Monthly Photo Challenge: The Changing Seasons 09

Autumn is here already, but I still have late summer photos to show you for «The Changing Seasons». All the photos in this gallery were shot in August.

August means the end of summer and back to work, so it hasn’t been nearly as great as July was, but I met up with fellow blogger Joanne Sisco and I’ve had a few Couchsurfers visiting, attended a couple of events, plus I went for a trip to Italy (of course I’ll post photos from this later and I still have more photos to share from my trip to Sandhornøya in the North of Norway).

Last month I posted 5 galleries with too many photos. This month I decided to publish all the photos in an album on my Flickr account. If you’re interested, you can head over to Flickr to see them all. Just follow the link:

«The Changing Seasons» is a monthly photo challenge with a few basic guidelines. I started the challenge in January with photos that I shot in December.

If you feel like joining this challenge, these are the guidelines:

  • Find a location near your home. Each month take somewhere between 5-20 photos and post them in a gallery in your blog (I’ll post mine on the 7th, but you can choose your own publishing date).
  • Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons (this makes it very easy for others to follow the challenge using the WordPress reader if your blog is running in the WordPress platform).
  • Don’t use photos from your archive. Only new shots.

  2. Great August pictures. We are going traveling soon to upstate New York and Vermont, so I’m saving my pictures until I some more interesting stuff. I also, like you, have a lot of August remaining. More pictures than month! Yours are gorgeous.

  3. Oooooh – I’m so excited to actually recognize some of these photos (hello, helicopter taking flight!!).

    So many of these photos jumped out at me but the one that really caught my attention was all the people at the Opera building. Having been there and walked around this building I now have an appreciation for how HUGE this event must have been!!

    A wonderful selection of photos!

    • It was 6000 people on the Opera roof, plus another couple of thousand on the side where I shot the photos. Definitely a huge event. They’d build a ramp where homemade vessels were supposed to take off and fly as long as possible, but most of them crashed in the water immidiately after “take off”. It was a warm day and my son was impatient, so we just saw the two first vessels before we went back home, but we had a nice, little trip anyway. 🙂

  4. this is such a brilliant series, Viking!! every time you post it I get so inspired and promise myself to go out and shoot the seasons in the hood… then I get lazy and do nothin… such a shame (blush)… at least I can enjoy your photos 🙂

    end of the year you can do a roundup if you have shot the same locations throughout the year…

    what’s the story of the yellow building? 🙂

    • It feels good to be lazy sometimes. Procrastinating makes you feel so much better about things when they’re finally done 🙂 Soon you’ll have the chance to go and capture some colourful autumn photos of your hood and share them in your blog, but if you don’t make it there’s always an autumn next year too. Hehe.

  5. I must know the story behind the yellow building. Are you really going to make me go to Oslo to hear it? The rat kind of made me afraid of the place.

    • Yes, I’ll make you go to Oslo to hear it. You don’t have to worry about the rat anymore: it’s dead and probably some seagull or something ate it already. Mmmmmm. *tasty rat meat*

  6. Beautiful season. Glad to hear you got out and about this summer – lovely photos and your neck of the world looks so vibrant this time of the year. The ship looks magnificent, almost ancient and I suppose you weren’t allowed to ride it 😀 Hope you enjoyed time with your son too 🙂 ❤

  7. These are beautiful photos Max. What glorious light you have captured here. I of course love the train spotting shot. But also the old tram and the shot with the silo/housing in the background. I’m loving your city.

  8. Morrn,
    Your photos never fail to impress, but the one on top, ‘The Opera’, is really something! Caught my eye right away … the lines, the reflections … wow!

  9. Very nice!
    I’m not ready yet to give up on summer, and we’re still swathed in heat and humidity, so I’ll be glad to grab these last few weeks of it,a nd continue to preserve some memories to get me through the long winter months.

  11. I really enjoyed these photos, Cardinal! I don’t even have the words to explain why! I scrolled through several times to take in the views.

  12. Another stellar post! As usual I found it difficult to select a favorite. When I came to the sepia toned Akershus Fortress I thought that was it. But then I came to Duck and Kids, then Reflections, and I wasn’t so sure of my original choice. Then Trainspotting edged out all the others, but the Couch surfing photos looked like such fun! And then there is Street art. Needless to say I enjoyed the photos. Oslo looks like a wonderful, colorful, fun city!

    My post for this month is finally up! Enjoy. 🙂

    • Thanks for your post (& comment) Cecilia. I got some great portraits of my son that day we went trainspotting. People seem to be a bit slow with their posts this month, so I’m glad to see your post! Very nice galleries.

  15. What a great variety! I am a bit behind on this challenge, but I am off this weekend and going out to shoot. And I don’t think I ever did last months. I may have some pictures I took though….not sure. Either way, I am inspired to go get some!
