Thank God for the rain to wash the trash off the sidewalk

This is obviously a manipulated photo – the Cardinal version of Travis Bickle:

The theme for #photo101 today is Treasure. The rain that washes the trash off the sidewalk, Taxi Driver, they’re both treasures.

Angular Barcode

Angular is the theme for WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge this week. I chose these shots of the Barcode area in Oslo.


I shot these on a Sunday walk two weeks ago. It’s Alnaelva (Alna River) in Oslo. It was a cloudy day and I used my surroundings to support the camera,  so that I could take long exposure shots and get the soft effect on the water. I could have used my tripod, but I didn’t bring it because I didn’t want to carry it around.

Using the surroundings (a fence, a fallen down tree and such things) to support the camera is cheap and easy for those of you who don’t have a tripod, or if you’ve left the tripod at home. The theme for #photo101 today is Landscape.

The theme for #photo101 today is Moment. We’re only here for a moment, try to enjoy it while it lasts.

Here’s a tune from that a friend and I played in my mom’s funeral (which was not the one on the photo above). I guess the best way to describe the tune is classical guitars.
