This is my photo, - one of more than 3600 photos of flowers from all over Norway have been sent to a national newspaper. If you take a look at http://www.dagbladet.no/2011/07/28/nyheter/innenriks/terror/utoya/17485237/
you will see a picture of a rose that is made up from all of these individual photographs.
You can also zoom in to see the individual pictures.

The roses will be turned in to the soil, the cards will be collected at the state archive.
Not since king Olav died, back in 1991, has there been so many flowers, candles and cards.

Outstanding remembrance, Gunn. I clicked on the newspaper's rose and went looking for yours. I didn't find it, but I am tremendously impressed by the creativity of the project and by the talent of all the participants. The emotion comes right through the internet to all of us.

To Jack. The photo is in the "blue section", close to an image with " I morgen" written on a wall. My photo is just one, you can see more than 4000 photos from all over Norway.

A beautiful photo to remember a sad, tragic event! I'm still heartbroken about Norway's loss of future leaders and future parents!
