A Monday stroll


I must say that I felt a bit stiff after yesterday's excursion, so today I decided that I had to keep myself within normal limits. However, since the weather was nice I grabbed by "best" camera and went along. I have found that its a sad day when I can't find something worth-while to snap. In this case it was a rusty and dis-used mooring for coastal vessels that I have passed a lot of times without ever having taken a closer look.

Today I did.

Hi Rune.. I like the sound of how your country does Fathers Day... :O)
I also like this old iron mooring and the colouring of rust... the smashed bottle could have been done by a drunken thug... but I like to think it as laid in that spot since the last ship was blessed, named and launched.. :O)

Tror nok det er flere som hadde vært støl og stiv etter den runden du hadde i går. Den var flott fanget denne gamle rustne fortøynings sjakkelen.

A spectacular shot.
I like the color of the oxidation.

Good photograph - very unusual

it is great, but I see you also have idiots there who break bottles and leave them lying around! It drives me crazy hearing selfish characters smashing bottles in the park across the road from our house, and knowing little kids are going to be playing there.

You know, I think I must be Norwegian, for I love every one of your photos so much I can't decide which to comment on, and feels familiar in a way that I can't even begin to explain. Maybe we just like rusty old things alike, or wooden sculptures like these, and the rock cottage, maybe I lived there in another lifetime..

Besides that I have wanted to go to Norway, and for no reason at all really. It's like a magnet pulling me, to Fjords and X country skiing on my way to work making Norwegian furniture or some handy thing such as that.

I am Scandinavian, but I had thought more like Swede and Dane, but who knows, maybe there was a Norwegian milkman..?

Ah, the true photographer--finding subjects everywhere.

Ida said...

Det finnes motiver over alt. Noen passerer man mange ganger, uten å foretrekke en mine. Det beviste du jo godt på din andre blogg.
Dette motivet har bare ventet på at du skulle oppdage det. :)
Og som du vet, så er det flere av dine bloggvenninner som liker rust. ;)

I enjoy these types of overlooked subjects. We take these itmes for granted as we go about our daily routine.
