When I was in Helsinki in February 2017 I was able to shoot quite some interesting photos -and have uploaded 2 albums showing some industry and around in the city earlier. I also managed to shoot some from the U16 hockey matches -which actually was the real reason I was there -to watch my grandson play for the Norwegian National Team U16!! 🙂 And now I finally made this album showing the photos I think are worth showing -as I’m not that much of an action / sport photographer I’m afraid, that’s why it have taken this long ) ..

Due to a major upgrade / change of layout-plugin Nov-09-2018 -older links inside the blog articles from here -might no longer work. (I plan on -maybe -fixing them all -but it will take while)… sorry.


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.

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 thought of going there. Glad I did! Found charming old buildings there and this ‘hut’ etc.
I will put some shots -also later -in:

Fredrikstad # 2


Also have a look in:

Man altered / suburban landscapes

-and other albums too later -follow my front page.

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 earlier.. 
This -and more to come the next days -are shot in the end of oct-17. -Visit my album:

Industry Fredrikstad 2

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 charming, little house on a little hill -surrounded by autumn trees..
I will add a couple of more from Østfold later on -in my album:

Landscapes in Østfold

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 in later! 🙂 Have a look at my other

PS – works

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 of business in the scenery..).. So! -I put it in both these albums!:
