New, old friend and a phototrip

img_4483bwsmall

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Foggy Oslo

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.
