I’ve been challenged by Julita Wozny to post black & white photos for the up-coming five days. Yay!

In return I nominate Joe Towey 😀

Joe, in order to take this challenge, you must post B&W photography for the next five days, and each day nominate another photographer to enter the challenge. Good luck!

entering the dark season

I’ve been consumed with work lately. Written like that it might seem dreary for people who don’t enjoy their work, but for me: It’s WONDERFUL!

I only wish the days were longer… while they’re literally getting shorter. Høstjevndøgn in Norway falls on 23. September. It’s when the day and night are equally long. (Called equinox in English, according to Google Translate.)

And on the Thursday closest to this date, a magical event finds place to remind us that the dark season is full of light.

More about this event – yeah, #2lazy2write

:-OSLO

The bliss

Oslo these days is like: sun OFF, sun ON, sun off and on. But no matter the weather, it’s eternal sunshine in my mind (this week).

I finally have a job, you see ^_______^

So for at least ten months, I will not be whining about being an unemployed journalist. Be glad you’ll never see some of my post drafts from last year published; they all start with an account of a quite fortunate and privileged girl’s struggles in the Real World of Adults.     Which could have been interesting musings, if the girl writing them didn’t happen to be the least inspiring person on the planet when she’s pitying herself.

Now it’s in the past. I’m working and living in Oslo. Life is good.

And this is my new neighborhood:

Happy Pride!

Oslo was the host city for EuroPride 2014, which ends today. Milli was there OFC.

It was cold yesterday, but the colourful Pride Parade through Oslo made it a cheerful and gay Saturday.

I love the idea of celebrating diversity. Hooray for the brave and daring! #lovemoves

Best job ever – is how I would describe working for Fame (fashion boutique in Årnes, Norway) during the… (how can I translate it?) the Days of Årnes! A fun fair comes to town, all shops arrange sales and artists entertain in all of Årnes’ pubs and clubs (there are 3 of them in total).

Fun fun fun! Most shoppers didn’t mind being photographed. The sun was shining. I got so many new treasures that only thinking about my new outfits makes me smiiiiile 😀 😀

FYI: I grew up in Årnes, but haven’t been there the last 2-3 years. Can you imagine the joy of spotting “old” classmates across the street? Although, most either didn’t recognize me, or couldn’t be bothered to raise their hand to wave. Go figure.
