This is the photo from my previous post from this area:
EDIT: I’ve added a widget on the right side of my blog so that the archive is available for those interested.
It used to be a petrol station here. Now they’ll build some housing units. Last weekend (13 & 14th of April 2013) there were 2 rapes in this area: one gang rape in a parking garage, plus one the next night where a woman was knocked senseless from behind before she was raped.
Here’s a draft that I made a couple of weeks ago from a photo walk with some other photo geeks.
This is the only 2 Michelin star restaurant in Norway. I can’t afford to eat there, but at least I can afford to sneak around outside, taking pictures at night.
Hopefully you already know this, but I will tell you anyway: you can click the image to enlarge it and then click it again to enlarge it even more.
Schweigaardsgate is one of Oslo’s many disgusting streets. The cold wind blows through it, at nights it’s always empty and now they’re erecting tall, public office buildings, to make sure that Schweigaardsgate will be even more dead, cold and deserted in the night-time.
Here’s a couple of shots of the Ford that I posted yesterday:
Finally the holidays have arrived and with it came the spring, or at least a small taste of it. We went for a walk yesterday and, as always, I brought my camera.
One evening when I crossed this bridge, I wanted to take a photo. As soon as the ducks saw me, they started quacking and came towards me.
Sorry about the quality: the photo is shot with my Canon Ixus 130 pocket camera, which unfortunately creates a lot of noise on high ISO (ISO-500 in this example).
Ten days ago I made a panorama of the Oslo Opera House. I wasn’t quite satisfied with the result, so I decided to do a remake.
All of these photos, except the one with a view from the hill over a city, are taken in Grenoble. I don’t remember the name of the other city, but it’s right next to Grenoble.
We had some friends that lived in Grenoble, so we went there to visit them a couple of times, but a few days ago they moved to a country far, far, away. Hopefully we can visit them there some day!
It looks kind of good at nights, but a daytime version of this photo would have been grey and boring…
A panoramic view of The Oslo Opera House in Bjørvika in Oslo.
Wikipedia: The Oslo Opera House (Norwegian: Operahuset) is the home of The Norwegian National Opera and Ballet, and the national opera theatre in Norway. The building is situated in the Bjørvika neighborhood of central Oslo, at the head of the Oslofjord.

Those of you who follow this blog already know that I’ve been working on a series of posts from my neighborhood called «Gamlebyen: Then & Now». This will be my fourth post and I’ll show some images of a bridge named Geitabru (Goats Bridge). It’s also been known as Oslo Bru and in one of these old photos it’s referred to as Jernbanebroen (The Railway Bridge).
My friend said that he always used Photomatix Pro for his HDR-photos, so I decided to try it out. Normally I use Photoshop for all my image editing and occasionally Adobe Lightroom. I decided to make 4 different versions of the same 3 bracketed photos and post one of the original photos, so that you (and I) can compare.
I’m new to Photomarix Pro, so the result probably looks different from it would if I were familiar with the software. First the original photo and at the end there’s a gallery for easy maneuvering:
It’s a bit early to say, but the day these pictures were shot might have been the last day of winter for now…
Of course, winter has its ways and can suddenly come back to surprise us all – weeks after we’d all forgotten that it ever existed. Anyway: one day I was on my way to
slavery work as usual and as I was looking out the bus window, I noticed that ice crystals had attached themselves on the branches of our friends: the trees. I thought to myself that this might be the last opportunity to capture this scene on film (or on memory card) for a while, so I got off the bus and took some photos (you never want to miss out on a great opportunity, right?).
Like the previous one this one’s also from the websites of Oslo City Archives and the original photo was shot in 1900 by an unknown photographer (most likely the same one). You can see the area around Gamlebyen Kirke, with the cemetary on the left and Oslo Hospital og Kirke (Oslo Hospital and Church) on the right.
The current buildings are partly erected on the ruins of the old Franciscan monastery that was established around 1290 at the invitation of Duke Håkon. The adjacent bridge (the medieval Geitabru), is mentioned on several occasions in the Norse sagas and it was linking the western and eastern part of Oslo’s first city street: “Clemens Almenningen.”

Gamlebyen Skole is a primary school in the borough of Gamle Oslo (old Oslo). The school was founded in 1881 under the name Oslo Skole and then consisted of a 3 storey building. In the early 1990′s the school was completely renovated and reopened in 1994. Today the school is home to about 250 pupils aged 6-12. 38% of them have Norwegian as their native tongue.
