Doorways


Gudhjem, Bornholm

I am not sure it is wise to admit or if it even makes any sense to anyone but me, I feel obliged to though.
I have a thing, photographically speaking, for doorways.
I tend to take pictures of doorways no matter where I go.
They pique my curiosity, I am free to make up small mental stories of people living there, guess as to why and how they live or just plain ponder on why people decorate them the way they do.

Doorways are orderly subjects too, closed, but with strong lines and more or less sharp angles, often contrasting colours to create contrasts and small signs of living often parked just outside.

All of these doorways will eventually make into a gallery of their own on my homepage, but for now I will leave you with this yellow/red/green doorway combination from Gudhjem on Bornholm.

Alpine Azalea

Alpine Azalea - Tiny Greenlandic Flowers
 Zoom back a good ten years and my photographic reality was very far removed from that of today.
I had a curiosity for all aspects of photography and was working slowly on how to apply them to the world around me.

The flora in subarctic Greenland, OK in all of Greenland, is diverse and amazing in so many ways.
The Alpine Azelea in particular remained a tiny wonder to me.
Incredibly tiny, but also incredibly robust, no leaves as such but stubby and tough green almost pine-cone like substitutes.

The image above remain a personal favourite among my images of Greenlandic flora and, and while I did not know it at the time, it marked the beginning of years of photography of Greenlandic flora as small side projects when working on larger projects during summer.

More thoughts of Paris

Notre-Dame, Paris - unnumbered
 As I sit here in the Airport Lounge, waiting for SAS to call out for my flight to Paris. my third or fourth visit in 12 month, it is hard not to be enfused with memories of wonderful time spend, love  both long lost and new found, family and a myriath of other things.
Paris seem forever entangled in my personal life.

This time is a little different though, I leave a small family behind to spend 3 and a half busy days with back to back meetings and eveninge engagements.

Perceptions of a scattered mind, Paris 2017

One might say my thoughts are scattered and seemingly confused, yet completely focused on all the things truly important in my life.

My hope is to get a least a few hours sqeezed into the early mornings to explore a few of my favourite gems and do a few morning runs along the ever wonderful Saine.

More to come soon :)
