Alesund is a beautifully situated, delightful small city in Norway that emerged, like the proverbial phoenix, from a disastrous fire in 1904 that destryed much of the city and left thousands homeless. The authorities set to work rebuilding almost immediately, and within 3 years had built well over 600 new structures. Most of the buildings that had burnt down in the fire had been built of wood and in traditional Scandinavian style. In rebuilding the city, the authorities ordered that all the new structures be built of concrete or stone and that the style be the the style then fashionable in other European countries, Art Nouveau. Today, large sections of the city consist of the very attractive and now colourfully painted Art Nouveau buildings built from 1905 through 1907. Shot with my Nikon D7000.

I’m a photographer living in Toronto, ON, Canada. I enjoy photographing the architecture, street life, plants and water fowl in my home city. I also love travel photography and capturing reflections on all possible reflective surfaces.

    Nice work! I tried to go to Ålesund on a cruise but the cruise company refused to take us there citing bad weather…. still there’s always another time :-P

    Great to read the story to go with the photograph with the explanation for why I thought it was Norway straight away but was confused by the stone :-P goes to look at the others in your gallery

  • Thank you very much, ellismorleyphoto. We just got back from our “Voyage of the Vikings” cruise on the 1st of this month, and we, too, ran in to bad weather problems that prevented our ship from landing at ports and doing promised scenic cruising off Iceland. At least we didn’t have to miss out any ports in Norway (in fact, we got an extra one—Molde), bgut we did miss Red Bay, Labrador (Canada), and both the stop at Djupivogur and the scenic cruising in Prince Kristiansund, Well, I guess the weather is still beyond human control!

    Sounds fantastiskt :-P Great that you also got to hit Canada but I would definitely recommend a future trip to Iceland…. just remember that even in July the nights are closing in and it’s not exactly warm…. but if you can get there, it will be worth it.
