Constitution Day

Yesterday, the 17th of May, we celebrated Norway´s constitution day. The 17th of May is very much a day for the children and there are children´s parades throughout the country. I went downtown to watch the parade with my youngest son. He liked it in the beginning, but got very quickly tired. So I only got a few shots from the celebration. But I was lucky enough that a colleague of mine wanted to pose for me in her national costume, called bunad. The national costumes are from different regions, and hers is from Nordland county. Mine is from the Gudbrandsdalen valley in Oppland county. The last shot is of me and my colleague taken by another colleague and friend of mine, Gro-Anita Mortensen.
