The Little Mermaid statue is one of Copenhagen’s landmarks. It is located a bit of a distance outside the center, along the waterfront and near a beautiful park. Tourists flock to see it, and often you cannot get a good picture of the statue without a bunch of other tourists in the way. People are often disappointed in how little the statue is.
It’s been about two months since my last post. I had a very busy but good two months. Now things have calmed down and I am happy to be able to blog again 🙂
This family was sitting on a hill in Hoboken looked across the Hudson at the Lower Manhattan skyline. I had these exact edits in mind when I took this picture. I tried to get as much silhouette as I could through the camera, using a small f/22 aperture. In Photoshop I converted the photo to B&W and upped the contrast. I really like the result. It reminds me of a sketch.
My eye was drawn to this man sitting by the water at sunset, because he looked so contemplative. I find that the changing light of sunset soothes me, and in this peace comes room to think. I really enjoyed this sunset, and I had the time to because this was taken on vacation in Trieste, Italy.
Piran, Slovenia is a picturesque small town on the Adriatic coast. It’s main square is Tartini Square. The main sculpture in the square is of Giuseppe Tartini, a violinist from Piran. A statue on the edge of the square really caught my eye, however. It is of a boy reaching upwards with one hand, the other reaches into his chest where is heart is, but there is nothing there but a hole. The position of the statue captures movement and stress, and I found it moving.
