Stork Fountain on Strøget Copenhagen by 


The Stork Fountain is located on Amagertorv in central Copenhagen, Denmark. It was a present to Crown Prince Frederik (later Frederik VIII) and Crown Princess Louise in connection with their silver wedding anniversary in 1894. It depicts three storks about to set off.
Since 1950 it has been a tradition that newly graduated midwives dance around the fountain. – We all know that babies are delivered by the Stork, right? ;)

    I sure like this photograph. It’s so busy with people, but has a great balance of grays and visual texture. It all fits; as the people become part of the patterns. Hope you will submit this to Solo, Kira.

  • Thank you very much Frannie, I just did. Glad you like it ☺
