A souvenir my way comes

The Tour of Norway passed close to my doorstep on Wednesday this week. Being I am a big cycling fan I placed myself where I knew they would have to take a sharp lefthand turn. I lay in the grass with my camera ready and shot off a load of images. After the leaders and the main Peloton had blasted past a domestique from the Uno-X team came past, his hunched back carrying several water bottles for his thirsty team mates.  He threw his empty bottle away and that was my souvenir of the day…plus this shot. So whomever you were (I didn’t get your number) thank you.

Norway’s National day. Celebrated with brass bands and children’s parades. It’s a chance for everyone to dress in their national dress or Bunad. In this shot my wife is on the left,standing with a friend wearing Buskerud Bunad. My Mother-in-Law has sewn and embroidered both of these dresses by hand some years ago.

Something a bit different. This orange rose lay on our table Sunday morning. It was just begging to to photographed. I now use this shot as desktop wallpaper. All post is done in SilverEfex Pro 2 using the Selective colour function.
