This piece of bended metal is considered art. The kids think it's lots of fun to run around in. The piece is located right outside Torstorp Skole.

Pretty sky

A cold (-1°C) December morning. The sky was blue all over. No clouds in sight. Pretty in it's simplicity, eh?

That time of the year

Decorated trees tend to show up at various expected and unexpected places in November and December. This shows a good attempt at decoration a tree, only light bulbs.

Looks good, I think!

Shooting pictures in the dark is a royal pain. This was the least poor of the dozen pictures I took of that tree.

Guiding the drivers

This is how the poles beside the road look in Denmark. Usually they carry a sign for each 100 meters. This particular pole is on a turn and is considered an extra one, hence it has no distance sign.

Playing high

Most likely like every other kid: if you have a playhouse, the roof is the most attractive part. And of course the outside of the roof.

No snow? No problem!

Walking on a quiet street a few days ago, I spotted a snowman on the lawn. Although the season for snowmen is arriving, it was still a bit early considering we haven't seen any snow the last 10 months or so.
Oh well, an inflatable snowman is of course a solution. I guess bad taste is better than no taste.

Video special

So - I, too, have discovered :-) That means I can show a video from Denmark. Although, this is not my own video, I like to show it, because it features one of the biggest and most popular bands in Denmark at the moment: Outlandish.
Long story, short: Outlandish grew up in Brøndby Strand, a multiethnic area west of Copenhagen, the band members comes from three different cultures. The music is a mix of indian, arabic music with a western sound. Very worth listening to.

This particular place hosts an Internet Café and most natobly an Art Gallerie, called S.P.O.T.
