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

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)

People at Thorvaldsen Museum

thorvaldsen museet - meetup

And a museum, an exhibition or a similar place are perfect places to shoot this kind of photos. Their attention is well far away from the photographer, and the faces, the bodies are relaxed and natural.

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).

Oysters pickers

13-1159r41

Few weeks between October and November are the best period for collecting oysters in the North Sea. On low tide, one can pick the clams with bare hands, having few hours before the sea level raises again. In 2011 we went in Mandø, a small island by the west coast of Jylland, in Denmark, connected . . . → Read More: Oysters pickers

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
