I’m not a big fan of HDR-photography, I much prefer the real deal. On this photo however, I quickly blended two photos together. They are both shot this morning and the motive is “Nordenga Bru” (Nordenga bridge) that combines the streets Schweigaardsgate & Bispegata.
I posted a winter photo from Oslo just a few days ago and today, as luck would have it, the theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge is “Winter”. Here are a couple of more winter photos that I shot the other day, except from the last one which is from winter 2009. I wanted to share with you how beautiful the sky can be during the winter.
In a Weekly Photo Challenge back in November 2011 I posted a photo from a violent demonstration in Oslo. In that post Jo Bryant commented and said:
Here’s a winter photo from Oslo. It’s probably not quite what you imagine when you hear the words ‘Oslo’ & ‘Winter’ in the same sentence, but this winter has been very mild so far, which means there’s no snow or ice here.
Time for another weekly photo challenge again. Don’t have much to say about this photo, and I don’t have time to come up with any words of wisdom, so I guess you’ll have to come up with your own…
Happy holidays everyone! Now I’ll have to start the preparations!

Edit: Added these two photos.
People between home & work
Are you suffering from the misconception that a life filled with rock’n'roll is easy living, comfort & no hard work? Well, if you read this story & have a look at these revealing photos, you will understand that you couldn’t possibly be more wrong: your illusions will burst and your thoughts will no longer be tainted! But is your tender mind really ready to handle the truth?
Another week, another weekly photo challenge: self-portrait is the challenge this week. Technically this is a painting and not a photo, but as long as it is a photo of a painting, I guess that makes it OK to post this one for the Weekly Photo Challenge?
The holiday spirits are upon us. People love the holidays and can’t wait to start celebrating – there’s a spike in church visits during Christmas and for the merchants the christmas celebrations can turn their accounts into surplus: the stores are all ramped up for Christmas and the decorations are out from floor to ceiling. In the spirit of the season, we gather the people we love the most — your spouse, your friends, your kids & families — and enjoy the most wonderful time of the year. For both kids & adults Christmas comes with great anticipation, but for these two…?
I’m in the process of scanning some of my old photos and found this Black&White photo of the Oslofjord that I shot some years ago.
“The Oslofjord is not a fjord in the geological sense – in Norwegian the term “fjord” can refer to a wide range of waterways.” (Wikipedia)
When they make Jim Beam, the distillers pour the Bourbon (which at this point is clear and has no colour) into empty, charred oak barrels and store them in what is called a rackhouse (which is something like a barn full of barrels).
This guy (who probably wants to remain anonymous) is clearly waiting for the impact (get ready to crash & freeze!). Unfortunately the focus on the image is on the background, but sometimes that’s the price to pay when you’re using auto-focus…
