Sør-Fogn Skule.

The old school, - Sør-Fogn Skule.
Seen from the back, behind the teachers training school.
The front did not look so nice though,  with a damaged door and roof, plus rubbish lying around.
But it did look like it is still being used by someone, students I guess.

Baa Baa little Lamb...

Baa Baa Little Lamb....

Well, I don´t know much about the sculpture nor the artist, but I like it, and I know that there are thousands of students and kids who have seen it outside the entrance to the teachers training school.

At the cantina.

Soon lunch.

Cold day!
Nice and warm in the cantina at the teachers training school.

No, they don`t sell wine there!
As always, good food and nice people working there.

The SALES are still on.
Some people buy less and perhaps are more interested in quality.
Many order most of their shopping using the internet.

(This is from Bolia.)

Just a small detail from one of the stairs in the area called "Gamle Stavanger", where the old small white wooden houses are located.

Stormy weekend.

The best thing to do this weekend is to stay indoors.....

Selbu votter.

If you google SELBU VOTTER, and look for images, you will find a whole range of different patterns.
These are my newest ones, and they keep me warm on cold
days like we have now.

A drug corner.

Like many other places, drugs and drug dealing also happens here in Stavanger!
The green box at the back is for used needles.
It is sad but true, and is unfortunately a part of life.

Shipping containers.

Two students had a great idea, and have started off with making inexpensive student housing.
Unfortunately it cost more than they first thought to turn shipping containers an ideal place to live a student life.
Anyway, it is smart ! And Norway needs this for students in the years to come. I wish them good luck!

Norway is a long way behind Denmark when it comes to all the bakeries, the choices and opening hours ...... Especially on SUNDAYS !

But remember, we have BRUSTADBUA, where you can get freshly made bread,  pastries etc.

It was unusual to see HURTIGRUTEN docked in Stavanger this afternoon.
When I found out that it was possible to take a look inside, I did just that, and like many others, had a good look around.

Wednesday 1 January 2014


I have been photographing and snap shooting with my iPhone, my small or big Nikon for several years.
I have captured many places, events and people.

In May 2013 I met a sporty French guy who had just arrived in Stavanger (from Annecy, in the French Alps.)
He not only wanted to go to the North Cape, he actually DID IT, alone, and on his bike!

Take a good look at his blog:

Google translate it if you don't read French.

Of all the nice and interesting people I have met, I think JULIEN became the hero!

The message to all of us on the first day of the new year is NEVER GIVE UP, and if you have DREAMS / WISHES ........ just GO FOR IT!
