Tysnes Pix is a photo blog containing shots from the island community Tysnes on the west-coast of Norway, preferably not the picture-perfect fjords and mountains, elsewhere to be found, but quirky themes, objects and situations – or people in everyday life, far from the festive motifs usually seen, in constitution day snapshots, for instance. I have however put together this compilation of stills (neither photos are mine though):
At its present stage the blog is a private experiment, but I’m still debating whether or not I should invite other contributors likely to adhere to the blog’s ambitions, converting Tysnes Pix to a group blog.
Meanwhile, please enjoy what little it currently has on offer.
Please note that most pictures prior to mid-November 2010 are taken with a 3.2 megapixel Nokia. After that: A 12 megapixel mobile camera (still Nokia, though, the N8). Connecting people™ . Since May 2012: An Apple iPhone 4S, primarily with the 645 Pro camera app – and quick retouches in Snapseed.
Pictures posted in 2010, 2011 and most of 2012 were dimensioned for a different blog theme (and bandwidth considerations), which is why their resolution is way too low for this design (i.e. not due to camera resolution). In other words: The older the posts, the lower the resolution, unfortunately.
I have decided to include videos on rare occasions. They’re images, too, however live.
