Spring

Although I find something favorable about every season, spring brings out a special feeling for me. I don’t know if it is the return of daylight, the change to a warmer temperature or all the flowers and trees that are awaken and blossoms, that bring out this feeling. The combination maybe? Or the sence of new beginnings, starring over?20120417-230415.jpg

Do you have a favorite season, and if so what makes it your favorite?

Meet Swiffer…

…the charming little fellow I’m “babysitting”:

Swiffer likes to cuddle, but only on his terms (he is a cat after all).

He is up all night and sleeps most of the day.

Swiffer enjoys having an overview, the higher the better!

And the best part, coming home to someone sitting in the window waiting for you!

Do you have any pets?

Just Add Color

I walk around a lot. Taking it all in. Looking for pretty things that I just have to capture. Lock in. Save for later.

After trees, my favorite thing to photograph is houses. Especially the colorful ones.

Picturing what it is like living there. Making up stories about the people living there now. What are they like? Are they happy there?

One day I see myself living in a house with a lot of charm and history. With a magnificent backyard, where a grand old tree is decorated with light bulbs and a swing. What’s your dream-house like?

A Sunny Sunday in Oslo

The weather this weekend has been amazing. Today my only plan was GET OUT & ENJOY THE SUN, so I grabbed my boyfriend and went out for a long walk to the Harbour of Oslo and back. Here are some photos:

On My Way Home

February is cold and windy. Snowy. Days are getting longer, the warmth from the sun is slowly returning.

Occationally I challenge the cold weather, and walk home from work.

20120210-171932.jpg

The walk takes 20 minutes, but I usually use more time, taking pictures, admiring the scenary, feeling the wind to my face, breathing in the fresh air.

Tough days for the ducks. I guess I’m not the only one looking forward to spring time.
