I met Oslo Fjord’s Crazy Man


A waterside walk in Oslo kept my finger busy on my camera shutter, but I did find time for a chat with a friendly local who was about to sail across to his house boat.  I learned about the frustrations of living off shore in winter and found that this man’s slightly wild reaction to an icy day was captured on video by someone on a passing ferry.  As a result of this instant fame the police came out to remove him from the water and he became known as the Crazy Man of Oslo Fjord.

You can watch the video here, but it is rather distant and fuzzy.
