Journey to Norway through snap shots, part 1
I took so many photos while we were in Norway I’ve had to just start at the beginning and do it in smaller instalments. Choosing between them all is hard, editing is time consuming. I tried not to have my face covered by a camera as much as I could so as the title suggest the images are quick snap shots, simple recordings of some of the things we experienced. I’ve chosen to not look at which images will go in the 365 for this period for now, so there’s bound to be some double ups at a later date.
As always I am guilty of being terrible at taking photos of landscape and scenery, and things that do not include Anakin. (It’s the whole image maker versus image taker thing again.) But I think our 1500 photos from 3 weeks still covered the vital bits. Of course, most of the landscape photos I really needed and actually did take, I managed to lose in some faulty transfer (or in a moment of not paying proper attention). oh well. Anyways, here is the first instalment! I hope you enjoy it!
After going straight from the airport to a family birthday we were all pretty beat. I was in excruciating pain from a tooth that decided to go from bad to horrible the day before we left, and I hadn’t slept since before we left Melbourne. I do not recommend ever flying with a tooth ache. The next day, after I had gone to the dentist for an emergency root canal, we escaped to my partner’s family cabin by a lake in the woods for the weekend. It was rainy and cold, but we loved it. With us came two of our oldest and very best friends.
It was a weekend of the good, the great and the difficult. Dealing with a jet lagged kid out of his routine was tough and challenging. The first few days in Norway Anakin went through a phase of total rejection of me and my partner during daytime except for when things got desperate. Nighttime was all about me, all the time. Our plans to catch fish were washed away by the rain, but we thoroughly enjoyed our time there, although it was far too short.
Stay tuned as our journey continues! In the meantime I’ll try to check in with some more 365 and other bits if I find the time.
