Tom Ward is a young Australian street musician (with some TV appearances on his CV, too). I heard him playing on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh during The Fringe Festival. The guitar he used didn’t look like much, but the sound was great – he knew how to play classical guitar. So I bought his CD. Here he is on You Tube.

Have a nice Week-End!



As any visitors can see for themselves, I’m still experimenting with WordPress. I find that the approach is quite different from that of Blogger, and maybe not as intuitive. But at least they don’t temper with the photos!

I have put in a photo shot this summer on one of the few days when the sun didn’t shine. I found this abandoned  concrete shed which nature seems to be slowly taking over.

A New Sheet and a Sharp Pencil


I have been using Blogger as host for my blog Visual Norway since 2006. It has been an interesting experience, but also one that has added some grey hairs to the very many I already have. Blogger is very flexible when it comes to design, but it also likes to decide many things for you which you rather would decide for yourself. For instance, they “auto-enhance” and change the photos you upload whether you like it or not. And I don’t. The feature can’t be turned off unless you join their less than successful Facebook-clone called Google+. Which I have no intention of doing.

So here I am on WordPress. With a new and sharp pencil and a blank sheet ready to go. The new blog is obviously not a finished product, and I have a steep learning curve ahead of me, so wish me luck 🙂

Have a nice week!
