Photographer's Note

Looking into the harbour in Bergen, south Norway, I noticed these colorful ripples and couldn't help comparing them to Jackson Pollock's 'Blue Poles'. This was a controversial purchase by the Australian Art Gallery in 1973 & which many taxpayers complained was a waste of money. ($1.3 million Au) Today it is worth $20 - 100 million. The abstract expressionism style does not appeal to everyone. It was first used in Germany in 1919 and later debuted in the US in 1946. Personally I am ambivalent. I neither love it, nor loathe it. Bergen is of course a major fishing harbor and port in south Norway. The tyres (tires) at the back are to prevent boats smashing against the wall in rough weather.
