Fisherman

Fisherman

Nothing fishy going on here, just a swift post of a fisherman that I saw while walking around one of the parks in Bergen, Norway.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Bergen blue

Bergen blue

Just a quick post and run today – this is another scene from Bergen, Norway. It’s a very picturesque place that I didn’t seem to enjoy when I first got there, but certainly warmed to towards the end of my trip.

Happy turkey day :)

Trygonometric

Trygonometric

A lovely little scene that I found while walking around Bergen.

I was down by a dock checking out the boats and view across a stretch of water when I turned around and saw this lovely building with some great features on the side. I just love the placement of the safety ring, ladder and window here. I’m also quite fond of the blurry reflection that’s viewable in the window.

Happy hump day all!

Shadows & ghosts

Often I’ll find myself having a sudden moment of inspiration on a scene and I just want to shoot it for no reason.

Here, I simply wanted a rest.

I had been walking around for quite some time and entered this area which, for some reason, had been cordoned off by Heras fencing. After working my way around the fencing I found myself in this little alcove, and with a few benches behind me I thought it was a perfect place to sit and rest for a while, so why not set up for a couple of 7 minute exposures while I was at it.

No real motivation or drive to shoot, but a feeling of ‘why not?’ while I was there any way.

Bergen sunset

Bergen sunset

It seems like much longer ago that just last weekend when I was wandering around Bergen.

I had visited this popular viewing point a couple of times during my trip, and here I was thankful to actually see a sunset – it certainly didn’t have one the previous night.

Shortly after taking this I was rushing back down the mountain so that I could head to the airport and jump on a flight home. In fact, I believe I jumped on the very same funicular car that you can see coming up the rails in this image.

Bergen by train

Bergen by train

There’s not much going on at the train station in Bergen on a Sunday morning. It’s surprisingly empty of both trains and people for what used to be the capital of Norway.

While here I played around with the ticket machine and it seems to think it would take me 3 connections and 15 hours to travel from Bergen to a nearby village if I were to go via train. Google Maps had it down as an hour and half walk.

Still, a train station is a train station and there is always something photogenic about these lovely arched roofs. The lack of people simply made it easier for me to grab a shot and move on to my next destination.

I hope you have a great weekend everyone.

Bergen bandstand

Bergen bandstand

There’s not much to say about this one; it’s a bandstand, and it was in Bergen.

There we go; my work here is done.

Have a happy Thursday.
