A Copenhagen Street

I spend much time looking at the old photographer’s pictures from the fifties and earlier. Many of grey and gritty streets with children playing and mothers chatting. What most of them have in common, is the almost total absence of cars. I have spent much time in Copenhagen and other European cities photographing in the streets and every street of interest was choked with cars. The other day my son and I went into Copenhagen and came across this short stretch of street. It just had to be photographed.

Deep in the forest

I again ventured into the forest to photograph mushrooms. There were a variety to be seen. I especially noticed one kind, that I later identified as the “Deathcap” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amanita_phalloides. According to the news there is an unusual large number of these this year. After lots of bending and kneeling, I got a number of acceptable pictures. The tilting screen on my camera came in very useful for photographing at low angles.
this group particularly appealed to me. I feel that it speaks so well of the autumn forest.

Autumn

After a long and extremely hot and dry summer, autumn is now upon us. After more than three months without a drop of rain clouds gathered and the ground soaked up the precious drops.
Autumn is here and autumn is mushroom time. We took the car for a short drive to a good mushroom spot in the forest. We had no sooner entered the forest, when we could smell mushrooms. Close by on a tree stump was the largest gathering of huge mushrooms I have ever seen.

 

High on a hill

The day began with a clear blue sky much welcome after days of rain. it seemed a good day for a drive into the countryside. Before long clouds appeared, creating dramatic views over the the landscape. we set course for this old windmill perched on a hill in the otherwise flat country. we finished our drive with tea at a lovely lake.

Flowers for Mummy

It was a busy Saturday morning in our little town. The streets were filled with stalls of various kinds, staffed with people promoting a multitude of things. This little lady was helping Daddy carrying flowers home for mummy.

A time to play

It was Saturday and our little town was full of activity. All of the political parties and many of the voluntary organisations such as Red cross, Save The Children, The Heart Foundation, etc etc, had set up stalls and were canvassing for their cause. There were also a number of clubs helping to the fill the street. The main street was packed with people. This little lad had obviously decided to take a break and sat quietly playing with some toy. He looked content and concentrated.

Copenhagen Central Station

I like photographing at stations. They are so full og geometric shapes. I like the shining rails curving away from the platform, knowing that they stretch continuously to so many cities and towns. I enjoy seeing the arriving and departing passengers and their different personalities.
