Gone sailing

The sailing bit of Musto Millet Ski Yachting took place in Oslo today.  I went out with my local sailing club.
The wind disappeared after two races, though. But I love the reflections so I didn't really mind.

I think the light is really beautiful when it shines through dark clouds.

Window Reflections

This is another mix of showroom dummies and shoppers. I try to find a street where the sun shines straight in. The sun should not be at an angle so that the shop window is lit, but it is okay if the shops across the street are lit up. I position myself so that the sun lights up the faces of the passers-by. In the top image this is not the case but it is in the second one - you can see the difference.

An additional bonus is when the manequins are lit by lamps so that they are well visible through the reflection.

Oslo from Above

Norway is sort of closed from Wednesday through Monday for the Easter Holiday. But I have a friend who  worked overtime in an empty office. And she let me come for a visit with my camera.
