Also in Vaterland

Just had to add this note to my previous post about what I also found on this little walk of mine in Vaterland, Fredrikstad. Close to that little brick kiosk there was an old warehouse with lot of old (boat)machine parts & details outside. Machinery album

Walking in Vaterland, Fredrikstad

I’m not build for long walks these days, therefore my close and well known areas will have to do.. and wouldn’t you know! -that not long ago I discovered this small place by the Glomma river; Vaterland -the old part of the city’s east side. I have seen it from the west side but never […]

A little Øra visit

Øra industrial area in Fredrikstad, just a couple of miles from where I live, is visited from time to time. Not only is it a fairly big area but I often find new plants or part of such -almost every time I go there.. Or I hope to find details that I have not noticed […]


From time to time I’m having a drive in the beautiful landscape of Torsnes, Østfold. Lucky me to have some of my family there! ) And each time I try to use my eyes good to discover new landscape views that is worth bringing back with me.. Late in October this year I saw this […]

Buildings in Fredrikstad

In the city where I was born I actually still discover now and then interesting buildings and facades that I earlier have just passed by.. Like the other day when I suddenly saw these fascinating, older architecture as I parked my car! Very pleasing! 🙂 Visit my album Facades & buildings # 2 A nice little […]

Abandoned corner

Sometimes when out driving and have some time on my hands and fancy a little detour.. I try some ‘hidden’ narrow roads that I actually can’t remember noticing before -though even they are not far from where I live.. This is an example -a lovely old decay -in the Rolvsøy area between Greåker and Fredrikstad. My […]


This is from my leisure place at Hvaler –and actually 0,5 sec. after I took this -heaven exploded in a big bang and a lightning showed just where you see this one.. Of course I’m never so lucky that I catch such things for real -but already there and then I decided to put one […]

Topo or not topo

Today’s post is one of those I find hard to put in a category.. and when I wonder if the term ‘topo’ is the right one -the confusion is usually biggest ) .. I think it’s a man made landscape but it’s also full of those lovely eye-catching elements that have none or a lot […]

What used to be on the roads

-you now often find along the roads.. And do I feel lucky when I see some on my drives! These I saw on the trip up to Årnes & Sørumsand in september -and to my passengers confusion I stepped on the brakes and run out to bring them with me 🙂 Vehicles and trailers

Bridge on the rocks

Also today I found a photo that’s been hiding from me since last year.. -ok, I forgot it ) -but it does deserve a place in my album: Misc. heavy constructions ..I think.. It’s in Sarpsborg where I live and from a little walk I did under the highway there then.. You will find more […]
