Lamps for sale!
Hmm... These were soooo... ugly that I just could not resist taking a photograph of them....
I cannot remember the price (the sign behind is the price of the unit), but the lamps were certainly not cheap.

Street art seen outside Tou Scene.

Some people have a real treasure sitting in their garage!
This is a veteran Chevrolet, but I do not know the actual model.
Anyway, what a very lucky owner!

These modern flats are central and fairly high up, so they probably have a good view.
But they are quite small and pretty expensive.
I guess that this is the same anywhere, you can pay quite a lot for something small that is central, especially if it has a view.

"Storm in a teacup"
Or in this case, "Storm on a rug"...
A friends dog, aptly named "Storm", spins like a little whirlwind when he is pleased to meet people that he knows. A friendly little guy, fast on his feet, he loves to play "catch me if you can"..

Dusavik, a busy place for the oil industry and also an area where many people keep their boats.

Saturday 24 September 2011

The region of Stavanger includes lots of small places/communities.
This is Grødem, Randaberg, with a nice view of the mountains.
As you can see, it was pretty cloudy.

Lots of dark colors this season as well...

Wednesday 21 September 2011

We get many different entertainers in town.
I have seen and heard this man playing his music around Breivatnet a number of times.
Live entertainment always seems to add to the atmosphere around any town.
Do you have similar things happening where you live?

Student housing close to Stavanger university.
These buildings are very new and have been decorated by the art students.

Lunch at work!
As seen from a bus window....

I hope that you all had a good weekend!

Saturday 17 September 2011

Most tourists are heading back home now....
Holidays are over!

Friday 16 September 2011

Valbergtårnet - Open for tourists or anyone else who wants to take a good look from the top.
There was an interesting handmade crafts shop at the bottom of the tower, and it used to be free to go inside. Now the craft shop has gone, and you have to PAY to go inside the tower.

The city looks very different at night...

Wednesday 14 September 2011

This is a night shot from the "colorful" street (Øvre Holmegate).

Tuesday 13 September 2011

Early morning in the city centre.
This is the main office for business and trade...
I wanted to share this photograph with you because the colors of the light from the sky reflecting in the windows caught my attention and looked quite beautiful.

Monday 12 September 2011

Yes, I did my duty as a citizen and voted.....

Sunday 11 September 2011

Our local elections are coming up.
For weeks we have been reading and hearing about all of the promises for change from the different parties...

Saturday 10 September 2011

So simple and so nice!
We were around 35 people last night, who enjoyed good local seafood in a party tent.

Friday 9 September 2011

We have many people who are very busy bagging in our streets. . . .
They are not Norwegian, but mainly from Bucharest.
I feel sorry for them, but I also wonder what the tourists think when they arrive and see them all over.

Thursday 8 September 2011

If you arrive at Stavanger airport, you might see the landscape like this.
The airport is approximately a little to the right of the center of this photograph.
Or you might come in just over the beach.

Wednesday 7 September 2011

"Rhapsody in Blue", our new roses. Will the bush survive the winter?
What is your favorite rose?

Be grateful if you have a loving family.
Anyway, you do not choose you family, but you choose your friends.

Saturday 3 September 2011

It came in quite quickly....
It is a boat "Rygerdoktoren" that takes patients from small places such as the outlying islands, straight in to the city centre, where an ambulance is waiting.

Friday 2 September 2011

Yesterday, I stopped the car and went to see if she was still there...
And she was.
Grilling season is perhaps nearing its end ?

Thursday 1 September 2011

"Johanne og Broremann" (Johanne and her little brother) was made by Svein Magnus Håvarstein in 1993, and was a present to the city from our biggest local newspaper, "Stavanger Aftenblad".
It is one of my favorite statues in Stavanger.
