    Thank you, J-O.
    Yes I do try to look for different ways to make a photo in Kristiansund, but it's getting harder and harder.
    Anyway, my daughter managed to drag me out on yet another photo tour of the city, as her class will be photographing for the Nordic Light Intl. Photo Festival. Her project is the color red.
    Here are my pictures from this little tour of ours:

    Nope, we didn't go deep inland or down to the valleys on our tour. This is right in the middle of Kristiansund, near the Arena Nordvest (ice hall) and Dalen farm near Atlanten sports arens.
    This is two of the buildings owned by the Nordmøre museum.

    In the city, taken from Kaibakken towards Nedre Enggate. The KODAK-sign there (yello building) marks my favourite shop in town..., the photoshop (so to speak) Fotograf Engvig.

    The old tiny stairs by the Town Hall walls are now a part of history as this new wide iron one is just opened to the public

      They have also opened up the square by removing parts of the concrete blocks filled with soil for trees and flowers

      The old rescue vessel Hagbart Waage must be the one and only such vessel with a bulb. This bulb with a bow thruster was mounted just three weeks ago.
      This is the boat used to bring tourists and others to and from the island of Grip during the summer season.

      I thought no one would dare to do harm to our old sundbaat icon RAPP, but someone did. After fixing the vandalism, cameras and warnings are placed around the vessel

      RAPP from 1958 is a beauty. Built in Kristiansund, she's taken good care of by a group of friends-of-the-vessel society.

        Details from Caroline cinema, the out side area. This area is undergoing a renewal, which means climbing apparatus for kids, among other things. The Caroline square between the cinema, library and Comfort Hotel Grand also has free WiFi all around (a thing to remember when visiting the city)

        Well, Flickr said that was the last image of the tour, so until next time..., take care, live life and be kind.

          Thank you for this nice little walk. So many new views to me and that is everything else than repeating. So you are very successful in finding different ways to make photos. Thank you so much. Strange new steel stairs. I hope it is not getting too slippery, if wet or icy.

            Superb, Sterkoder! Actually one thing that impressed me a lot looking at so many of your recent images has been the 'blue sky days' which are not always a blessing photographically - I used to struggle with them during my '365 Skyscape years'!
            While our Captain has been delighting me recently with the brilliantly white snow landscapes beneath such skies, you have been using the often-unforgiving expanse of blue to photograph buildings and highlight their architectural details. You already know which my 'favourites' are!
            It is not often that you get similar weather from Kristiansund to Trondheim simultaneously with Edinburgh. I am stoically but gladly putting up with what the Scots call 'dreich' and dismal weather here so that you two can enjoy your photography so much - Yves too on his recent coastal voyage.

            But Vilde's project is red, not blue, so I look forward to what she makes of that. Best wishes Vilde

            The other comment on your photos Svein, although I've said it many times before, is your skill for feeling when b&w will work well. In the most recent posts it is particularly the nostalgia of Framnæs, and the 'then and now' of Mellemværftet in #1557.

              Nice and good looking, thank you for sharing!

                Thank you for taking time to comment. Always nice to read, and sometimes learn from and get inspired by.

                Ordered a couple of shoes before easter, and they came today. Drove into town to pick them up, and what do you know...., the southbound hurtigrute arrived followed by a vessel from Sea-Cargo line.
                My Pentax is never more than a reach away, so I drove over to Thon Hotel at Innlandet and the resulting images are following below

                The hurtigrute is docking and in front of the Port Authorities is the orange VICTOR HENSEN. Never seen that before.
                EDIT: Just found out that Victor Hensen is a multi purpose survey vessel operated by Jasmund Shipping GmbH. Built in 1975 by Schichau Unterweser AG in Bremerhafen.

                  Great photos, Svein. I recall a time during a stop at Kristiansund off the Lofoten. People came off the street behind to have a talk with us on the wharf to share thoughts on various things. That had never occurred before, so it was rather special. I will never forget those plutonic? walls of rock that seem to rule the city and houses, perched wherever it was possible.

