Good and terrible news

Let’s begin with the bad: Something happened to my external memory disk #orwhatyoucallit and all the photos i have taken since easter, seem to be gOnE…

Good news: I’m returning to blogging, because I want to keep my memories somewhere safe. See this WordPress, I’m putting a lot of trust inn you! You better be around in 50 years.

An update is in order: I no longer live in Oslo. My new home lies 70 degrees north. It’s a wonderful and weird city, Alta.

Backyard Flower Spring Tradition

It has indeed become a tradition. I’m back in Oslo. Bumblebees are humming in the air. My favourite backyard smells like spring. I photograph the flowers. Just like last year >>

I’ve officially returned from Haiti. Back in business.

The adventure never ends.   –that’s what I tell myself

Some flowers are still waiting to bloom

Ah, spring

Parc La Visite – Haiti

This was shot in Parc National la Visite in Seguin. I visited the national park in Haiti last year too. The endemic forest in Seguin is magnificent. It’s one of the few areas in Haiti that still remain green.

It’s a fishy world!

Have you ever tried snorkeling? Was your craving for a waterproof camera only rivaled by the discomfort of seeing the foreign world under the sea?

Maybe it’s just me. I guess I’m a little afraid of fishes and everything underwater. Like, when I tried snorkelling in Egypt (ages ago): I was in a group following a guide, slightly nervous, sea animals are weird and I had never really given any thought to whose water I’ve been swimming in before. And then our guide goes ahead and digs out a bag of fish food from his swimming trunks, turning ALL THE FISHES’ ATTENTION TOWARD US!!

Puh, I’m still recovering. My recent encounter with fish was not anywhere near that frightful. The fishes were swimming peacefully in their enormous aquariums, with me on the other side of the glass, safe! With my camera 😀
