The Copenhagen Collection

Copenhagen Collection

After a dinner for the crew of the TV series I'm shooting we came out of the restaurant and realised that we had a fantastic collection of Copenhagen bikes.

The chap on his 'flavour of the month' fixie had left but add it to these bikes above.

Needless to say, I was the only one who actually noticed the fine variety of Copenhagen bicycles gathered in one place. Copenhageners don't notice bikes or have long conversations about them. You'll get a "cool bike" once in a while - if your bike is cool, that is - but rarely more than that.

The goofy smiles in the photo are the result of two bottles of snaps [schapps], good food and laughs. We were off to a pub, after which all digital recording ceased.
