Delicate Oslo

Delicate Oslo? Delicate is an adjective. If you look up the word at thesaurus.com, you’ll find that the definition of the word is: «dainty, weak»

When I shot this photo the chimneys caught my attention. It looks a bit like they fill up the sky with whatever it is that they’re spewing out.

Synonyms for ‘delicate’ can be:  aerial, balmy, breakable, choice, delectable, delicious, delightful, elegant, ethereal, exquisite, faint, filmy, fine, fine-grained, finespun, flimsy, fracturable, fragile, frail, frangible, gauzy, gentle, gossamery, graceful, hairline, mild, muted, nice, pale, pastel, rare, recherché, select, shatterable, shattery, slight, soft, subdued, subtle, superior, tender.

So, which one of these synonyms suits Oslo? I guess an eclectic mix.

  8. Delightful, parts of it anyway :-) And also growing and changing – that’s what your photo makes me think about anyway! The sky is just great, and really nice composition!

    • Glad you like my composition. This city is definitely growing and changing. A lot of people complain about the growth and it causes them much distress to see the world change rapidly, but the people who rent out or sell housing are delighted.

  10. This is the first time I heard of gossamery :) Your photo shows Oslo as exquisite, filmy, aerial, subtle, superior and many other things that are not covered by “delicate” The chimney fumes give it an etheral quality.. no doubt about that. I really enjoy your night photography CG…. Too bad there is only 5-star option ;)

      • Oh yes, that’s quite a challenge … I usually have post-its on my desk with different words in different languages and the best trick to remember them is to use them in a funny sentence.

  11. i love the way your night photos hint at what is underneath… all those lights of people’s households, you can almost hear the heartbeat and hum of life…

  15. That’s such a strange effect with the chimneys and the cloud – it turns the picture from a straightforward beautiful cityscape into something more oppressive and claustrophobic. Nice.

    • Thanks Richard. It adds some sort of gloomy feeling to the picture. A picture of the modern society, where we are in the active process of trying to poison ourselves to death in the name of profit.

  17. A stunning image. Reading these posts backwards, it’s intriguing and somewhat chilling the contrast between this tranquil delicacy and the protest pix. Thanks for sharing them both.
