Bits and bobs from Oslo

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.

Colorful Oslo III

The fascination for colorful buildings haven’t stopped yet and when you walk around Oslo you’ll see many of them. You just have to go to places that’s not in the middle of Oslo, stay away from the parade street Karl Johan’s gate and the streets where the shops are located. If you avoid the inner city, there are many of beautiful building with different colors.

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.

Colorful Oslo

I’ve been fixed on colors and buildings lately–colorful buildings to be more accurate. I’ve posted quite some photos of colorful buildings on Instagram lately. Today I thought it would be nice to shoot something with my camera and not just the phone (even though I have a brand new Samsung S7 Edge that takes quite good photos).

It’s been very sunny today and hot, I guess like 27c and it was almost too hot to photograph. But just almost. I grabbed an icecream before I pulled my camera out of my backpack, just what I needed.

I went to a place close to my home called Rodeløkka. There are lots of wooden, colorful houses in that area. It’s been a long time since I’ve been there photographing, so it was fun coming back. I took a lot of photos, there was so many lovely colors and color combinations.

Oslo, early in the morning

Last weekend I had a long weekend because of Whitsun and the celebration of our Constitution Day on the 17th. I was busy on saturday and sunday; visiting a friend out of town, celebrating her birthday. On monday I hadn’t made any plans at all. I knew the weather would be nice and since I’ve been inspired to photograph lately, I wanted to take advantage of that and decided to go on an early photo trip.

The beach

IMG_6810small

Last year I went to the Netherlands again visiting my friend Chantal. Visiting her have become a yearly thing. The weather was so nice, we decided to bike to the beach again. Chantal lives in Alkmaar, 45 minutes north of Amsterdam. As the year before we decided to go to beach at Egmond aan Zee, it’s only a 30 minutes bike ride away.

As you can see it was sunny day, with a clear blue sky and it was warm. The sand was hot, too hot to walk barefoot in and it was the right amount of wind to cool you down a bit and play with kites.

At the lake

I have quite some unprocessed photos on my computer, due to lack of of inspiration to post process photos and blog. I’ve been meaning to go through my old photos from last year and post things here, but I didn’t have much inspiration last year. The last  month I’ve blogged again, but only posted new photos.

I needed something to ignite my inspiration again. Yesterday I found that something. For a while now I’ve followed this young German photographer, Olli Dressler, on Instagram. I’ve admired his work and often found myself double tap his photos. Not until yesterday I thought about finding out if he had a website or some sort of photography blog. I found myself wanting to find out who the guy behind the beautiful photos is.
