Well not that old but it’s on board Fram a famous Norwegian Polar exploration vessel used on three polar expeditions from 1893-1912. Now on dry land at its museum in Oslo.

This was a grab shot of a couple in their wonderful old car. It was surprising to see in this little coastal village of Bud in Norway.

Rabbit Ears

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.

Rain dancing

Black And White Photography, David, Photography

This week has seen some very heavy rainfall. A local town near where I live received 82mm in 90 mins. That’s a Norwegian record.

Luckily for the first week of our 4 weeks holidays I’m at home. What to do in the rain? Have fun with my weather sealed camera, and getting to know my new photo editing software have been high on my list the past few days.

Take care.

At an Exhibition

With lockdown easing here in Norway it was possible to attend an exhibition of treasures loaned to a local gallery by the closed National Gallery. There were some real Norwegian treasures to look at. A great day out.
