I went on a impulse photo trip this afternoon. I almost always carry my camera with me. I brought it today because I felt it was time take it for a walk. When I left work, I really had other plans. But they got changed and I ended up on a small photo trip. And I got to use my wide angle again; I haven’t used it in quite some time.
This building has an interesting history. It was a restaurant here in the 1920’s and it was busy, very busy. It closed at some point and was abandoned for a long time. Some years ago I guy bought it, restored it and turned it into a restaurant again. A great thing to do. It’s very expensive to eat there, but you can just go there for the view. It’s a great place to see Oslo from.
Some more of those island. This is taken some to the right of the photo above. Sunny and warm day. I’m pretty sure it would’ve been lovely to sit on deck in one of the boats cruising the fjords today.
A bit to the right we got this view. The tall buildings to the right in the photo; they are called the barcode. And that’s because when they’re all lined up they look like a barecode. Obviosly. Some hate the, say they block the view to the fjord. I like them.
To the left: people are sitting outside eating. The restaurant have area outside where you can drink and eat some. It’s cheaper than inside. To the right: people checking out the view. Some with binoculars, some with their eyes only.
I’m going back to this place some time soon I hope. There is a cafe close by I want to visit. And there is a forrest with a road through it closeby too. I want to walk in that city forrest (that it’s called) and have a snack at that restaurant. It says it has great view. My friend Ellen and I have talked about going there, but it has rained every time we’ve planned it. This weekend it’s gonna rain big, fat cats and dogs (the amount we normall get in a month will pour down in just two days they say), so no trip. But some day soon!
I’m babysitting my nephew on saturday. Expect some photos to come; either here or on my flickr account.
