Photo Galleries

Although photography isn’t my trade I think my verbose insight into Norwegian life needs some color. Rather than pretending to know how to work a fancy camera, I just turn on the HD setting on my iPhone 4 and try to capture what I see. If there’s any aspect of Oslo you’d like to get a glimpse of, feel free to leave a comment.

FINALLY, THERE’S A CROWD IN NORWAY

There is one day of the year that people pour into the streets and the train stations are as busy as a normal weekday afternoon on London’s Oxford Circus: May 17, Norway’s vigorously celebrated National Day.

LOCAL CHRISTMAS MARKET THE START OF A HOLIDAY TRADITION

My trip to the julemarked last year was a desperate attempt to enjoy the holidays at the tail end of an exhausting international move so this year, I spent an afternoon wandering from booth to booth to see all of the quirky things for sale.

A SUNNY DAY ON THE SEASIDE

A crisp afternoon in Oslo inspired me to take a walk along the boardwalk. The area, called Aker Brygge, is a major tourist attraction but before it was invaded by high-end eateries and shops, it was a shipyard.

LET’S TAKE A WALK

Ready for a tour of my neighborhood? I live in Majorstua which is in central Oslo, just north of the seaside. My street is off of one of the bigger shopping lanes in the city called Bogstadveien.
