Sagene Kirke

Here's the first pic I posted to Flickr that is taken with my shiny new D80. It's taken a couple of days after I got it, only minutes after I left home.

I am especially happy with it due to the difficult lighting conditions.

The D80 is an amazing tool of photography, and I can see a lot of the features coming in handy.

My two next wants for photography are a new lens, the Nikon 18-70 mm one, a beautiful, tight piece of machinery, and a flash, probably the Nikon SB 600.

New toy

My parents returned from the U.S. yesterday, and at my request they'd visited a shop called 42nd street photo in New York where they'd got me a new toy, namely a new DSLR camera house, the Nikon D80. First impressions are amazing, it's got the Nikon touch and feel, and seems a very sturdy and well-built camera. I'll try it out, and I am looking forward to two things, first having a new toy, and second having the possibility to carry two SLR cameras when I go photowandering!

A Vacation to remember

This summer my girlfriend and I have driven around Norway, nearly 2000 kilometres, to visit three cities, Trondheim, Ålesund and Bergen, all of which are places where friends and family of ours live.

Many hours on the road, and many happy memories later, we are now back in Oslo. One of the best things about the trip was Metallica.

Metallica's only concert in Scandinavia this year was in Bergen, at Koengen. An hours' worth of refreshing the box office website paid off in one of the most amazing pieces of musical fun I have experienced.

Metallica is a vibrant band that simply oozes of energy and fun. Great stuff!
