A Saturday Afternoon at the Café Viking

Café Viking, Nørrebro (Copenhagen), a couple of years ago.

An ordinary danish bodega, smoky and cosy, people playing billiards, others chat, drinking beer. A not-so-ordinary Saturday afternoon, because it was the first after the gang who threatened the area was put to an end. The two ladies who own the café exposed the gang . . . → Read More: A Saturday Afternoon at the Café Viking

Dominoes in Copenhagen (1. aug 2013)

Dominoes 2013

1st August 2013, 7000 60cm tall plaster bricks in downtown Copenhagen, placed some fifty centimenters apart.

Four thirty p.m.: the first brick falls down, pushing the second, and then the third, and… All the domino bricks fall, one after another. Silently (surprising silently!), and rather slowly.

It took some thirty minutes in total . . . → Read More: Dominoes in Copenhagen (1. aug 2013)

Graffiti in Enghave Brygge

graffiti in Enghave Brygge

Few weeks ago, I went out to take some photos with others, and we ended in a former industrial area here in Copenhagen (now waiting for new buildings as a living quartier). It’s completely in ruins, and the survived walls are covered in graffiti, some of which still in progress. I took some photos . . . → Read More: Graffiti in Enghave Brygge

Thorvaldsen Museum in Copenhagen

I’m not really interested in that style, but statues and reliefs are . . . → Read More: Thorvaldsen Museum in Copenhagen

sculpture by the sea 2011

After two years, the Summer 2011 carried in Århus the “Sculpture by the Sea“, a rather big open-air exhibition of modern art on the strand south of the city centre. And like two years before, I went and took some photos (HERE the post from 2009).

Many handworks were well blended in the landscape, creating . . . → Read More: “Sculpture by the sea” – art in Århus (2011 edition)

Burned and rusted

04-1258r05

A burned car, in a relatively hidden parking lot. Maybe parked there after a robbery, one thief helping the wounded one to a further car, another moving the sacks full of cash and the driver spreading gasoline on the stolen car. A match, and they run away. The police patrol arrives too late, together with . . . → Read More: Burned and rusted

Back in the harbour

03-1060r86

Guilvinec is a small fishing village, in Bretagne. It counts two and half thousand souls, and the largest artisanal fishing harbour in France (the third considering the industrial ones), with 130 fishing ships. The village itself has no peculiarity (except for a good microbrewery), but around five o’clock in the afternoon one can see . . . → Read More: Back in the harbour
