Lofoten – the midnight sun


Last week, on friday afternoon, I went on a mini vacation to Lofoten. My dear friend Linda’s boyfriend Glenn is from Lofoten. They were there on vacation and I came to visit. I had the pleasure to stay at Glenn’s parents house during my 5 days stay and it couldn’t have been better or more welcoming.

Lofoten is an archipelago and is known for a distinctive scenery with mountains and peaks, open ocean and sheltered bays, beaches and vast untouched lands. It offers surfing, cycling and many rock climbing and mountaineering opportunities.

Forest of my childhood


Last weekend I went to the countryside, to my parents place where I grew up. It’s always nice to be there, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It’s so much more quiet there.

Right now I got a black/white pack of polas in the camera and  it’s not easy to shoot with that. Much harder than I expected. I’ve tried four times and only one got decent (look at the bottom photo).

Visiting Svartdalen


During lunch at the office last week, we talked about what we’d done that weekend. My colleague Lise said she’d been on a bike ride with her boyfriend to Østensjøvannet and getting there they had passed this park/forest and I knew exactly which ones–it was Svartdalen and Svartdalsparken. I’ve been to the park once before, many years ago and I’ve walked the trail along the river Alna. What I didn’t remember, was that the trail started at a different place than I where I started.

Bits and bobs from Oslo

IMG_1012 dip

Colorful buildings isn’t all I love to photograph, even though I’m hooked on that these days. I thought it would be nice to spice up this blog with something else and why not use my 35mm lens as the main lens to capture other things? It’s ridiculous that I haven’t used that lens more than I have, because it’s absolutely brilliant.
