    And finally today, I promise (I think), here are some not so successful "tiny planet" images from Trondheim.

    I struggle to get them super sharp like in advertisements, but then again, they are stretched a LOT as well.....

    More practice perhaps?

      Thank you, Lady C.

      I guess it is an added bonus of the stretching effects (stretch marks)...

    I have lived in this city for some years, but I really don't know (nor remember) the name of this tiny square pressed between KJØPMANNSGATA 38 and 40. It's sitting next to Cicignons Plass, but I think this fountain is sitting in a differently named open space.

    What I do know is that there has been a struggle whether to tear down Kjøpmannsgata 38 or not (the yellow building to the left). Personally, I hope they keep it, because I feel the city has enough big office buildings in the downtown area and because i think it would not look good in such a historic street..

    Additionally, the future plans of Kjøpmannsgata (literally meaning the "trader-men's street), is now under consideration and a tender has been announced to international architect companies to reinvigorate the whole street.

      New attraction in Trondheim, if you can call a cafe an attraction..(?)... the former ammunition storage from WW2 near Østmarkneset lighthouse, Lade has been converted to a cafe/restaurant, open only at summer season: the name of the place is LADEKAIA:

          There's some atmosphere there, and the view seems to be lovely too!

          My "When in Trondheim To-see-List" is becoming oh so long!

        Trondheim like you haven't seen the town before (I hope).... these images are best viewed in full scale, but they would be far too big for the forum then:

            Darn, I do love to see Trondheim like this... I would love to have these blown up really large, and painted a large wall with the images.... do you have a wall?

                    Tommi: Here's an answer to that tube on shore there ;-) http://www.universitetsavisa.no/stud...ticle37668.ece
                    The oil rig on shore is a training center for offshore workers

                    Jan-Olav: Thanks for all these pictures from one of my favourite cities, and yes, I always enjoy airporty images :-)

                      I believe that "on-shore oil rig" is the old living quarter block from Ekkofisk, replaced in the early 1980s to improve the standard.

                      What kind of training did they do here? I can see an empty davit for FRC and a Helideck, but little else.

                    Thanks all of you for your feedback.

                    That oil rig used to be a maritime safety training center once upon a time, but the building has been left unused and abandoned for the last decade now.

                    It was listed at the Norwegian second hand website finn.no many years ago, for the purchase price of just 1 NOK, buyer must remove the buidling themselves.

                    As far as I remember, there was a company at Fosen which was thinking about putting it on a barge and sail it to Fosen and convert it into a hotel.

                    I don't think the plans materialised.

                    For the white tube Tommi was asking about, it's an artwork which originally was placed in the park besides Our Lady's Church. Many years ago, it was removed and placed in the port for taggers to do their work (not intentionally off course, but if you leave something white and shiny in an unguarded place, it'll happen).

                      Thank you all for the explanation.
                      The story of the tube seems quite interesting indeed.

                    James Bond? Has he ever been to Trondheim?

                    hahahahahaha.... are you sure it wasn't Tower of London?

                    I miss the time when the TYHOLT TOWER had a white table cloth restaurant and great wines.... these days, the tower is occupied by a chain restaurant called EGON.

                    Their food does not match the view from the tower... if only we could get back the great food served before.

                      Some additional prt scenes as seen through a super telezoom... these days, news are breaking about a major development in the port.

                      The empty lot next to ROCKHEIM will be filled in, and a building TALLER than Rockheim will be erected and occupied by Pricewaterhouse Coopers.
