The Pale Afternoon Light of Copenhagen Autumns

This is a daily scene. Copenhageners heading home from work stop at the supermarket. They come out and strap their groceries onto their bike before heading on to their flats, houses, wherever.

In the autumn afternoon light this simple daily task assumes a romantic, melancholy feel.

Delurking to say how much I enjoy your site. I wish my country's (Ireland)politicians would learn some lessons from Denmark on how to provide proper cycling infrastructure and get people out of their bloody cars.
Love that photo and the way you describe it.
