Nothing can cure the soul but the senses, just as nothing can cure the senses but the soul.

King Oscar II Chapel (Norwegian: Kong Oscar IIs kapell) is a chapel in Sør-Varanger Municipality in Finnmark county, Norway. It is located in the village of Grense Jakobselv. The chapel is part of the Sør-Varanger parish in the Varanger deanery in the Diocese of Nord-Hålogaland. This stone chapel was built in 1869 on the border with Russia. The chapel was designed by Jacob Wilhelm Nordan and it seats about 72 people.

 

History

In 1851, the Norwegian settlement in the Grense Jakobselv area had a strong desire to have its own chapel. However, it was politics that would accelerate the work of construction. In 1826, the demarcation of the Russia-Norway border was completed. However, there were still disagreements between the Norwegian authorities and Russian fishermen on the national border (the Jakobselva river) after that time. After reporting several harsh confrontations between Norwegian and Russian fishermen, the county Governor of Finnmark wanted to let a naval ship from the Royal Norwegian Navy to undertake fisheries surveillance during the months with the heaviest fishing. The Interior Department wanted an independent investigation of the circumstances and sent Lieutenant Commander Heyerdahl north to familiarize themselves with the case. Heyerdahl did not share the county Governor's views on which solution. He proposed instead to erect a chapel at Grense Jakobselv. A Lutheran chapel would be an indisputable boundary marking, such as the Russian Orthodox chapel in Boris Gleb that had been used for border demarcation in 1826. In 1865 it was decided to build a chapel and parsonage on the "border". In the summer of 1869, the new chapel was built and on 26 September the same year, the chapel was consecrated by Bishop Waldemar Hvoslef.

 

Name

In 1873, King Oscar II visited the chapel, and to commemorate this visit, he bestowed this chapel with a marble slab with the bilingual inscriptions: Kong Oscar II hørte Guds ord her den 4de Juli 1873 (Norwegian language) and Gonagas Oscar II gulai Ibmel sane dobe dam 4 ad Juli 1873 (Northern Sami language) which means "King Oscar II heard the word of God here July 4th, 1873". At the same time, he expressed a desire to name the chapel after him, and so the members of the congregation made a name plate for him that still hangs over the door.

It was a case of dawn to dusk photography with my mate Oscar Ip, I already started early by waking up at 5.00am to capture the Olympic Torch and Sir Bobby Charlton, then doing the rounds at Salford Quays and doing some long exposure work and then making a last minute.com decision to forget the England game and head towards Liverpool instead to go and do a sunset shot! So it was time to revisit New Brighton!

Went outside this this dreadful New York heat today to give some the prom pictures to my friend. I also had lunch with Eric and I went home after to grab my camera and drop off my laptop only to head over to Oscar's place. We just hung around, played some ball in his back yard, which is breaking and weeds are taking over haha. We also chilled on the roof which was pretty cool and I came home after that. I decided to take a look at what was wrong with my bmx and I fixed it. I took it out for a spin and indeed I did fixed it, now it just needs some new tires and grips haha. Oh and when I came home from Oscar's I saw this fella here on my windowsill and it jumped onto a branch while i was reaching to grab my camera.

Oscar Ribeiro de Almeida Niemeyer Soares Filho (December 15, 1907 – December 5, 2012), Brazilian architect. Mostly known for the civic buildings in Brazil's capital Brasilia and for his co-design of the UN-headquarters in New York. The Eye is the Oscar Niemeyer Museum (NovoMuseu). It is located in Curitiba/Paraná/Brazil.

 

The base of the building is a bright yellow and it contrasted nicely with the blue sky, but it is way more dramatic in b/w.

 

Thanks for stopping by and having a look or possibly commenting/faving/inviting. Always very much appreciated. You all have a wonderful Sunday.

Delmonico's is the name of various New York City restaurants of varying duration, quality, and fame.

