Just another day in the life of an ordinary Danish woman. Do the shopping – pick up the kid on the way home from work – hop on the bike. Only today we had a lot of snow and the streets are like soap.

    love your description of the roads … yes, like soap would be true I’m sure … love the insight into the everyday … and beautifully done!!!!

  • We’ve had the coldest January in Denmark in 15 years. The temperature is not the worst – it’s the icy wind in your face. I was wondering how she could have a small child on the bike in this weather.
    Thank you Lois for your lovely comment – as always much appreciated xx

  • I can assure you you wouldn’t. I was at the greengrocer when a women sort of lost control over her bike due to the slippery road and almost fell on some cradles of oranges. The handle of her bike smashed a few.

    It might be just an ordinary day or woman, but it is an extraordinary picture. Such lovely colours punctuated with dots of red. It is the really great photographer that can turn the common into something so beautiful.

  • Your great compliment warms my winter-cold heart♥.
