CV portraits shoot at the International House

I have been invited again to help out with the CV photos shoot for the people who are currently enrolled in Copenhagen Host Program at the International House. It has been as inspiring as the first time and the weather was on our side, so we could go out and do some shoots outside as well.

Here is a small selection of photos from the day.

We will have another session on September 1, between 13 and 17. Need a CV photo? Contact the Copenhagen Host Program.

Trumpet Solo at Sunrise

one simple story
and maybe not a story
and maybe not so simple 
we’d like to tell about
 
we do remember it from childhood
and maybe not from childhood
and maybe even don’t remember
but will try to recollect
“Tomorrow morning you can see the sun rise over the rooftops of Copenhagen from the spire of Vor Frue Kirke. Be there at 06.30 and join for a walk up the stairs accompanied by a trumpet solo.”  It was the Easter sunday morning. I was surprised to see that many people at this hour. But in a few moments it became self-evident why.

It was an experience which doesn’t travel well with words or pictures, but I will do my best.

City Hall | Good morning, Copenhagen!

We were up in the bell tower with the wonderful view over Copenhagen. Waiting for the sun to rise. At the very tip of it the trumpet played a tune and people lit the candles. They sang a carol and let the moment sink in. On our way down, we noticed a couple that the guard just left standing there. He was making a proposal and she didn’t know. The guard had promised to the man that he could have the spire and the sunrise just for themselves.

my B-side, which some people from the community liked more than my selection for the A-side. I can never decide actually… and always wonder what would happen if I’d enter the other one instead?
