Thank you Joe for the kind words, and thoughts about photographing strangers! Disappointing to hear that the fear will probably never go away. I guess I'll have to learn to live with it then... He he. Real street photography is interesting and very rewarding, but since the laws are relatively strict here in Norway (you can photograph anyone in a public place, but you can't use the photos without permission (there are some exceptions, such as parades, larger groups of people etc.)) I have more or less given up such photography, and ask first.
Very nice night photo! It would have been interesting to see a horizontal version, but you probably chose right when making it vertical.
Yes, there are some abandoned houses and other things here, but I saw a lot more when we visited northwestern USA a few years ago. I remember being frustrated that we only had time to stop at a few of the places. Overall Trondheim is too nice and cozy for my photographic taste , but there still are some pockets of derelict and weathered stuff left. Here is a building I have seen many times (usually in difficult backlit situations) and finally I managed to photograph it:
