So I am a little bit late with the photos... so much to do and see in Copenhagen! It's very easy to shoot hundreds of photos but culling, editing and sharing takes so much time. This article is a little photo summary of a few places and events for the last few weeks.
First off, Bernstorff Parken is a little known gem for tourists because it is not right in the centre of Copenhagen. You need to take the S-tog train for a few minutes to Gentofte station. It's a rather big park with a small pond, a green house, several fruit trees, an 18th century palace, a Swedish Villa built in 1888, some woodland and it's also the only park in Copenhagen where dogs can run freely without a lead. And since I've started doing Pet photography it is quite handy ;)
In 1919, Bernstorff's Estate was given to Prince Axel of Denmark as a wedding present but the Prince decided to live in the villa on the edge of the estate rather than in the Palace in the middle of the estate. In 1978 it was bought by the British Government which turn the villa into the British Ambassador's Residence. The then new Ambassador (and the ones after) kept the private library (below) containing an admirable number of books about fishing and sailing, most of them in English and Danish, and also some of them containing written messages to Prince Axel from other European royals.
About a month ago there was a skateboard competition (Fortovfest) in Vesterbro with music, food stalls and flea market. The competitors were much younger than I'd had expected but allowed us to discover another part of Vesterbro.
These days I love photographing animals and 'wildlife'. I have mentioned the Dear Park many times on this blog but there is a whole area on the outskirt of the park called Ermelunden that has woods, a pond and horses.
