Today I went out for a photo-walk in my lunch. It was crazy, but it was like coming from one world to another world in a minute. Today it was Ed (Id), one of the muslims holy feast. I didn´t know that when I went out, but it was so many beautiful people out there in colorful clothes. I went to Grønland, the place in Oslo where it is most muslims, and the street was full of happy people. Self I am a Christian, but I got very fascinate of this people, and I asked some if I could take portraits. The man with the two kids, knocked me on the shoulder and asked if I could take a portrait of them. Of course I did. And the ladies and the children I asked.
It´s really a challenge for me, go out there to another culture in my own town that I not are used to. I think everyone should do this, start talking with people who not necessery is like you. I think of the prayer to Fritz Perls the grounder of Gestalt:
I do my thing and you do your thing
I am not in this world to
live up to your expectations,
and you are not in this world to
live up to mine.
You are you
and I am I
and if by chance we find each other,
I think this prayer is meant to live in peace for all people.
