December has been wet, windy and mild in these parts so far. That means no snow and some rather special lighting conditions – mostly depending on lights from all sorts of artificial sources.
But at least this one was shot when there was a bit of afternoon light left.
Christmas decorations have been put up, but somehow I find the lit windows and the reflections on the wet cobblestones more attractive.
BTW – the white building on top of the street is called “Fløibanen” – a funicular going to the top of one of the mountains surrounding Bergen. It was opened in 1918
Bergen is a coastal city, so even a pirate comes visiting his colleague “The Flying Dutchman”.
And windows shopping is still popular.
“Marken” is an old pedestrian-only street that takes on a special glow when the sodium lamps are lit at night and the cobblestones are wet.
I don’t know what this is – maybe a belated Halloween celebration?
Have a nice week-end!
