Grundtvigs Kirke, Copenhagen

This week’s version of a ‘Sunday Museum’ will be this awe inspiring expressionist-style church in Bispejberg, Copenhagen – Grundtvigs Kirke. It’s free to enter, and I arrived maybe a half hour before its closing time, and basically had the whole church to myself. Here are the photos I took…Happy Sunday!

Frederiksborg Castle (Chapel)

It’s been a while since I’ve done a ‘Sunday Museum’ post! Though today’s post is not exactly a ‘museum’ (more like a castle) I thought it would be nice to share with you these photos of the Frederiksborg Castle chapel. There was a wedding going on the first time I tried to enter the place, but I was patient and waited it out so I could take a peek inside. And I’m glad I did – just look at the place!

Also, stay tuned for more photos from this opulent castle grounds in the coming weeks 🙂

Moody – Marmorkirken, Copenhagen

I mentioned in a previous post that my camera got ruined in the rain. These were the last shots I got on it before the rainfall completely messed up my camera inside my bag (thankfully with my memory card intact).

I’ve never seen anything like this weather before – skies with dramatic storm clouds and narrow slivers of sunlight that made for some very artificial-looking lighting. You can see what I mean below – everything is just visible enough, but you feel like you are walking under some big shadow cast from the sky. I’m pleased I got some cool photos out of it though!

Travel Throwback: La Sagrada Familia, Barcelona (2018)

I was going to create one post for my entire Barcelona trip from a few years back, but realised these photos I took at La Sagrada Familia deserve their own showcase.

If you’ve heard of or been to Barcelona, chances are you recognise this impressive Gaudi church by silhouette if nothing else. Construction began in 1882 and has yet to be completed. Inside, you are transported to an other-worldly environment, with the sun flooding in from the outside and the most vivid stained glass tinting the light as it hits the floor. Just take a look at this awe-inspiring place:

Not very much editing done on these photos – the colours are as vibrant in real life as you see them here on screen!
