New toy and new shoes

My old Canon EOS 400D had to be repaired, so I bought myself a new toy:

I also bought myself some comfortable new shoes:

I'm going to London with my sister tomorrow. See you guys later!


1st birthday.

On Wednesday we celebrated this little young boy's first birthday.

He had his crown and sailor suit on and got to eat a whole bun


Midsummer Night's Dream

Oh, how I wish I could celebrate Midsummer's Eve with flowers in my hair, dancing all night around a magnificent bonfire on a green meadow...





2 weeks and 1 midnight in Paris

Two weeks of the summer holliday has flown by. I've been ill, read four books and one graphic novel. I've worked six days, watched about four movies and twenty episodes of a tv-series. I've bought myself four travelbooks, borrowed two and been planning next years interrail. Most importantly: I've fled Oslo for a while and is now home with family and friends. Today I went to see Midnight in Paris, and I really enjoyed it. Paris and the 20's, what is not to like? It had it's faults, but I loved the cinematography, the mood, the music, the humour and all the references.


Inspiration #4

Horst P. Horst
He is one of the most long lasting fashion and portrait photographers in the industry, with a career spanning sixty years. He has been my favorite photographer for a while now. As you can see, I had a hard time choosing only some of my favorite pictures. Most of them are from horstphorst.com, while I can't remember where I found the rest.
