One Sunday, some time ago


Today, just some forgotten analog photos from an autumn stroll around Christiasnhavn during which I discovered...



...an impressive collaboration between nature and architecture.



...a very cool vintage kid's bike (which I would have been proud to own when I was five).




...some urban gardening.



...the grafittied entrance of one of my regular music venues.





...good coffee at one of my favorite haunts.

..explored some of the bustling villages















...and hopped on and off trains, starting in Trivandrumpuram and heading north along the Malabar coast.






Escapism: India - part 1





The view from the back seat of a rickshaw (or 'Tuk Tuk') seems like a dream to me know. Our holiday adventure to India was an all around spectacular trip, with its share of both challenges and rewards.

The fluid chaos of the streets.






The ever present haze which adds a dramatic touch to all photos.








The infamous street-food. And valuable advice from a local that we should only visit the busy ones for the freshest food.














And then on to Kerala on the south west coast where relaxation begins.....
