Footbridges inauguration in Copenhagen

1501r36

Today was the inauguration day for Transgravsbro and the Proviantbro, after a long waiting. They link Papirøen (where lays the Copenhagen Street Food) to the rest of the area, namely Christianshavn and the path to Operaen. For the most important one (the link to Nyhavn and downtown Copenhagen), we have to wait three other months.

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

Majestic Mærsk (Mærsk Triple E Class) – A giant

Majestic Mærsk

NOTE: Other photos are HERE in the portfolio.

Huge. The Majestic-Mærsk, a 400m-long container ship on display, docked in Copenhagen for a week since yesterday. The longest ship in activity. The first of twenty, that will enrich the Mærsk fleet in the next years (one year for the first ten).

There was a good weather, . . . → Read More: Majestic Mærsk (Mærsk Triple E Class) – A giant

On top of ARoS – Your Rainbow Panorama

Some three weeks ago, Fra and I spent a long weekend in Århus for meeting our friends, after many monthes since the last trip. We had almost all Monday free before the ferry back to Sjælland, and we decided to visit ARoS, the Museum of Modern Art in Århus. Eventually, since we never went while . . . → Read More: On top of ARoS – Your Rainbow Panorama

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)

“The New Copenhagen” – a book I made

New_CPH-2013-Cover

“Amager, Ørestad, Fisketorvet, Sømærk, Sydhavnen, Dybbølsbro, Holmen… Copenhagen is evolving. Fast. Former factories are abandoned for relatively short time, and then replaced with new, modern and sometimes futuristic buildings. Construction sites are a constant in the city landscape, these days. And since it’s a rather small city, all these areas are close to the . . . → Read More: “The New Copenhagen” – a book I made

Sandwich Tern in Sjælland

03-1330r34

I like terns. I like their way of flying, with fast and precise dives into the sea. I found the Sandwich tern somehow more fascinating, with its yellow-tipped black bill. It’s not common, and I saw some of them only a couple of times in the very north Jylland, on the beach near Skagen.

So, . . . → Read More: Sandwich Tern in Sjælland
