Norway lost in Strasbourg today: https://hudoc.echr.coe.int/eng#{%22languageisocode%22:[%22ENG%22],%22documentcollectionid2%22:[%22JUDGMENTS%22],%22itemid%22:[%22001-195909%22]}

One of the best walls I've seen “live”, showing people peeking out behind the blinds:

It is located on the left hand side of the tracks right before you arrive at Drammen train station from Oslo.

A warm reflection of the sun. Summer is more or less over it seems. The air is chill, which I appreciate.

Still I enjoyed the warm reflection of sunlight enough to take a couple of steps backwards to take a photo and verify that yes, the reflection wasn't only visible but also warm.

Was out walking this morning. It is a new habit I'm trying: to leave the house and walk for a few minutes to wake myself up.

Took this picture of a memorial over local people who died fighting nazism. And in light of recent events where hateful people think they can become heros by shooting innocent people: I think we need to fix how we teach history. At least we should make sure they learn to hate nazism.

The municipal election is coming up.

I find it weird: these are not the people we are going to vote for, and free lunches for schoolchildren is not something that will be decided locally on a municipal level.

I blame it on media.

Moose that crossed the road in front of us, One is grazing the other is watching us.

Not very relevant, I just came to think of it last week when I was crossing Norway in car and saw a number of moose next to the road.

Also it was taken with my old Canon IXUS camera that I dug out the other day and repaired.
