I hope that you will excuse the fact that my ancient slides are all a jumble (as is my memory). If you have never done it, I cannot even begin to describe what a pain it is to scan slides, not to mention the impossibility of getting all of the specks off. I managed to rub some of them out while treating the scanned images, but a lot of them are still there.
One thing that fascinates me about rediscovering photos like this is to see what I chose to take pictures of back when each frame of film actually cost money and so many more photos were not taken for this reason. Not to mention of course that with rolls of 24 or 36 photos, even using one or two rolls of film a day was considered extravagant.
This is the train station.
Even back then, odd compositions fascinated me.
Some airlines with absolutely no affinities were neighbours.
In the centre of Copenhagen are the Tivoli gardens. I found them magical.
The buildings are all restaurants, bars, amusement arcades, kiddie rides...
I bet that the lighting effects are amazing now, but they were pretty good already back then.
All of the big hotels and department stores have French names.
The Danes absolutely love their ice cream.
Something must have been happening here.
I've been there 3 times, but the last time was at least 20 years ago, so I'm sure I'm due for a return trip.
I had the same thought as Fumobici about the hairdos.
This is not really how I picture Copenhagen -- all I ever see in "travel" photos is the row of cafés along a waterfront, to the extent that I thought there was nothing else to see. So thanks for showing street crowds like this.
It's impressive that you were really taking "photographs", not just snapping vacation memories. The scene selection, framing, etc. in the penultimate picture could have come from one of your recent threads.
Was thinking the same as Fumobici, so was interested to hear that the visits covered the '80s as well.
