The brochures are full of romantic imagery. Awesome natural vistas.
But suppose you actually wanted to visit Sandnessjøen, Norway (population approximately 6,000).
You’d arrive by ferry or by crossing the most beautiful bridge in Norway (according to a poll of a technical weekly’s readers). These are some of the things you might see.
A frequent sight: moose shit. Alsten, the island on which Sandnessjøen sits, has a very high concentration of moose. During the fall and winter, especially during the hunting season, you’ll see them wandering the streets.
Sandnessjøen is part of the region called “Helgeland”, and in his infinite wit, a local photographer has published a book called “Elgeland” (moose land).
If you enter town by the bridge, you drive past a large statue of a moose looming above the road.
So-called art photography? I’m not going to tell you what I think of art photography.
I’m the one who’s been with the Freemasons the longest… Oh, and with Lions, too.
