      Very nice captions Sterkoder. I love all the details that the "hard" sunlight brings to these pictures.

        Thank you, guys

        Usually people take pictures as they walk up and down the sidewalk in Langveien. Today I took a walk on the west side of the church. (And don't ask me about that pink vertical stripe. Know nothing about it)

            Loved the light in last image of post 1563 - it has a wonderful charm to it.

            Great seeing that you are trying to look at the "same things" from a new perspective. I know it's not easy, but your images proves that it's possible.

              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:

              From left to right: TRANSFIGHTER on her way to Skogn, OCEAN ART and NORTH POMOR

              Out on the ocean he sail, hoping for a good catch

              Sea houses for the local fishermen and boat owners. TRANSFIGHTER on the horizon
              SSL25030 by Svein Ludvigsen, on Flickr

              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 new city room, the Town Hall square

              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
                SSL25014 by Svein Ludvigsen, on Flickr

                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!

                        Comment


                          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 :-)
