    My better half took this picture of me and our wondering dog Camilla, when I shot #306/7 :-)

    Interesting and great new addition to your already vast collection.

    I wonder, my curiosity draws my attention towards the insides of those old farm houses in post 306....

    I hope there is any tiny little detail left around Bjerkestrand / Kristiansund i am able to explore for myself! Stay tuned maybe there will be a surprising new view. Veery difficult task, however.

    Yeah, now this reminds me a lot of our old family photo albums from the 40-50-60's in some way. Nordic houses and agricultural views in a mix of degradation. Pretty nostalgic actually!

    I guess this boat has done its work


    Fantastic area down here by this farm.


    Decorative stones by the sea


    Guess it will be a boat moored here in the summer months


    Some nice colours on this farms barn




    We usually buy Primula flowers at the florist, but here they grow in nature :-)


    Final picture from my camera tonight, a nice little house, on the countryside. The only thing is, I stand on the main road around the island Frei, only 3 meters from the wall...

    From this farm, there are a certain view




    On our way down to the old Viken farm, a horse


    The view from old Viken farm


    Over a small hill beyond Viken farm


    On that farm is an old carpentry


    And of course a farm mill


    Above the farm, someone I know is building a new house. Not exactly in conformity with nature and terrain...

    While in the area, there was a few pictures shot. After this years Nordic Light festival, and a meeting with the vietnameese photographer Mai Loc, I was inspired to try more b&w


    With a mix of colours, of course




    Walking up from the seaside, we passed the old Atlas owned by the son of the old farmers


    And we walked our way over to Viken farm. This has not had the taste of salt water for decades


    There are five old farms on a row here, only one operational. This is the barn to one of the not operational farms


    But it is still maintained by the late owners relatives


    They also have a restored farm saw here

    Another week, another walk with my Pentax. Starting in the neighbourhood of my home, down by the sea


    The main farm house, eaten away by time...


    You can have it in colour, if you want to...






    On our way to the sea, we passed these trees


    And finally, by the sea, this is the view

    Thanks, my friend :-)
    Should have been four (perhaps) and most certainly wet. Don't know why, but that's the image I have in my head :-)

    Thumbs up on the three stacked rocks! That would be an awesome center piece in a stairwell!

    I've taken so many pictures down here of the view and all, so I thought I'd rather experiment a little now..., just like photographer Mike Browne urges us to do in all his videos at www.photographycourses.biz

    The stones should be wet, but I did not want to make patterns on the dry wooden table just this time


    Then I set my camera to shoot continuous shots, and told my daughter to throw stones in the water. Just for the pure pleasure of it... :-D




    And one last one in b/w


    Many people enjoyed themselves outdoors this Sunday, and the family in the picture (barely visible in a distance) there had fired up one of the stationary grills and all. What a day :-)


    Well, thanks for watching folks! :-)

    We had beautiful weather here Sunday, and we desided to walk down to Viken farm. My daughter and I brought our cameras..., just in case (haha)

    The first image was a sign of spring :-)


    A sight you've seen before..., Viken farm to the left and the snowy mountains of island Tustna in a distance


    On a table outside the farmhouse..., a rusty doorlock and handles


    After a while, we came down to the boathouse


    And our dog, Camilla, found a piece of wood to shew on :-)


    It's rather peaceful to sit and just look out on the fjord, waiting for summer and warmer days

    Love the top part of that house: some sort of a winter garden. Must be a great place to watch the weather pass by.

    Anyway..., near Frei church, behind that brown house in #292/5, is a most beautiful house or should I say houses.
    There's the summer house of the richest man in Norway in the mid- to late 1800s, a Kristiansund man called Nicholay Knudtzon. The Government once came to him to ask him if he could lend them money. That's how rich he was, by those days standards.

    I went out with my Pentax to capture his now restored buildings, used as a place for representation, lectures, exhibitions and such, owned by our local bank.

    Here we go (Yes, I know about the highlight):











    The interior of the entire main building, is restored as if Mr. Knudtzon just left the house for a few minutes. I mean, the beds are done, pictures on the wall and everything :-)




    In the old days the main entrance was to the south, btween two lion sculptures. Now, cars are driveing in through a east gate. The text beneath the lion say J. C. Bolinder Stockholm
