Bergen in November is not rain only – sometimes it stops for a few minutes and the sun might even pop out and give a certain light that I find very attractive. If you wonder about the old, white building to the right, it is called “Muren” and dates back to 1562.
Sunlight reflecting on wet cobblestones holds a certain magic to me. Here from “Strandkaien” (actually a quay). All the buildings on the right date from the 1920 – 1930 when they were rebuilt after a large fire in 1916
When I turn around 180 degrees I have view of how the old street was. All of buildings on the left hand side date from before the fire. And it may be fitting that the bicycle advertises for an antique shop.
Just across “Vågen” lies “Bryggen” glowing in whatever sunlight is around. The present houses were built after a large fire in 1702, and Bryggen is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Have a nice week-end! 🙂
