The light was good today, so in spite of the cold we ventured out to do some photography. We stopped at an old park with a lovely lake. The swans and ducks looked cold, but many people were out with their dogs.

The Wren

In Denmark It is still miserably cold and it looks as if is going to continue. Luckily in our parts we
have escaped the snow, whilst other parts have been hit badly.
About half an hour ago I stood looking at the birds in the garden when this little Wren came along spending a good time on a rose bush.

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.

The sanctity of the church

Yesterday we went to Copenhagen to photograph in one of the better known churches. It is domed like St Pauls in London, but much smaller. I like to play with shallow depth of field and bokeh. Here is the result. I find the pews very photogenic.

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

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. Ørsted. 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

Christmas in Tivoli Gardens

We went to Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen. The second oldest theme park in the world. Close to a 180 years. We felt that the Christmas theme was not as good as previous years so I concentrated on the decorations on the trees

A winter afternoon

Lately I have had great fun playing with Bokeh. My 50mm f1.4 mounted on my D750 deliver satisfactory results.



I have had a Lensbaby lying around for several years. The other day I mounted it on my D750 and went into town to play around with it. Good fun, i must try some more.
