Vintage gas station at Norwegian Museum of Cultural History

Norsk Folkemuseum Norwegian Museum of Cultural History gas station vw bug

Gas station relocated from outside Wessels gate 15 to Norsk Folkemuseum

My random photo of the day was this pic. This gas station and VW Beetle don’t look that old to me, but perhaps they look ancient to a younger generation. Actually, this was one of the newer items at Norsk Folkemuseum. Most structures in this open-air museum were much more than 100-years old. There is also a Stave Church at Norsk Folkemuseum which I need to post a photo of soon.

Me at Holmenkollbakken

Al @ Holmenkollbakken (Oslo, Norway’s ski jump)

It’s fairly rare that I appear in a photograph. Usually I’m the one on the other side of the camera. However, when I was (alone) at the top of the Oslo Ski Jump two summers ago a couple came up the elevator and asked me to take their photo. I did, and then they insisted that they take mine as well. This was the result.
