The Changing Seasons: February 2017

February is almost over and I haven’t shot much in Oslo this month, but I’ve had to capture something for “The Changing Seasons”.

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!

Statoil Grønland

It used to be a petrol station here. Now they’ll build some housing units. Last weekend (13 & 14th of April 2013) there were 2 rapes in this area: one gang rape in a parking garage, plus one the next night  where a woman was knocked senseless from behind before she was raped.

Maaemo Restaurant, Oslo

This is the only 2 Michelin star restaurant in Norway. I can’t afford to eat there, but at least I can afford to sneak around outside, taking pictures at night.

Maemo, I'm secretly stalking you in those dark nights.

Hopefully you already know this, but I will tell you anyway: you can click the image to enlarge it and then click it again to enlarge it even more.

Today: a day in Oslo – part 1

There’s a whole lot of photos in this post. The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge this week is “Today”. Sara Rosso over at WordPress wrote:

“No rules or guidance on what to post other than the photo must be taken today! Don’t cheat, don’t go into your photo archives on your computer, don’t link to an old post. Get your camera out, right now, and snap a picture to share with everyone!”
