Note, the long logs on the beach are in fact boats made from about 5 long and very solid logs, tied together and with an outboard motor attached to the back. They lie so low in the water that they are normally washed by waves most of the time.
Yes, there really was nothing to it to take this photo, it is just an everyday scene along this coastline. It bet you, if you took the plane to Bodø a little further north of here, asked around there, they would find you some very interesting stop-overs on your way down the coast here. Going on the local speed boat is just a wonderful, calming, beautiful experience. And every half-hour there is a little port to visit, with local activity- mostly connected to fishing or aquaculture but also to small farming. I grew another 1000 km further north.
Good photo!And good timing.
Hei Odd Helge,
Det er bra noen er virkelig lokalkjente.Tusen takk for info. Mine kunnskaper om garder og bruksnummer og slikt er heller tynne. Jeg har allerede justert tittelen på bildet.
Hei Hans Jørgen. Takk for fin respons! Jeg vet faktisk ikke helt, men har et par teorier: det brennes daglig flere kanskje hundrevis av lik på den andre siden av floden, der bygningene befinner seg. Noen av disse likrestene flyter sikkert i land på sandbanken her på denne siden; dette samler jo flokker av gribber som spiser restene. For hinduene betyr vel det kanskje urenhet (mens det for andre religioner er den foretrukne måten å ta farvel med de døde, slik som hos parsiene i Mumbai. Der stopper mine anelser.
Do you perhaps have this image available in a high(er) resolution? I would like to use it in a photomontage to enter in an architecture competition for a building on that site. So it is for non-commercial use, unless of course we would be so lucky to win the competition. I will send you the resulting photoshop picture at least!
Thank you for your reply.
kind regards, Henk
Merci de la correction. Tu es la première personne qui se soit donné la peine de le mentionner.
As tourists we spend most of our time in cities and/or congested tourist areas. Now, once in a while it is good for our sanity to try to see and understand how real people really live and make a living. India in general is an absolutely outstanding world to see and hopefully also to learn about life. I was grateful for the gentle people I met there, and a bit sad that I cannot show them as they are, with their faces. Ivar.
fascinating world! thank you for sharing!
