In the north of Norway, we have an expression that describes the special light that occurs during the polar night season. “Blåtime”, directly translated “the blue hour”. Today it was breathtaking!
Dusk has descended on our arctic paradise (1:00 pm).
November 1st arrived with a gift – Everything is clothed in white, fluffy snow!
The removing of my large shoe mosaic in the North Cape, with the purpose of restoring it, has brought back so many memories. Here is a recap of the process, via photos. And if you were wondering, 1,200 shoes is A LOT of shoes!
It is inspiring to look back on the project, from when the wild idea struck, and through the journey that followed. May you never look at an old, grubby shoe the same!
The architectural structure built to house the Sealing Vessel, MS Polstjerna, celebrates the arctic light, casting geometric shadows on the frosted landscape.
The building has been home to the MS Polstjerna since 2005. This Sealing Vessel was built in 1949 and sailed 33 hunting voyages, between 1949 and 1981.
It is a beautiful combination of curves, angles, metal and walls of glass windows.
The Exhibition is under renovation in 2019, but is scheduled to re-open next year.
I am looking forward walking through those doors, but for now, peeking through the windows will have to do.
