Impressions of Crete (September 2018)

On a recent trip to the greek island of Crete I had the chance to encounter some dramatic fall weather in the coastal town of Rethimno.

Below are some of the images I made. The images are part of a series I call “Impressions of Crete”.

The first image shows of the dramatic fall sky in Rethimno. I find it has a kind of dystopian atmosphere.

In the next image, it appears that Zeus is active in the background to this aptly named hotel.

The receeding footsteps and folded parasols drew me into this frame with the given background.

Impressions of Copenhagen (September 2018)

On a recent short trip to Copenhagen I was able to frame up some beautiful architecture.

Below are some of the images I made. The images are part of a series I call “Impressions of Copenhagen”.

The first image is from Industriens Hus (roughly “House of Industry”). A quite remarkable glass-facade house that has neon lights that animate during the dark hours.

The next two images are from the Blue Planet planetarium in Copenhagen. It is quite a beautiful exterior facade which in a way is more interesting, architecturally speaking, than the interior design and architecture. When framed without other elements and people, it has a surreal aesthetic.

Impressions of Barcelona (August 2018)

On a recent trip to Barcelona, I used the chance to frame up some architecture.

Below are some of the images I was able to make. The images are part of a series I call “Impressions of Barcelona”.

The first image presents a humble scene but it is perhaps my favourite. A plant stretches out as if to seek out light.

The Barcelona Cathedral is a beautiful architectural pearl in the intriguing Gothic quarter.

Catedral de la Santa Creu i Santa Eulàlia I
Impressions of Barcelona

This pyramidal structure is a wireframe-like sculpture from the Barcelona airport outside park area, which resides inside the airport compound. I kind the Barcelona airport overwhelming and beautiful to behold from the inside (and probably the outsides as well). It has been hard for me to frame up due to its overwhelming proportions though.

Another image presenting the Barcelona Cathedral from the scenic Gothic quarter.

I am not quite sure what this venue is called. I happend upon it by chance. It does have a very beautiful interior design and is definitely worth revisiting. There are many interesting angles and frames inside.

The below structure is a bank. It looked to be like a bridge across the sky. I find the clouds, glass and metal surface very appealing and abstract.

Inside the Barcelona Gothic quarter hides numerous atmospheric corners. Boutiques, cafés, restaurants and shops. As if a transforming maze, the places appear and disappear behind sheet metal facades, depending on day and hour of day. This particular clothing store oozed of atmosphere and had to be imaged in color.

Impressions of Budapest (April 2018)

During the easter of 2018, I went on a trip to Budapest. The first time there. The city has some fascinating architecture that is definitely worth revisiting.

Below are some of the images I was able to make. The images are part of a series I call “Impressions of Budapest”.

Impressions of Split (March 2018)

On a trip to Split in Croatia, I had a chance to encounter some of the beauty of the city and the region surrounding the city. The city itself is a UNESCO protected site.

The city itself is a wonder to behold. One understands why the location scout for Game of Thrones picked this city, along other places in Croatia.

The highlight of the trip was the Krka National Park though. It is truly marvelous and I am sure I will be revisiting it.

Below are some of the images I made. The images are part of a series I call “Impressions of Split”.

Architectural Cosmos

A couple of days ago I went on a small walk to see my new appartment. Whilst walking back with a friend I discovered beautiful reflections at the local university complex, which has wooden planks outside, right next to the sea. I only had my mobile phone on me and took several pictures.

I have titled the images according to the associations I get when I look at them together. ("Nebula" was taken elsewhere and on a earlier day).

In search of texture

These photographs were made on a day trip to the city Svendborg with 60 fellow photographers. Too many for my taste but it was a fun day.

On this trip I photographed some architecture but had quite a few photographs texture in the end. In particular of a colorful fishing boat.

The next perspective shows the lines and curves of the boat.

The last image of the boat shows the chain for the anchor.

The next photograph shows the rustic chains that were laying at the dock.

The final photograph is of two boats juxtaposed.
