Back to my series from my archives of old (relatively old at least) photos. Today the post features shots of some old things. Enjoy
On Sunday I took the boys to the folk museum. My oldest son enjoys spending time there, and my hope is that the youngest one will too eventually. It´s more fun in the summer time with an old tractor and plenty of animals like sheep, pigs, cows and hens. Still it was a nice walk around the museum, and I managed to take a few shots too.
Trøndelag Folk Museum, also called Sverresborg because of the fort that King Sverre had built there way back in the 12th century, is situated in Trondheim and dates back to 1909. The folk museum is a collection of buildings from all over the Trøndelag area (the counties of South and North Trøndelag, which basically is the mid-part of Norway). Most of the buildings are from the 18th and 19th century, with some exceptions.
1. An old fisherman´s cabin from the coast of Trøndelag.
2. The Haltdalen stave church. The church was built in the late 12th century, and there are still parts of it that dates back to the beginning, but it has also been restored and added to few times. The church is built up today as it looked like when it first was constructed. A stave church is a type of construction that uses framwork design with solid corner pillars, called staves. The church from Haltdalen is a very simple kind of stave church. The most famous ones in Norway are complex buildings with towers and decorations like dragon heads.

4. The main house from a farm in the mountain area of Oppdal, almost 2 hours south of Trondheim. This was a great farm where they had plenty of resources so that they could show off their house with red paint at a time when most didn´t use pain on houses. To the right there is a small “stabbur”, and behind the buildings you can see what remains of the ruins of the old fort.
The snow is finally starting to disappear and the sun has been warming for a few days now. The next days it´s supposed to rain, but right not rain is so much better than snow.
Here are a few more early signs of spring. These shots were taken during the weekend. It feels quite weird to call mid-April early spring, but hey this is Norway for you.
I guess the next one needs explanation for you to understand that this is a spring sign. It is my son studying a spider that has woken up in the spring sun.
I guess this now can be called a series. So this is my new post in the series “A look back at some old photos”. Previously I have posted “Some old spring photos” and “A foggy day at the cemetery“. The following photos have no connection except for the fact that these are all photos that I’m happy with myself. I hope you like them too. Enjoy.
This week has been very busy at work with lots of meetings both here in Trondheim and in Oslo. I was in Oslo from Tuesday to Wednesday and took a few travelling shots with my phone.
1. On the plane on Tuesday
2. and 3. From the train station by the National Theatre
4. Sunset by the airport in Trondheim when we arrived on Wednesday evening at about 8.30 p.m.
I haven´t really taken the camera out much the last week, I´m tired of taking photos of snow.. But yesterday I felt like capturing our friends the roe deers that come to our garden a couple of times a day to eat bird food leftovers. They are such beautiful animals. I just hope they wont eat our flowers when spring finally arrives. The light was not the easiest, with both shadows and lights, and all the photos are taken through the living room windows.
As I write the title of this post, it´s once more snowing outside.. As my followers already know, I love snow. But I also love the changing of the seasons. Snow in April is not uncommon, but still I´m now tired of snow and cold. I want spring with small wild flowers, crocuses and buds on the trees. And seeing photos from those of my blogger friends that are now posting spring photos, just makes me long for it even more.
So still plenty of snow outside, but still there are some small signs of spring.
