Just a photo

It’s been one of those weeks – I’ve got too much to do and at the same time I’m a bit under the weather. Result? I haven’t managed to write anything that’s ready to post. But just to let you know that I’m still roaming around in the depths of the Internet, here’s a picture I like – an unusual building from Copenhagen.

Aug06CopenhagenTwistedSpireAndGablesI like this shot, first of all, for the behind-the-scenes look at these gables – if you stood squarely in front of the building, all you would see would be wildly curlicued brick facings. If you stand just a little off to the side, you realize that behind the fancy false fronts are very simple structures sheathed in what’s probably plates of copper.

But never mind the secrets of the gables – what I really love about this building is that silly-looking twisted spire, a little bit like a narwhal’s tusk. This narwhal has to swim along holding its mouth out of the water, though, so the weather vane on top of the spire can catch the wind.
