Oslo by day

Day 2
Oslo, Norway

Just to clarify, I'm well and truly back in Canberra now, almost two weeks. I'm being a bit old-fashioned, sharing the photos and stories from my trip after the fact. I didn't take a laptop with me, and while I was away I favoured photography & sightseeing (or sleep) over internet time.
So, just one night and one day in Oslo. We had work meetings in the morning and free time after lunch. Everyone was keen to see Vigeland Sculpture Park so we all went there together and spent a while there. It is a fascinating place, all the sculptures are by the same artist (Gustav Vigeland) yet with some variety of themes and styles. Later we wandered off in smaller groups until we had to meet in the late afternoon to catch our train to Sweden.
I had an excellent afternoon's walk through the city with a friend, with a peek in a shop or two but mostly just strolling and taking photos. There are more of my Oslo photos in the Oslo Flickr set.

I love the expression on the woman in the front of the sculpture. I love sculpture garderns. The large pieces of art are wonderous to me.

That must have been quite a sight, the scuplture gardens.

Thanks for sharing your trip!
