    This has got me thinking – and veering OT in this thread – is there actually such a thing as Fjord1 souvenirs? That’s probably not something a regular commuter would want, but it would be nice for the ferry enthusiasts and tourists to have a pin or a postcard to purchase with their pølser and sveler. And for the kids (of all ages! ), fridge magnets of ferry and Captain!!!

      Nope, there are no souvernirs on board any of our ferries.... but you could always suggest them make one.

                I always thought we needed to spend £200-300 on a macro lense to do proper macro photography. That was until Mike Browne and www.photographycourses.biz came into my life :-)

                We could do smashing macro images after spending just £5, just watch this 10 minutes video from Mike:

                    Not sure if this is the correct category, but never mind... here is a "miniature" or shall we say a detail from the blossoming of "life":

                      Bad weather for weeks outside, must find something to photograph inside.
                      Since I don't have a full-frame macro lense to use on my K-1 II, I put batteries in my very first beginners Pentax, the K-x, put a Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro lense on it and mounted it on my tri-pod.
                      Then, find something to take pictures of...

                      An old coin, a 10-øre from 1972 when our King was Kong Olav V. 10 øre is 1/10 of a Norwegian krone, but it has been withdrawn from use for decades now.

                      Then I found a blue bulb pen. The depth of field was no thicker than a cigarette paper, so this one was kind of difficult to get in focus

                      Finally, a light bulb

                        Sorry, my mistake about the m at the coin.
                        Multitasking at the moment makes mistakes.
                        ( also big tumbs on small key's at a smarthphone don't help either)
                        But now you explained it to me, i can understand it what it means.
                        4 of 5 images you can reconaise the object, the pen you won't reconaise at.first sight it is a pen.
                        The deffinition of macro is propably else, but i see it when you see things on a image which you can't see in real live. Meaning you are sucked in to the object.

                      You reconise a good photographer when he sees a image in every ordinairy ( if i use that word well in this sentense) object.
                      i specialy like the image of the bulb pen.
                      when it comes to macro, this is what i called macro.
                      while the other 3 images are more close ups. ( no offence)

                      about thw coin , i presume that you can see that it's a coin of Kong Olav era of the MO or OM sign.
                      but.where do the stands for? O for Olav but M?
                      ( we have here the silhouette of our former/present Queens and King ,aswel in the guilder as euro era)
                      best regards Thijs

                        Thanks for comments :-)

                        I guess you are correct, it's only the bulb pen that is truly a macro image. But anyway, they were all shot with the macro lense, so...

                        As for the coin, it's only a cm in diameter, and usually wee also have the engraved head of our King on one side, but our smaller value coins have always had insekts or animals on them.

                        It's not OM but OV. O for Olav, our former Kings name and V as in roman number 5, Olav the 5th.
                        The monogram of our King today is HV, as in Harald the 5th, or Harald V, if you will.
                    Working...
