This picture was taken in the coastal nature reserve Tjurpannan in Bohuslän, Sweden. The area is known for its sculptural grey granite rocks, which are scattered throughout the coastal landscape. The charming fishing hamlets and cosy villages stand in stark contrast to the rough landscape, as they have for centuries.
Dan Isaac Wallin used a large-format Szabad 4x5 camera for this photo, a 1940s camera that requires the photographer to place a hood over his or her head while the picture is taken.
The beautiful Fernsehturm in the city centre of Berlin – at Alexanderplatz. It was intended as a symbol of Berlin, which it remains today, as it is easily visible throughout the central and some suburban districts of Berlin. With its height of 368 meters, it is the tallest structure in Germany… and visibility reach of 42 kilometres on a clear day.!!! WOW isn’t that something.
The girl with the scissor is from the series The Birthday Party.
The Australian photographer Vee Speers took portrait photos of several children at an imaginary birthday party.
The poetic photos are shot at eye level, drawing the viewer into the children’s world – a world that evokes conflicting emotions somewhere between fantasy and real life.
We love the dramatic elements that depict both the playful innocence and the not always flawless state of childhood.
In a unique collaboration, ViSSEVASSE has secured the exclusive rights to Vee Speers’s photos...
What a fabulous welcome committee! When you enter the port of Aarhus by boat, ferry or water ski, you can’t avoid falling in love with these two handsome guys. They look majestic as the stand there together with their crane friends, at Denmark’s largest container port… Welcome to Aarhus.
What time is it? Well, take a glance at the 60 meter high city hall tower of Aarhus and find your answer. The clock face has a diameter of 7 metres – you won’t miss it…
Actually, the first plans did not include a tower. But due to massive public pressure it was later added to the legendary architects Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller’s drawings.
The Zoo Tower is inspired by the Eiffel Tower, and opened in 1905 with its 182 steps from the ground to the top. Back in the day the entry fee was 15 øre if you climbed all the 182 steps yourself, and 30 øre if you took the lift. From the top you have a magnificent view over Copenhagen and all the way to Roskilde, and you can even see the beautiful Øresund Bridge.
At night the red neon lights signal bedtime for most of the animals and a wake up call for the nocturnal...
In Denmark it’s called a ”Paris wheel”, but Paris has nothing to do with it. Whether you look at it from the ground or you look at the ground from one of the cabins, it’s amazing. Give yourself a 30 minutes rotating treat topping at 135 meters.
Boil sugar and water, adjust with squeezed lemon juice and refrigerate. Pour it over lemon slices and decorate with mint. And - voilà - you have the very best drink for the summer season.
If the weather is not all that warm the lemonade can be served hot. Adding ginger could be a good idea. Heats up your tummy and helps if you feel a bit low.
Paris, Paris, Paris! Trying to capture your sights and sounds is almost impossible, and for most of the time we wouldn’t event try, but we couldn’t resist the incredible Art Nouveau Metro stations. And especially the glass covered Porte Dauphine stole our hearts.
Everyday happiness can come from something as simple as a flower. Seeing it sprout, grow and unfold can bring colour to even the greyest of Mondays. The pansy may look delicate, but it’s tough, able to survive, even if the temperature drops a few degrees below freezing. If winter gets the better of it, it simply closes its eyes, bends its delicate neck and waits for better times.
Walking down Karl Johan from Stortinget to The Royal Palace you might notice the most wonderful copper roofed newsstand. A bit humble and secret in its attitude, but still insisting and conscious of its own worth, ”I gave you news and the world for generations, so come to me if you need to know”.
The Botanical Garden is a truly magnificent oasis in Copenhagen and also a scientific workplace that, among other things, has 3 gene banks. Not to be confused with a jeans bank, so if you want a pair of trousers you must look elsewhere!
Whatever you are looking for, it’s one of the most beautful places in Copenhagen.
Monk cress is a highly sustainable plant – the leaves, seeds and flowers are all edible and have a mild cress flavour. Use it as a tasty and decorative supplement to bring that Michelin touch to your own dinner table.
We are quite certain that the State Prison is a much more enticing place to be nowadays, than when the first prisoners arrived in 1853. They were set to work to finishing the prison buildings. A bit like fencing in yourself.
Anyhow, it is nice to know that today the prison houses cultural activities and we would very much like to dream on - hippie-style - that this was happening to all prisons.
Magical moonlight and a calm sea. Take a deep breath, pull the fresh sea air deep into your lungs, and enjoy the boat ride. At the end of the journey, new adventures and beginnings await.
