In passing

While the hairdresser beautified my wife, I walked around in our little town playing with my Nikon D750. I have had it for about a year, but I have still got a lot to learn about it. Among the things I tried was the manual setting. The last time I tried that was, with my Nikon D700, several years ago in London. It may well have been my imagination, but I could swear that I got better results that way. I set the camera back to aperture priority (my normal setting) and wandered about photographing streets, buildings and people. Close to the station I came across this scene. Back home I converted it to black and white and quite liked the result. At one stage I was very keen on street photography with people in the picture. NO MORE. I believe, that the photographer can tell strong and compelling stories about people by showing where they live or lived and the artefacts they have left behind. Still I liked this on, so I am sharing it here

A cold day in Copenhagen

It was cold in Copenhagen the other day. The benches on the City Square were deserted, but the pigeons made good use of warm air from a ventilation shaft
Camera Nikon D750

Power

Lately I have been catching the train to Copenhagen. It beats battling the traffic on the roads and searching for parking. Coming out of Copenhagen central station is a comglamoration of rail tracks. In the background is the power station named after the Danish discoverer of Electro Magnitism H. C. ├śrsted. It was here in 1956
The IL-14 operated on an international Aeroflot passenger service from Moscow-Vnukovo (VKO) to Copenhagen (CPH), Denmark with an en route stop at Riga (RIX). Impacted a chimney and crashed into the southern harbour of Copenhagen killing all 23 people on board.
The light was very special so I quickly snapped a picture through the train window