                " I will never forget those plutonic? walls of rock that seem to rule the city and houses, perched wherever it was possible."

                Can't say I quite understand, as I have never (I belive?) seen a plutonic wall of rock, perched wherever it is possible in Kristiansund. Maybe it's because I'm blinded by living here for over 50 years

                  Svein, I did not phrase the statement properly. Sorry! I meant the houses appear to my Oz eyes, "perched where possible" on the rock. According to my geology of Norway book, the rock foundation under these houses (as viewed from the wharf, for example) is plutonic - or gabbro, which is similar. Too much wine tonight, perhaps. Hope you are well and I really like your photos.

                  Ah, now I see it all so clear.
                  Yes, the houses in Kristiansund are really built where ever possible, that's correct. Sorry for being so slow :-D ;-)

                In Kristiansund, inside the area Vågen close by Mellemværftet, it's a place called Kranaskjæret (with a history of its own).
                Now they are building a restaurant and facilities for guests visiting with private boats there, and we can all follow the building process via a videocamera set up by our local newspaper.
                Hope the link works in all countries.
                In the live video we can also see the Pier and the docking place for cruise ships. To the left, we can see the beautiful scooner IDEAL, as I'm sure I've told you about in another thread.

                Link: https://youtu.be/Q5cDD1LV-SQ

                This camera is live 24/, noe matter if there are construction workers there or not. Great view of the city.
                And as I experience right now, they have turned the camera just a bit to the left so we can all see the harbor and straight out the Markussundet inlet, and down on the hurtigrute dock :-)

                    The 13th Nordic Light International Festival of Photography started in Kristiansund Wednesday.
                    Big banners decorate the Sterkoder-building at the old Sterkoder ship yard, and when I say the Sterkoder letters are 6 by 8 meters, you all understand how big each banner is.
                    They are illuminated during the dark hours.

                      Awesome!

                      As far as I can see, this festival runs until tomorrow, Sunday April 29th 2018??

                      Would have loved to join this excursion tomorrow: http://www.nle.no/blogg/2018/2/20/fe...d-photo-safari

                        Yes, 29th was the last day. Next year the festival will run 8.-12. May.

                        My daughter and I are very happy with this years festival and lectures, we met Master Photographer and artistic director of the festival, Morten Krogvold, several other photographers and the principal of Norsk Fotofagskole in Trondheim.
                        My daughter had applied for the two year study to be a photographer there, and she had her interview with the principal Friday 27. April. She got the place, so now we're in search of a place to live for her in Trondheim, preferably near Ila.

                        Anyway, my daughter is also ending 13 years of school this autumn, and as such she is a "russ", as we call it in Norway. As a good father figure, I responded to her phone call to come and pick her up just now, and in doing that, I had to drive past the Sterkoder-building with the big banners. Just found out they are 11 x 11 meters.

                        Here are my two night photos of them

                          I especially like the second image, the illumination of the images is great. The first image is also great and shows a little of the atmosphere "on site".

                          Two images with two very different moods.

                            What has happened since the last time I was in here???? Has Photobucket given up on getting the $500,- for third party use of images? All of mine are intact again.

                            Anyway, here are a few from this years constitution day, 17th May. My daughter has just finished 13 years of school, so she's a "russ" this year and I "had to" dress up and go to town to try and capture a few shots.

                            First, the small tanker, once a live stock carrier from Scotland. This is KYSTBUNKER, which originally did not have a bulb and she was shorter

                            Handmade scooner IDEAL and SAR vessel ERIK BYE. Scooner IDEAL is soon to go to Oslo. She will leave on the last day of May and the plan is to get a complete set of sails in Oslo, before returning to Kristiansund again.

                            A few years ago it was popular to have cars painted either blue or red among the "russ". This year it was only one. In Bærum near Oslo, students use almost a million on "russ" buses, only to use them for two weeks. In Kristiansund they used NOK 100,- on that car...

                            And when you are done with 13 years in a row on school, you get to carry a road sign around... (My daughter almost smack in the middle there, with a grey sweater and a horsetail in her hear ;-)
