The Changing Seasons: January 2020

What kind of a winter is this? There’s no snow and it’s very mild. Unfortunately there’s no proper ice for ice skating either.

September is here and brought autumn with her. This is the third consecutive year that I cover September in this challenge and after this (as you probably already know) there’s only 3 months left of the year.

Byens Helter

Jeg vil gjerne rette en stor takk til byens helter som måtte rykke ut til en nabo’s tørrkokte kjele idag. Det ble mye røyk, men ingen brann eller personskader – delvis takket være heltemodig innsats fra snarrådige naboer.

The Changing Seasons: June 2017

All phone photos for «The Changing Seasons» this month. The past month I’ve only shot portraits, which isn’t really suitable for this challenge… There’s still some days to go, but my schedule is packed till the end of the month.

A phone photo, but not a phone photo.

The Changing Seasons: May 2017

Mango Sticky Rice

Near the Wat Pho temple in Bangkok you can get some really good sticky rice. It’s a small, confined space – a tiny place where the only thing they serve is mango sticky rice.

The Changing Seasons: January 2017

The Changing Seasons is here again. Like they say: “new year, new possibilities”, or perhaps you’re one of those people who don’t want to get out of your comfort zone? In that case: “New year, same, same”. Either way you’re welcome to join this challenge that will run throughout the year.

Havnelageret, Langkaia 1, Oslo.

How you interpret “the changing seasons” is all up to you: a painting or perhaps a digital manipulation? One photo, a gallery with plenty of photos? Photos of the same place each month or different spots? A recipe (with an illustration photo that you’ve shot), your aging face, your declining health? Street, flash or portrait photography?
Be creative or don’t.

The Changing Seasons Recap 2016

One of the few rules for «The Changing Seasons» is “Don’t use photos from your archive. Only new shots.” Well, I’m breaking that rule, but since this is a recap it makes sense…

Those of you that have followed me through 2016 (thanks for following!), have seen these shots already, but I think it’s appropriate to post a recap of 2016 before I start my Changing Seasons 2017 posts in the end of this month.

The Changing Seasons: November 2016

We had winter for a week or so, but it’s back to grey & wet again. Blah, blah, blah. November.

October was colorful, November is twig season and December is holiday season. November was a good month and it had a few slightly magic moments: the highlight was my trip to Marseille, but Oslo also had its moments. Here’s my November gallery:
(P.S. last month I did a minor change in the info about this challenge, as usual you can read it after the gallery)

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 2017.
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!

Hello Oslo

I hardly ever repost anything, but how could I not repost this?!? Check out the post for photos, words and a video!

“Unfortunately I did not get to see much of Oslo. Well at least what is “expected” of one to see when in Oslo.  However my time was certainly not wasted.  I was fortunate enough…”

Gamlebyen Sport & Fritid

Gamlebyen Sport & Fritid is the local skatepark. They held an opening show some weeks ago. It was an official opening for the playground and new skateboard area for kids. A skateboard contest for adults were also held. Check out my Flickr gallery for more photos and some short clips from this event:

The Changing Seasons: September 2016

Gamlebyen Sport & Fritid

100% boredom as usual: Last month I had the privilege to exclaim “Summer vacation is over and it was freaking awesome!”. This month I can reveal that the autumn is here and that it has been extremely average. Absolutely nothing exciting has happened in the month that has passed. You can’t win every time.

Here’s this month’s «The Changing Seasons»:

The Changing Seasons: August 2016

Summer vacation is over and it was freaking awesome!

Now I’m back at work and haven’t had the time to process all of the photos from this summer yet but, as you can see from my previous post, I’ve posted the ones from the Titanic International Tattoo Convention in Belfast. Still I have a bunch from the North of Norway, plus another bunch from a trip I arranged to the famous Norwegian places: Preikestolen, Kjeragbolten and Trolltunga, to process. This was the first time that I arranged such a trip, so you can say it was pretty rare. Blah, blah, blah, here’s this month’s «The Changing Seasons»:

 

V2: My Version 2 this month is (of course) tattoo related.

The Changing Seasons: July 2016

My changing seasons post this month is a scheduled post.

I don’t have many photos from this month (yet) and the ones that I do have is basically just different takes on the same scene. I went nuts on the post-processing, but it was fun and I don’t regret it! Hehe. Hopefully, after the summer, I’ll have plenty of landscape photos and lots of portraits to share with you.

I also had time to create something artistic for the V2 (version 2) part of the challenge this month.

This is a double exposure (post-process) of a nude model that I shot in a studio and a monkey skull I captured at a scientific museum (Yes, I’m a geek that sometimes do “boring stuff” like visiting museums).
