24 Hours in Oslo, Norway and Copenhagen, Denmark with the Sony A7ii | Travel Blog

Travel

While waiting for some wedding videos to render, I was going through folders on my desktop and found the “Oslo to Blog” folder from… April 2016. Sooooo yeah I’ve been meaning to share these photos for about a year now, and while I have some “free” time letting the computer do it’s thing with a wedding video, I might as well throw together this quick blog post! Two blog posts in a row that are not Indian weddings, craziness! At least the last blog post was a wedding. this one is just pure travel photos. Last year our “big trip” was heading over to Europe to see London, however I snuck out early thanks to Betty being consistently amazing, and was able to solo backpack through Oslo, down to Paris, and then over to London to meet up with her and Miles a few days later. Jumping on a cheap Norwegian flight from JFK in New York City, I was in Oslo before I knew it and had 24 hours to explore before grabbing a train down to Copenhagen, Denmark and then on to Paris, France. Being Winter still, I missed all of the greenery around Oslo, and it was super overcast that day, so I tried my best to see some of the sights in a single day, while carrying a week’s worth of clothes and a camera in my backpack. All photos taken with my Sony A7ii, the only camera I brought on this trip as I was really cramming everything clothes and all into my backpack! Here’s my first half day in Oslo, where I visited the Vigeland Museum, which was the top rated thing to do on Tripadvisor. Oh look, sculptures in the park… wait a minute…

Part of the reason for choosing Oslo as a destination, besides the cheap tickets, was the chance to experience some of those European railways. I loooove the trains in New York, so I had to try it here as well! I spent a whole day on the train, heading out from Oslo we stopped in Gothenburg, Sweden before heading to Malmo and finally Copenhagen. Pretty peaceful trip, looking out the window at the coast, with a slight detour when we had to switch trains for some reason and even was on a bus for a while heading between train stations in Sweden. After the mini off-train adventure (which I didn’t take many photos of just shuffled from place to place), we arrived in Copenhagen! I had a few hours to burn before taking my flight to Paris, so with everything on my back still (love my Osprey pack), I walked a few hours around the city and then headed to my next flight down to Paris!

Yes, I ended up flying Norwegian again down to Paris, those prices can’t be beat even buying air tickets the same day! I actually cut my trip up North shorter than originally planned due to the crummy weather also so that I could spend more time in Paris instead. Germany, I’ll catch you next time! And as for the rest of the photos from this trip to Paris and London, well you’ll have to catch those next time as well!

Manhattanhenge 2016 Times Square NYC
Manhattanhenge 2016 in Times Square, New York City
This year's second Manhattanhenge took place last night, July 11th, and I was actually in town not traveling for a wedding like the first time it happened this year! I happened to also have a quick meeting with a bride in New York City yesterday for her upcoming destination Indian wedding, so it worked out perfectly to hang around NYC for a few extra hours to catch the sunset! With the sunset only lasting a few minutes, I didn't have enough time to walk to a second location in the city like 34th street, which also seemed like it would produce a pretty cool photo based on some quick location scouting earlier in the day due to it bei ...

2013 Travel Photography Year in Review
In the attempt to write some new content on the blog while I'm in the middle of editing a million weddings - here are some travel photos from 2013! Looking back, some of these I never blogged before for whatever reason, probably too busy shooting weddings of course :). I started 2013 off in Sydney, Australia for Natasha and Karim's wedding on January 1st, and then stopped by Tokyo and Saitama, Japan on the way back to shoot some time-lapse. In July Betty and I traveled to Istanbul, Turkey so that she could attend a professional conference. In Turkey we stayed after the conference for a few days and traveled to central Turkey to see the Cappad ...
