While out on a walk in Oslo this summer I stumbled on this elephant by the river. Seemed worth a shot or two.

One of my favourite parts in the park is a little section with babies. This statue is only about a foot high but it really makes you stop to think about life, and what a wonderful precious thing it is .
These two are without any doubt my favourite subjects in Frognerpaken. They are just so touchingly human. These two strike a deep seated chord in me. I have many shots of these two dating back to the mid eighties. I’ve tried to capture what they mean to me ,and I fall short each time They don’t age,which means I’ve got plenty of chances yet,and they are always fun to meet again.
If you get to meet them Say hello for me ;0)
The 19.5-foot-tall bronze Statue of Freedom by Thomas Crawford crowns the dome of the United States Capitol. The original plaster model for the statue is on display in the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center, where it is the focal point of Emancipation Hall.
(Fun fact – capitol with an “o” stands for the building; capital with an “a” stands for the city. How to remember? I learned to think of a bell tolling in a building. Clever, right?)
Things to do in the Center:
