I'm a 1947 model and I'm a Norwegian polio survivor from Oslo. Neither my polio that showed up again when I was close to 50 nor my astma and C.O.P.D. like the Norwegian winter so I spent 5-6 months a year for 17 years in tropic climate in Goa on the west cost of India. Therfore a lot of my photos are shot over there where my function is better with less pain. Now I spend most of my time in Norway. I speak a lot better English than I write. Most of my English I learned on the road during 4 months thru 13 countries from Norway to India in 1972-73. Later my English is developed thru a lot of traveling. Photographing is just a hobby I as a retired fill up my time with. Bad photos as well as some of my normal photos I play with in Adobe Photoshop and even though it's not art I present a lot of them here. I'm perhaps more like a painter that makes his paintings from his photos when he's coming home because very often I create my pitures in photoshop instead of out in the field. I know pretty well that my photos are not perfect, but this is what I have. This site is more like a portpholio where i store my works, but keeps it open so everyone may take a look. An old man has done the best he can.
Unfortunately I don't have time to Write comments on this site. I spend a lot of time writing critiques on two Norwegian photosites and one Swedish
But if U feel for give me a message about a photo U like or wanna give tips for changing so go ahead do it.
I no longer translate the title of a picture to english, but keep the original that's mostly Norwegian, but sometimes I use English too.
