Esbjerg 3, 2014

As you can probably see it was both cold and windy on Dec. 25. this Christmas. It was great to get out of grandma’s house for a bit though and snap away. Even if our fingers felt┬ámore like popsicles at the end.

Men at Sea

Esbjerg on the west coast of Denmark hosts this amazing work of art – Mennesket ved havet or, in English, Men at Sea.

Determined to at least attempt to create a photograph to do them justice, I was disappointed to see the cloud cover on my way there. I didn’t know then that the sun would break through the clouds, high lighting the statues from the side. And how could I guess that a visitor would turn up in a yellow trench coat.
