In addition to photographing, there is two things I really love; writing and music. Now I’m going to combine all those things and write about the music I discovered and loved in 2016 – both new and old music. When the year ends and a new starts, you see all these lists with ‘the best’ music from that year. Can you really define the best music from 2016? What is best for someone, might be the worst for someone else. These list of ‘best of’ is just one persons taste in music. I read a good article about that, but when you don’t bookmark stuff, it just vanish into the air. So no link from me.
I met my new, old friend Ian in mid November. He put it so well when he said we were new, old friends. The thing is, we’ve known each other for ten years, but never met until now. Ian, who is from Minnesota, US, studied 6 months in Oslo ten years ago and he became friends with an ex-colleague Lars.
There is no secret I love bikes. When ever I’m out photographing and I see a pretty bike, I photograph it.
November usually is dark and this november hasn’t been different. After the snow we had weeks ago, melted because it got a little warmer, it got even darker. The sun hasn’t been very present lately and when it’s dark when you go to work in the morning and when you leave, there isn’t much time to photograph.
It’ a bit strange that I’ve been so hooked on black and white photography l lately. I’m quite a color person, weather it comes to dressing myself (I own pants that are yellow, red, orange, blue, green, purple and black and I have 6 different colored Converse shoes) or interiour (my kitchen cabinets are RED, I have a yellow wall in the livingroom, a blue wall in my bedroom and the inside of my front door is bright green).
My plans got canceled on saturday (I was going shopping with a friend and then wine at my place later with her sleeping over), so suddenly I had nothing to do. What better thing to do than to go on a impromptu photo trip.
In my last post I talked about street photography and how I wanted to do more of that. This time I actually followed through and did what I said I would. There are evidence of me not doing that lots of times in the past. Positive feedback from followers here and on my Insta account made it easier to follow up. I can admit it, it’s no secret, I’m a sucker for positive feedback.
