JUST FOR A CHANGE OF PACE.....

Today's photos were taken last year when we were in Norway, June 2014.


Gregg is the photographer.  We were at the Vigeland Museum in Oslo, and after being inside for a considerable time we walked around the building.  We were intrigued by the designs in the walls.



The stone mason must have been a true artist.

it took a talented mason to do that brickwork, I agree. I too love your header photo, great capture.

Wonderful masonry on this building, Denise. I would imagine the museum inside was wonderful as well. I love to tour museums all over the states and overseas.

The brick work is interesting. We have stringers and headers in the Colonial brickwork here in Virginia.
Did you know the origin of the log cabin is Norwegian? The early Norwegian settlers brought it to America.

I love architecture.

William Kendall said...

The architecture, particularly those finer details, really appeals to me!

~Ludwig Mies van der Rohe~---I LOVe this quote. You come up with so many things I have never heard...usually in poems.

I love this building and enjoyed seeing around this place.
