Views from a quay

When I'm out strolling I often take a break at a small more-or-less disused quay a couple of kilometres from home. It is seldom that I don't find anything worthwhile to snap. There is always something "new": The light may be different, the weather, the season, the time of day - even I may be different, or at least feel different.

Examples - I know I have posted the workshop above

This old boathouse has also been snapped many times.

Not to mention this bridge ("Sotrabroen"), this time with M343 from The Royal Norwegian Navy passing beneath.

Et flott sted for utforsking:)Man oppdager stadig nye motiver på slike turer i nærmiljøet.

I like the contrast between the green algae (?) and the blue water in the second photo. Sometimes some of our best photos come from meandering around areas we are already familiar with, which I know is true for me.

Sometimes that is the best way to do it, although I was once almost thrown out of the lunch-restaurant at Raffle's Hotel in Singapore for using a video camera discreetly placed on a table.

Nydelige bilder du har tatt her.Det kommer vel kanskje mye an på dagsformen hva vi finner å ta bilder av,hva vi ser.Pluss alt det andre du nevner.

Ting er i endring, akkurat som oss. Vi ser kanskje med et annet øye i morgen, det kan påvirkes av humøret, vær og vind, men det blir jo et nytt motiv av det som du sier. Fine bilder Rune.

Beautiful photos

I dag skulle det nok vært bilder fra Askøybroen og ikke Sotrabroen etter all gyngingen..... :-)

I wonder sometimes if you (and several other bloggers who post pics of the scenes around their homes) have any idea of how much enjoyment I get out of these "walk-abouts?" Your photos are so beautiful, so expressive and these little tours give me a chance to see places I would love to visit but know that will never happen. Thus, I see and enjoy them vicariously, through your lens and such a lovely sight they are too! Keep 'em coming!

I agree that some subjects are worthy of being photographed over and over.

SÅnn er jeg også (bare med litt andre objekter enn du da). Nydelige Bergensbilder.

Very clever 'q' but sadly I had to read down a bit to remember just what a quay is. Definitely enjoyed seeing the blue, blue skies and water.
Thanks for sharing!

Love that third shot, Rune.

Denise said...

Lovely images Runee. I like the stonework on the building very much but all your photographs are superb. Thank you so much for sharing them.

Fine bilder! Jeg tar også mest bilder i nærmiljøet, motivene endrer seg hele tiden med vær, vind og årstid! Broer er forresten gode motiver - jeg er fascinert av ingeniørkunsten :-)

Godt du stroller med kamera. Det gir oss besøkere vakre opplevelser også.
Har vært plaget av isjias en uke (prolaps i 4. skive) men kan oppsøke steder med kamera her østpå også

The sky is always such a beautiful blue in your photos. Wonderful!

Dick said...

You are so right, the same place can be really different in another light. Nice pictures.

Lekre bilder! Flott bilde av Sotrabrua. Har aldri køyrt under den med båt(trur eg:))men over den bil har eg jo då gjort:) Fin detalj med bølgene på bilde nr 2. Likar godt naturbildene dine. Du får fram så flotte fargar.

What you say makes me think about a quote: "it's always the same river, but never the same water".
Eyes, light,state of mind and many other things can produce a different picture of the same place. In your case, what remains is the quality of your work...

Barbara Martin said...

All three photos are lovely, providing a nice pause to think and enjoy the scene.

Shalom RuneE
Good point--how you/we change between photo shoots.
I love ALL your pictures!
