Image of the Week 19-25 May 2013

The Little Mermaid is a statue depicting a mermaid, in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark. Based on the fairy tale of the same name by Hans Christian Andersen, the small and unimposing statue is a Copenhagen icon and has been a major tourist attraction since 1913.

As a true travel photographer at heart, the statue holds a specific awe as I remember always spending my nights out in Copenhagen walking around and taking pictures of the night life and the buildings. For some strange reason I always ended up here at the mermaid at around 5am when the sun started to rise. I can still remember the feeling of wonder looking at the mermaid. In this picture, I wanted to capture the feeling of the mermaid as she looks out over the ocean. The calm and serenity of the morning. I am sure that those who travelled with me, felt the same about her. In the next few weeks I will be showcasing some more Copenhagen memories and moments, so stay tuned and see what comes next.
