All things are passing… The end
This is another shot from the wet foggy morning near my home. Many of you probably remember my previous shot from this place. It was also foggy day and the lake was frozen around this small boat. Now few mounts later this boat is sunk. So, I think it gives something nice to the composition on this picture. All things are passing… This is the end of some forgotten boat. But I am full of sorrow.
Something from today`s walk on the Fløien.
So it was amazing walk with many reason. The first and the most important because it was first real walk through the mountains from the looooong time. I need it. I need it so much, it is so difficult always sit down with computer and not move. Because the winter time here in Bergen is dark and rainy is not so much possibilities to move up. The rest of the year, like you know, I am always on the run. And I love it. The second reason is the photography. Too long without any photo walks. And because the day was nice, foggy but without any rain. Exactly good to walk. During my walk up the visibility changed few times. The fog come and go away few times. Sun trying to watch on the city. Beauty. Many people walking up and down. Just a nice time. On the top it was a really nice spectacle with the fog, clouds and sun. Below is only some moments immortalised by me. But believe during 1,5 hour which I spent on the top everything changed many time. I am glad and little bit tired. So this is the Bergen below the fog. Enjoy, and have a good evening.
To better see the city below the fog and clouds is recommended to watch in full screen view
From the series Bergen closer – meat bazaar.
Long time ago it was a meat bazaar. The building is placed in the heart of the city, close to Fish Market. It is so nice building mostly photographed from the front side. This is only one fully visible side with possibility to take the photo. Because the building is long is impossible to photograph it from the street without wide angle lenses. Even with good lenses is not enough distance to make all the line straight. I was trying it many times without satisfied results. So, now I try it different way. I tried to take photo closer and along. I like it, and I am curious what you think?
This week I post irregularly. This is so busy week. Even in the weekend time I will be busy. But today I am here, this is from the series Bergen closer – Meat bazaar from the flank.
Place I like in Bergen. Villaveien
In Bergen is many places I like. Sometimes it is only small narrow street. Sometimes whole district. Some parks. Places. This is short street over the Nygårdsparken. The street have a name Villaveien because along it is few nice old villas. Probably it was a reach people district long time ago, I do not know. The houses are so nice and renovated. I was showing this houses few times, here on my blog. Even this one which I like a lot. Because is painted in black and white it reminds some ecclesiastic, sacred building. Always when I am walking on this street I wonder what was this house previously. Maybe someone who knows give some information. The buildings, villas around now belongs to the Bergen University. About this one I do not know, because when the rest was reconstructed and painted this one no. In some specific Bergen`s weather, with the dark cloudy sky it looks like taken out from horror movie. I like to be here in every time I can. The autumn season gives this place many nice colours, and it is nice, even cute scenery. So, this is the Villaveien with house I like. I hope you will like it too.
Another reason why I like walking along this place is because the tourists have no time to come here. So far from the market places.
Exactly at the gate to the park this street changing the name to Parkveien. This is short street on the other side of park with few nice small hotels.
The Weather in Bergen is not always good.
I may say it is always bad. Only sometimes, like in October this year, we have had a beautiful month almost without any one drop of rain. Now is like always. Is wet, is dark and cold. Today on morning the mountain tops around Bergen was little bit white. It is not real snow, rather rain with some snowflakes, but the winter is on the road to us. I planed some trip for tomorrow and when I checked weather report for some parts of Hordaland it shows snow in the mountain. Brrrrr. Not good time for the hiking in mountains. Tires in my car already changed. So, I have a nice memories on my pictures. Like this one below. Bergen in the middle of October with fantastic autumn colours. Have a good Friday time whenever you are now, I hope you have a better weather with you
Open museum in autumn mood, Damsgård
The museum is placed in bad place. Or maybe different. So close to the industrial zone in one side and the main road in other side. In the last year it was reconstructed. Few days ago, I had to be close this place, and because was so nice weather I take some walk around. Now it looks much better then year ago. Even the district around look better, I think people who lives close. like this place to walk. For other it does not exist. So far from the city, little bit covered with no place to park cars. Moreover, this is a big problem in Bergen. I think not only for Bergen. Is many nice places to visit along the city, but is no places to leave the cars.
So, this is now nice place to visit, Open museum in autumn mood. On the picture is only the part visible from the road, little bit inside is few nice reconstructed wood buildings, including the old shop and few more. In front is probably the old machine to draw out boats. Definitely worth to visit.
From Paradis, autumn window
Photographed around month ago on Paradis, Bergen. Nice place to walk slowly between the old houses. because old houses always collaborate with old trees, this area looks nice in autumn. It is not often, some kind of plants on the walls here in Bergen. Everything because the weather. And the weather is strong. More than half year with rain. When the rains finished the wall have to dry so fast. But in some places I could find some garages or other small buildings looking like this. This is an old garage and outbuilding. Because i like the windows and doors, I always look for it. I hope you will like this window.
And this is my picture. Autumn window
Now I am busy. Too much work and additional things. This is the reason why I posted pictures from my archive. Today, like you may see on Instagram, was so nice foggy weather on morning. Lucky who had his camera during that time. I have not.. This is the link to some collage made by @turid_elisabeth
Have a great time everywhere around the world. Greetings from beautiful Bergen
This is autumn in the park. Nygårdspark Bergen
I wrote about this place few times before. I like it, and I am completely not glad with what I saw last time. At the top of the park hill, close to the Parkveien is some construction. I do not what is it. On the other side of park main road I saw some very old trees cut down. Sad view. I hope they made a place for new trees not for some buildings. This park looks like old, and I do not understand what is going on.
So, this is the picture taken on Sunday`s walk in some old path between the old beautiful trees. And I wish myself to find this place untouched on the next walk. Autumn in the park. Nygårdspark.
Bergen closer, Hotel entrance sculpture
I photographed this sculpture many times. It looks fine in every light, but in the night time is fantastic. Surprise for me not for the proffi photographers, without the flash light this sculpture is not visible on the picture. Ha Ha. So, I used the flash light to take this picture and I think is nice. This is another piece from Bergen closer mini series. Now in deep autumn and winter time I will visit the city more often. I like to take pictures in the dark. I am still bewitched with the city lights in the dark, especially when it is the harbour city with lot of water. The lights never sleep. In the dark season, like now, I could take the night pictures even around 6 pm. Is nice.
This is the entrance to one of many Bergen hotels. This is hotel with nice view to the old city Bergen and Bryggen. I have never been inside, but I can imagine the view. So, this is the night view. In daylight is also visible Bryggen in between the buildings. Hotel entrance sculpture.
Have a nice weekend all around the world. Greetings from Bergen
It was few days without post, everything have a reason
This reason is changing the computer. Long time I used only laptops, and now because my photography passion, I decide to bay desktop computer. Big screen was the reason. Now I could say, it was a terrible time with laptops and photos. What a big different to do something on the big screen. Everything is on pros. But it takes a long time to move everything between the machines. I was lucky because most of my pictures is on the external drive. I do this until few years ago I lost almost all with the machine accident. But even without pictures, is so many software and other important files to move. Because I made it after my daily work it takes three days. Long time. So now I am on the new machine and like I wrote it above I am so, so glad. 24 inch touch screen gives me much better possibility to work with the pictures. I hope you will see the difference. I am double lucky, in this month I change my camera and my computer.
This is the first of my pictures which I saw and made on new screen. Autumn tree in Gamlehaugen park. Now the weather in Bergen change, and is dark, wet but worm.
