As a cruise ship leaves Oslo

One of the many cruise ships that visit Oslo is here photographed on the way out of the Oslo fjord, Norway in the afternoon for a sailing further around the coast.
In this photo it was an afternoon with some clouds sourronding the low sun right south of the Oslo harbour. Photo capture from Fjellstrand, Nesodden.

Reflections at Puerto del Sol, Madrid

The Puerta del Sol
(Spanish for "Gate of the Sun") is one of the best known and busiest places in Madrid. This is the centre (km 0) of the radial network of Spanish Roads. The square also contains the famous clock whose bells mark the traditional eating of the Twelve grapes and the beginning of a new year. The New Year's celebration has been broadcast live on LA1 since December 31, 1962.

Bottles of Coke as a piece of modern art

During our visit to the Parque de Retiro in Madrid we also visited a small art and installation exhibition where we also could see this display of these Coke bottles placed within a glass box - in a way forever frozen.

Spanish eggs in Madrid

Under a summer stop in Madrid we was visiting the grand park: Parque de Retiro where we also could visit a small modern art exhibition. Some very interesting layout to see like this incredible display of thousands of eggs set up in a total "military" order... IMO only way to have an interesting photo was by shooting from a low level like seen above.

A kind of selfportrait from Madrid

In the Parque de Retiro in Madrid we was visiting this small art exhibition/studio setting that was open this summer. By entering a white closed room the photographer could make his selfportrait by standing by the mirror - while at the same time the madam was a part of the same setting by just position herself beside the mirror - or something like that.... Anyway a fun result and quite original IMO.
