        I have been busy lately, but with a World Championship in town, had to do some photographing.

        Ladies started in the first part:




        The track passes "Gamle Bybro" in both directions:

          Excellent reporting Nichu. There always seems to be something going on in town. I saw there were going to be Olavsfestdagene taking place after I headed south, but I didn’t know about this orienteering.

            Great to see such reports, thanks!!
            And as usual, Jan-Olav...., great images from (and of) the ferries!!
            Of course I enjoyed the sunset ones, but I must say that this time I specially liked the ones where we could see a time laps sort of blur in the fjord while the ferry was crystal clear

              Thanks, Nichu!!! Looks like the Orienteering was fun (to watch, at least!!)

              There seems to be something interesting going on all the TIME in Trondheim.......

                  Cannot compete with J-O's artwork, but will say thank you for the nice comments on my WOC2010 report.

                    . . . but you got there with his sports-coverage skills Nichu –look you’re in the middle of the road and she’s coming towards you, feet caught off the ground even – great photo.
                    This reference to J-O is due to remembering some cycle race photos of his from a similar in-front angle, and I said how difficult I’d found it to take such views of the much slower moving 17th May procession! – so you are already a step higher than me in speed Nichu!

                      Moving house – the sequel!

                      Nichu’s posts about moving houses during tunnel construction works really caught my imagination.

                      So visiting Trondheim and realising my hotel was close to the area – (I’d even spotted some cranes from my hotel room window!) – I set off on an evening walk to investigate. Perhaps I would be able to find the place where the houses were being kept. Although I had not thought to print out the annotated view, (and that hadn’t shown the place which was eventually used in any case), I was sure my memory of Nichu’s photos and my instincts would get me there, and indeed that was what happened.

                      Finding the works area was easy, and I then had to take a detour to reach the side further from the main road, where a corner shop was happily able to keep open for business despite the disruption.

                        Then came the instincts bit, look, those railings in the distance look distinctly promising.

                          Eureka! I found the houses!

                              The magnitude of the moving houses endeavour really got to me when I started looking at the details. . .



                              . . . that nice neat looking blue front door




                              . . . a satellite dish, doubtless pointing in the wrong direction by now, its connections dangling to nowhere.
