Today I will not show you another image of Stavanger on a rainy day!

I`ll invite you to take a good look at these pictures taken by photographers who has been working or perhaps still are at Stavanger Aftenblad. (Our biggest daily local newspaper, where this exhibition is now.)
Anyway, it shows what the market place looked like before it ended up being such an empty place most of the time.


If you look at the photo in the middle at the bottom, you might see someone famous.

I hope our market place will turn in to something nice, and I feel sorry for students who came up with several good ideas, and still don`t know if the ideas will end up in something positive.

It is probably the politicians and the money that will give some sort of a result. Time will tell.

Must be interesting to see "how it was" years ago.
2nd one down on the left, reminds me of a seaside town (for some reason).
Otherwise, looks like the Queen mum to me, or, "maybe" Liz?
Anywho... have a nice week.

I miss rain and autumn weather ! Still difficult to get through the summer over here for me. Thank you for the inspiration of these great pictures.
And no, usually I don't buy lottery tickets. Please have you all a good Tuesday.

A nice photo exhibit. I guess the "famous" person is the queen of England or some other royalty? I can't enlarge very well on this computer. :)
