Oslo today. A dull day with Scottish rain. No snow. No snow yet in this winter country! They tell us we shall have some snow tomorrow. That will be good for the children who want to be outdoor skiing and playing.
I took this picture in the Royal Garden when passing through on my way down town. I intended to take some pictures of the new Munch Museum that is being built. But my bad legs would not carry me all the way there. However, the weather was not very good for photography anyway…

I Hegdehaugsveien, mllom Oscarsgate og Josefinegate, ligger et lite bokantikvariat. Jeg går ofte i strøket og har lagt merke til at det er så fullt med bøker der nå at bøkene snart går ut på gata! Her er den hyggelige innehaveren utenfor butikken, sammen med flere kasser med bøker. Er du på jakt etter ei bestemt bok, skal du forsøke her.

The church in my picture is the oldest building in Oslo that is in its original condition. It is called Gamle Aker Kirke, and lies on the hilltop behind the very picturesque small houses in Telthusbakken. The painter Edvard Munch painted this scenery, see links.

Da jeg våknet en morgen og gikk inn i stua, ble jag vàr noe på balkongen min. En rovfugl satt på rekkverket. Jeg hentet kameraet og listet meg så nær at jeg fikk dette bildet! Jeg har aldri sett den sitte på noen annen balkong enn på vår, det kan nesten virke som om den visste at jeg var fotointeressert og ville posere for meg!
Dette var en spurvehauk som går under navnet Slottsparkhauken. Den jakter i hele området rundt her, og da den en dag hadde tatt en due på fortauet utenfor soveromsvinduet mitt i Pilestredet, kunne folk spasere forbi den uten at den var redd.
When I woke up one morning some years ago, I discovered a bird of prey sitting onn my balcony rail! I fetched my camera and managed this shot of the beautiful bird. It is known around here, and has got a name, the Hawk of the Palace Garden. It is a Sparrow Hawk, I believe, but I have only seen it hunt down pigeons.
I have never seen it on any other balcony here, I almost felt that it was posing for me, being interested in both birds and photography 🙂

My Kurilian Bobtail has shortened his visits outside in our backyard, since the temperature is now close to 0 C.
