    Oh, yes...., he uses b/w and old fashion film in his old Hasselblad. Well, he most surely got other cameras, but I know he's not a digitalized tecno freak. Far from it.
    Wish I could find a "theme" some day...., a series of photography I just had to take, artisticly. Sometimes I feel like I want "a purpose" with my photography.
    I was so happy to see that odd looking ferry in harbour today. Made me take pictures of something else besides offshore vessels.
    Soon, I wouldn't know which angle to use on those vessels anymore, and I guess I must have pictured them all.
    Enough OT for one day.

      Shush Sterkoder…speak quietly or our Captain will hear and order you to start a 366!!!!!!!

      But yes, I do understand what you’re saying and I wish I could help come up with a theme for you.

      I suppose there are those kind of themes in which one is “collecting” a series of something, and apart from ships that might be some aspect of the surroundings or local history, daily life, roads, paths and walks, trees, building details, things like we have in the “abandoned” threads, or aspects of materials like wood or iron (I know you are attracted to rusty objects). All photographed in an artistic way however.
      Or there are those kind of themes that come more from the artistic photography itself, like pakarang’s series dominated by a specific colour…I don’t suppose he consciously decided to start doing that, it just kind of emerged and I recognised it as a part of his creative “style” –I spend hours looking at his photographs, picking out examples and arranging them in an imaginary exhibition or series. (see paks...no blush or embarrassed smiley required!)

      ADDED AS EDIT:_ Eeekkk…editing in the following so as not to seem utterly OT with another post!!!

      I did some googling…try “themes, series photography”… and looked at results like this and this and (try it yourself) many many more comments and questions, often in the context of people teaching or taking a photography course involving a series of photos as exercises or assignments. I suppose pakarang tries to similarly encourage us with the photo competition topics.
      Anyway, maybe something in all this will strike a chord with you.

        Thanks, Cecilia...., also for those 'this' and 'this' links!

        I would one day like to take an artistic photograph, like based on a thought in my head, an idea put into a picture.
        I mean, what Morten Krogvold do when he bring a white horse inside, place it in a door opening between rooms and take a picture of this with the sunlight coming into the room through a window. He calls it Time.
        I know this image is not made in a hurry, like a single click, rather as a result of something he has had in his head for years. It's art.
        When I take pictures of ships, houses, aircraft and such..., the camera is my limitation, as if there has been 20 people with cameras, they could all have taken the same pictures.
        I belive that's the reason I might have gotten more and more interested in taking detail shots and close-ups of rusty stuff, old houses and such over the past years, to be able to get a personal touch to the pictures.
        Oh, there we go OT again.

        EDIT:
        Shame on me! It just dawned on me that my seasonal and detail shots from Viken farm is just what I mean when it comes to 'from idea to project done'

            Nice and moody pictures Sterkoder!

            It would be interesting to know why all these vessels were calling Kristiansund.
            Bad weather? Holidays?

              Oh, this is quite usual.
              On any day we have any number between 10-20 offshore vessels in.
              The really unusual thing is if there are 5 or fewer.
              One day before christmas last year we had to following days with none calling Vestbase with their 9+ docks. Everybody talked about the emptyness.

              The reason for calling Kristiansund is of course the largest offshore supply and support base of the country, Vestbase.
              They also use our city for crew change, maintenance, provisions, fuel, water and such.
              If there also are a huge storm, large vawes and other form of really bad weather present in the ocean, our quays are packed, and then with ships moored outside of each other.

                  For now I do not know how to attach the photos because looks like the links don't work if I try to use the sistem's URL attach'.

                  I have more pictures with other ships but I will put them later. Sorry if this is publicity to the sharing pictures website, and if it's so pls delete this post until I figure how to correct the mistake.

                  Thanks also for the wellcoming.

                      Ahhhh...., finally!!!
                      I've been hunting this vessel since last year when she began sailing in and out from Kristiansund Base (at Averøy).
                      She was seldom in town and only at Vestbase when needed for refill of any fluid, be it fuel, water or whatever....
                      Why I've been after this one...? Oh, well...., special design, maybe...

                      Here's "Stril Orion"

                          1067/4 far from nice

                            #1067 & #1068 - Stril Orion - What an impressive vessel!

                            I do like the array of deckhead lights in the Ops Room, Big S. There are other photos of this ship on the internet but none with this feature. You caught her at the right time of day and at the right elevation.

                              Wow Sterkoder, how fascinating. If I had come across other photos of Stril Orion before they hadn’t made an impression on me as I don’t remember, but in your sequence of photos you show us all aspects from your spotterplace viewpoints. That is a most impressive “pakarang view”, but while impressed in one way by the “different” design of this vessel, I am also a bit in sympathy with janihudi’s reservations…it’s in #1067/3 when I hesitate over this huge chunk of ship, oh and thanks for the viewpoint in the first of that post where the height is clearly demonstrated against the buildings.

                              Seems real smart inside, and you practically got interior views there at those clever angles Clipper already alluded to! Yes she is very impressive vessel…but I just need to get used to her profile

                                Wondered what the General Arrangement for an AHTS might be and found this (for Hadi XII).

                                Does anyone know, is the arrangement typical?
