COPENHAGEN CHRISTMAS



FINAL CALL FOR COPENHAGEN

Currently writing from lovely Copenhagen and I cannot tell you how close we came to missing Christmas. It all started with a passport gone MIA. The search started at 7pm and lasted all night. By 3am, my beautiful flatmate Amy and her cousin Eliza had joined the panicked search.
 Long story short, I threw the last few things into my suitcase: lenses, chargers, toothbrush, put my glasses and boots on and there was a whole lot of running before sitting down in seat 4C from London bound for Copenhagen.
 However, as is always the way, something had been left behind... I quickly went pale when I realised that my trusty travel companion, my Olympus EPL-7, had sadly not made the voyage. Fortunately, Amy had brought her EPL-6, so all was not lost and my poor lenses wouldn't spend their holidays gathering dust. More in detail, I had brought my 12mm and my 75mm lens two of my favourites for city and portrait shoots, but without the house of the camera there would have been no photos for Christmas. Olympus put in a little Christmas competition for you guys! If you create your Christmas wish list here, you can win your favourite PEN accessories.



LAST FEW GIFTS

We come to this time every year when the last few presents need to be found. From watches and cameras, to tea and traditional home-made biscuits, you can always find the perfect gift for the ones you love. And afterwards, there's nothing quite like popping into Mormors Café for a well-earnt rest in their beautifully decorated parlour. There's something about they way they have managed to collect things from Danish everyday culture and connecting so many points in Danish history, that has made it such a safe spot for me to return home to.

Like with noses turning red from the cold, coming inside where it's toasty and warm has an effect on cameras too, which can be a fun thing to play around with! Lenses often tend to get condense on them, and to create the shot to the left just below, I waited till the worst was gone and took my shot.



HAVE A BEAUTIFUL ADVENT AND MAKE SURE YOU ENTER THE OLYMPUS CHRISTMAS COMPETITION HERE
