10 on 10 August

After 2 months break from the blog roll I'm back with 10 photos from my summer vacation. We were away for 6 weeks all together. First stop was Paris, then Copenhagen, and ended the trip with a quick stop in New York before returning to Mill Valley. It has been really hard to only select 10 images for this 10 on 10, but I like the challenge. 

Remember to klick through the rest of the blog roll, next stop after me is: Kristina Rust 

 

While we were in Paris a heat wave hit the city, and it was hard to stay cool. We walked by a patisserie that had put up a gardenhose, so people could cool down, and I loved the action and the photos I was able to get.

Many people has sealed their love with locks on Pont des Arts crossing the Seine. In May 2010 the city of Paris expressed concern over the growing number of love-locks on the Bridge and the locks were moved to another location.

While waiting for my good friend Sidse at a Metro station in Copenhagen, I was reminded how staying in one place for more than 1 minute, makes great photos. This is taken with a iPhone 6S.

Nyhavn in the center of Copenhagen. I used to live here when I was 20, and this is where Eric and I meet back in 1993.

This photo is taken on Møn, a small island where my brother has a summer house. We took the girls and their cousin Nicola for a walk, and the 3 of them started playing on these huge hay bales, a true joy for the photographer.

One very quiet evening on Møn. The colors was just amazing, something I really miss in California. Colors like this you only get in Denmark at summer time.

Evening swim in Taarbæk where I grow up, and where my mom still lives. Again the colors are fabulous and my new Leica Q and I loved it.

New York - 3rd and last stop on our vacation. I could walk around for months in this city with my camera, and just shoot. But when I travel with my family I have to go with the flow, which dosen't give me many minutes in one place. This shoot happened right outside our hotel in SoHo.

Again a fast shot as we are walking through SoHo. Loved how the colors match each other.

This was one of the photos that I really hoped to be able to shoot while we where in NYC. The Manhattan Bridge when the sun is setting.

10 on 10 January

Beginning of this year I have joined a photo group/project called: 10 on 10. It means I have to post 10 photos on the 10th each month, and link to another person in the group. (Link to Kelly Buss here)

January is going to be photos from our trip to New York. At the bottom you can get the whole story on my Exposure page. I hope you enjoy. Klik on the photos to see them in full size.

 

 

New Year in New York

4 day's in New York is not very long, but when it's during December and the weather is COLD, it's okay. There where even things we had to skip, because we didn't have enough time. No doubt we loved the Soho area the best, with all the small streets, shops, cafés

When it's cold outside and you walk everywhere, I think you make some decisions you wouldn't normally make. One we made was to visit The New Museum where we saw a very interesting and beautiful light installation. And another day we visit American Museum on Natural History. Here you can learn about dinosaurs, planets, and much more, a very interesting place.

Iconic buildings and places in NY. I would have loved to walk around for hours, just me and my camera. It's not really possible when you travel with your family. Here are just a few and bonus one of me and Eric.
