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. http://leannecolephotography.com/2014/12/24/mm43-monochrome-madness-with-a-splash-of-colour/
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 this blogger that I’ve recently discovered: thejeremynix @ thejeremynix.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).

This Friday some family members came for a visit and a sleepover and on Saturday they were baby sitting, while we crossed the border over to Sweden to do some shopping for Yule/Christmas.
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). A tiger with a frozen head – they say you can rub his balls for good luck (OK, so I just made that up, but you can always try). A tram & a bus seen through the icy window of a bus. The central train station.
Early in the morning, hours before all the pick-pockets, junkies & drug dealers have arrived and started their business…
Here’s a winter photo from Oslo. It’s probably not quite what you imagine when you hear the words ‘Oslo’ & ‘Winter’ in the same sentence, but this winter has been very mild so far, which means there’s no snow or ice here.
