The Playhouse, Copenhagen

I have some not-so-good news. My trusty old Canon Rebel T3i (a rather old model of Canon’s entry-level DSLR, which all the photos on my blog are taken with, excepting a few phone snaps) has broken down after all these years, thanks to…the rain. Such is Danish summer. It was just the other day that I went out for a walk around this exact area, it hadn’t rained all day, and I took some photos of dramatic rain clouds. On my cycle back home, however, it suddenly started pouring down. It was less like rain and more like a flood of waterfall from the heavens, I’ve never experienced such intense rainfall in my life. Of course the rain then subsided just in time for me to step back home sniffling and absolutely soaked head-to-toe. Unfortunately my camera somehow got wet inside my backpack (which I covered with my umbrella) and it has just stopped working since. Thankfully my lens and memory card seems fine so I will at least be able to share some of my rainy/cloudy shots with you at some point. I’m not too sad about the camera, though this is now unfortunately my second camera which has broken, because I am definitely on the market for a camera upgrade ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m honestly torn between getting another DSLR – I’ve owned and loved my trusty Canon DSLRs over 10+ years – and a more compact mirrorless camera. I am so indecisive about these kind of things. Any of you camera-lovers have any advice for an amateur like me?

Anyhow – you’ll have to make do with these dry golden-hour shots I took a couple weeks back by the Playhouse in town ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve got a backlog of many more wonderful scenes from Denmark to share with you in general, so there will be plenty more photos in the coming weeks.

These set of pictures in particular make me so happy. I mean, there’s an aesthetic overload going on here. The clean lines, the neat patterns, the angular structures, the glass, the golden hour reflections, the bright yellow water taxi, the cyclist’s bridge, the social spaces. It’s a memorable place and perfect for an evening stroll close to town. I am reminded yet again to try and get out a bit more and make the most of the late sunset hours when it’s sunny enough to be outside (maybe with a new camera next time)!

Hope you enjoyed these images ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Those things happen. I happen to currently use Olympus. Over the course of my career I shot with film using Nikons, then switched to Canon for digital, eventually segued into using Fujifilm’s XF system and then went smaller now using Olympus. Its OM 5 MIII or 10 MIII are both weather sealed and one lens, a 12-150mm zoom will do you well for not a lot of dollars. Small enough to fit easily into a small purse or bag, but produces really nice images and video. It may not be the newest kid on the block and Olympus is going through some growing pains, but for the money, size and quality, it will be fine. The images I have on my blog these days are shot with Olympus gear, as is my most recent political coverage during Iowa’s 2019 caucus season when the politicians came through looking for support. Keep up the nice work and enjoy. It looks like a lovely place to visit. And gear is just that. Gear. I love my work, but I also still try to just have fun. jerry

  3. Open battery compartment, card slots, put it in a bowl of rice. You might be lucky still. Check it again after a week.
    (Oh, I always take a bin liner along, either to put the camera inside or while taking pictures in the rain)


  4. Amazing pictures, as always! That’s so sad about the camera ๐Ÿ˜ญ I personally used a DSLR for a long time then, because I wanted to have a smaller camera to carry more easily in my purse, I switched to a hybrid (specifically the Canon M50 I think). It has a lense that you can switch but also the electronic part of the mirrorless cameras. I love it! It’s very small and allows me to download the pictures directly on my phone, without having to use a memory card! Though kind of regret the optical zoom of my old DSLR ๐Ÿ˜›
