Brumleby autumn

I love these yellows and the faded greens
and the flat low sunlight throwing sharp shadows.

Halloween now

used for recycling stuff

I admire this sturdy well pruned rose

made in the Netherlands?

the expensive vernacular oak furniture loved by grandparents is now so much junk - but will it be the antiques of the future?

Last summer when I got to these lights (which I had forgotten about) I was exhausted and very disappointed not to be at my last road junction. This time went much better and I has only sat down once instead of fopur or five times.

and my destination

with a warm welcome

and thank you for the Ted Hughes poems
Remains of

Later I went home by s-tog and hurried onto the departing bus 21 instead of 1a at Hellerup station,
so I walked from Tuborgvej past Instituttet for Blinde og Svagsynede, Blindeinstituttet Rymarksvej 1 2900 Hellerup
to get bus 15 from Ryparken home.

the three small fountains were turned off

They spring from three boulders situated in a bed of pebbles, and normally they provide an audible clue to help the blind people orientate themselves to or from the entrance.

when I got home I ended up watching the first half of the King Vidor film of 1925, Big Parade silent with text in German

which I use to review these blog images and adjust the gamma in the darker pictures

wash day

Up early today in Brumleby Copenhagen
about 6:30am

In the old days these were the out door toilets of 1890 vintage
and in use to about 1995

the wash house with first light to the east

full of cycles

the olde coppers (bilers) used to be under the chimney breast
now used for damp air from the dryers

I use the machine on the right lent to us by my kind neighbour

the machines are frost proofed with soil heaters

about three hours later

our kitchen doors

perfume free detergent
(just in case)
on the steps to my bathroom

The water is for passing dogs, birds, cats,
and toddlers splash it too

my big sheets from IKEA (10 years old)

the weather looks a bit grey - raining in north Jutland
warm front coming
