Collection: Abandoned hospital Fredrikstad

The old hospital ‘Sentralsykehuset Østfold’ have moved to Kalnes outside Sarpsborg. And the old hospital in Fredrikstad is abandoned and in an early decay. One fine grey day in Feb. 2019 I took a walk around the area and did some photos -while it’s still in this exciting stage! 🙂   Though the shots can […]

A misty day around the Kråkerøy bridge – Fredrikstad

On February 27 I went for a small walk in the mist -close to where I live in Fredrikstad actually -in the area around the bride over to Kråkerøy. We locals call this bridge ‘Kråkerøybrua’ -and is a Bascule bridge. The operating hut you see is now empty though.. This bridge and one more in […]

By the railway station; Fredrikstad

After reading in the local newspaper about a not very good looking apartment block in Fredrikstad -I went there to have a look. Quite amazing actually as it does seems partly abandoned and ‘decorated’. Not very well maintained either to put it mildly. Seems to be some sort of problem house for the local council as […]

Isegran February 2018

Isegran is a small ‘corner’ by the Glomma river -in the middle of Fredrikstad city, Norway. A visit there almost never fails -so of course I take a little walk there from time to time. And this day; feb 22 2018 I was real lucky! Discovered a small area I had not seen earlier.. a […]

A small walk in the old FMV area Fredrikstad Feb 10 2018

Some impulsive visits are often the best ones.. like this day when I decided to visit an old, well known area in one of my home towns: Fredrikstad. I discover that it’s both good and important to revisit places you have enjoyed earlier again -as we often see things from another perspective or with ‘new’ […]

Along Glomma river – Torp

On a day late in November I went for a short drive to Torp & Sellebakk -places very close to where I live. Just to see if something useful for my camera might show up. There’s a walk path along the east side of the river Glomma there. Though walking is not too good for […]

What also showed up in Vaterland that other day!

Just as I was walking around looking for more old houses or strange things that I have overlooked earlier in this exciting area -this old US car came slooooowly around the corner! I took this shot from my hip -in a hurry )..  But the guys in it were real nice and said I could […]

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 […]

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 […]
