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.

  14. 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.
