Halvandet – 2012

As I’m listing the photos chronologically here comes a glimpes of Halvandet on a sunny day. I caught my daughter while she busy getting to her next hide-and-seek spot.

Last picture in the Halvandet-series – and, of course, my favorite.

Just today I was standing at Amager Beach with a friend, pointing in the direction of tall chimneys and obvious signs of industry, telling her that this was where Halvandet was at. I don’t know how you would ever find this urban beach bar by coinsidence. You do pass it if you take a canal tour, but finding your way there in a car…?

A few rays of sun broke through the looming rain clouds.

Behind the cruise ship in the background is Langelinie, home of The Little Mermaid – and she really is small. Or dainty. From Halvandet you can also see The Marble Church, catch a glimpse of Amalienborg and sometimes of the royal yacht.

When I visited Halvandet a day in August the rain was pouring down as I drove there and I had to wait in the car for the rain to stop. The wind was fierce and this being an outdoor bar there were no customers there. A couple of days later, when the weather had cleared and the place was filled with people lounging in the sun, I returned – but the pictures I took on the windy and cloudy day were so much more interesting.
