journey to the end of the night
this way north
the little mermaid on her iceberg
cypress night in buen retiro park, madrid
spanish royal palace
like a kids drawing: a tree and a house 🏡
the labyrinthian angle on grundtvig’s church, brick expressionism and gothic architecture drawn by peder wilhelm jensen-klint and built on a copenhagen hill top 1921-1940. klint’s design would inspire the amazing #hallgrimskirkja in reykjavik, which was built 1945-1986. both churches are dedicated to poets.

probably bet money on caroline wozniacki to win a grand slam tournament on 10 occasions over the years - be it wimbledon, us open or australian open - each time firmly believing that this time she would win. today it paid off! wow, what a thriller against simona halep in the australian open final 💥 great stuff. so happy for wozniacki, she must have thought more than once that she would never win a major. didn’t see the third set though, cause today the sun broke free of those smothering january clouds and i just had to go sneak up on some deer.

cell block in horsens state penitentiary. i once played an intense game of chess against a guy who learned how to play while incarcerated here. jake was a bank robber. i met him while studying in aarhus. he had gotten out of horsens on parole in the late 1990’s and had moved into a half way house where he lived door to door with younger people, students, who payed a reduced rent. the idea of course was for the criminals to form friendships with non-criminals and reintegrate into society. it worked for jake. he became friends with a friend of mine, and i met him at a party. didn’t talk to him. met him again at another party. he approached me: “i hear you are a strong chess player,” he said and looked at me with these piercing, calculating little eyes. “i just got my own apartment, why don’t you come by for a game? bet i can beat you!” he said. he had a romantic interest in a female friend of mine, so i figured he wanted to befriend me to better his chances with her. i accepted the challenge and went to his place a few days later. nice apartment. 8th floor with a view of the bay. it was evening, ship’s lanterns out on the water. we had pizzas and a couple of beers. he told me about his criminal career. for years he had robbed banks, gotten very good at it. he would rob one or two banks during the summer, then go to rio de janeiro and live as a big spender during the winter. year after year. until a member of his crew told the police everything. then a car chase. then prison. “i hate rats!” said jake while setting up the chess pieces. i beat him easily. he took it pretty well, but of course he wanted a rematch. i crushed him again. that got him a bit irritated. in the third game he got increasingly frustrated with himself, cause i was beating him again; then i made a mistake that allowed him to draw the game. i remember standing in the elevator a little later thinking: “that was weird.” never saw the guy again. he just disappeared. nobody knew where he’d gone. he’d told someone that he wanted to go to norway to study computer science. then a rumor said he’d found work in belgium. i wonder. #horsens #prison #abstract #chess #storytelling #architecture
the danish weather ... i witnessed a hail storm in august, sitting in a boat, nowhere to hide from it. then comes a winter with hardly a day of snow. this was new year’s day. #ig_color #trees #nature_perfection #soulful_moments #landscape #nature_brilliance #scandinavia #landscape_captures #mossø #ry #skanderborg #jylland #denmark #visitdenmark #moody_nature #landscapelovers
