Nei der var det ikke mye trøkk! En kjedelig fredagskveld mao. Må nok til med både sterkere og hottere saker, gitt!! :-)

Ha en fin fredagsaften!

Does 0 pressure mean no stress?..not always!
i like the title, and the B&w matches well with the nostalgy of great old steamers...

Dave said...

excellent tonal range.

REJEN said...

meget smukt sort/hvid billede....

Marie said...

Perfekt för mono.

@nemonen said...

Sådana motiv gör sig utmärkt i svartvitt.

Carver said...

I love the low pressure times.

BirgittaB said...

Snyggt och annorlunda objekt!

Irene said...

Snakk om å være nullstilt! Det er sånn det skal være før helga!

Ha en fin fin helg ... klem fra Irene

Dragonstar said...

I love the dials. They make an interesting pattern.

Lachezar said...

Fine detail, nicely captured!

Dimple said...

Great shot, and the title fits perfectly. That steamer is not going anywhere!

Rolig... ;)

Impressive symbols of steam in action! Beautifully composed image!

Bringing life to an idiom...

Great shot! Very good choice for a mono!

Yeah, but just wait 'till things get cookin' again!

Love the title and the following photo - made me laugh. Superb, Rune.

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

Der går de helgen i møte med null i trykk ja, kan være greit det også :) Stilig s/h bilde fra en 42modell.

Lucy Corrander said...

How funny that they aren't all facing the same way.

Striking clarity.

Right pressure for your B/W shot my friend

Ann said...

why do steamers need to know the pressure?

Lara Neusiedler said...

that's a great title, leaves place for a lot of thinking!

Kitty said...

The numbers are written in such a beautiful old print - they make a lovely little bunch of gauges!

Dagrun said...

Hihi.. ikke mye futt der nei. Knallbra s/hv motiv, Rune!

T. Becque said...

Nice find. I love thigns like this!

VALKYRIEN said...

Utrolig mye rart du finner på din fotovandring! Tøft bilde med veldig passende tittel.

Tåkeheimen under her er jo bare vakker. Rart det der, hvor fine sånne diffuse og tåkete bilder KAN bli!

Hans HB said...

Flott valg til B/W bilder! Liker tittelen, - passer virkelig til motivet!
Ønsker deg ei flott ny uke med passe trykk!!

amatamari© said...

A very original image: great idea, wonderful shot!!!
:-)

Fabien said...

Nice pict

Genie said...

What a neat subjet for your photo in black and white. It is so sharp and clear. I really like shots like this one.

lynnwiles said...

Wonderful b&w of an interesting subject. So crisp - your new camera and lens?

I also like the misty one below, very different mood.

awarewriter said...

Another winning shot. I like the Misty Reflection as well. Thanks for dropping by. I used Ilford FP4+ for that shot. Ilford film has a wonderful tonal range and character. I must buy more.

Trotter said...

Hi Rune! OK, after Halloween and its tuesday's sequels, it's time to get back to the blogosphere... ;)

And after four posts, Blogtrotter Two is leaving Algiers 2009... Enjoy and have a great week ahead!

Anne said...

Jøss, trodde du hadde gått helt i surr i klokksnuingen jeg til å begynne med, men noen jobber under trykk her ja :-) lekkert bilde, MEN det under her, sukk og stønn, rydder plass på veggen, ønskes i 2,5 x 1 meter!!! sinnsykt flott Rune
