Yesterday I went on a new photo trip. I went with my photographer friend Ellen again. We did like last time, picked a place randomly. This time we used a map. We had to take a bus and on our way to the starting point of our trip, we talked so much that we missed it. We ended up a few stops further, but that didn’t really matter. We don’t really know what to expect when we go on these trips. Since we try to explore places we’ve never been at, we don’t know what there is to photograph there.
Yesterday we started our trip in Nydalen; a place with lots of apartments and some places that still are under construction. We walked in an area that is a bit far from the city center. That meant not much stores, restaurants, cafes or people. With the lack of these things, I quite early found out that I was going to look for doors. Even though I found a lot of doors, I also managed to photograph other things.
I will devote this post to all the different things I saw yesterday and show you the doors another time.
The margarine factory. Use to be a factory, but is now rebuilt to be a huge daycare center. I was a little bit annoyed that the car was in the way of a great photo. But when the car was there, I’m pleased it was yellow at least.
Bislett Stadium was built for the Olympics in Oslo in 1952. The statue in the second photo is of Hjalmar ‘Hjallis’ Andersen. He was a speed skater who won tree gold medals in the Olympics in Oslo in ’52.
