Today I went on a phototrip with Ellen like I told I would in my last post. We met downtown at noone. Then we took the bus to a part of Oslo called Sagene on the east side. It’s a part of Oslo we haven’t explored that much, so we thought it would be a good idea to go there.
The first thing we see as we’re about to get off the buss, is a house with a wall covered with rims. Very odd, but also very cool. I would’ve loved to ask the guy behind the wall (I assume it’s a guy’s work) about his facination about rims.
The sun was shining and it was a great day for a photowalk. The air was warm and
Mister and Ms. Retro. Cute sign. We didn’t into that store. Looking at the sign, I wish we had. But we did visit some great store; one called Detaljer (details) which had lots of pretty things like candle holders, napkins, vases, pretty tin boxes etc and a store called. Ruth66.
A peek inside Ruth66; a store with all sorts of things from the 50’s and 60’s. Very retro and kitchy. It was awesome! Just the name of the store is awesome. So funny to call a store Ruth66 (reminds of the famous routh 66)! Who doesn’t want to have a hamburger telephone like you see in this photo? Or that napkin holder taken straight out of a 50’s diner? We are def. going back to that store with our wallet full of money!
The last photo taken while Ellen and I were together. We had been walking for more than 2 and a half hour. My feet hurt. So did my lower back. Ellen went home and I stayed downtown. Even though I was tired, I didn’t wanna go home yet. I felt I hadn’t taken enough photos. And the sun was still shining and the weather was still great, so it felt wrong to take the bus home quite yet.
So I started to walk around, trying to find new gems to photograph. I ended up walking for at least one and a half hour more and took some more photos. Those I would have to wait to post or this blog post will be too long.
Stay tuned for the rest of the photos.
