Bench of the week - have a seat, Mr President.


My bench this week is to honour President Barac Obama, who visited Norway to receive the Nobel Peace Prize yesterday. It has been a huge celebration in Norway, and it continues with a great consert this evening, hosted by Will Smith and his lovely wife, Jada Pinket Smith. A lot of great artists are entertaining. Some people say that it is to early to give the prize to Obama - but Obama didn`t say: "We did it" - he sayd:"We CAN do it" - and this prize is for hope - and what are we without hope??? Congratulation, Mr President! Yes - we CAN do it!

For more benches, please visit Rune at Visual Norway.

Så flott et innlegg! Og ja - hva hadde vi vært uten håp? langt fattigere - og et mye mer fargeløst liv!

Surrey: I can understand your thought... But sometimes it is impossible to avoid war to get peace. If we for example hadn`t fought back Hitler - what would the world have looked like today?

But anyone are alloud to have their own feelings and opinions about any issue :) And as I sayd - I can understand yours.

En kan i alle fal si at DU kan gjøre det - fotografere mener jeg :-)
Dette var en variant jeg satte pris på å se, og "skyggen" som passerer er prikken over i'en

PS Hjertelig velkommen over fjellet - vi skal se om vi ikke kan finne et motiv eller to...

Nydelig bilde Lene! Fantastisk lys! Når det gjelder diskusjonen om fredsprisen (eller "war prize")så skal jeg ikke blande meg inn i den, men sier bare til deg at det var godt svart!
Jeg skulle egentlig bare sjekke om det går buss ned til byen snart, men falt altså for fristelsen å ta en liten "bloggrunde". Planer for dagen er å ha en bilfri lørdagshandel så vi kan kose oss litt også!
Ønsker deg og gemalen en strålende lørdag! Klem fra Irene

Flott.
Både ord og bilder.
Har du/dere tenkt dere vestover. Jeg tolker det kanskje sånn etter kommentaren til Rune. Da må vi lage velkomstkommite :-)

Very interesting-Obama sends 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan, the war in Iraq continues,captured terrorists going to American prisons where they will actively recruit more psychos and he gets a "Peace Prize?!...

This is a great travel blog you have here. I have one myself which I hope to be a top resource for those looking to travel. We have a lot to cover and not that much time to do it. I was wondering if we could exchange links to help spread some traffic around. Please let me know if this is possible.
