Yellow Fortress

The Aker Brygge docks face the Akershus Fortress. The diners on the cold side of the wharf do not see the sunset, but its reflection on the stone walls of the building across the water.

Sidewalk Of Karl Johans in Oslo

Karl Johans gate is the street that runs from Oslo station through the centre of the city right up to the Royal Palace. It is rare to find it as vacant, but in these times it is wise to expect the unexpected.

The Mutiny of Democracy

If you wander around St Hanshaugen you’ll find many unique boutique stores in the most unsuspecting of places. One of my favourites is a little art gallery by Mytteriet av demokratiet. These guys make pop culture art pieces for the serious art collector. They are very welcoming and you can watch them create in the gallery.

Favourite Retro Street Art

Below Akershus Fortress along the docks there are various sculptures and street art works. This is one of my favourites – a poster-style formate, it resembles a retro magazine cover.

Graffiti Near the Homeless Hostel

Sometimes I walked past a Salvation Army homeless hostel in Grønland. The people hanging outside were as vibrant as the streets. The hostel is now gone, hopefully just moved, only the graffiti art remains.

Table Tennis in Grünerløkka

Outdoor Third Spaces are very popular in the summertime in Oslo. Especially on Saturdays, this table tennis park in trendy Grünerløkka, Oslo, is full of activity with people from all over the community coming together to play.
