Winter has arrived in Copenhagen. After a week of light snow, the lakes have started to freeze over and the city center has traded slick paving stones for a clean layer of white snow. I captured this moment late-afternoon in the heart of the city center along one of Copenhagen’s oldest and most historic streets. You can see the snow falling, lit by the street lamp, a hearty Dane biking despite the weather, and snow covered bicycles propped against sagging buildings. Though it looks late in the evening, it was only about 4:30 or 5PM when I took this shot.
There’s something about this photo – a certain warmth perhaps – that really speaks to me and evokes thoughts of stories and familiar fantasy. Does it have the same effect on you? If so, what is its impact? What does it remind you of?
