When you were little, did you avoid the crack to not “break your mother’s back”? Moving to America, I didn’t fully understand that that was just a rhyme, and was genuinely scared of hurting my mom. Thankfully I figured it out fairly quickly, and went on my merry way. Good thing too, because with streets paved with cobblestone everywhere you turn, Europe is not really the best place to put that particular rhyme to the test.
On my walk around the city one day, I happened to actually see this monstrous statue outside the harbor. I must’ve passed it dozens of times before I actually saw it. I don’t know what made me stop that one time, but I got a cool shot out of it!
What do you pass everyday that you don’t notice until that one special day? Take note of it 🙂
Sunset is one of my favorite times of day. As a photographer, it has the “magic hour” when the light is as naturally perfect for photographing as it will ever be. But for me it has always been nice to wind down to a beautiful scenery, a wonderful backdrop to cap of a wonderful day.
This was taken on the coast of Denmark in Helsingør at the Kronborg castle. It inspired Shakespeare and was featured as Elsinore in Hamlet. This part of Denmark’s coast is a scant 4 km from Sweden, hence the placement of the castle, when these two countries were sworn enemies. I was told that if you go underwater, you can see proof of the warring factions through the mounds of cannonballs along the floor of the sea. As technology got progressively better, the cannonballs were able to go a further distance. But those that didn’t make it are still at the bottom of the ocean as small mounds of cannonballs slowly inching to the opposite coast.
Soccer is a blast! I’ve loved it since I was little. But I hate running, and I’m just not a good soccer player. Regardless, I have fun watching through my camera lens! Especially when I have really nice voluntary models 🙂
There are canals EVERYWHERE in Venice. Obviously, it’s a city made of islands that just happen to be really close to one another. It’s quite picturesque, especially with the sun peeking through the buildings.
The Black Diamond Library looks out over the harbor in Copenhagen. The building is incredibly striking because, you guessed it, it is a gleaming black structure in the shape of a three-dimensional diamond. This was taken as I was leaving after a long day of studying before finals during my semester abroad.
