New art in town.

















We have got a new decorated wall in town.
SKUR 6, near the harbour.
It was made by the artist and freelance illustrator Anette Moi, and done for the food festival.

Do you like it?

Jackie in old Stavanger.





















This is Jackie from London.
She works for a German bank in the city, the financial district of London.
It was her first time in Stavanger (and Norway.)
I asked her how she could describe our city, and she said she found it a slower pace and more relaxed.
Hope you have had a good holiday and take good memories back home with you.

The food festival finished last night.
















The food festival (GLADMAT) is over for this year.
It has been a popular festival for lots of people.
Here you can see just a bit of the constant flow of people walking along the harbour area during the festival. It was difficult to find a table yesterday, but we managed at the end, and also had a few drinks at different places.

Festival visitors.











More visitors at the food festival.
They had found a nice place on the side of the harbour, not far away from the concert house, and were enjoying the food, drinks, and happy atmosphere.

The food festival are reckoning that there will be around 250.000 visitors.
Perhaps even more now, since the weather is so good:)

GLADMAT / FOOD FESTIVAL 2016














The annual food festival (GLADMAT) is on now, and so far, has had sunshine and really nice summer temperatures.
Walking around looking for something to put out here. I guess what I thought most represented the festival, was not so much the few new things, but mainly all of the happy people who enjoyed the event with friends or family. For some it is a tradition to meet up, have something nice to eat and drink, and just relax in town.

These four Ladies where just doing that!
Having a good time!
"You know, we are all 85 years old" one of them told me.
GREAT LADIES
Happy summer to all of you!!!!

On the blog (www.stavangerdailyphoto.com) you can find more images from the event the last 7-8 years.
