Thoughts of a self-conscious / awkward photographer

I am an awkward photographer.

I love taking photos. I’m certainly not a professional, but it’s something I enjoy doing and am passionate about. Especially while I’m travelling, I’ll never be seen without my camera.

While most cities we visited in Norway seemed rather quiet, Bergen was rather vibrant with activities during our stay. From the outdoor fish market, the alleyways at Bryggen, to exploring the culture and history at the many museums, Bergen has plenty to offer.
