In Another City - Thematic Photography

These photos were taken during a visit to Denmark in 2007.

The Amalienborg Palace consists of four palaces located round an octagonal courtyard; they have identical facades.

If you are lucky you may get a shot of a sentry marching up and down.

Staying on the theme of palaces, I wish I could remember what was on here at the time.

But visits to cities do not have to just to take in buildings; there is some wildlife too.

To see what other cities have been crowed about this week just fly over to Carmi's Thematic-photographic-277.

I have a dream of someday seeing Copenhagen myself. Especially in the winter I'm thinking. Seeing photos there during Christmas time, bring back all my childhood dreams and imagination of how Christmas time, really is.

Many long years since I was there. I loved the town and enjoyed the Tivoli Gardens. We were actually moored in the Tuborg harbour as they were the only place with a draft big enough for my father's boat. Only time the harbour master has offered us a beer.

I was in Copenhagen on a holiday many, many years ago. The palaces look just the same - I wonder how much the city has changed! Thanks for bringing back memories!
