside. A more desolate spot for a swimming pool you would have to search a long time for. The mountain in the background gives (no surprise here) the name to the township. Pyramiden.

Hi Everyone.

I hope you all made it safe and sound into the new year. My first shot this year is from the derelict kitchen at Pyramiden on Svalbard. The broken tile motif kind of fits the dereliction in my mind.

I should really have started this small series from Svalbard with this shot it’s the sign at the entrance to Pyramiden with the mountain that gives the place its name in the background.
