bringebaerdrops My maternal grandma B. in Oslo 1936, age 23. B. was born in 1913 and raised by the fjords on the north-west coast, but lived some years in Oslo before she got married. She worked for a dentist and his family on Frogner. Here she was cought on film by a random street photographer in front of the royal palace, doing some errands and walking the dentists dog, Ali, that was so spoiled he only ate if he was fed with a wooden spoon.
Grandma was always stylish and loved to sing. Her husband, my Grandpa, was a fisherman and was out on the sea for months, while she was home raising 3 kids all on her own. Every summer vacation we went to live with them, in their house by the fjord. Grandma was always full of stories, memories, songs, love and laughter. She managed herself at home, to the very end.

She died in August 2013, just days before her 100th birthday on the 19th of September, in her own bed, in the same room as her husband died in, years before her.

bringebaerdrops I finally retired my blog on Wordpress and for the first time in 8 years I don't have a photo blog anymore. Feels kind of strange, but relieving. Will only post photos on IG (for daily stuff) and Flickr (for "highlights" and analogues) from now on. Link in profile. 1w

bringebaerdrops Editing, editing, editing... And so satisfying getting the Holga rolls back and seeing that you actually got something. (Anything at all.) Nice addition to the digital ones. 3w
