Photoproject – day three

Today has be just as warm as yesterday. The sun is shining and the sky is blue. A shame that I had to work an hour extra, when the weather was so wonderful. But it was the only option. The last days have been very hectic. There has been so much to do; especially since I’ve got vacation next week and have to finish a lot of things before that time!

There were several times I wish I could put myself on a bike, like the one pictured about, and ride away in the sunny weather. Ah! What a bliss that would’ve been. Only one more day now. Only one!

The last hour I worked I had to calm myself down (try to reduce my level of annoyance, haha) with some music by Springsteen. I made myself a playlist on Spotify which contained calm songs like Blood Brother, Secret Garden, Streets of Philladelphia, My Hometown and Jungleland.

It made me happy to think about the camera I had in my purse. Taking photos always makes me happy.

Here are a few other shots I got on my trip home.

Yummy light and bokeh. I love sunlight. This was just a snapshot of the hedge next to the bike I photograhped .

Another diptych. A swing and a bench. I would like to sit on both right now. Be skyhigh with the swing or read in the latest number of the Backstreets (Springsteen fan mag)

Some more flowers in a pot. I never get tired of them. Beautiful flower and matching blue pot!

Flower power

Day two of my photoproject is soon over. It was lovely to leave the office a few mintues past 16.00, after a stressfull day at the office, knowing I was going on the hunt for todays shot.

I walked in the same area as yesterday; Kampen. It’s a lovely area east in Oslo with lots of wodden buildings in lovely colors.  I can walk through that area and take the bus home, a few stops away from the start/end stop where usually take the bus from.

It was a bit windy today, but still quite warm. The sun was shining and it was lovely to walk around hunting down things to photograh. The flower photo above is todays ‘official’ photo.

I also ended up with some other shots.

More flowers. I love daisies. A huge  pot with flowers brightens up a entrence and is most welcome in my eyes. I saw quite a few pots like this and I took a shot of almost everyone!

Lots of yummy white bokeh. I can see this photo in a diptych; with either a blue shot or a green one. Don’t think I have anything that matches yet, but I’ll keep it in mind.

Here is one of the colorful buildings I was talking about. I really like the lines in this one. And the pink color! I’m not a huge fan of pink, but this is cool.

Even though I’m just at day two, I’m really enjoying this photo project. It’s fun and I like that it’s a bit easier than my last one. Summer is a wide theme and I can do so much. And I’ve said tomyself that if I run out of ideas on the summer theme, I can always change it. I can skip any theme and just shoot whatever I want.

But for now, I’m sticking to summer!

Summer in the city

Things were a bit stressfull at the office today. I had to work an hour extra to finish all the things I needed to get done. Phew! It was really lovely to go out in the sun and walk around take some photos for my summer project.

I guess I walked for half an hour all together. Not that much, but better than nothing. The sun was shining and it was quite warm.

This is the first photo in my summer project. I started with a diptych. I’ve called it summer in the city. The pedestrian crossing represents the city and the bench and the sunlight represents the summer.

I really love spending the summer in the countryside, but it’s not so bad spending summer days in the city either. Right now I’m happy I can leave my balcony door open all evening without it being cold in my apartment. I even opened it this morning to get fresh air in. It was lovely!

The city also has flowers. Can you survive without flowers? I think not.

I was put on a big test today. As I walked home I came to this grocerystore. Outside they had a commercial-thingy saying they had icecream on sale. My fave icecream. 10 in a box for only 17 NOK. That is so ridicuoulsly cheap. But I’m on a little icecream / chocolate break right now. So what else could I do than walk away? Let me tell you,  It was hard. Very hard.

Well. I’m here and I’m not dead. So I can survive without icecream! But to take care of my urge for something sweet, I’m gonna eat some banana & milk. Chop up half of a banana, put it in a bowl, add milk and some sugar.
