Monochrome Yule

Yule is here and so is Monochrome Madness.


A Yule decoration at the Folk Museum in Oslo.

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).

B&W Challenge 3-5: Yule Decorations

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).

The central train station.

Early in the morning, hours before all the pick-pockets, junkies & drug dealers have arrived and started their business…

Good Morning Oslo. Have a nice day!
