I’m always happy when a photo combines different qualities of light – The Metro prismens of Copenhagen, Kongens Nytorv, against the christmas trees and the golden sign on the building in the background.
Shaftbury Avenue – and just a tip, if you get to London during Christmas make sure you also photograph at Covent Garden. I only had time for a crowded, hurried walk-through with kids, but the place looked spectacular.
Right at the beginning of December I had the chance to spend an hour trying to capture the Christmas lights in Copenhagen. I admit that they are fairly modest but I also think there is a beauty to the understatement.
I’m not done with our trip to Ireland yet – not by half. But Christmas shots are going to look too out of place too far into January. So I’ve decided to be merry and celebrate the holiday for a while here on my blog – enjoy!
What I love most of all about Christmas is the lights. Here in Denmark it turns dark at 4 p.m. now and the sun doesn’t rise until 8 a.m. Maybe that explains my affiniation for Christmas lights and it has been especially fun this year to photograph them. This shot is from Strøget – the main shopping / pedestrian street of Copenhagen. I’ve just returned from London and see that our puny decorations must suffer from low self esteem but it’s what we’ve got. There will be some shots from London later on as well.
