In september this year -2018 -I was so lucky to be invited inside the area -and even inside a couple of buildings -at the beautiful power station Rånåsfoss in Akershus Norway. I have some great friends to thank for this as they had connections there. The photos from this visit can be view in the […]

A hasty trip to Elverum, Hedmark

    March 20, 2018 I had to drive 3 hours up north here in Norway to the Elverum area in Hedmark.In order to collect a new fridge needed in my camper at Hvaler. So.. not a photo-trip actually but of course I don’t go that far without my camera! So even if it was […]

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’ […]

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 […]

Power to Hvaler

Just a short walk from where I spend my spare, leisure time at Hvaler I have this charming little power station -or rather -transformer. Such are always exciting subjects for the camera I think with all it’s wires and details -so about time I shot it! Album: Misc. industry


On my trip some miles north this year -right after passing Sørumsand -I also stopped by a lovely power station; Bingsfoss. Usually our power stations looks like old castles but this one started up in 1977 so actually rather new.. -more photos from there will be added the next few days.. Check my album Misc. […]

Olive oil factory

Today I took a dive in my archive from 2015 -and found a few photos from a visit to an olive oil factory in Greece then. It was a guided tour and there was no activity there just then -good for the shots in some way -but ongoing production would be nice too though. I managed […]

Industry Greåker

Greåker -where I live -just a small place very close to Sarpsborg -but actually quite big in industry -specially old plants. Guess I over the years have been so used to see most of it -but I recently learned that I’ve been passing some without noticing! A dear flickr friend and clever photographer -Astrid Westvang […]
