copenhagen dreaming

i wonder if i appreciate copenhagen even more now that we moved to the other side of the country or if it just had on its best face (aside from that freak thunder/hail storm just as i wanted to get out of the car) on tuesday when i was there for meetings. happily, one of them was on this gorgeous little charming street (sankt peders stræde), where i went a little nuts with both digital and analog cameras.

no boring chairs in this country and no boring lamps.
i so wish i'd had one of these bikes when sabin was little. why didn't we ever get one?
i love the mix of shabby and gentrified.
that stormy sky hadn't completely passed yet, as you can see.
i want a shop like that! one off - so you just make what you want and feel inspired to do.
they take their flags very seriously. 
such a fetching scene. made me wish my city bike was a little more retro.
happy weekend to one and all, even if your path doesn't cross copenhagen, at least you've had a little taste.

Your photography is amazing. I love the way buildings are all different colours in parts of Europe - I think the Netherlands and Scandinavia is the same?

Copenhagen portrait as an exotic place, fantastic. It makes you forget about the grey, grim and the ugly.

Looks like a wonderful place to get lost in for awhile.

Great photos, and this little street really reminds me of Krakow's medieval corners...

Have you used presets in LightRoom to enhance your photos here? I've signed up for a month long intensive digital photography course in July and I hope it will help me understand nuts and bolts of camera and lightroom and help me find my inspiration again.

I've been there as well, and it was excellent fodder for the photographer in me. Even the paving surfaces were lovely.

The foodie in me loved the fresh-made waffle cones down the street from the second photo - I hope you got one too!

I love that bicycle, I wish mie was like that.
