A roof and a lost balloon


You may see other things than trains at a station.
The Bergen Railway Station



This Monochrome concept came from Aileni at The Monochrome Weekly

Simultaniously awe-gripping and heart tugging.

Absolutely fantastic.

It's hurting my chest I am amazed by the top one so much.

Dramatic pictures made very human by the little balloon that got away.

Funny, just a few days ago I was contemplating the fancy balloons that had risen to the high airport terminal ceiling.

Thanks for commenting on the Haaretz news item. I agree with you. I think it is shameful.

I just love your eye for details and the way you're able to capture them!

Lene said...

Fantastisk effektfullt å knipse opp mot dette taket. Veldig flott. Og jeg fant ballongen ;)

ElinSire said...

Enig med Lene her, effektfullt er ordet! Utrolig stilig, Rune :)

Stilige bilder av takkonstruksjonen.

John said...

Prefer the second one; it shows why you should always look up and also behind you, you never know what you are missing.

Gallow said...

The first one is my favorite. An excellent choice for monochrome.

I like the dark straight lines contrasting the white covering.

lynnwiles said...

Beautiful lines and symmetry with a balloon to boot. Is it gray skies above?

Riet said...

Beautiful dramatic pictures.

Carver said...

Fantastic shots. So stark and interesting.

Vita Stunder said...

Snyggt och spännande former Rune!

Ha en fin helg :)

Della said...

Det var ett spännande tak, men lite synd på ballongen...

Aileni said...

I imagine that is a fairly frequent occurrence.

Sylvia said...

Well, the balloons always try to reach the sky and don't understand what gets in their way!

√ Abraham Lincoln said...

That is different. A lost balloon and a lot of tears probably.

AL said...

Whoever owns that balloon would probably be glad when he/she found out that it was not lost and was captured artistically.

awarewriter said...

There's so much to see when you pay attention. Your creative eye has given us two powerful images. I like the geometry and the soft gray of the panels. Very nice.

Anne said...

Helt fantatisk Rune, og jeg er sjeleglad for at du skrev hvor du har vært hvis ikke hadde jeg vel undret meg grønn over det også :-)

Ha en superduper kveld.

SquirrelQueen said...

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

En ensom tilværelse for ballongen der oppe, men du verden så stilige bilder det ble, veldig flott komposisjon!

imac said...

Bengbeng said...

i just love the way u came out with this title..very creative

Mona Sweden said...

Jag gillar såna här bilder! Visst är det kul att rikta kameran rätt upp. Det finns fantastiska saker att upptäcka om man bara tittar uppåt.

Robin said...

Balloons always look so forlorn trapped against the ceiling like that. I hope the child who lost it wasn't too upset.

~~Randi, Hverdagsprat~~ said...

Et ensomt og vakkert bilde.

Irene said...

Dette har jeg sansen for .... ikke bare fordi jeg er en "gammel" bygningsingeniør.
Jeg fant ballongen jeg også!

Sagatun said...

Flotte linjer og bilde av ting folk vanligvis ikke ser på.
Fortsatt god helg

As that you are into photography, I thought that you may be interested in a monthly blog posting called “5 on the fifth” where You can either take 5 random pictures of anything that happens to you on the 5th of November (or the days leading up to it) or perhaps go for my suggested theme.

Just post your pictures on your own blog and then post a comment on MY blog with your name, location and link to your site – I then update the entry so the world has your link. Remember to mention my blog on your own blog so that your visitors get to see the other contributions.

Interested?

Here’s a link to my blog:

and a link to the “5 on the fifth” entries:

Great lines Rune! I love your pictures:)
Ha fin dag.

Carolyn Ford said...

Great lines and light! And, the lonely balloon must miss his little child too! Beautiful!

esnorway said...

fine bilder rune

Ida said...

Ja, det gjelder å ha blikket med seg,
og det har du.
På et slikt sted (med flere) haster de fleste frem og videre...
Fine linjer og former.
Det ser nesten ut som det første bildet er bøyd. Stilig! :)

Sistertex said...

Excellent as usual and so many good stories can come from it.

Thank you for sharing!

Amazing what one sees when looking up -- more than trains! And I can imagine the child looking up for his lost balloon.
