Monthly Photo Challenge: The Changing Seasons 03

Another month has passed and it passed quickly (February is short). I took the time to shoot some photos from Oslo for this monthly photo challenge called “The Changing Seasons”. If you want to join the challenge it’s not too late yet. You can read about the few rules in the first post: Monthly Photo Challenge:…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Symmetry

In general my life is lacking symmetry these days (as you can see in the last photo with the all the cardboard boxes and the mess): I’m moving (again), so blogging is set temporarily on pause/given low priority. Expect more (and hopefully better) photos and posts as soon as things have settled (probably around April).…

ABFriday 32: Follow your own footsteps

Stacy is arranging something called «After Before Friday». Here’s what she has to say about it: After-Before Friday posts provide an opportunity for photographers (amateur and seasoned, alike) to share their photos, and if they wish, their post-processing decisions. The photos will provide a fun “wow” factor; the post-processing descriptions, the “how.” The goal is…


After Before Friday

Stacy @ is arranging “After Before Friday”. This week Emilio Pasquale took the photo and the participants are all giving it their own personal look. From the RAW file I made 3 exposures and turned it into HDR. Then I turned it duotone and blurred out some parts. Check out the other entries here:…

Oslo – A Village on Steroids

A sunny winter morning.

Good morning 2015!

A positive & fresh start I was going to write something positive about a fresh start now that we’ve turned the pages in our calendars and write 2015, instead of 2014, but there’s an endless amount of these “positive thinking, life is so fantastic, you are what you eat, spiritual guidance gave me the courage…


Photo Galleries | Random 2014

I thought that I’d recycle – it’s environmental friendly, plus there’s not a lot of traffic during the holidays, so posting new stuff is useless anyway. Enjoy these two photo galleries with random shots uploaded in 2014. January – May: June – December: These are my plans for 2015: The weekly Sunday posts in my…

Frozen pine needles captured this morning.

Frozen Pine Needles

This morning I captured these frozen pine needles when I was on my way to get the last ingredients for the Yule dinner. After that I spent two hours making rice porridge that I’ll use for the traditional rice cream / rice pudding dessert tomorrow.

Monochrome Yule

Yule is here and so is Monochrome Madness. This is my entry for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness post. I guess it’ll be online about 24-hours after this post. Today I’ve made onion jam and mustard for the upcoming family dinner (in Norway we celebrate on the evening of the 24th). Edit. Leanne’s post is up.
