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/
