Default Little red utility sheds

Visited a fishing harbour nearby the other day. It was on a sunday and all the fishingboats were in. Walking along the pier I noticed for every boat tied up, there was a utility shed og small hut for their gear just across their berth. Such loverly and old wooden structures, simple but charming in all their simplicity, presenting themselfes standing in the autumn-sun in the clear crisp air.


Utility-Sheds, where the fishermen stored their gear, such as nets, trawles, lobster-pots and other stuff.



Walking all the way down that long pier I noticed a gap in the row of sheds and some other red houses, further up the hill, all connected together with these oh so ugly power-lines.

It's not much of a photo, but I fell for that strange sight of all those red houses (shed, really...) with that pole and all these powerlines being the centre of attention. Almost a surrealistic experience.

All pictures taken with my Panasonic FZ-28 P&S!

I see what you mean about being attracted to these neat buildings! I really like those three sheds in the background in the second photo, I can see many photo possibilities with them if you return here. Nice work as always!

Great shots! For me, these red houses/sheds are so typically for norway (maybe I'm wrong, but that's my belief ) and you again shot two beautiful pictures of some of them!

I like the colours of the first one and the three sheds in the background of the second one - maybe you can shoot some nice pics from them some time!

The only person I know that can make powerlines be a part of a beautiful photography is Walter.

To Gary, Bob, maggo85, vvcarpio and Ordo!

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment and your kind words.

Yes, this particular red-color is one of the most used colors on Norwegian houses. 90% of all houses, outside of the city-limits are built of wood and therefor have to be painted. So you will see a lot of houses with this particular color in Norway.

As for the powerlines and that pole in the middle - it does something to the picture. For the first time I condone power-lines in one of my photos.

Thank's Caryl - it obvious helped a lot that those sheds had an almost new paintcoat on as well....
