Copenhagen

Copenhagen is where I live, and so, I end up taking a lot of photos of the city. Photographers often talk about how their home city is boring, and definitely contains nothing that’s worth taking photos of. If only we could go somewhere else!

This is obviously wrong; the key is to look closer. I find new things to photograph every time I go for a walk, with or without my camera.

The following four pictures were taken in December 2015, on a black-and-white walk (now there’s a way to see your city with fresh eyes: Set your camera to show you only black-and-white on the LCD). It was a crisp winter day, cloudy but dry, and I stayed out for hours and hours. I was on my own, feeling like a tiny creature in a huge world, and I think (and hope) that this came out in the photos.
