  2. Difficult to pick a favorite today, these pictures are all peculiar in a way or another. Great work, nice place, lovely details!

  3. Lots of nice murals! I guess they want to make sure everyone know what time is it. I really like that first clock.

  4. Wow! L'horloge est magnifique!
    Et l'architecture est quelque chose qu'on n'a pas l'habitude de voir par ici!
    Merci, chère Léia, pour cette balade en pays nordique;o)

  5. Lugar interessante, muitas coisas pra ver e decifrar… acho que o Prof. Langdon iria adorar aquele relogio com os simbolos do zodiaco.

  6. So nice to see some more modern buildings that are carrying on the tradition of decorating the interiors. The statue has me curious. Is it a swan doing battle with something? Please forgive my ignorance. xxoo

  7. Clocks and carrilons… would make a great “C-Day” entry! My daughter attended a college with a carrilon across a small lake… loved the sound

    Your tour was wonderful… I love those ceilings, dressing up a simple building.

  8. I've never seen anything like this! Our city halls are general dungeon-like with narrow halls and lots of little cubbyholes where people toil away unhappily carrying out boring bureaucratic tasks.

    This is love! What beauty and grandeur. It looks more like some kind of elegant castle. I also like very much the way you've composed the photos and the way you treated that first one!

    So sorry you fell…so glad that you didn't break anything! I'm tripping over my own feet all the time but I'm a lot older than you!

    Please be careful! 🙂

  10. Many wonderful sights. I particularly love the clock, with its gold astronomical signs. I have never been to Oslo, nor heard or seen much about it.

  11. Fabulous! I don't know if we'll ever get there – maybe we will, my husband is always surprising me – but it's great to see your wonderful photos! Thanks!

  12. Je suis passée devant souvent mais je ne suis jamais entrée. Maintenant, je m'en mords les doigts (tu connais cette expression Léia ?) parce que je m'aperçois que j'aurais du prendre le temps de m'y arrêter… Heureusement qu'avec ces photos, il y a une séance de rattrapage !
