Polaroid love

img042small

I love to bring my Polaroid camera on photo trips, but I don’t do it nearly as often as I would like to. 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).

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.

Doors II

We’ve had some great days weather-wise here in Oslo (Norway) the last days. It’s been over 20 degrees celsius and very sunny. I took the opportunety to go out on a photo trip on sunday, after dropping of a friend, who had visited me, at the bus station. Once again, I decided to go door scouting, since I love doors so much. I went to the west side of Oslo this time too, but in a slightly different area.

Doors – a revisited photo project

So I talked about starting a new photo project a few posts ago and in my last post told you I had found out I wanted to photograph doors again. Last week I got around to scout doors. You see doors everywhere, but I don’t want the ordinary ones, I want the special ones. The really cool ones. I went to the west side of Oslo, where I had spotted a door I wanted to photograph. I photographed that one first (it’s the top photo) and then I walked around the nearby streets to find some other doors.

There is many great doors on the west side of Oslo. Here are a few of them. I hope you’ll like them. Hopefully I’ll be able to go door scouting again soon.

This sky is on fire!

Throwback to that day in october last year when the sky was so dramatic your jaw dropped and your eyes were big as dinner plates. It was magical and spectacular. I think the photos speaks for them selves. No edits done to the photos (other than the square onesI took with my phone and edited a bit before I posted them on Instagram).
