December 12

Yesterday, we passed the royal palaces, on our way to the church concert. Just as we reached the square, “Amalienborg slotsplads” where the queen and her family are living, the clock was 12, and the soldiers came back from their daily walk through the Copenhagen streets, to make changing of the guard.

    Now that is something I don’t see every day. Not even during the holidays.

      Which indicate that there are empty space for “the sight of Royal Life Guards” in your gallery. Which indicate that you should come and visit your Danish blog friends, to do a filling up.

    Such smartly dressed soldiers. The bottom photo has me itching to crop out the bottom bricks. But that’s me. 🙂

      I see what you mean, and appreciate that you point it out. The last photo was ment as a hint of what size the place have, more than a photo of the soldiers, now that they have been showed at the other photos. As a result of my lack of time these days, I am not realy careful with the cropping, never the less, the idea with a photo should always be clear, so your point is relevant and welcome.

        It is what you wanted to show. I would suggest a lower perspective. That would have really shown the size of the place. Try it the next time you are there. Getting low is something most people do not take the time to do and really get the oh’s and ah’s from people.

          I will think of a way to get low without being suspicious, you know, the soldiers keep an eye on everything at that square, to protect the Queen. 🙂

    giiid, so fortunate of you. The soldiers lined up so nicely, would have loved to see them in person. 🙂

      If you ever come for a visit here, we will go and see them walk in the Copenhagen streets, or we can go to Tivoli and see a “copy” of the royal Life Guards, done by young boys. I found a video on Youtube from Tivoli here:

        Thanks for the link giiid, that’s really neat and it’s like being there in person. 🙂

    I love the idea that you have a king and queen in Denmark, with soldiers marching around the streets! Such a strange concept for us! 🙂 Very picturesque.
