      WOW.What a nice walk. It worth to get up early.

    Thank you all very much Clipper, Tommi, Seagull, Ralf and yvneac!

    Yes, this drone is a wonderful piece of engineering. I find it hard to believe the quality of such a tiny camera with such a tiny sensor.

    Now, with rumours of an imminent version 2 of my drone, I hope and pray for a 20 Mp camera and an 1" sensor. That would be taking the pictures up a notch again.

        Comment on Blog update of 2018-Mar-16: Kristiansten Festning

        Pakarang - I started to type a draft reply to this blog update before I realised there wasn't a link encouraging a comment or response, but, having started, I hope the following is worth posting here in your Trondheim thread.

        The moment I saw your photos of the sculptures in the blog I remembered I'd seen something like that girl before, and was sure I'd made a "looks interesting" note somewhere. I couldn't immediately find it though. One of the reasons why I can seem so slow is because I'm incapable of just going on to the next thing if something is still niggling me. (Not always a bad thing - I've succeeded in so much by not letting anyone educate my supposed 'faults' out of me!).
        So, persevering, it turned out that I'd filed it under Oslo and not Trondheim, the picture I'd seen having featured in an exhibition of the work of a British sculptor, Laura Ford, at Oslo's Akershus. Perhaps it is a travelling exhibition, or one split between similar venues simultaneously? Note the fortress connection.

        As a 'futility of war' statement the sculpture is unusual to say the least, and I like any kind of art that is ambiguous, or thought-provokingly open to interpretation, personal to each individual onlooker.
        She seems real, yet to me there is something unsettlingly 'Alice in Wonderland' about her. Is she really grief-stricken, helpless and frightened, or is it just a bizarre game of hide and seek? Perhaps she's simply 'playing up' and attention seeking. Surely not a set up to rob a sympathetic passer-by ...or...

        Were she real you might well have hesitated, then gone back to your car first to get a warm blanket you had there, returned to find the girl gone, started to doubt your own senses, begin to believe in ghosts. There was something a bit spooky and scarey about her, wasn't there?

        My favourite sculpture is the birdman. Naturally one thinks of the Icarus legend. But of course it is impossible for me not to have a personal response! Even if her wings work, this lady-c-gull is unlikely to make stunning images like pakarang's drone. Her eyes seem unseeing, covered with feathers like the girl's with her hair.
        And then there are the shoes. Or are the bird's not velcro-fastening shoes but shackles, preventing flight and total escape from the fortress?
        Although the girl's are a lighter colour, my shoes do seem to resemble those in the sculptures!





        My other shoes are hiking boots, as are those of the original wooden seagull of my avatar in Helsinki.
        So I should maybe plan a very personal sculpture tour of Helsinki and Trondheim this summer!

          I think I read somewhere that this was indeed a "travelling display"... and the it was limited in time. It had something to do with the beautification of Norwegian fortifications making them appeal to a wider crowd.

          I liked the girl in the doorway: I was actually startled when I saw here because I hadn't notice it going the other way. It was almost like there she was, while a moment ago, she wasn't.

            Comment on YouTube video of 2018-April-19: I heart Trondheim

            Dear Captain, your 'Questions' this time first asked for my favourite spot in Trondheim. That's not easy to decide, but I don't think I have ever been in the city without at some point finding myself at Ravnkloa and pausing a while at the steps next to the statue "Den Siste Viking".

            But then I also have a favourite seat at Ila from which I look across to Munkholmen, a favourite rock to sit on at Hansbakkfjæra, and a favourite C-gull’s eye view over the city from Kristiansten Fortress!

            Another question asks what is my favourite memory of Trondheim..
            That must surely be the 24th July 2010 which is crammed with memories, from a 'fjord cruise' on Fosen and a total exploration of Ranheim to a spectacular helicopter trip! I somehow squeezed so much into that single day that it seems to defy notions of time.

            June 2013 when Serenissima returned to Trondheim has such special memories too.

              Yeah! I agree on the Ravnkloa area!

              But, I feel the area has lost it's charm the last decade(s). In the past, this was a really busy area selling a lot of fish and seafood - I remember Saturdays inside the old Ravnkloa building: it was very often jam-packed with people looking for something from the sea. Today, the prices are so inflated that there are rarely people going there. Also, I think it's now illegal to sit on the dockside eating fresh shrimps.

              Ahhhh.... the good old "Fosen"... and now, I'm about to relinquish my command on board the K too. Time flies.

                Here is a brain-exercise for all of you that THINKS you got Trondheim well covered... I thought I knew the location of all statues, having walked and biked so much in this city, but this was actually harder than I thought.

                Use the CMD and your mouse to zoom in and place the status where you THINK they are located. This wasn't as easy as I thought!

                  I only knew Trondheim mostly from the sea side, and it was from the years I worked onboard hurtigruten.

                  But anyway, I tried the test and of course got a miserable result.
                  But funny anyway.

                        Nice images Sterkoder - certainly hope you enjoyed your stay in Trondheim!

                        The clouds in the Munkholmen shot really came out well in B&W.

                        I heard about the car-show yesterday afternoon, a little after they had broken up and returned home.

                          I traveled with a friend who was on duty as guard on board the floating oil storage vessel NJORD BRAVO moored in Kristiansund, so he had to be back at a certain time in the evening. If not I might have contacted you (don't know your working schedule though.
                          We were at the American Car Clubs arrangement for just under an hour (we were told there would be old military vehicles there, but it was not), so we went down to Egon for a snack (pizza buffet, you know ;-) ) and then we drove over to Norsk Fotofagskole at Ila, just to see where the school was (as my daughter is starting her 2 year photographer education there this fall) Note: One happy father, on search for a place for her to live with at least her own bathroom. Anyone?

                        This past week-end, the students who are finished with their two years at Norsk Fotofagskole had their farewell-party and exhibition.
                        Each of the 38 students also placed their portfolio on tables for us visitors to look through.
                        My daughter will start her two years education to become a professional photographer this fall, and as we had to go to Trondheim to sign a contract for her new appartement, we made a week-end out of it as a family, booked a room at the Clarion Hotel & Congress Trondheim at Brattøra, and "did" Trondheim. I didn't bring the Pentax all the time, but here are a few pictures from this beautiful city June 9th 2018.

                            On the second floor, we looked through almost all of the 38 portfolios. What an inspiring place to be, what energy boost it was to walk in that building with all the creative energy around. (My daughter is to the far right)
