Today’s paper

In the tunnel under the local train line are boxes with free papers. Someone had scattered them liberally around. O well someone will clean it up.

The collector

He was reasonably nicely dressed. He did not look as if he was in any special need. I just think that he followed the maxim “waste not want not” So he carefully checked the dustbins for returnable bottles.

Been shopping

She walked out of the shop. She was old and bent and struggling along pulling her trolley. As I often do when I see people like that, I wondered about her background. What was she going back to? A lonely flat, a frail husband? Did she have adult children to support her?
or grandchildren to bring light into her life. We are daily surrounded by so many fates, some sad some happy. Behind me a homeless was lying on the wet pavement in an alcoholic sleep a couple of empty bottles next to him. Life moved on

The Backyard

My expensive photo gear has been collecting dust. My life has been occupied by other things. The other day I did a short walk in Copenhagen. I do like to take pictures of backyards. I call it “empty Street photography” often the artefacts left by people speaks more of people than pictures of them. It gives the imagination free reign.
I know that many will insist that there must be people in street photos. Let them think what they like. Most of the pictures by one of the early street photographers Eugen Aget had no people in them, but speaks volumes.

On the beach

The island of Bornholm is situated in the cold southern Baltic. In spite of that Figs and Mulberries thrive there. It is a wonderful place with endless white beaches, shear rocky cliffs, forests and green fields. We try to spend time there when possible. On his day we walked down to one of the beaches. As often happens the sea was glinting and the cloud formations were very dramatic.

The Snake

Last week we met with my son and Daugther in law at Fisketorvet “The Fishmarket for cake and coffee. Fisketorvet is a large shopping centre surrounded by modern office buildings. Through it all runs “The Snake” a specially build cycle path. Always very photogenic.
