      Nice shots!

      Glad you re-uploaded these to flickr. I don't know if that is something I can spend time on... I have literally thousands of images that now really soon will all be replaced with that ugly ransom note from Photobucket.

        These are just some weeks old. I will not reload my lost pictures to flickr, as I'm 54 years old now and can't afford to use time on that. Glad you liked them :-)

      A few pictures of my Volvo field wagon shot with my iPhone yesterday afternoon in my neighborhood

        Thank you, Tommi.
        They are all iPhone-pictures and all put through certain effects. But the spot was perfect, kind of a tree tunnel giving very nice and soft light.

      Picture number 2 especially appeals to my senses and my mind... very well captured and perfectly (suitably) edited!.

        I'm not too eager to edit my pictures much when I use my Pentax, but when I use iPhone..., oh, that's a hole new ballgame.
        Picture #2 is cropped just a little bit, and I've used some effects; HDR (25%, belive it or not), Vintage, soft-focus and just a tiny bit of vignett (barely seen).
        If I'd thought things through before I took the picture, I would've changed my number plate to the original yellowy military one, 11324.
        (That's the original military registration it got 15. July 1963 after rolling off the production line in June 1963).
        Then it would most certainly look like a vintage photo from the days it was operative.

      Drove my Volvo Felt to the gravel pit north of the airport tonight. Only brought my iPhone, so here are three pictures from the mobile camera.

            Very nicely done, Sterkoder - the reflection of the water makes your car look double. Nice effect indeed.

              Out of the garage, ready for a new season. New motor for the front heater, new dampers on the front axle, greased up and oiled, coolant topped and fuel filled

                  Oh, ok. I wonder; is it ok for a Norwegian military vehicle to drive deep into another country, even if it is a veteran one and not operative in any way with regard to its original purpose? The most comfortable speed is 63 kilometers pr. hour.
                  Anyway, all of my spare time outside the family holiday is already planned and dated, I will tell you all later ;-)

                  Good question,
                  actually, export control topics is one of my professional expertise areas. I would say that as long as it is de-militirized and don't contain any equipment that is "specially built for warfare" (like a bracket for a rocket launcher), it should be perfectly fine.
                  63 km's? That's only 12,5 hours. I remember when I was a kid and dad drove us to Finland for vacation - it took at least 14 hours in an ordinary car... :-)

                  12,5 hours driving. Then there are all the stops, when the driver need to and when the car say so.
                  I know the way as far as Rättvik, as I've been in Orsa/Mora several times, but going all the way in a 1963 Volvo Valp? Mmmmm, don't know about that :-)

                Season opening 2019.
                The weather was bad, but we had a record of 10 participating vehicles, tent, military kitchen, grills, military bike and wartime blocking ballon.
                It rained so heavily that day (1st May) that I didn't dare use my Pentax. The following are taken with my iPhone 6S camera.

                  We're usually 7 vehicles when we meet, don't know why. This time we were 10.

                  As we were gathered there, a Danish trailer truck hit the brakes out on the main road, causing some panic in the cars that followed. The driver switched on his emergency lights and backed into a nearby bus stop. He had spotted us in the sideview and also that we had a Ford MUTT there. He owned one himself in Denmark, and the funny thing was, our local MUTT here was purchased from Denmark. Just a little story to end this post :-)

                    Despite the wet conditions, it does look like you all had a great day anyhow. There is certainly a grate camaraderie amongst the entire group.

                      Time for coffee and vaffels at the Kaffebrenneriet Patrick Volkmar in vågen here in Kristiansund.
                      It's the most cozy and nice café in the city, but as an example, no tourists from the hurtigrute can ever make it here because there are simply not enough time.
                      Anyway, if you want to know more, use Google or Facebook.

                      We met at Shell gas-station to drive to the café together

                      My Volvo from 1963 first, then a model 1968 Volvo, a model 1945 Willys JEEP and last a Dodge from 1944

                      Vie from our table towards the counter in the café. They also sell knitted clothes, and roll upon roll of yarn and books, mugs, sweets and what not.
                      The main item for sale is the Varde Coffee, made on an old coffeemaker

                      It was his birthday, so he sponsored a piece of apple cake on us (or apple pie, as you most likely call it).
