More spring flowers, no bee on these ones.
It’s springtime in Canada, and the bees are out. Lots of pics to follow in the weeks to come, methinks. I like taking pictures of flowers.
- Nikon D70, Nikkor 18-70mm at 70mm, 1/1600 sec at f/4.5, ISO 200, Skylight filter
- 1/1600 really was a little optimistic, I brightened it a bit.
Newsflash :P I know, I don’t use my website for that much. I realise a lot of people prolly don’t know what’s going on in my life (that is, if anyone actually care).
Anyway, I was accepted to do a master’s degree in Global Governance at the University of Waterloo (Ontario, not Belgium :P). I haven’t decided whether I should accept yet. We’ll see whether I’m accepted in Toronto, but I still like the Waterloo programme better I think. Stay tuned.
Here’s the programme website: http://globalgovernance.uwaterloo.ca/
I took this panorama at the top of the Decew Falls (we have a hydroelectric power plant on campus). Why on Earth have they fenced in this wonderful view? Everywhere else it’s just impossible to get a clear view because of trees.
This is a part that was left out of SICKO because it would just sound too otherworldly….that’s right, because people won’t believe it….
Is Norway truly that good? It’s not utopia. Having lived in Canada and visited many countries, I know every place has its good sides and its bad sides. Norway is no exception. And it may not sound completely fair to know that we’ve accomplished all this with oil revenue. The party has been free, but it won’t last forever.
Sorry, I never seem to get done, do I?
This time I’m trying to integreate a Lightbox into the photoalbums, and it hasn’t been going very well. Lightbox = more eyecandy and shorter load time for each individual picture. I’m determined to get it to work though.
In case everything is messed up when you get here, please come back later, hopefully it’ll work then.
Another fall picture from Brock.
Picture of the Schmon Tower, the main landmark on campus.
This part of campus is called the Pond Inlet, a nice little oasis.
This is where my parents live in Hønefoss, Norway. I’ve been living there also, but only in the summer holidays after I started studying in Canada.
I shot some pictures the wedding of a couple of friends of mine last year. You can see the full gallery from which this picture is taken by going here. This is obviously the bride’s bouquet, where every hue but red has been desaturated.
