It’s the World’s Live Ballet Day and our royal ballet sent a “live” scene from the “Giselle” production. The ballet master Nicolaj Hübbe instructed two male solo dancers in their part in one of the acts. The studio is small and is the place where many famous ballets were created under the roof of the theatre. When my parents […]
My father kept a key behind a small picture painted by Matisse. It was the second key to the door from the cellar and out. We always got into our house that way. The first key sat in the lock inside the door. The extra key was used when the family went to bed at night. Did you lock the […]

A few came to our gathering for the first time and memories from the time as 16-19 years old comes up to the surface.

Nyboder is a very nostalgic place for me to visit. I am reminded of history and people lived there in small flats with many children. Among them my grandmother more than a hundred years ago.
29th of August 2015 the façade and window of this famous radio shop was inaugurated as a museum site with changing exhibitions from the Danish resistance movement during WWII. The shop was in the western part of Central Copenhagen and that whole area became known for their united front against the German oppressors. The photo in the middle is from […]
Trying to match the assignment of the 101 photo course. This new bridge in Copenhagen helps pedestrians and bicyclists quickly to move about in the inner Copenhagen. In daylight it’s even more beautiful. I am looking forward to go try it on a rented bicycle later in the spring and summer. It’s situated at the harbor just opposite the Royal Library called”The […]
