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.
