It all started when I was about 8 when my brother received a camera as a present. It fascinated me, and a year later, I won a basic camera for holiday work at school. The virus was inoculated.
I had my first SLR 18 years ago, went staight for the darkroom at Uni but decided that staying up all nights was not a good idea so I restricted myself to only taking photos after a while. I quickly jumped on the digital bandwagon and loved it straight away..

    Fab!! The Vikings were a fascinating population. The Stockholm Museum was brilliant to have an insight about how the vikings used to live. The Oslo Museum is principally on their boat and talents as sea people… The boats were buried with the deceased chief.. they had to build new opnes then :O. Thew were intact, that’s crazy!!

    These bows and curves in white and black are a real beauty.

  • Thank you very much! :)
    I must say the architecture was unbelievable, a piece of art in itself, built for the purpose of the museum..
