Copenhagen Images, February 2012

|No walking? Forget it, Red Man, remember the words|
of Søren Kierkegaard (see column right).
Anyway, I don't bother to write "official" training reports after e.g. having walked 2.5 kilometres to the library. That doesn't mean, however, that I don't use my camera during everyday walks like that. This and future blog post are dedicated those pictures; I'll update posts for each month now and then.
For even more pictures, you can always go to the training status post and find links to official marches and training sessions, like e.g. this night-time march.

|"Go home, Yankee hipster." This mural in Nørrebro District is by Shepard Fairey, the guy with the iconic 2008 election poster for Barrack Obama, "Hope". Fairey made himself hugely unpopular among Danish leftwing activists when he did this painting. An all-together silly story. Read about it here.|
