I posted a winter photo from Oslo just a few days ago and today, as luck would have it, the theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge is “Winter”. Here are a couple of more winter photos that I shot the other day, except from the last one which is from winter 2009. I wanted to share with you how beautiful the sky can be during the winter.
Time for another weekly photo challenge again. Don’t have much to say about this photo, and I don’t have time to come up with any words of wisdom, so I guess you’ll have to come up with your own…
Happy holidays everyone! Now I’ll have to start the preparations!

Edit: Added these two photos.
This guy (who probably wants to remain anonymous) is clearly waiting for the impact (get ready to crash & freeze!). Unfortunately the focus on the image is on the background, but sometimes that’s the price to pay when you’re using auto-focus…
This week’s theme is Family, which I guess is a pretty easy challenge for most people, especially now that they celebrate thanksgiving in the US – that should be a great opportunity to shoot some family photos.
We recently got a scanner, so actually I have tons of funny family photos from the psychedelic 1970’s and the horrible 80’s on a disk, but instead of posting one of them, I chose to share this photo of my wife (well, at least parts of her):
It’s shot at the day of our wedding party and she is trying on shoes before we leave the house.

At first I thought that this weeks Photo Challenge would be a tricky one, but as I sat down and started thinking about my options I realized that I had plenty to choose from. My immediate reaction was: “Hmmm, didn’t I go to a hospital and document some child births lately?”, but then I suddenly remembered that the security personnel on the hospital forced me to delete all those photos from my memory card as they threw me out of the hospital… 🙂 How rude! So, with those pictures eliminated, I had to dig deeper… Deep into the magic of the sea…
I’ve already posted a picture from a violent demonstration for the weekly photo challenge this week, but the picture I posted was from my back-catalog and a few years old, so this morning I figured I’d grab the camera and head out for a fresh photo shoot.
Here’s a photo I shot for a Norwegian newspaper during a violent demonstration in Oslo, Norway. Notice that one of the police officers are holding his shield upwards to protect him and the other officers against the rock that is flying through the air and is about to hit.
I found the Photo Challenge this week to be very challenging, because I had too many ideas and too many photos to choose from (luxury problem). After having opted out a bunch of photos, I ended up with these photos shot at a secret location somewhere in Midgard (Miðgarðr as it is called in Old Norse. Meaning Middle-Earth, the home of the humans). What you see on these photos is the most common, or most known, example of the optical phenomenon called dispersion:
Last week I accidentally discovered something called Weekly Photo challenge, which resulted in a post with a picture of a girl at the market in Jerusalem. Since my epiphany last week I’ve been looking forward to the next challenge.
Here’s a photo of a girl I captured at the market in Jerusalem. The market is known as the Shouk Mahne Yehuda, or just HaShouk (the shouk – the market). The poem I chose is written by american poet Shel Siverstein (September 25, 1930 – May 9/10, 1999). Continue reading
