Crossing the Hardanger Bridge

The Hardanger bridge, inaugurated in August 2013, spans the Hardanger fjord, between Bu on the south side and Vallavik on the north side. The bridge made it possible to travel for the first time in history from Oslo to Bergen by car without any ferry crossing. It cost some 2.3 billion kroner (nearly 400 million US$ at the time of completion). The bridge is 1,380 metres (4,530 ft) long, slightly longer than the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, with a main span of 1,310 metres (4,300 ft). It has two lanes for cars and one for bicycles and pedestrians.

Celebrating a new and much needed coat of paint!
Designed by the Norwegian architect Peter Andreas Blix (1891). Western Norway once had many of these extravagantly romantic hotels, mostly from the late 1800s. Some were victims of savage modernization in the 1960s, some burned down. Many of those still standing struggle to stay on the right side of the shabby-chic divide.

Tile work at the Prince Street subway station, New York.
 ”The 2004 artwork, Carrying On, is by Janet Zweig. It uses water jet-cut steel, marble, and slate to create a mural along the entire length (totaling 1,200 feet) of both platforms. The 194 different frames in this frieze detail contain images of New Yorkers from all walks of life. As the title suggests, almost all of the images involve carrying something” (Wikipedia).
