Sculptures in Denmark

Recently, I went to Denmark, as you might have seen in my latest post about architecture. Instead of publishing pictures randomly, I have decided to gather them into themes, and here comes the second part – Sculptures!

Pictures were taken in Copenhagen, in the Glyptoteket, as well as in Louisiana Modern Art Museum. Again, I used the black and white setting from my camera. I have been using a Canon 500D for the past five years, and although I sometimes feel limited, I still enjoy it.

I don’t remember where this picture was taken exactly… But I remember loving the building.

This is a piece by Giacometti, in the amazing Louisiana museum.

This is a sculpture I found in the Botanical Garden of Copenhagen. All sculptures were related to Greek Olympics.

A close-up on The Age of Bronze by Rodin. The light was amazing. This was taken in the Glyptoteket.

I haven’t written the name of the piece or of the artist. Maybe someone will be able to tell me in comments. But again, I tried to play with lighting.

I still have some pictures to share, which I will do in the next few days. My next trip should be in the south of France, and then San Francisco in the summer. I am looking forward to it.

Architecture in Denmark

I was recently very lucky to accompany my pupils for a one-week school trip in Denmark. We got to visit many museums and places in Hillerød and Copenhagen. It also gave me the opportunity to take some new photographs, which I will share now.

First, let me start with some pictures of architecture. As you can see below, I have enjoyed taking black and white photographs.

This is a corridor in Louisiana, a modern art museum. This place is incredibly beautiful and the exhibitions were very interesting.

Somewhere near the main river, just on the other side of Christiniasborg.

This is another corridor, but outside. It was taken at the National History museum.

These are the stairs going down to the entrance of the Danish Architecture Centre, where I was lucky to see an incredible exhibition about young people developing ideas to preserve the planet.

The only photo in colours. This was taken at Nyhavn. It is so full of tourists and restaurants that I had troubles taking a good pictures of the colourful houses. The day after, we went on a boat trip and I seized the occasion for this amazing shot.

Iceland Road Trip – Water

No need to have a PhD in science to know that water comes in different forms. Iceland in the winter is the perfect place to find all forms, sometimes all gathered in the same place. Here is a selection of photographs that were taken during my road trip, in which water is the focal point.

Snow and liquid water in the same picture. It almost looks like a black and white photograph.

After our snorkeling session in Silfra, we walked in þingvellir, where the first Icelandic Parliament was set.

On the left is hidden Goðafoss, the Gods’ Waterfall. I already put a picture on my Instagram, so I decided to choose one of the river, as it flows in the snowy landscape.

I did some experiments with my camera. Here is a picture of ice. The grass stuck in the water somehow looks like a fish. Am I the only one to see that?

Jökulsarlon, where ice from the Vatnajökull derives into the ocean.

Vik, with its black sand covered with snow, and its sometimes dangerous waves crashing onto the beach.

Near Fluðir, we found an amazing hot pot, with a turf cabin to get changed. The spot was incredible, and because we went in the morning, we were alone there.

Iceland Road Trip – Roads

Well, it was a road trip. So I took photographs of some roads. Actually, I mainly took pictures of roads. But not so many are worth sharing.

I have made a selection of my favorite ones, which you can see now.

The last one is more like a path than a road, but I loved the story behing the place : Dverghamrar, the Dwarves Cliff. It is believed that a community of dwarves lives in this area, and the cliffs are actually basalt columns. It is really beautiful, and easy to find (South of Iceland, near Vik, next to Road 1).

Interrail – Architecture

Last April, I went to Canada, and still haven’t posted any picture. However, during summer, I went on a three-week trip across Europe, visiting some of the main cities in the western countries. I took so many pictures that it took me a long time to sort them out. Here are some of my favourite ones, related to architecture.

Boulogne-sur-Mer (Hometown)

I have shared on this blog many pictures of my trips in different places of Europe, but I realised I haven’t shared a lot of the city I come from : Boulogne-sur-Mer, located on the coast in the North of France. So, here we are !
