Before the sun sets

Inspiration can come from many places. One big source of inspiration is Instagram. I spend a great deal of time there. I recently started to follow this young photographer, Weston Kloefkorn, on Instagram–look him up on Instagram or his website. He had taken a photo from the roof of the Operahouse in Oslo and it was such a beautiful photo.

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.

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.

Out in the streets

20161019_171108-dipIn my last post I talked about street photography and how I wanted to do more of that. This time I actually followed through and did what I said I would. There are evidence of me not doing that lots of times in the past. Positive feedback from followers here and on my Insta account made it easier to follow up. I can admit it, it’s no secret, I’m a sucker for positive feedback.
