Denmark, Aarhus

Lights at the start of the main Aarhus shopping area.

Denmark, Jutlandic Racecourse

A day at the races. Well actually a Friday evening.
I did take some pictures of the horses racing. These were the type that pull little carts with the jockey sitting in the cart. But as you can see it was a bit dark.
So this is the only half decent picture to come out and Annie took it. Me with beers. Sorry.

Denmark, Aarhus

The picture does not show it, but there were people walking along the boulevard this Saturday night. As it was a long exposure picture, around eight seconds, they’ve blurred into nothing.
You can see a headlight trace as a car cruises slowly along the boulevard and out of the picture on the left.

Denmark, Aarhus

Lady and hen (spitting water). I’m sure this statue has some significance. No idea what.

Ah, I’m told by my Danish friends that it was given by a cloths shop to commemorate 25 years of trading on this street. So now we know.
Thanks Ulrik.

Denmark, Aarhus

Cross roads outside Aarhus train station. Looking down Park Alle.
The building lit up is the City Hall, looks very modern but was built in the 1960’s. It’s shiny because it’s covered with marble.

Denmark, Aarhus, bike

Bike park outside Aarhus train station. The only way you can actually put a bike in here is to start shifting the other bikes around. But be careful, once one falls over... as I know to my cost!

Denmark, Aarhus

Main train station in Aarhus.
Taken late one Saturday night, from the bridge over the railway, on Frederiks Alle.
