Still Testing – in Oslo

RH 2017-4050259.jpg

Once or twice a year I have to go to a hospital in Oslo (the Norwegian capital) for a medical follow-up for a few days. And this time I brought my new Olympus along. Here I have tried to catch the evening atmosphere outside the hospital.

And a bit more atmosphere at the local tram station.

A bicycle is always an interesting object for a photographer. I found this one basking in reflected light on the side of a fast food restaurant near the hospital.

And of course also a photo of the inside of the hospital – a hospital with a somewhat unusual internal architectural layout.

And the follow-up? It went very well. And so did the camera do.

Bergen Harbour by Night

I appreciate the value of tripods, I just don’t like to drag my (at least) 2.5 kg one around too much. Also, I find that some of the immediacy and spontaneity of many photos disappear, if that is what one looks for. So the other night I had a small tour around Bergen harbour (“VĂ¥gen” in Norwegian”) to see what I could do with the equipment I had and the support I could find.

Kveld ved VĂ¥gen-26412

Across the water towards “Bryggen” (“The Wharf” – on UNESCO’s World Heritage List). The blue light is from a passing ambulance.

Kveld ved VĂ¥gen-26451

Towards “Torget” (“The Market”). The lights at the top right and left are from the tops of two of the seven mountains surrounding the central part of Bergen.

Kveld ved VĂ¥gen-26525

Strange bedfellows – modern oil-related ships and a medieval fortress (“Bergenhus”)

Kveld ved VĂ¥gen-26463

A couple of girls waiting for one of the coastal catamarans.

If you get hungry, thirsty or want a party – that can be arranged, too.

Kveld ved VĂ¥gen-26482

Or you can find a quiet little nook where you can study the reflection of a quayside shopping mall and its Christmas decoration.

I admit that a tripod would have been better, but my shoulder would have been sorer …
