Kystens Perle has tiny olive plants in the windows. The building in the background is part of the airport. We are that close, sitting in a 300 year old building.

I know artificial light can do wonders for images. I see many examples. But it just doesn’t interest me in the least. I don’t even have a flash other than what’s built into the camera – and I always forget to use it even though I know I can turn down the volume. I guess it’s just more interesting to me to work with what is there. Perhaps when I have learned enough by studying natural light I will feel like adding some.

On a day in March my husband, daughter and I went for coffee at Kystens Perle (the son stayed at home by his computer :-)). The café is situated in a building from 1749 within sight of the Copenhagen Airport and a five minute walk from the new aquarium, The Blue Planet.

I brought my camera along to practice with my still new 50 mm. prime lense (a lense where you can’t zoom). All images in this series were shot with this 50 mm. 1.8G lens, natural light only.
