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.

The Changing Seasons: May 2016

Warmer weather = more time spent outside = more photos. I love that combination. These are my photos for The Changing Seasons this month.

The 17th of May is Norway’s constitution day, a jubilee that is celebrated with children’s parades. That’s why my V2 photo this month is a picture from the parade.

What’s this «Changing Seasons» blogging challenge?

«The Changing Seasons 2016» is a blogging challenge with two versions: the original (V1) which is purely photographic and the new version (V2) where you can allow yourself to be more artistic and post a painting, a recipe, a digital manipulation, or simply just one photo that you think represents the month. Anyone with a blog can join this challenge and it’ll run throughout 2016. It doesn’t matter if you couldn’t join the first month(s), late-comers are welcomed. These are the rules, but they’re not written in stone – you can always improvise, mix & match to suit your own liking:

These are the rules for Version 1 (The Changing Seasons V1):

  • Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons
  • Each month, post 5-20 photos in a gallery.
  • Don’t use photos from your archive. Only new shots.

These are the rules for Version 2 (The Changing Seasons V2):

  • Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons
  • Each month, post one photo (recipe, painting, drawing, whatever) that represents your interpretation of the month.
  • Don’t use archive stuff. Only new material!

Ocscarshall Slott 2015

On Saturday 12.09.2015, the annual National Photo Walk (I’ll refer to it as NPW2015 from now on) was held in Norway. Anders Beer Wilse was a guy with a camera that lived in the old days.

At some point in 1847, Anders decided to bring his gear and head out to Bygdøy, a peninsula in Oslo, where he photographed Ocscarshall Slott (Oscarhall Castle). Then, much later, someone invented the internet and after that again, Norsk Folkemusem (Norwegian Folk Museum) decided to post his photos on their website. If Anders was alive today, he probably would have been a passionate photo blogger with a boring, normal job.

Approximately 168 years after Anders, I brought my camera and headed out to Bygdøy for the NPW2015. The theme of NPW2015 was “My Saturday”, but as a side-mission/bonus-mission we could walk in Anders’ footsteps and replicate his stuff. The image that I shot, is part of my «Then & Now»-series. You can check out my previous entries by following the tag: «Then & Now»

Oscarhall was probably someone’s happy place at some point… https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/happy-place/

B&W Challenge 4-5: Early Winter Morning

BW_3122

The wonderful Ksenia has challenged me to post black & white photos for the up-coming five days. It took me a few weeks to notice that I’d been challenged, but better late than never!

In return I nominate Robyn @ robynsfineart.wordpress.com/

In order to take this challenge, you must post B&W photography for the next five days, and each day nominate another photographer to enter the challenge. Good luck!
(Needless to say, but of course you can also choose to not participate or to do it later if it doesn’t fit your current schedule).

Also check out Photo101 rehab: http://luciledegodoy.com/2014/12/04/photo101-rehab/ or some more sunny shots in Paula’s Thursday post: http://bopaula.wordpress.com/2014/12/18/thursdays-special-sunset/
