          Seems like I've missed some posts here:

          #1051: Ilsvikøra looks like someone built a village inside a town. Well, quite nice concept, even if it feels a bit 'forced'.
          #1058: I live that kind of everyday realistic pictures, a lot of weather is present.
          #1062: That feeling about not being able to find new ideas, and then kind of succeeding with it anyhow.
          #1063/1064/1065: well the wood is pretty, but the light - so honest, vibrant and present.
          #1067: not too bad for being backlit images, but there's a bit too much whiteouts
          #1068: that's pretty calm weather, niiice reflections!

            Looking at Ranheim church, I got a smile on my face, thinking back...
            Once, as a photography project, I thought about taking my car to drive around in Norway and take pictures of every church in the country. Purhaps make a picture book with a few essential info facts about the churches afterwards, to partially finance some of my expences.

            Of course, a guy with full time work could not do that, not even in a holiday or two, so the idea flew away...

            Then, a few years back, when I sat on a Friday night looking at the popular NRK programme 'Norge Rundt'..., there suddenly came an older guy and his wife, both pensioners.
            He also had an idea to do this photography tour to picture alle and every one of Norways churches.
            NRK made a short video about him as he took pictures of the last church. Don't remember how long a time he had used..., but just imagine how many places he had been.
            I mean, it's a church in every city, town, small place and everywhere...

            Anyway, this had nothing to do with Trondheim...., so please carry on good people :-)
            (Just came to think about it when I saw Ranheim church).

              Comment




                The halo is borrowed out to Beyonce for her concert tour....

                That would be a couple of thousand churches I would suppose, Sterkoder? With the fuel prices here in Norway, that would be truly a costly project. But it would be an amazing coffee table book though!

                Yes, I know the problem of the strong light into the lens on post 1067. It's all done with a GoPro camera, so the editing is quite limited. If I was ever going to buy a bigger "drone", I would have one that can carry a full sized DSLR or HD camera with higher quality. But, that would be cost prohibitive, and I would be terrified of possible crashes which could get really costly really fast.

                Ilsvikøra is actually the old city kept, and while the surrounding buildings are modern, the charm of the small quarter is evident. I hope and pray they will keep this place for many more years. This is historical part of the city and still very much alive as people's home.

                Thank you very much for the comments all three, and for dropping by!

                    Didn't you hear the rumor that he was planning to take a bicycle instead of a car?

                      Yeah, right....., what a sight would that be :-) :-D
                      At this time I drive a diesel car, so the fuel price is anywhere from NOK 10,90 to 13,50.

                      Anyway, what I wanted to tell you is that Den Norske Kirke has a total of 1.625 churches (I did some research you know ;-) )

                        I'm so thrilled that winter is now over.... a very busy winter filled with LOTS of work, and extra work, a second job, tending to my own business, taking care of my father, moving and a lot of improvement fitness-wise. I can't believe how I ave managed to put all the things I have done into action.

                              I like your new additions a lot. Specially those from your office and the view of the sea of tranquility and a lovely sunrise. You must really have the opportunity to let your thoughts run a little when docked and filling up the deck on such mornings. Thanks:-)
