COPENHAGEN CHRONICLES III























































































"If Copenhagen were a person,
that person would be
generous, 
beautiful,
elderly,
but with a flair.
A human being
that has certain propensities
for quarrelling,
filled with imagination
and with an appetite for the new
and with respect for the old -
somebody who takes good care
of things and people."
- Connie Nielsen








2 & 11  Fil de Fer 

3 & 8  Inside the Marble Church


12 Staircase leading to The Apartment




(All places I can warmly recommend
the next time you're in town.)

  1. Kuvat ja Nielsenin teksti komppaavat keskenään,hän puki tunnelman sanoiksi.Ja tuo vanhan kunnioittaminen ja into uuteen,pähkinänkuoressa viisautta. Oijoi,taas sä sen teit!Sä oot kyllä taitava tunteiden tulkki,kiitos ja kumarrus! Voimaannuttava piipahdus täällä taas....

    1. Kiitos Anu niin paljon!
      Yllättävän vähän on Kööpenhaminasta "sanottu",
      tai ainakaan ei ole mulla tullut vastaan.
      Laitoin joulutoivelistalle pienessä vesterbrolaisessa kirjakaupassa
      näkemäni kirjan Copenhagen Tales,
      joka on kokoelma tanskalaiskirjailijoiden novelleja Kööpenhaminasta.
      Ajattelin, josko pääsisi vähän raaputtamaan pintaa syvemmältä
      ja näkemään kaupunkia paikallisten silmin.
      Kööpenhamina on mielestäni myös kaiken designin ja trendikkyyden lisäksi
      tummia sävyjä ja kulahtaneita pintoja...
      joista vaikkapa Astier de Villatte voisi hyvin loihtia kaupungille nimikkotuoksun :)

  3. .. and then this ..

    *sigh*

    i’ve had such a pull to go to copenhagen lately.
    and i’ve lost count how many times i’ve said
    things like "i think you’d really like copenhagen!"
    and "i wish we would’ve just gone before the bump
    got too big".. *smiles* .. and here you are, filling up
    my senses, - & relieving some of that longing with
    your stunning photographs and the gorgeous lyrics..

    so glad there was you with my afternoon cup of
    cardamon café au lait. thank you, darling you..!

    1. thank you sweetie...
      Copenhagen always has me staring with admiration
      at all those gorgeous kids with their blond curls
      being carted around in those lovely big prams
      and Christiania bikes, comfortably tucked in with gorgeous blankets...
      You'll *have* to go when le bump has arrived!
      I completely understand the lust,
      & I was vowing my next time would be sooner,
      there are more layers to peel off...

      sending you&le bump a big hug, x

It makes me happy
when you leave a trace

- whether it's a single word
or you scribble all over.
