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,

My favorite captures are the quirky architectural elements that I want to remember long after my brain tries to forget,

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

Sometimes, lets face it, it is just a good photo op…

And sometimes, it is just a photo begging to be taken.

Whatever the reason for the architectural photo, I am sure to remember Copenhagen – even if memory doesn’t serve!
