Colorful Oslo II

June has really graced us with great weather here in Oslo. For days now it has been warm and sunny. Early this week the temp was close to 30C; it has cooled off a little bit now and today I think it was 23C.

I put on a summer dress this morning, ready to embrace the city. First on my to-do list was to run some errands downtown and I had planned to meet up with my friend Ellen. We stopped by a few stores, bought a few things, walked around time, devoured an icecream each and sat under a tree and played a geography quiz on her phone. After three hours together we parted, she had another meeting.

My yellow Fjellräven backpack was carrying my camera and my 35mm lense and I was ready to go on a little photo walk on my own. With music in my ear (Hurry and Marius Samuelsen) I took the 37 bus to Vålerenga, a place where I used to work for ten years. I walked the streets of Vålerenga a few weeks ago, but then I only had my phone with me and the photos I took only got posted on Instagram. I knew I wanted to come back with my real camera. Today I did.

The streets are filled with colorful houses and it’s hard not to fall in love with all of them. I took a lot of photos and I hope you like these as much as I do.
