Finally back in a BERLIN after a beautiful month in NORWAY. Berlin looks amazing all wrapped in yellow, red and orange leaves ..and it feel sooo goooood not to be living in suitcase anymore, and it feels amazing to be back in our own apartment. Always when I come back to Berlin from Norway my suitcase is heavier than when I left; filled with different FOOD I miss and CLOTHES I've picked up from boxes at my parents or E's parents house ( and for some reason always something from H&M.. even though we have tons of H&M stores in Berlin and the clothes are cheaper here.. I always end up buying something when I'm home, anyway.)This time my suitcase was extra full because I brought back two winter/fall jackets; one was a second hand CAPE (the cape that I'm wearing in these pictures) and the other one was a second hand FUR coat. The cape is my SISTERS, we found it at UFF in OSLO once when she visited me when I lived there. It's a children's cape but it works perfectly for autumn when you don't need to wear that much under. I love capes and have earlier posted pictures of both me and my sister in capes; here; and here ..and here :) The FUR coat I am borrowing from ARJA, and I will post pictures of that one later. Have a nice autumn day!

It's funny to see how I on my trips to NORWAY tend to take more pictures of the NATURE than I do when I'm in BERLIN. I guess I just appreciate and notice it more now that I don't see it that often. This picture is taken not far from my parents' house in a tiny little forrest area where I used to play as a child. This place often reoccurs in my dreams so I find it nice to walk by there whenever I'm home. This picture was taken on my way to the bus when I suddenly saw this beautiful 'sun after rain' light that I wanted to capture. One thing can be said for rain: the sky is often really beautiful when it stops and the weather is shifting.

Picture from today's WALK with CHARLOTTE and JACOB. Beautiful NATURE, stunning SUN and the best company. Will post some more pictures later:) ..and for those who are wondering why I have not been posting that often lately .. the reason is that there has not been that much to photograph.. or at least it hasn't felt like it ..maybe I just have to get used to not being as spoiled with the light as I have been all summer..

Visited ARJAs new apartment the other day and fell in love with this LAMP. When I asked her she told me she bought it for 25 norwegian kroner (3 euro) (!!) ..at FRETEX ..when she lived in TROMSØ ..there is no doubt; the truly good second hand buys you find outside the big cities. Ah, I just love this lamp, and I by the way only saw it in daylight ..and Arja could tell me that it was even more beautiful at night because it casts really stunning yellow light.

This wednesday I went to INGVILD ØSTGÅRDS release party/concert here in OSLO. The release was a 7 SONG LIVE SESSIN that she recorded on the 9th of April this year at URBAN SOUND STUDIOS (beautiful video recording from the studio recording here) I had not heard INGVILDS music live in a long time (we used to live together in OSLO and then I would get free sneak peaks into her musical world all the time) so it was amazing to hear and see how her music had developed during these last years. The recording is not available on CD, but at the release it was possible to buy online download instructions for the recording. The instructions came on a card together with two postcards, all designed by Ingvild (she is also a graphic designer with her own company 'I MADE IT') ..and the photos are by LINN MELUM. The songs are also available on iTUNES. I took some pictures at the concert that I will post later today:)
