Oslo – Sentrum

Som dere vet er 17 Mai – dagen idag – vår nasjonaldag?! En nasjonaldag som vanligvis feieres med pomp og prakt og med kilometerlange barnetog med hundrevis av orkestere
bemannet med barn/ungdom – dog med enkelte unntak!
I disse tider er Norge – som de fleste land verdene over rammet av corona-viruset og – årets barnetog er for første gang avlyst! Hvem hadde noen gang tenkt seg muligheten av at noe slikt kunne skje?  Og – siden våre gater ville ha vært mer eller mindre tomme dersom jeg hadde reist inn til Oslo for å lage en reportasje, så bruker jeg isteden en reportasje jeg laget for flere år siden, laget på en tidlig søndags morgen hvor trafikk og forstyrrende momenter var minimal. Slik ser jo antagelig byen ut også idag? Så jeg blir hjemme, men bildene kan dere jo få en gang til? 🙂
Selve Nasjonal-festen finner du her:

As you may know, today – May 17th – is our ‘National Day’. A day of unlimited celebrations and with children parade several miles long including hundreds of brass bands, with a few exceptions manned by children and youths of all ages!
These days the Corona Epidemic sweeps our world and for the first time ever, the children parade is actually canceled! Who had ever imagined that something like that could ever happen? And. since our streets would have been more or less emptied had I traveled to Oslo for making a photo report, I have chosen to re-blog this old report with pictures from an early Sunday morning in Oslo! This report was made years ago and the time was picked to find a time where I could move through the city concentrating on my camera and not on the traffic. This is most likely how the city would have looked today as well?
So – I will remain at home, but of course, you may have theses pictures once more!
But you will need to click on this link:

The National day celebrations may be seen here;

See Norway - Se Norge

Da har tiden kommet, da jeg vil invitere dere på en liten spasertur i Oslo Centrum.
Det å fotografere en storby i 16:9-format viste seg å by på en del utfordringer og ikke så få problemer, men jeg tror jeg har funnet en løsning dere alle kan leve med? Og en metode som vil la dere sitte igjen med et inntrykk av hvordan det kan være å rusle rundt i Oslo’s gater en søndag formiddag?
Jeg håper dere har en kanne med kaffe i nærheten? Den kan komme godt med!

The time has come to invite you all to participate in a stroll through the streets of Oslo on sunny Sunday.  To photograph a city like Oslo in 16:9-format proved to be a challenge and also offered a few surprises underway, but when it comes down to it, I hope that I have landed on a solution that will leave…

    Wow what a neat old building!

    • Seenorway says:

      Which one did you have in mind? In that report there must be dozens of buildings?
      The first one (white) called Victoria Terrace has a history from 2. World War! But it was erected way earlier than the war.

    It’s sad you can’t celebrate your country’s special day! Happy National Norway Day! Stay safe and healthy!

    • Seenorway says:

      But we did and in a lot of ingenious ways! What disappoints me today is that I also gave you all another link that led to another report taken on May 17th, and – as far as I can see – nobody at all visited that particular post!

    Digital travel, Sue, is one of the cheapest things you may get these days! 🙂

    Happy National Norway Day! I shall check your Oslo post out, now that I have been I might recognise some pictures. It is sad you cannot celebrate and don’t have these parades. Sure there will be programmes on TC to celebrate at home. Different , but necessary. Keep well Svein.

  5. Thank you Svein, and wishing you a Happy National Day… Yes who would have thought in such a short space of time the world could change so drastically..
    will follow your links and see happier times.. ❤
    Take care of yourself..
    Sending Love and well wishes from the UK.. ❤
