Hi! My husband is writing a journal entry as an assignment for his college class about his decendants from Norway and we found your site and have enjoyed your pictures very much.

We have read about Lars Larsan who came to America in the early 1800's in search of freedom of religion and more land to farm, and some of the people on his sloop were from Tinn, Norway.

Could you please email us some lore from Norway. We would enjoy reading it very much.

My husband is Jeff Pybas who is decended from Scandanavia. We don't really know who were his ancestors, but thought the Norwegians were a good place to start searching, too. So, thank you for your time.

Hallo this is Ingrid. I have been reading a little in your notes, and I am nysgjerrig. Liker noen av dine tanker ihvertfall. Håper vi kan treffes om ikke så lenge,--- det er så lenge siden vi var sammen. Kan ikke Oddbjørg og du komme en tur opp til oss i Midtåsveien 18. Å snakke om åndelige ting er noe vi elsker, særlig jeg. Vi har en lengsel, begge to, det er i allefall sikkert. Vi er forskjellige, og det skal vi få lov til å være. Men vi trenger hverandre i denne tiden.
Jeg er hos Heidi og J Sverre nå, og der kom jeg inn på di side. Vi skal hjem i morgen, H. og J.S. skal i bryllupp Bergen.
Vennlig hilsen Ingrid

Thank you for visiting my Hawaii galleries. I find it delightful to visit another country thru someone else's eyes. Your Paris streets gave a me a view of Paris that i had not seen when I visited there several years ago.
Cheers and aloha

Got your message--

First, great galleries! Sometimes I wish I had a G series camera handy... :)

In any case, I find the S1 to be a pretty versatile camera. Things like the 10x image stabilized zoom, manual functions--the things I mentioned on my PBase.

I haven't used a G5 before, I would imagine it has a bit better image quality and flexibility. However, the S1 does come with a host of nice features including auto exposure bracketing and auto focus bracketing. The S1 has many of the same features of the G5 like the shutter speeds, ISO, and so on. I'm not sure how the shooting speed compares with the G5, but the S1 has been known to be a little harder to deal with in terms of low light focusing.

The video features are apparently the best in class, although if you want to do real filming, many suggest you get a digital video camcorder instead. The S1 is good for short clips, but the clips are pretty good quality, the sound is so-so, not directional and subject to wind noise, the video quality is pretty good, and I find it quite convinient that you can zoom while filming (you can't do this in most cameras). Plus the image stabilization also works while filming which is nice. If you do get the S1 for video, I would get a high speed and large (1 gig or larger) compact flash card.

To help you out, I uploaded two video clips I made with the S1:
Make sure you save them to your PC, I'm going to delete them in about a week.

Good luck in making your decision and I hope you have a great trip!

I find your eye for composition very interesting and your appreciation of light is obvious, I especially enjoyed your galleris titled Interiors and The Chest (so creative!). You and the G5 do very well in natural light, such as in this fine example:

You live in a beautiful country with many equally-beautiful subjects, I hope to visit Norway soon!

Keep it up and thanks for your comments over at my gallery.

You were the first one to leave feedback on my gallery. Thanks for that!
I saw some of your photos, and I really like your travel shots. I plan to someday tour around Europe and take 1000s of shots every day.
Keep it up!

See ya
