Stavanger is a picturesque city in Norway, with its famous Gamle Stavanger, and also its beautiful cathedral. It is also very close to the famous Pulpit Rock.
Stavanger is the fourth largest city in Norway. It was the canning capital of Norway.
The old Stavanger (Gamle Stavanger) is a must-see when you are in the city. It’s just next to the city center. It is a collection of white wooden houses built in the 18th and 19th centuries. It is believed to be Europe’s largest collection of wooden buildings. They are mostly privately-owned, are very well-preserved, and are ideal for pictures.
The Stavanger Cathedral is also worth a visit. Being built around 1125, it is the oldest cathedral in Norway. It is in Romanesque style, with later Gothic additions due to a fire in 1272.
To get a good view of the city, go to Valbergtårnet, which is a watch tower. It is now a museum telling the history of the watchmen of Stavanger. It is also ideal for getting a panoramic view of the city.
The city center is also very good for taking a stroll. There are lots of seagulls.
If you have extra time in Stavanger, go to Pulpit Rock. It is a 600m vertical cliff that sits above the Lysefjord and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the region.

Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.

Marcus Selmer was the first daguerreotype photographer of Bergen, Norway. He was up-to-date with new technologies and even shifted to wet plate collodion process, a more practical alternative to daguerreotypes. In the 1850s, he also made a series of portraits highlighting folk costumes, from floor-grazing bunad dresses to men’s mink coats. The prints were sold to tourists as a remembrance of traditional Norwegian culture.
