Usually when you need to take public transportation you think about subway, tramway or busses. In Oslo it’s a little bit different as boats are part of the public transportation network. For the price of a bus ticket you can make a small cruise in the Oslo bay in a boat that goes from island to island (this is one of the few cheap things to do in Oslo).

As usual, the light was really beautiful and the contrast between the colorful houses, the deep blue sea, the low sun and the sky allows to shoot some cool pictures.

The architecture of this building is really amazing and is now a trademark of Oslo’s landscape. There are so many compostions to try, each perspective of the building makes it unique, the light can change the place dramatically. I wish I would have tried some long exposures too (maybe next time ?)…

Like in every big city I visit, I try to go to a Modern Art Museum. We went to the Astrup Fearnley Museum. We were really lucky because a few days after our visit the Damien Hirst Exhibition closed, and knowing I missed it would have been a huge regret.

I was lucky enough to be able to see the famous “For The Love of God” piece. It’s truly a remarquable piece of art that must be seen at least once in your life. You enter in this pitch black room and in the middle you can see this skull with thousands of diamonds on it, fully lit. I have never seen something shine like this in my entire life. When you walk around the diamonds sparkle around depending how the lights hit them. It’s unbelievable. You are not allowed to take pictures of the skull but I think it is impossible to give justice to this piece of art with a picture.

Beside this highlight we also some pieces from Jeff Koons, Richard Prince, Robert Gobert, Felix Gonzalez-Torres and Charles Ray.
