Foggy Oslo

img_7129small

January has been one foggy month. There might not have been foggy every day, but it sure feels like it. Two weekends ago, I went on a spontaneous  photo trip. When I woke up sunday morning, I saw that it was foggy again. I did not see the Oslo fjord from my balcony and I instantly wanted to go out and catch the fog on camera.

Sunny Oslo

Janauar 2017 has been one big foggy month. I don’t think I’ve experienced so much fog in such a short span of time ever before. Luckily I had no plans when the sun graced Oslo with a visit two weeks ago. It was sunday and went early home to Oslo from my parents place at Lierfoss, after having attended a friends 40th birthday that weekend. For the record, the birthday party was a real blast–I had such a great time and danced a lot to old classics, ate a VERY GOOD chocolate cake and wasn’t in bed before 4 AM in the morning.

New, old friend and a phototrip

I met my new, old friend Ian in mid November. He put it so well when he said we were new, old friends. The thing is, we’ve known each other for ten years, but never met until now. Ian, who is from Minnesota, US, studied 6 months in Oslo ten years ago and he became friends with an ex-colleague Lars.

Sunny side up – Oslo

November usually is dark and this november hasn’t been different. After the snow we had weeks ago, melted because it got a little warmer, it got even darker. The sun hasn’t been very present lately and when it’s dark when you go to work in the morning and when you leave, there isn’t much time to photograph.

My plans got canceled on saturday (I was going shopping with a friend and then wine at my place later with her sleeping over), so suddenly I had nothing to do. What better thing to do than to go on a impromptu photo trip.

Bits and bobs from Oslo pt. II

The past two months, I’ve been out photographing in  Oslo. There hasn’t been anything in particular I’ve been aiming to shoot, I have just wanted to shoot things I that catches my eyes and I find pretty / interesting. I’ve also wanted to spend more time with my 35mm lens, so that have been my primary lens when I’ve been out photographing. I’ve been walking around different parts of time, both the center of Oslo and the west side.

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. I was visiting a friend of mine, an uncle and spending a some time with my parents. I grew up close the the forest, it’s just a minute away from our house.

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.

Foggy Oslo

IMG_8508small

The last weekend before Christmas I had some free time and I went downtown to do some photographing. I haven’t done that in ages and lately I’ve missed it. I wasn’t feeling 100% well–a starting cold was present, so my energy level wasn’t on top and my phototrip didn’t last that long.

What made me go out was the thick fog that lay like  a carpet over Oslo. Normally I stand on my balcony (on the 5th floor) and look over Oslo and the fjord. I got  great view over the city. That saturday I didn’t see anything. The fog had hidden all the buildings and the fjord.
