Our holiday in 2020 took us to the west coast of Norway, called Vest-landet to us Norwegians. After we went to Lindesnes Fyr, we drove to a city called Stavanger. I took some photos on the first day of our stay, using my trusty Fujifilm X100f.
I’ve got nothing profound to say, so let’s just enjoy some photos 🙂
If you want to see more photos from this area, look for #fargegaten on Instagram.
As you can see from the images below, the city wasn’t exactly overrun with tourists. We came rather early in the summer and the Covid-19 pandemic probably had something to do with it as well.
Some of the buildings were painted in strong, bold colors. It reminded me of our visit to Malaga last year.
Stavanger also has a part of the city called the Old Town. It’s mostly just one street, but it’s very nice, with lots of flowers.
When leaving Old Town I switched to the X-T3 with the 18-135mm lens. We went into the park and saw two kids feeding peas to pigeons. At one point, the pigeons became extra eager to get hold of the peas and the kid got more than he bargained for 😉
I’m especially happy with the photo below where some of the pigeons flew towards me, making the photo more dynamic and dramatic.
All in all, Stavanger was a very nice city, especially #fargegaten, with bars and restaurants in lots of colors and flowers. Recommend a visit if your in the area.
