This photo did I take 2010 – while waiting for my flight to Berlin at Copenhagen Airport – Kastrup, the most efficient airport in the world. The subject was a wonderful art glass wall that divided two waiting areas at the end of concourses B . So in the background do you see the touchdown runway and the traffic tower. Fantastic that I got the use for this photo … that I have looked as a failure, because of the background coming through.
Of course I have done a post about my favorite airport : waiting girls …. strollers … and final calls

That’s a fabulous piece of glass!
The airport is full of colorful and fun art … wish that the background hadn’t come through – but then I couldn’t used it for the challenge.
All good things for a reason. 🙂

Brilliant entry for a difficult challenge Viveka. A good lesson to never delete ‘disappointing’ images 🙂
Madhu, I had quite a few to choose from this week – but this is the most colorful. I have loads of “disappointing” photos were something is in the background – reflections of something that shouldn’t be there. I love this because of the strong colors.
I like the twist you have in your photos; what makes Copenhagen the most efficient airport in the world then?
Dallas, you have to read my link about the airport. – http://wp.me/p293Pw-102 – it normally takes me 20 min from that I step of the train under the airport to that I’m through the security check with check in. luggage drop and everything. Try to beat that.
Plus the than have hand luggage strollers that you can take all the way up to the departure gate. God sent.
Love all that colour against the almost b&w background. Perfect shot for this challenge 🙂
Thank you so much … it is fantastic colors in that glass wall. Now in the challenge am I very pleased with the shot.
a fab photo, the colour combinations are a treat for me x
Claire, thank you so much *smile – I love the colors in that wall too.

Fantastic colours! Perfect for the challenge – AND colourful – AND fine art! brilliant, and like Madhu said: A good lesson to never delete ‘disappointing’ images 🙂
I know … I’m always so quick to delete photos that I’m not pleased with. Kastrup has some stunning art.
Ha en härlig weekend nu .. snart är det juli !!!!!
Can’t wait! But first…Voyager…
Yes, I know … the newspaper phoned .. because Stena Metal had contacted him and said that it wasn’t safe to go aboard this week, so we are doing it next Thursday. 30.5. Wounder what state it will be in aboard.
Also Ostindiefararen Götheborg arrived today … have go down and take some photos of it. It cost 100SEK to go aboard – I will not do that.

It’s beautiful…. and isn’t it always such a nice surprise when you begin to realize that a picture you thought you goofed up on turns out to be so cool and creative. 😀
Yes, I looked through files after files .. for a background photo … nothing clicked. Then I remember my file with photo from my Berlin visit.
I was a bit upset that the photo didn’t come out as I had wished then, but now .. perfect.
Thank you so much for your support.
Exactly why I keep so many of my photos, even the ones I think didn’t come out quite right. Lovely colors in this photo and in an airport, too!
Thank you, Janet … yes, I learned that lately that to keep all photos. After I won a photo challenge with a photo that I was on my way to delete.
Copenhagen Airport has stunning art.
That’s one beautiful art glass wall, thanks for sharing! Anything vibrant keeps me going.
Jean, I totally agree …. I can think B&W photos are okay, but I want colors in my world. The more colors the better. Thanks for stopping by.

Great picture 🙂 ! xo
Thanks, hope to hear and read about you GALA evening soon.
Will do very soon – it was soooooo good! 🙂 xo
Can’t wait … do forget to show the dress !!!!! *smile
don’t forget, it should have been. !!!!!
🙂 we forgot to take pictures of us, but I will try to give an impression of the theatre 🙂 xo
Dia, I would have love to see the dresses, you don’t have to wear them … and shoes and bag … I love Glam.
OK, give me a little while and then I’ll see if I can get my mom to take some more pictures – the ones I’m wearing only show me in my coat 😉 xo
Just take a photo of the material or something *smile … please, don’t feel that you have to – I’m only envy and curios.
I’ve been to Copenhagen airport a few times but I don’t remember seeing this piece of glass. Possibly because I was too busy trying to get from point A to point B (lesson learned: always take time to notice the little details around you!). Thanks for sharing this photo with us xx
They have art all over the place … a lot of glass .. but my favorite is the waiting girls – standing – looking down on the SAS check-in area.
Then they have the glass birds flying – and the glass sculpture with the jockey and his horse. Look next time. I make sure I have loads of time at my airport – love to have time to kill. *smile
I will definitely take a good look next time! I’m flying to Copenhagen mid next year to visit my relatives in Malmo. Seems like such a long time away 😦 I’ve delayed the visit as I need to save more money for the trip. Sigh. I wish I could win lotto!! xx
I hope there will be a chance for us to met up next time you come to Sweden, I only 20 min away from Malmö with train. I wish I could win lotto too – then I would travel and travel and travel.Time I have enough of .. but money – know the feeling .
I would love that. I will keep you posted on plans. We might even visit Landskrona with a bit of luck! I’m aiming for June or July 2014. Sounds so far away but I hope it’ll come around quickly xx
Of course you are so welcome to Landskrona … especially in the summer – it’s a lush place to visit. Time fly away with us .. very soon 2014 will be here.
