Picture of the day: A little piece of middle ages history

I am still on the west coast of Norway visiting my parents, and of course I have to venture out trying to get some shots. Mybe the most spectacular pieces of history around these parts is this old wooden church (Holdhus gamle kirke), that dates all the way back to 1306. Still looks impressive after all these years.

Day at the museum …. (Tretyakov)

Tretyakov museum in Moscow is also know as the National Museum Of Fine Art, and it is amazing.

Here are a small examples of pictures taken during my day at the museum. It show some pictures, statues and the building it self. Since I am not skilled in the science and history of art. I let my pictures tell the story.
