The Changing Seasons: June 2016

The summer has finally arrived. Here’s this month’s «The Changing Seasons».

I’ve been busy lately and still haven’t visited all your posts from last month. Basically it’s been a mix between a lot of work and a whole lot of nothing. Doing nothing in particular also takes a lot of time. The latest news is that a few days ago I got the following message in my inbox on Instagram: @cguzmanofficial

«Hi Cardinal!
We freaked out with your Instagram feed 🙂
Most probably you already know it, but let us tell you how fantastic is your sense of art. We see hundreds of accounts each month, and yours is something apart.
We can’t believe that you are not followed by thousands, but that’s one of the mysteries of social media…
Anyhow, we are here to back you :D. Honestly, we don’t follow many people, but we think you really deserve it»

Needless to say, but that was an awesome message to find in the inbox.
Anyway, enough blah, blah, blah. Here’s my V1 gallery for «The Changing Seasons». I might, or I might not, post V2 later…

 

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!

  • I’ll add links to your posts here until the end of the month.

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.

Spring time in Oslo

Finally the holidays have arrived and with it came the spring,  or at least a small taste of it. We went for a walk yesterday and, as always, I brought my camera.

 

Oslo Opera Panorama Remake

Ten days ago I made a panorama of the Oslo Opera House. I wasn’t quite satisfied with the result, so I decided to do a remake.

I've been shooting some panorama photos lately and this is one of them.
