Fence the trash

We do have plenty of trashcans around, however a lot of trash still tend to end up in peculiar places, like behind fences. Oh well, now we know where it is, and it can not get away.

Apple blossom

This beautiful picture was taken this spring in our garden. Our appletree shows all it's might and beauty every spring with plenty of flowers. Here 6 months later we enjoy the fruit as a lot of fresh apples.

Switchbox ads

This switchbox controls the traffic lights. Often switchboxes are used for poster stands, too, although this is not legal. The bluish poster advertises for two Danish rap bands, Per V and Rent Mel.

Spot the dalmatian

The black and white pattern on the birch tree could easily serve as camouflage for a dalmatian(danish: dalmatiner). If you do spot it please tell me - I may know an optician looking for customers :-). The picture was shot a few days ago. Birch trees are very common in Denmark, and are often seen outside houses and in gardens.

Yellow Rose of Taastrup

Last summer I fiddled around with the macro function and took pictures of some flowers in the garden. This yellow rose is one of the best.

Small store

A store, part of COOP, one of the two large chain of stores in Denmark; the other chain is Dansk Supermarked. There is a few other smaller chains of independent stores, too. In a short while we will also see a large German chain in Denmark: Lidl.
The division of the market between only two major store chains, is usually blamed for the high price level in Denmark. Maybe Lidl can change that, maybe not.

Streamer in the sky

Just shot this one this morning. The weather is fantastic, 20°C, sunshine and almost no clouds in late September. Great :-)
Flag poles are rather common and many people has streamers raised in their flag poles.


Going nowhere fast :-)

Sitting in line again on M3 by the road construction. The signs says 80 km/h and the big sign says queue (danish: kø), usually the maximum speed in queues is 40 km/h.
The electronic signs will remain after the roadwork and wil be used to warn of accidents, jams and other important road conditions.

Looking over the hedge from the nearby road in Taastrup. This picture was taken a few days ago on a beautiful, warm September afternoon. I don't know who lives in the house, but I really like the color and style of the house. The leaves make a nice contrasting frame, I think.

Where our money go

This is the tax office for the area north of Copenhagen. It is located in the city of Nærum, close to where I work (no I do not work for the tax office).

Oak leaves

There is a lot of oak trees along the road I live by. These oaks are rather old, and beautiful majestic trees. We hope they will stay for a long time, since we really enjoy them. This picture is shot right in front of our house on a nice summer day.

Sitting in line

On one of the motorways around Copenhagen, the M3, there is a major roadwork. The reason is an extension from 2 to 3 lanes in each direction. M3 (danish: Motorring 3) complicates things by having a lot of intersections.

Ultimate non-decor

I caught this on a trip through the town (Taastrup). It made me think about how some people utterly, and completely fail to add some decoration to our common surroundings.

Pond of no return

Very nice, romantic scenery. This picture is taken a rather cold autumn day in October last year. Me and my family visited an open land museum, called Frilandsmuseet. The museum rebuilts several eras of Danish history with original houses, usually disassembled and moved from their original location. This pond is located near a water mill.

Going down!

This rollercoaster is located in BonBon-Land, an amusement park based on characters from a candy company. The rollercoaster is called the Wild Boar (danish: Vildsvinet) and is one of the fastest in Denmark.
I have tried it a couple of times, lots of fun :-)


Did someone die standing up?

This picture was taking in Copenhagen in September 2003. It was part of an art event. The footsteps where painted on sidewalks all over the town. This photo was shot in front of Copenhagen Central Station (danish: Københavns Hovedbanegård).

With this puzzling image I hereby declare my weblog open.
