On the Road is a weekday feature spotlighting reader photo submissions. From the exotic to the familiar, whether you’re traveling or in your own backyard, we would love to see the world through your eyes.
On the Road will continue, but it will be forever Alain’s.
Good Morning All,
More from previous submissions. I’ll have two mega-posts this week; as the form is down, I don’t think BillinGlendale will be tomorrow, but I’m not sure. I’ll see what I’ve got stored up!
Have a wonderful day, and enjoy the pictures!
Today, pictures from valued commenter otmar.
This is the third batch of pictures from Oslo.
On the last day I managed to visit Frognerpark and see the sculptures made by Gustav Vigeland. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frogner_Park
As Wikipedia puts it: “Frogner Park contains, in its present centre, the well-known Vigeland installation, a permanent sculpture installation created by Gustav Vigeland between 1924 and 1943.”
Looking at some of the reviews, this has irritated some American tourists, as it basic contains 212 bronze and granite sculptures of naked humans. In order to keep this mostly “save for work”, I tried to make my selection of pictures rather modest.
Bronze statue from the bridge.
The fountain. (regrettably without water due to renovation works)
The wheel of life, on the top of the installation.
View towards the Monolith and the surrounding sculptures.
Closer to the Monolith.
Thank you so much otmar, do send us more when you can.
Travel safely everybody, and do share some stories in the comments, even if you’re joining the conversation late. Many folks confide that they go back and read old threads, one reason these are available on the Quick Links menu.