The original and most famous was operated by the Delmonico family at 2 South William Street in Lower Manhattan, during the 19th and early 20th centuries, when it gained a reputation as one of the nation's top fine dining establishments. The birthplace of the widely imitated Delmonico steak, the restaurant is credited with being the first American restaurant to allow patrons to order from a menu à la carte, as opposed to table d'hôte. It is also claimed to be the first to employ a separate wine list.

The family also opened other restaurants under the name, operating up to four at a time and ultimately totaling 10 establishments by the time it departed the business in 1923.

In 1927, restaurateur Oscar Tucci purchased the entire 70,000 square foot building at 56 Beaver Street. First opening a speakeasy, in 1933, after the repeal of Prohibition, he opened Oscar's Delmonico's. Oscar's Delmonico's was open through 1977. Other Delmonico's have operated in the space from 1981 to 1992 and since 1998.

Lee Oscar Lawrie (October 16, 1877 – January 23, 1963) was one of the United States' foremost architectural sculptors and a key figure in the American art scene preceding World War II. Over his long career of more than 300 commissions Lawrie's style evolved through Modern Gothic, to Beaux-Arts Classicism and finally into Moderne or Art Deco. His work includes the details on the Nebraska State Capitol building in Lincoln, Nebraska and some of the architectural sculpture and, his most prominent work, the free-standing bronze Atlas (installed 1937) at New York City's Rockefeller Center.

===============================

 

In Greek mythology, Atlas was the primordial Titan who supported the heavens from the ranges now called Atlas. Atlas was the son of the Titan Iapetus and the Oceanid Asia or Klyméne

 

"Now Iapetus took to wife the neat-ankled maid Clymene, daughter of Ocean, and went up with her into one bed. And she bare him a stout-hearted son, Atlas: also she bare very glorious Menoetius and clever Prometheus, full of various wiles, and scatter-brained Epimetheus."

 

Hyginus emphasises the primordial nature of Atlas by making him the son of Aether and Gaia. In contexts where a Titan and a Titaness are assigned each of the seven planetary powers, Atlas is paired with Phoebe and governs the moon. He had three brothers — Prometheus, Epimetheus and Menoetius.

Days after getting my 50mm Tom, Katy and I went out and tried it out with some flour photos. There are a few more photos up on here from that day (back in July), but I'd never uploaded this until now. There's something about it that I've always loved.

the new year celebration continues...

He ain't heavy, he's my brother. :D

 

Oscar has already gone to his new home where he is anxiously waiting for Ludwig to join him.

  

Oscar and Dexter, my 2 favourite mini people. I thought Id ran all the major emotions in life by now but becoming a granddad has given me a whole new outlook

Oh, I will miss the little guy! His new owner stopped by and took him home with him. I am very excited about this owner, who has owned several cats before and currently has another cat named Jim. It is someone I know and see fairly regularly - my plumber! So hopefully I will be able to get regular updates.

 

I do have a few more pictures of Oscar that I just have to share, but not today, as I am way behind on my commenting, but it will give you something to look forward to.

The brother of the girl behind

UK and US, "Britain and America . . . two great nations divided by the same language," observed once Sir Winston Churchill. Similarly, Oscar Wilde elaborated, "We have really everything in common with America nowadays, except, of course, language." Yes, both of them were joking about our language differences, in reality only minor and insignificant, between the British English and American English.

 

American take on the same has never been so brilliant as in 1955 Meeting the Queen episode of the famous "I Love Lucy Show." Lucy and Ethel, standing in front of the Buckingham Palace, are trying unsuccessfully to understand Cockney accent of a mumbly Londoner. Ethel, "Sir, you have to pardon us, we're Americans. We don't understand English!" Lucy, "Could you perhaps talk just a bit slower?"

 

A good news for all Englishmen and New Englanders: No other speech in the USA is as close to British English as the New England's American English. You are going to "Pa[r]k the ca[r] in Ha[r]va[r]d Ya[r]d" only in Massachusetts! And now, after we have established the common ground, the English language, between England and New England, we may move to more important issues, such as . . . photography!
