This next week is going to be quite crazy for me. I don’t think I will be able to stay much on the blog sphere and keep the contact. But I promise I will soon be back. On Tuesday I will fly out from Seattle to go to Oslo to teach a seminar for the NGO Norwegian Refugee Council. The organization has invited press and information officers from their offices all over the world. My good colleague and friend Øystein Mikalsen (with whom I often work together with – and do the blog Untold Stories together with) and I will be teaching the art of storytelling with words, still photos and video. Then on Saturday I will head back to Seattle – only to fly back to Bergen, Norway the week after that again. I said crazy, didn’t I?! Anyway I want to leave you with a handful of more spring pictures taken in the same spirit as the post I wrote last week. I have just continued being playful and having fun.

    Ciao, Patrizia

  25. Otto, your images are wonderful! They put a great big silly smile on my face from ear to ear. I must say, I needed that. Hopefully, I will be caught up on some of your posts by the time you return. Safe travels, My Friend. 🙂

    Abstract spring colors 🙂 I like them. It looks like you next will be so busy. Have fun, Otto.

  28. My Heartsong says:

    great colours and motion! Happy trails!

  29. shoreacres says:

    Safe travels, Otto. The photos are marvelous: similar technique, but quite different results. They’re as much fun to look at as I suspect they were to capture.

  30. Enjoy your travels. I love the creativity in these images.

    A delightful approach to Spring, Otto

    Beautiful spring flowers! Really gets me in the mood to head outside.

  36. Susan says:

    oh my, I’m tired after reading your schedule! Enjoy and safe travels. Phenomenal images, a brilliant take on spring and what a gorgeous array of color!

  37. You really have a lot of energy, Otto, and I am more and more thankful for all your precious time you put at disposal for your community showing marvellous pictures like these, which somehow transport me into another world.

  38. I am exhausted reading your schedule!! These are magnificent photos, perfect touch.

  39. Cool shots Otto. Take care and have fun!

  40. Hope your trip goes well! Oh my, attending that seminar would be a dream come true for me: “the art of storytelling with words, still photos and video.” Perhaps someday. I hope the people who do attend realize the amazing opportunity they have!

  41. Otto, I love your playfulness with this post. Your creativity with photography never ceases to amaze me. Lovely!

  42. greenlakeblue says:

    Hi Otto, love the visual effects and colours here. Well done!
