Postcard from Copenhagen

After nearly a decade, I am home for more than a few weeks at a time. Not permanently, but long enough to appreciate the effortless calmness found within the city. Per my tradition, I embark on daily walks through Copenhagen. And while the city changes tremendously by each time I visit, the sense of familiarity doesn’t.

To my luck, it is cherry blossom season, and I make sure to stop by H.C. Andersen’s tombstone at Assistens Kirkegård. Getting coffee along the harbor of Christianshavn and catching up with friends at the Red Square never fails to please me. The Hermitage hunting lodge, Skovtårnet, and Roskilde Cathedral are brief trips from downtown, yet far enough to experience the countryside. From the outdoor rooftop gym in the new neighborhood of Nordhavn to the completely unrecognizable Carlsberg byen. The list goes on. In short, this city is designed around public spaces, and it continues to be a city for its people. For the locals, for the visitors, and for those who stroll the streets in hopes of making sense of the beautiful capital that lay in front of us.

All images were made with a Fuji X-Pro2 camera, with either an adapted Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f/1.4, a native 18mm f/2, and/or a 56mm f/1.2 lens. Brief edits were made using homemade presets in Lightroom.
