Nature Day 2, Amager Beach 2014

Karin Ott

On this Sunday several local organisations were hosting a nature event by the beach. Yesterday’s image showed a young girl all eager to collect stones on the beach and talk about them afterwards. Reality was it was hard for me to find anyone to photograph at all as it had been pouring down all morning.

I had dragged my own daughter along but she was not about to go collect any stones. Instead one of the sweet volunteers showed her a game with stones even my mother played when she was a child.

The 8 House 8, Copenhagen 2014

The lines of the building itself, The 8 House, are clean. All patios are designed the same and the same trees and green are planted. But they can’t keep people living here from displaying colourful plastic furniture.

The idea behind the 8 House is for it to function like a mountain village with houses perched on the hill sides and paths for people to walk through the village. I’ve been following the project from before they finished building it and have posted quite a few images by now of the clean and, to me, beautiful lines of the building. From tomorrow I’ll be sharing some images of what real life looks like at the 8 House.

Winter in Denmark 9, 2013

On a fortunate morning in February, there was frost on the ground and fog in the air. I couldn’t get the kids to school fast enough, threw my camera in my car, and headed straight for the beach. I was hoping the fog would hold and it did. This is from the lawn behind the marina by the beach. The round doughnut looking things are orange benches.
