Sometimes when traveling I just want to have fun taking photos. A year ago I was n Copenhagen on business and I took an early morning walk. How could I resist as it was very foggy and that makes for some interesting images. While I had my big boy camera with me, I thought I would try some shots with Hipstamatic and the iPhone. How cool! This is one of those images of a woman walking through the square where the royal family lives. her red hair, the fog and the design in the bricks makes this shot work.
I love shooting in citys and I like to do what we photographers would call street photography. I shot this image in Copenhagen walking the streets. I looked into a canal which I was walking along and the light and colors were creating amazing reflections. I took this shot after a Kayaker had just past and the water was still in a ripple effect. Almost like a painting.
Copenhagen as you know from reading my previous posts is one of my favorite cities to visit. So much to do, and some real good culture. I love shooting photos there. Christiania is a part of Copenhagen that was taken over by for lack of better words hippies many years ago. It was an old Army base that is now a counter culture area of the city. It is fun to visit and there is a lot of color. This image was made in the stairwell of one of the buildings leading up to a restaurant. I saw the window with graffiti and had to shoot it.
This has been a intense week in Denmark with a lot being accomplished business wise with Phase One. In between work I do find sometime to take pictures and I have quite a selection of colorful and nice images I am collecting. Copenhagen waterfront is a real nice place to visit. There are all sorts of boats and a unique charm and mix of building. Here is one classic shot a sailboat and a tugboat. Shot on an iPhone on the way to dinner.
I am still in Copenhagen. It has been a very busy and productive week so far. Almost done. Lots accomplished even some good photos. This one is reflections in the canal. Amazing what you can see after a few Danish beers.
There is this area in Copenhagen that in the old days used to be a rough area and typical of the wharfs of cities. But a while back this area was revitalized to be a popular destination. Known as Nyhaven it is a harbor where ships tie up. Now all the store fronts are restaurants and bars and outdoor cafes. It is a great place to visit, very colorful, in many ways and lots to do. I decided to try something new and get very creative. This is a different kind of view of Nyhaven. let me know what you think.
When it is nice – it is really nice in Copenhagen. Today was an extraordinary day. After a long flight I explored the city with a work colleague and then after a nap I went out shooting. This image I love. Little girl running excited about the fountain. You can read a lot into it. Shot with an iPhone hipstamatic.
I am off to Copenhagen today through JFK. I have a busy week doing a number of different things while in Denmark, I will be prepping the launch for the 2013 PODAS workshop series as well as meeting with internal depts. and some special customers. Should have some cool shots of Copenhagen to share along the way. This image was made in the Round Tower. A cool place to visit. Back in the old days the King made this so he could drive his carriage to the highest point in Copenhagen and view his kingdom. I have walked up this path to the top and all I can say is poor horse. I do love the light and how it plays with the walls and arches.
I travel a lot and one of my favorite things to do is to walk the city streets and do street photography. One of my favorite cities for doing this is Copenhagen. It’s a great city that is alive and offers amazing photo opps. This is a shot I made outside a store and shows their unique way of merchandising. I bet the sale they had was a big success. This is real block head marketing.
As I said in my last entry I was headed to Copenhagen. Well, I am in Copenhagen and I have been pretty slammed with meetings and such. A lot to cram into a week at Phase One. So, postings have been nonexistent but I will catch up. So, other than a mermaid sitting on a rock what other iconic places are there in Copenhagen? Tivoli of course.
It’s off to Copenhagen in a short time. I’ll be there for a week on business and may not have the chance to post as mush as I like. Thought I’d share an iconic Danish landmark shot on a foggy morning on a trip there last fall.
Well, I made it to Copenhagen today. Didn’t get bumped up to business class on this trip, so I rode with the folks in the back. Made it though, but tired and have been suffering all day to stay awake so I could get a real solid nights sleep and wake up on the new time some tomorrow. I’ll be at the Phase One offices for this week in meetings and doing planning for upcoming PODAS workshops. The week will go fast. To help alleviate my jet lag I took a photo walk about this afternoon. Cold day but the sun was peeking through the clouds so I got a few good images. Took a break halfway and enjoyed an Irish Coffee. Copenhagen is such a civilized city. This is a shot of the canal in Nyhavan, where there is usually a big party going on. The place in the summer is solid with people and outdoor cafes. Not today. I’ll have more Denmark pictures as the week goes forth.
