A NYC Viking


A real New York Viking attending the Norwegian-American parade in Brooklyn, celebrating the Norwegian National Day.

The server that stores my pictures is temporarily down, so I have had to use alternative systems for my latest photos. I'm sorry.

This is my contribution to Dragonstar's The weekend in Black and White. It is a continuation of Aileni's Monochrome Weekend.

The anachronistic Viking - does he do weddings or kid's parties? (Hi, Rune: all kidding aside, it's a great photo)

Dina said...

Wow, he does look like a Viking!
Just glad he is smiling.

Himmel er han ekte??? Utrolig flott! Men han minnet meg mer om Terje Vigen enn en viking!

He reminds me of one of those garden gnomes. In a good way.

I consider myself a Viking in the US and I don't dress like that or have a beard for that matter. That said, good luck with your server problem.

Priceless, Runee. This is an awesome shot, simnply adored the smile in his face.

Kisses from Nydia.

Blogger is playing games here too. People can and do leave comments but they never show up.

I really like this character.

Wow, RuneE...this is such a wonderful black and white! This guy is full of stories from the past and so beautifully reflected in this photo!
