I would to like say that my prime purpose in taking photos of architecture when visiting a new city is purely random captures of beauty. But, the truth is, I know my brain. And while it has worked pretty well for me so far, it is not only fallible when trying to recall the looks of a city visited long ago, but sometimes downright negligent! Therefore, if I want to someday recall the look, feel and aesthetics of a city (and impress my kids by knowing where a particular movie scene was filmed), I must have photos to refer back to. To that end, I have begun to try to capture not only the historic aspects,
Marble Bridge & Christianborg Palace
Christianborg Palace Grounds
Amalienborg Palace – Residence of the Royal Family
But also, sometimes, just the beauty,
My favorite captures are the quirky architectural elements that I want to remember long after my brain tries to forget,
Short door anyone?
And sometimes, the architectural photos I take are just to remember the uniqueness of a city,
The most interesting architecture is sometimes found in airports and train stations
Copenhagen Train Station
Sometimes, lets face it, it is just a good photo op…
Pizza in Nyhavn
And sometimes, it is just a photo begging to be taken.
Tall things in Copenhagen
Whatever the reason for the architectural photo, I am sure to remember Copenhagen – even if memory doesn’t serve!
