Finally WordPress posted their Weekly Photo Challenge. This week the theme is “Arranged”. So, here’s a photo from a demonstration in Oslo, Romeo – all lined up:
WordPress writes: “Share a picture that means THROUGH to you!”
I’m not much into photos of plants & flowers – normally I find them boring, but today I felt like taking some photos and after I came home from work I neither had the time or the energy to go on a motive hunt outside.
So, I had to improvise:
Useless trivia: This plant is actually the son/daughter of a “mother plant”. The mother has also produced 3 other babies – one which I gave to a friend.
According to Wikipedia Aloe Vera “are widely used in the cosmetics and alternative medicine industries, being marketed as variously having rejuvenating, healing or soothing properties. There is, however, little scientific evidence of the effectiveness or safety of A. vera extracts for either cosmetic or medicinal purposes, and what positive evidence is available is frequently contradicted by other studies. Medical uses of aloe vera are being investigated as well.

Shooting from the hip means taking a risk, as it is unpredictable, yet it can yield good results and I’m quite pleased with this particular photo.

Dette er en reiseartikkel jeg skrev for en del år tilbake som omhandler dagliglivet i en liten landsby rett utenfor Pokhara Lakeside, Nepal.
Pokhara, det er altså hvor jeg holder til mellom soloppgang og solnedgang i disse dager. Hvor jeg holder til under de timene av døgnet vi refererer til som søvn, er noe uklart. Jeg går ut i fra at jeg befinner meg sovende i det lille steinhuset jeg leier utenfor byen og utenfor turistområdet. Men, som de sier på spansk:
pregunta a las mariposas (gå og spør sommerfuglene).
This week WordPress wants us to: “Share a picture that means UNUSUAL to you!” So, I decided to present my readers to the Norwegian Saami artist Gjert Rognli. It’s not an understatement to claim that Gjert Rognli’s art is unusual: unusual & original, just like the artist himself. Here’s a short presentation and some of his photos:
WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge. This time the challenge is to “share a picture that means CONTRAST to you!”.
Here’s a few photos. Taken within a few days. I captured the first ones on Thursday – the day named after the Old Norse God Thor. Thor was the son of Odin – and he is the God of all Gods. On Thursday we had what probably and hopefully was our last day of winter this season.
Here’s another manipulation in the ghostly Valkyrie-series (well, I’ve just made two so far, but for me that’s enough to be classified as “series”).
Edit: I added this version after a request from Rick:

Around the world in one day! Here are some photos from the annual photo & travel exhibition at Lillestrøm, Norway. This exhibition is a combined photo & travel exhibition which this year took place between 02-04 of March 2012. Previous years it has been arranged in January.
The title pretty much explains everything: Kids playing football in Jerusalem.
I don’t know if there’s anything more to say about this photo…?

Here’s a black & white photo that I shot last week down by the pier.
For this weeks photo challenge WordPress writes: “perhaps something is actually distorting your picture, or perhaps your perception, feelings, or outlook is what distorts what you’re aiming your camera at. Get creative!”
So, here are some sexy photos that I shot last weekend:
