The daily walk often goes to Ramsømagle, but sometimes also through that small village. The other day the sun was shining, the wind was somewhere else and the temperature around 0 degree celsius. It was excellent weather to go for a walk. I discovered a small lake I never before have seen in Ramsømagle. In the village there are many trees and it is a kind of charming place to be.
A part of Roskilde Museum is this old daily shop selling everyday goods to local peolpe. It still does. And to the tourists.
Young people learn how the old days was, and not so young people can reexperience the good old days.
Today is another grey day in Roskilde - grey in grey as such days are called in Denmark. The decision is to use 3 photos from August 23, 2009. That day was the last day of Roskilde Airshow 2009, and I had my camera with me walking around in Gadstrup.
First I saw this motive of the farmers land.
Then I heard a noise, but I couldn't see anything because of the little hill, but
suddenly I could see what was hidden, and then
I could see more. The farmer was spreading dung on his land.
Today, at the middle of the day, the sun is shining in Gadstrup, Roskilde. It is nice to see the light again. The photo show my view from a window in the house. The birch belongs to one of the neighbours.
Yesterday a snowstorm hit Denmark. This photo is taken with my mobilephone when I stopped a moment to do it. It is between Viby Sjælland and Ramsømagle. Today some of the snow has gone as temperature has increased to +0 Celsius.
In Skomagergade or Shoemakerstreet there are some shoe-shops, but none shoemakers any more.
Before Christmas you will see festoons over the streets in many cities in Denmark. How they look in Roskilde is seen at the photo.
At different places in Roskilde you will find a tower from which you can watch birds, in danish it is a "fugletårn" (Birdstower). In Ramsødalen you find many different birds, which can be seen from the tower.
Today at Roskilde Railway Station there was an old Steamtrain - with a Christmastree at the front. It is a museumtrain.
Many people could think back to the good old days or see how it was many years ago.
My camera was at home - but I used the camera in my mobilephone...
At Stændertorvet - the central square in Roskilde - you find The City Hall. A new, much bigger is under construction somewhere else. The Christmas Tree is seen at this photo, taken at a dark day in december.
In Folkeparken (PeoplePark) you will find 4 or 5 small lakes, all at different levels, meaning water flows from one lake to the next. Often you will find a lot of birds at the upper lake expecting to get some bread.
After arriving at Roskilde station you very soon will get an impressiv view of three big jars, the Roskildejars by Peter Brandes. They are placed at Hestetorvet. My 5 year old grandchild is sitting ind front of the jars, giving an impression of their magnitude.
The building to the left is Roskilde Station.
The trains serving the public at the line Roskilde - Næstved are not modern. They look like the train at the photo. Waiting at the station to go to Roskilde means you will see the train coming from Roskilde heading for Køge and Næstved. The trains are crossing each other at the next station.
Let me get this blog about the city of Roskilde in Denmark and the municipality of Roskilde started today. I am living in the most southern part of this very long municipality with 80.000 inhabitants.
Sometimes I go to Roskilde by train. Gadstrup Railway Station is the local and last station before Roskilde.
You see it at the photo on a grey day of december.
Welcome to this blog.
I am living between Roskilde and Køge, at the southern border of Roskilde municipality. Some days I go to Roskilde, some others to Køge. I have decided to expand this blog also to show photos from Køge.
