Pop-up store

The first pop-up store that I've seen in Copenhagen (or anywhere else actually). Pop-up stores are small stores that just pop-up for a few days and then they are gone and move on to a new place. This shoe store was here last week.

At different places around Nørrebro you can find instruments like this at the moment. It is part of project called Nørrebrodagbog (Nørrebro Diary) planning to document everyday life in this vibrant part of the city. At this station you can record a message into the phone.

Farmers Market III

By pure coincidence I bumped into this farmers market today in the city centre. I have been at a few farmers markets before and this one was one of the better ones.

A view of The Lakes from last Sunday. Nice weather over one of the nicest recreational areas in the city.

Can anyone tell me where I can go for 3800?

Hello, Dolly

I think those living behind this window like Louis Armstrong. Can't really blame them on that.

I went for a walk this morning and this is the sight that met me outside my door. It looks pretty crazy, but it isn't that bad. A burst water main with 300 degrees hot water lets out the steam.

This is cyclist No. 4704 who is passing this spot today out of 1940358 since July 15 2009. Cycling for transportation is big in Copenhagen. (Wonder what the guy in the background is doing in the cycle lane).

Don't forget to check out Copenhagen Cycle Chic.

A dream

"I have a dream to be an environmentalist. An environmentalist tries to save our planet."

That's what it says on this globe at Nørreport Station. Different kinds of them are popping up around the city. I guess it as a preparetion for the UN Climate Summit (COP15) in Copenhagen in December.

I want to be an environmentalist as well and try to save our planet.

Election day

Yesterday we went to the polling stations again. We did it earlier this year when voting for the EU Parliament. This time it was the elction for the regional councils.

The turnout was 65,8 % - the lowest in 35 years. Some argue that it is because of the H1N1 virus. No matter what then it is not impressing.

These elephants are part of the decoration of Carlsberg Breweries. They are national heritage. Note the swastika sitting on the side of them. Carlsberg actually used this as one of their trademarks until 1945, when it became too infected Nazi associations.

The Olsen Gang

This silhouet is sitting on an otherwise quite boring wall in Palads cinema complex. It features The Olsen Gang - a massive success in Danish movie history.

Another brewery

Last week I posted a photo from Nørrebro Bryghus (Nørrebro Bryghus) - a small micro brewery. But we have other breweries around. This is Carlsberg and probably the most famous one.

A bridge taking traffic quickly through the north west part of the city. Not exactly an arcitectural masterpiece.

Posters as street art

Posters is somehow a kind of street art I think. Not always so beatiful, but definately part of the city.

Exercise in Frederiksberg Have

Frederiksberg Have (Frederiksberg Garden) is a good spot for doing a bit of exercise, like these people in the distance are doing.
