Moss, Norway

Moss is a medium size Norwegian town, with just about 30 000 inhabitants. Moss is situated 60 km south of Oslo, and many of its citizens commute daily back and forth to the Norwegian capitol. Moss used to be full of industry, but there's not much left now. The architecture isn't much to brag about, which makes it even more challenging to get the right and interesting captures.

Anyways, here's some of my pics form my home town.

Hope you enjoy!

#4 - Not everything is well kept. The graffiti "SPY" means vomit in Norwegian, and may be a reference to the color used on this shed.

#5 - Random building.

#6 - In the background one can se the final remnants of the paper mill that gave Moss it's infamous smell. The inhabitants used to say it was the smell of money.

#7 - Moss has a major ferry connection, and a fairly large harbor. (Norwegian scale, of course) The statue is called "the Norwegian Lady" and has a sister in Virginia Beach, US.
