PhotoHunt - thankful - for full tank...

The theme for this week`s PhotoHunt is thankful. The Norwegian people are pleased and thankful to hear "full tank, please!" We found oil in 1968, and thanks to that Norway today is one of the richest countryes in the world. I am thankful to live in this beautiful country, which is rich of soo much more than the oil.

Vilken komposition och jag gillar verkligen att du hela bilden går i svartvitt utom bensinpumpen som står ut i färg - läckert!

Och självklart tacksam är man för oljan!

Ha en riktigt fin helg!
Och titta gärna in och se vad jag är tacksam för :)

Kram Anna

I love what you've done with the black & white / blue!

Aileni said...

What a great picture - what is its history?
I always thought Norway displayed a great deal more sense than the UK regarding oil.
Ireland could do the same with gas if they ever stop arguing about the pipeline.

Charlotte said...

wow, for ett bilde. Dette falt meg heeelt i smak!!!! kjempe fine farger du har trukket ut!

YTSL said...

Interesting scene. Funny but if not for the non-English words in the picture, I'd think that it looked like a small town out west -- or down south -- in the USA!

The Social Frog said...

Very interesting, I love how it feels!

RJ Flamingo said...

Cool shot and neat sentiment!

Have a great weekend, and stop by if you get the chance...

Maureen Hayes said...

What a fantastic photo, the whole feeling it evokes. I love the use of color and B & W together and the whole composition of the shot. It is also a very interesting take on the thankful theme.

What an absolutely wonderful photo you captured there. And yes being able to keep a full tank of gasoline is something to be very thankful these days.

Thanks for the wonderful share!!

I'll be thankful if the price of fuel is to go down :P
A great take for this week's theme :)

Charlotte said...

Ja, det er sant :) det stedet der hadde passet utmerket til bryllupsbildeserien vår :) Fantastik at noen virkelig har satt i sammen dette her. Vi har noe lignende på nøtterøy. Der det er bygget opp en gammel BP stasjon. Innmari stilig den stasjonen også!

Mudhooks said...

PS... Thought you might be interested... (re the Mobile "flying red horse" logo)...

Also, John Gorka (a very favorite musician of mine) wrote a lovely song called "Flying Red Horse" about the Mobile horse leaping free of its sign and roaming the land... It is a beautiful song.

The video here has John Gorka talking about his music and then he sings the song... It is just lovely...

Marie said...

Stileg!!!

Har sett gjennom dei siste bilda dine. FANTASTISK!
Du har auge for dei gode motiva ser eg!

Klem :)

TorAa said...

Gold Medal for you on this weeks Photo Hunt.
It's really fantastic - - -
But I'm affraid the english spoken people around this tiny Globe do not understand your "word-playing".

In Norwegian:
Fantastisk bilde og preparering.
Mitt er også i sort og hvitt denne uke, men jeg har ikke programvare installert til å fremheve eller det motsatte.

For meg er du en artist (jeg kjenner deg jo ikke, så kanskje er du det)

Ha en flott søndag

diXymiss said...

Fantastic composition ~ love the color effects. A "full tank" is indeed something to be thankful for, as is your beautiful country.

TorAa said...

Takk for meget hyggelig kommentar.

Jeg ser du liker natur.
Og vet du hva: Vi bor på Hurum-landet fra ca 1. mai til første uke av oktober. Her har vi kano, som vi bruker på innsjøene på halvøya, vi har druer i hagen + +.
Med andre ord, mange utsøkte fotoobjekter. Doh har jeg kun en D60. Men også en llle en, som jeg kan ta med ned under vannet.

Skriv, hvis du vil. e-posten finner du på min blog-profil

PS. Min morfar var fra Drammen. Hurra.

Alice Audrey said...

Fantastic shot!

Thanks for checking in on Jack and Jill.

Tammy said...

Great photo! Thanks for stopping by my PH entry!

candi said...

Beautiful take and shot.
Thanks for visiting mine:)

Tarheel Rambler said...

I really like the selective color in this image. I believe this is probably the most creative PhotoHunt interpretation I've seen today.

julie said...

Lovely photos and yes, we have to appreciate the things that we have while we have these and not when we don't have these anymore.

Happy Sunday and thanks for the wonderful photos you have been sharing in your blog :)

KISSEDALOTATOADS said...

So you are actually very "TANK-ful" for that full tank,... lol. Great post. I posted late, come on by.

Garden Angel said...

Kuuuuuuuult!
Dette bildet var bare knæsjt Lene!!!
Utrolig stilig å bare beholde pumpa i farger!
Også var det noe med at de fargene gjorde seg bare så bra til det sort/hvite og de gamle tingene;)
Superbra!
Min bedre halvdel skulle engang lære meg hvordan jeg beholdt fargen på en ting og sort/hvitt på alt annet...men det var noe med tålmodigheten min, som har gjort at jeg ikke har satt meg inn i dette enda...hehe
Flirer:))
Må skjerpe meg....for dette er jo gøy!

Duuuu.....bare pass deg så jeg ikke tar deg på ordet;) hihi
Spørs om det ikke hadde blitt to blåfrosne rumper som satt på den benken.
Kunne tenkt meg litt mindre snø på benken først, før skravlestund med boller og kakao;)

Men juhuuu....det er første mars!
Snart er våren her:)
Og da....!

Deilig med frihelg her også!
Skal i bursdag til ene tanteungen idag da, men det er jo bare kos!
Ha en fortsatt fin helg min venn!

Liz said...

What a great old garage. How do you do that clever colour stuff?!

Jientje said...

Very well done!! I love this picture!!

Dragonstar said...

What a wonderfully old-fashioned picture! I love your sentiment as well. Your country is obviously very beautiful, and well worth your feelings of thankfulness.

VALKYRIEN said...

Et flott bilde som alltid! Du har virkelig blikk for dette med motiv!

Derfor har jeg plukket ut bl.a. deg til en sånn "award" du vet - som jeg fikk av en annen. Vet ikke hvordan du ser på slikt - og det gjør ingenting om du ikke nevner det på bloggen. Men - den kan i allefall hentes på bloggen min - og sier noe om at mine visitter på bloggen din alltid er en spennende og inspirerende opplevelse for meg!

Patricia said...

Wow!!!! That is a very cool photo! Thanks!

jam said...

Haha, you really should feel really thankful of living in such a beautiful country as Norway!

Heart of Rachel said...

What a great photo! I like how the gas pump is emphasized.

It's a blessing to live in a beautiful and rich country.

Annie said...

Wow, that is so beautiful! Thanks for visiting mine and have a great week.

Tranquility said...

What a neat photo! I love all the classic items with the 'like' hand coloring. Very pretty.

mama meji said...
