The Standard

A look back at exactly 3 years ago: December in Copenhagen can be quite cold, but the weather is also often very calm, the sun is shining and the sky is blue. At least, the few hours we’ve got sunlight.

I had a day off, and decided to take a walk in the city. On my way, I came across a building I’ve always liked: The Standard bordering the harbour front.

Functionalism was hot in Denmark in the late 30’s, when The Standard was built. The building was initially a toll house and later a ferry terminal. Nowadays, it houses three fancy restaurants/cafés.

Anyways, I found the building and the light great on that day, and took a couple of snaps. I wanted to give the images a slight lomographic feel so I saturated the colors and gave them a heavy vignette.

Hopefully, next time I walk by the Standard, I’ll stop for a cup of Coffee:-)
