Shot from my garden today.
Earlier this year I was asked to show my photos at two local libraries in Roskilde municipality in October and November 2012. I should be Artist of the Month. I said yes – and the photos are now to be seen at the first library, Gundsømagvle Bibliotek. But - if this is too far away from you I have added a slideshow.
Which photo are the best? I don’t know, but I like this one:
This is the old Gadstrup a winterday.
Here is the slideshow:

Jeg håber alle accepterer at være vist her – ellers send en mail (se page: contact) og billedet vil blive fjernet.
After harvest a lot of straws are left behind. Some machine – I understand it is a roundpressmachine (one word in danish) - made a lot of rolls, compressing the straws for easier transportation. I also understand that a squarepresser uses more energy than the roundpresser, but squarepressed straws are cheaper to transport because of their form.
Arne Haugen Sørensen is a famous Danish artist. Today he was in Roskilde participating in the opening of an exhibition of water-colour paintings. He is 80 years old and still going strong, as you see. He was busy signing books, cards and posters and seemed to enjoy beeing in Roskilde.
The exhibition, “Den passionerede”, ends September 16th, 2012. Information at Palæfløjen, Roskilde Kunstforening.
At Arne Haugen Sørensen you can see some of his painting.
This is Barbara and Dennis visiting Gadstrup Train Station a few days ago. They live near Chicago.
A month ago I got a very short email from Barbara. She asked: "Do you know anything of Ole Toppenberg, who was stationmaster at Gadstrup station in 1920? He was my husbands great-grandfather.
I did not know anything at that time, but I tried to look into the census from 1921. Nothing was found. But there was a solution. In a book about Gadstrup, I could read that Gadstrup station was in the municipality of Snoldelev and not in Gadstrup. Funny, but so it was.
Now I could find Ole Toppenborg in the census from 1921 as well as 1925 and 1930. He and the family had their home at the station.
Barbara got the information as well as other informations I found.
Barbara and Dennis has planned a genealogical trip for some time - and we met in Gadstrup having fine hours together.
Below you see Ole Toppenberg, Dennis’ great-grandfather, and Gadstrup station around 1920. You also find other photos from the visit.
