HUMLEBÆK DENMARK – We went to Louisiana today (the modern art museum, not the state). I find this place irresistible. It’s sited on a commanding hill overlooking the Øresund Sound, which separate Denmark and Sweden. There was an exhibit of Yoko Ono’s work that I ignored, preferring to be outside on a perfect day. This is a mini gallery of work from the day (the first in an office in Copenhagen, the balance at Louisiana), all taken with my Leica Monochrom and 50mm Summicron lens. I’ve edited this overly long post to include some iPhone images from our dinner at Noma, ranked this year as the second best restaurant in the world (I’ll post reactions to it in due course).

COPENHAGEN – Another dullish day. I went to Tivoli but found it less charming than I remembered, a bit tawdry actually. I’m sure that there’s a lot to photograph here but I’m not finding it. In my wanderings to and from I ended up taking a solo person and a colonnade, topics that I’ve covered endlessly for as long as I’ve been shooting (starting with my grand tour of Europe in the 1970s and most recently here yesterday and in Paris two days ago). I was in Tivoli then then so maybe the association triggered these images in the style of À la recherche du temps perdu. With my Leica Monocrom and 50mm Summicron Asph., three frames stitched in the case of the solo man.
