Autumn, a rainfull saturday

Yesterday I babysat my two nephews at my sisters house. My sister was working late and my brother in-law was having dinner with some colleagues. I decided to stay the night, since they would be home late and getting home from their house is a bit of a hassle late at night. My sister was going back to work today and I could ride with her back to Oslo. Very practical. Before we left my brother in-law, Geir, and one my nephews, Emil, went to get groceries. They was late because first Geir forgot his wallet and when they came back to the grocerystore to pay, he had trouble with both is creditcards.

We were a bit late so my sister couldn’t drive me all the way home. That was ok because I needed to stop by the grocerystore to get some dinner. She dropped me off near the grocerystore and I went in a bought a bag full of groceries. It was raining outside and I was carrying my big Addidas bag, the grocerybag and a purse. I also had my umbrella. It didn’t stop me from thinking I needed to pop out my camera and take a photo of this pedestrian crossing covered in leafs.

First I took a few photos of that, then I turned around and photographed something else. One thing lead to another and suddenly I had a mini photowalk. The rain was pouring down and my hands were tied, but I couldn’t help myself. It was so much fun and I saw things to photograph where ever I turned. I took a lot of photos, but didn’t walk very far. All the photos were taken on my way home, within 300 meter ish.

The photos was taken with my trusted 50 mm lense. This time all my photos taken with f/1.4. You get so much yummy bokeh when you shoot like that.

I love when something like this happen out of nowhere. If I hadn’t needed grocerie and we hadn’t been late, Hanne would’ve driven me all the way home and none of these photos would’ve been taken. I’m happy I didn’t give in because of the rain, but stayed outside photographing.

  1. So beautiful! I love fall/rain photos, I have taken many myself. Yours are much better; though, and I really like that you chose “yummy” to describe the effect. Now I want to familiarize myself with film even more ^-^

      Thank you! :) I use the word yummy to describe a lot and I often use it to describe bokeh in photos. Bokeh IS very yummy ;)
