There was a Black Lives Matter protest at the Parliament building --- Stortinget --- in Oslo on June 5th, this Friday last, which I rather unexpectedly found myself participating in. Having come into town for errands, I had no clue beforehand that anything was going on, and got caught up in the crowd on my... Continue Reading →
Radiant fantasies, colours of magic, wickerworks of wind and water vapour and whatnot, and you have yourself a sky full of wonder.
That hour, when the evening light of the approaching sunset fills the sky, and the world is floating in a lake of shadow. Headed for the place between the blue and gold, where the road goes on forever, into a brief but endless moment as it slowly fades to grey. A friend recently lost her... Continue Reading →
Click on the image to view larger version on Flickr. El Teide, Tenerife, 2004. As far as I can recall, this is the highest I've ever been without the aid of an actual airplane, and definitely the first and so far only time I've ever been in or on a volcano. The peak, which towers... Continue Reading →
Random sighting of two ancient communication enclosures in Manchester, England, shortly prior to the Great Continental Exodus of the early Third Millennium, CE. Click to view larger version on Flickr ~ · ~“That belongs in a museum!”— Dr. Henry Jones, Jr.~ · ~ The apparent likeness to similarly sized and shaped portable enclosures for personal...

Older photo from the back archives. Click image for a larger view on Flickr.com “I … was … here.” A temporary signature, on a slightly less temporary canvas, by a temporary being, in a slightly less temporary world. None of this is permanent. Photography is about capturing moments, as, if or when they happen. Mostly... Continue Reading →
Click the image to view larger version on Flickr. Lysaker Station. “I'm going towards the light!” Just to get on the train, mind you. It's not like my life is passing before my eyes, it's just that I prefer if my train doesn't. Originally intended for black and white, but I included a colour version... Continue Reading →
*stares in Crow* Click on the image to see bigger version on Flickr. I somehow get the feeling that this bird disapproves of something I've done. Like, taking his picture, or posting him on the Interwebs without first asking him for permission. Or for just being there to be looked disapprovingly at. There's nothing quite... Continue Reading →
You may click images to see larger versions on Flickr. Also on Instagram, Flickr, Facebook. Someone said something about turtles … and I don't get it. These two should probably get a room, though. Seriously, they were kissing the place up, like, really totally crazy. Also I did both a colour and a black and... Continue Reading →
Click image to view on Flickr. Incidentally that's my brother's electric bass — and if you're now looking around for a sparkly fish in the picture, then you have entirely the wrong idea. I went for the “inverse traffic light” colour sequence; green at the top, yellow in the middle, and red at the bottom,... Continue Reading →
Click image for larger version, or here to view on Flickr. I have absolutely no idea where this came from, or whose motherboard it is, or was, as the case may be. I can only assume that someone misunderstood about core training, and took her CPU cycles out for a spin. Sadly it seems the... Continue Reading →
Click image for larger version on Flickr. Viking burial mound at Borrehaugene. This is from Easter Friday. There are more than 25 of these mounds, more or less unevenly distributed around an area which is not only vibrating with ancient history, but also well suited for nice, comfortable walks in the warm and sunny spring...

Four Sphere Chairs in Four Squares. Not to be confused with FourSquare™, although that one's also about getting … around? This post is also published on my home page. But surely you've already noticed by now that they're really all variations of the the same picture of the same chair, taken with the same camera,... Continue Reading →
I've seen Men In Black! I know that this there thing is a spaceship, manned by a bug in an Edgar suit. Or a lamppost in the middle of a roundabout. The somewhat taller version below here is just to cater to the more vertically inclined of my viewers. It's actually pretty tall. I'm not... Continue Reading →
If you you have the courage to faithfully follow the signs which you encounter throughout your life, you will eventually discover… well, where you end up. For now, it's this way!
"Why are you so fascinated by those stars? What's so special about them?""They're not stars, they're worlds."Venus (bright) and Jupiter (faint) together on the left, second and fifth rock from the Sun, respectively (though use of the word "rock" to describe a gas giant may be considered criminally incorrect); the first one brighter and closer than...

So last night while out driving I saw one of the prettiest sights I've seen in the sky: the half moon shining pale and yellow through a thin and wavy veil of clouds, illuminating them like a frosted glass landscape from within, and flanked on its left side, barely a fist's width distant, by the...

My sister's cat, Plym, being his own, orange, furry self. Plymothy looking his most absolurably adorbsable in backlight. ~ With eyes a-closed and fur a-glow, Plymothy naps in the window. ~ (Shot in RAW format with iPhone SE and edited on iPad using the Lightroom Mobile app.)
The angel of spring, tiny as he is, slowly but tirelessly, digging his way, inch by inch, out of what's left of winter. It's been a long, cold wait.
Monday Morning Sleepy Sunrise Revealing the Red Eye of the East. January 8th, 2018, at a quarter to nine. Technical: Shot in RAW and edited on iPhone SE using Lightroom Mobile.
You may or may not have noticed the current Facebook trend, which revolves around posting a black and white photo of, well, anything you like, every day for seven days, one photo per day, and with each photo you will challenge or nominate someone else to do the same. Everyday B&W Photo. “Seven days, seven... Continue Reading →
The evening of August 27, 2016, was scheduled to feature the conjunction of the planets Venus and Jupiter shortly after sunset, a marvellous mere ½ degree apart, the same as the apparent diameter of the Moon, which is pretty darn close in a big, big sky. That's a must-see in my book! As a last... Continue Reading →
Moons have many names. Blue Moons and Harvest Moons, and Blood Moons and Hunter Moons — but they all tend to be full moons. This is the Second-Last-Night-Of-July Moon of 2016, and behold, it's not even half. As for what I was doing out on the balcony taking pictures of the moon at four o'clock... Continue Reading →
I've no idea where this apple comes from. It could be locally grown here in Norway, but then again it might as easily have been picked in an orchard in Spain or Argentina, or anywhere else for all I know, and transported halfway across the world to end up in my hand. (I'm making a... Continue Reading →
I have a one hour bus ride home from work, and yes, the windows today were pretty dirty. That didn't matter much, because there was something of a fog as well. Now, fogs can be amazing, as they do all sorts of things to your surroundings, from artful to downright spooky. Then again, they can... Continue Reading →
