Photographer's Note

This is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Norway - Bryggen. The houses were originally built as a port during the time of the the Hanseatic League. It became one of the biggest ports in Northern Europe - at least in Scandinavia, and they received fishes from especially the Northern Norway. They have been the victim for some fires, but has been rebuilt every time. Today, one can walk in between the buildings. They are well preserved. The museum has actually preserved the working conditions with cold rooms where one can smell fish. Many of the buildings have souvenirs and other shops.

This picture was taken a cold day in the end of November. It was a market outside, "Farmer's market", which sold fruits and vegetables.
