Just One Person From Around the World: Oslo, Norway

Welcome to Just One Person From Around the World!

I have stopped watching the news….I have dropped all social media, except for my blog, which I try to keep to positive vibes…. there are a lot of folks in the world, who are everyday folks, just trying to provide food and shelter and love……….they are trying to make a living…….keep their kids educated and basically just take care of their families, without an agenda.  Me too. I think there is more of us…. Just trying to live our lives….. So, I would like to take the time to focus on one person a week to bring us together, to celebrate ordinary folks.

Feel free to join Just One Person From Around the World  by creating your own post and then share your link in the comments. I hope this will bring us all together and reveal how connected we are…………even though we are each in our own little world!

Today we are in Oslo, Norway!

The bright orange-red hat caught my attention first. Then the shoes………and then I was scurrying to try to get in front of this person to get a better photo………but it was not to be…….

I was drawn to the snappy colors from head to toe! (this is a happy person), and then the steady gate and confidence.  I pictured an academic of some sort…….notebook and tablet in hand, coming from the university, stopping for coffee on the way home…. or maybe a fashion designer! What do you think? This person definitely put a smile on my face!

    1. IJK, are you saying that cameras have preset filters in them to make skin colors lighter automatically because they think most people that buy them are lighter skinned and it is one less adjustment to make? Who would have thought? So do you correct the skin color on all your photos? Is this done on cell phones as well? I have never noticed the difference………Cady
      PS this photo from Oslo was taken in August, 2019…..


      1. Its worse than that. If you photograph dark skinned people, the details are smudgy. More so with a smart phone. I do have to try to correct the photo each and every time.

    2. Wow! I never would have thought this!

      1. Artificial intelligence = creator’s bias, unfortunately


      2. I remembered that I had written about this in more detail once. Here is the link, in case you are interested: https://anotherglobaleater.wordpress.com/tag/smart-phone/


  2. I felt this person is a confident and colourful.
    From the appearance ( back side view),I felt the person is trim and never misses the gym schedule.
    Back view clicks sometimes confuse me whether the person is a boy or girl.

    Lovely street photography my friend.

    1. Ah Ha! You were the first to say anything! My husband and I had a disagreement about this photo as well! I said it was a photo of a man and he said it was a woman….. I said it couldn’t be a woman, where was her purse? A woman most ALWAYS carries a purse of some kind……This person had a cell phone and a computer and notebook tucked under one arm……a man! Who knows!

    Oh, what a shame you couldn’t get in front! But great image…. Here’s my portrait for today: https://suejudd.com/2021/03/03/just-one-person-from-around-the-world-turkey-2/


    1. She has calm written all over her face doesn’t she? I didn’t know what “catchlights in her eyes” were until I looked at the second photo…..very interesting Sue! I am glad you offered us both photos because they show us two different types of photos! Well done! Cady
      PS I thought it would have ruined the scene for the photo if I had taken it from the front! They would have been so startled and probably mad as well!

    I wouldn’t have taken a photo from in front. I like the matching gentleman to her right 🙂 🙂 Lots of shares here! I’ll have to come back later.

    1. Yes, I picked up on the color combo too! What are you up to today? Cady


      1. restlessjo says:

        Washing, t’ai chi, lunch and just come back from a walk round the salt marshes. Time for a cuppa 🤗💕


      2. Good for you! T’ai chi, very good……I need a walk around the salt marshes or anything today!


    1. Strong looking Warrior Jeri! I always notice folks with perfect looking teeth! I wonder if it has something to do with his diet? Cady

    1. Oh, this looks like so much fun! This is another sport my husband would do, while I sat on the boat, or even better on the shore! Cady


      1. I loved it Cady! It was amazing to see the land from up there

    1. I can’t pass flower stalls by anywhere, can you? It’s kinda my idea of the perfect job. That and working in a coffee shop or bookshop……or maybe a combo; coffee, flower, bookshop! Perfect!
      Thanks for joining us again today! Cady

    Also a brave one. Anyone who can sport a red hat like that and red trousers has got to be full of confidence and spirit. She’d get my vote any day.


    1. My thoughts exactly!


  8. Very snazzy! And lots of other reds (bag behind her, shirt in front of her, vehicles, etc) framing her.

    That’s quite a hat, no wonder you followed it! Here’s my contribution for this week: https://www.toonsarah-travels.blog/an-encounter-in-zurich-a-person-with-a-passion/

    1. Passing crossroads with a person like this is meant to be! How very interesting and exuberant Alex Hansen must have been! Aren’t these frescoes beautiful! I would now like to know more about Paul Bodmer! I would have stayed all day and Alex would have been tired of me! Cady

    This is such a wonderful idea to connect us in a positive and very real way all around the world.

    Reminds me of another jaunty individual I spied on the bus this morning – what initially caught my eye was her glitter-studded mask; followed by her bowler hat (very unusual to see anyone wearing a hat in Singapore), and then her glitzy hi-cut shoes. She, too, made me smile.

    Between us we seem to get around the globe: I’m still in India, with a builder this time: https://margaret21.com/2021/03/04/builders-at-work/


    1. Is all that grassy stuff (the grey-brown color to the right) a wall? Are they replacing that with brick? Has Pondicherry retained their French quarter do you think? Thank you for adding this to the challenge this week. I feel like I travel around the world every week now!, don’t you? Cady


    1. He just wants to be at the beach! Great focus there! Thanks for joining us this week! Cady
