The eagle landed friday, but my mojo took another day to catch up, with a saturday so frightening blank that I feared it would never return. As I embarked on my tour of the city today, I did not know what to expect... but I am back to me. Finally. I harvested 170 shots before my fingers turned numb (hello glove season), and every time I pushed the trigger my mood spiked. You can just imagine the grin on my face today. People must think I am in love. And they may be right.
Yesterday I also got an incredibly inspiring comment on an old post, with the coolest link to a mural project in Philadelphia. I love it when that happens. Perhaps that was why I was so focused on murals today, everywhere I looked there they were. Along with street art and storefronts and all kinds of other things I will have to spread out on a few more posts, so your heads will not explode. But I can not limit myself to showing you just the murals, because the lakes today were incredible, the water was like mirrors. Everything that is beautiful about the lakes was doubled, it was almost unbearable. I sometimes wonder if all this is just in my head or if others see and feel it too. You be the judge:
I don't have the heart to tell you what they nicknamed this one... maybe I'll tell you another day.
(Updated:) This mural is a collaboration between three artists: the city and balloons are by Simon Hjermind Jensen, the girl by fashion designer Anne Sofie Madsen and the sky by Claus Frederiksen. A Copenhagen Cruise project.
