Hi Billy, this is the Norwegian Petroleum Museum and it was opened on 20 May 1999. It's really interesting inside, with lots of things for children to do. It also has a great playground outside as well :))

Dear Tonia, many thanks for you kind words. I liked the way that the silver and grey of this building echoed the silver and grey of the sky :))

Hello Amelia. Very interesting photo :-)

Ria Maat on November 29, 2009

Very interesting photo Amelia! The museum looks as if it is built on an oil rig...?

Lovely reflections on your photo! Great work, as usually!!

Friendly greetings from Ria

I have never seen a museum with a lifeboat be3fore, the visiting women and children would be first in the event of a disaster I guess, but whit aboot the gadgies?

Lovely calm water and evening light, the clarity is most attractive.

Thanks for showing and sharing


Amelia Royan on November 29, 2009

Aye Bonnie Lad, I'll be fine then, but I dinnae ken whit a gadgie is. I hope ye're no ane o' them, else ye'll be in the drink ... an' it's freezin' noo!

The evening light is actually at 1.34, or 12.30 GMT. The sun doesn't rise much here at the moment :))

Ca canny noo, Amelia

a word meaning fellow, man, bloke, a male of the human species who is not quite a friend, but is known to be an OK person

The word is adopted from the chinese terminology for a Europian male...Gy chee, it is believed the term was adopted into English language from the Romany but is originally from China

So, 'that Mike, he's a canny gadgie' would mean that I am liked, although not known personally.

And there's nee way aam gaan in yon freezin cald watter!

Thank you dear Ria, the reflections were due to an unusually calm sea. It is meant to symbolise an oil rig, and is probably one of the more interesting museums, with lots of things to see and do both inside and outside :))

Warm greetings, Amelia

Amelia Royan on November 30, 2009

Aye Bonnie Lad - ye're a richt canny gadgie, that's for sure. I really appreciate your comment - I'm always learning new things from my Pano friends :))
