Photo diary: Streets of Copenhagen

Some of my favourite shots from Copenhagen, taken while we were on a city explore. This is for all the photos that I haven’t gotten to put up on the blog yet.

Shot with: Canon 80D and 50mm f/1.8 lens

Flower shops are soooo beautiful. How could I not stop for a picture?

Copenhagen is truly a city of bikes.

I suppose I romanticise cycling through a European city as beautiful as Copenhagen. But for someone who isn’t the most comfortable on a bicycle, I probably won’t be able to pull off that pretty picture haha.

At peak hour.

I think we were walking down the streets around peak hour. People were getting off work, rushing to the train stations, cycling back home. It was pretty chaotic, but at the same time, orderly. So many bikes were on the streets, traffic was moving slow, and people were weaving in and out through the crowds.

Copenhagen’s busiest shopping street (Strøget) definitely lived up to its name. I don’t think it was a weekend, but as the time got later (it was probably 5-6pm although the sky looks like it’s in the middle of the afternoon), more people got out on the streets.

I was really excited to have the 50mm lens in my collection – it was the first lens I bought after buying my camera! I loved the large aperture – up to f/1.8 – and the effect it gave my pictures.

It did make shooting quite hard, because I had to be really far away from whatever I wanted to capture. Without image stabilisation, shooting videos was also a struggle. So I didn’t take out the lens much to use while I was on holiday. But whenever I did, I made sure to capture as much as I could! Hope you liked these!

What do you think about me posting the same photos on multiple blog posts? I didn’t put in the photos I’ve already posted on other Copenhagen posts, but now I’m wondering if it even matters.

Let me know if you enjoy photo posts like these, and I’ll do more in the future!

With love,
