Landmark: The Oslo Opera

The theme for #photo101 today is Landmark and the Opera House in Oslo fits that category. Last year I printed this panoramic photo on an aluminium plate measuring 40×120 cm (that would be approximately 16×47 inches if you live in one of the 3 countries – Liberia, Myanmar or USA – that are still using […]

Gallery: Details from the Oslo Opera

The Oslo Opera is and the surrounding area is, as you’ve probably noticed, one of my favourite places to take photos. I think the building itself is very nice and there’s also a lot of interesting photo opportunities in the neighborhood. On top of that it’s also in proximity to where I live and I’ve […]

Oslo Opera Panorama

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.

Oslo Opera by Night

Two days ago I posted a bunch of photos shot on a foggy day around the Opera House in Oslo. None of these shoots had an abundance of favourable light, but low-light photography can open for interesting possibilities that you wouldn’t have under conventionally perfect lighting conditions. Night-time photography can also  produce interesting results, but […]

The Opera House in Oslo (Weekly Photo Challenge – Windows)

I’ve already posted a picture from a violent demonstration for the weekly photo challenge this week, but the picture I posted was from my back-catalog and a few years old, so this morning I figured I’d grab the camera and head out for a fresh photo shoot.

Oslo reflections in a thin layer of ice

This is a little preview of what’s to come in my next «The Changing Seasons» Post. It’s also my entry for WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge this week. Check out the changing seasons challenge here:

Oslo – A Village on Steroids

Oslo is a village on steroids and I’m looking forward to the rage roid… Except for the panorama, all of these are shot from Ekebergåsen – a place where you have a nice view over the city. From here you can see Holmenkollen, The Barcode Area, the Opera House, the harbour, the city center and […]

Gamlebyen – Then & Now: Oslo Hospital 2

Another post from Oslo Hospital – Dollhuset for Afsindige. 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 […]

Opera Software Headquarters

For those of you that are into software & computers (Daniel?): I just wanted to present this gallery with the surroundings Opera Software‘s new headquarters in Oslo. Opera’s new offices are located in Gjerdrums Vei 19 in Nydalen, Oslo. All these photos are shot  nearby or just outside the building.

Good Morning Oslo!

This turned out to be a perfect entry for the Weekly Photo Challenge. Sleepy people on their way to work. A christmas tree closing in on death. Christmas decorations, waiting to be packed and stored in cardboard boxes (where they’ll have to wait, just to repeat their short career’s around the same time next year). […]

The Changing Seasons: September 2017

September is here and brought autumn with her. This is the third consecutive year that I cover September in this challenge and after this (as you probably already know) there’s only 3 months left of the year.

Preikestolen, Kjeragbolten and Trolltunga

I shot these photos on our trip to Preikestolen, Kjeragbolten and Trolltunga this summer. I took too many photos to upload them all to WordPress, so if you want to see the rest of the photos you’ll have to visit my Flickr gallery – nearly 300 photos of wild, Norwegian nature, I promise you that […]

The continuation of Dumporamas

You’ll find a lot of panoramic images online and they’re mostly depicting beautiful & scenic landscapes or stunning cityscapes.  Photos that try to make the world look like this beautiful, magical place, making you think “Oh, I wish I was there to see it myself”, or “What a wonderful place”. We all know it’s false […]

My Largest Print So Far

I printed this panoramic photo of the Oslo Opera House as a gift to a relative. The measures are 40×120 cm. That would be approximately 16×47 inches using the idiotic system (it’ll actually make more sense to use nautical miles instead of the imperial system. In nautical miles the photo measures 0.000215983 X 0.000647948). It’s my […]

Changing Seasons – The Nutcracker

We went to the Oslo Opera to see the Nutcracker the other day. To me the Nutcracker is a sign that the holiday season – the Mid Winters Blot (Mid-Winter Fest / Christmas) is about to begin. Normally when I’m around the Opera, it’s just to shoot some photos, but this was my second time […]


Photography… It’s a passion of mine – hence I take a lot of photos. Here’s a large and random collection of photos that you can find in this blog:     I loved you like a man loves a woman he never touches, only writes to, keeps little photographs of. ― Charles Bukowski, Love is […]


This is Margarinfabrikken (The Margarine Factory) at Bjølsen (Stavangergata 42), Oslo. It was built between 1926 and 1927 and put into operation in 1929. The architect of the building is Thorvald Astrup. The main building has protected status worthy of preservation. Today the Margarine Factory is Norway’s largest nursery with 6-700 children. The kindergarten was […]

Sørenga / Bjørvika II

Here’s a gallery of recent photos from Oslo.  On the photos you’ll see the Eastside of the Opera house (with tiny red slave barracks), the Bjørvika area, Sørenga and the financial district they’ve named The Barcode.
