Maintaining Boundaries

Last Saturday, I joined a group of fellow shutterbugs – pros and hobbyists alike, for the annual Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photowalk Day.

The venue was at Hjerl Hede, an open air museum that recreates life and the surroundings of an old Danish village. Here, you can see and experience how Danish rural life was like hundreds of years ago. Among the many interesting things that you can find here are furnished village houses, farms, stables, flour mill, a convenience store and craft shops. Every element was set with great attention to detail to foster an authentic experience. The museum covers a large area so you can easily spend a whole afternoon here going in from house to house. In the summer months, the place comes to life with actors in costume playing as local villagers going about their daily routines. Sadly, there weren’t any actors when we visited since it’s officially autumn now in Denmark – although I could swear that it did feel quite like summer last weekend. I am not complaining! :)

Below are some of the photos I took on location.  I already saw most of the photos that the other photographers took and it was really interesting to see how we all had very different takes on the subject. It’s always inspiring to see how others see the world. Overall, I had a great time. It was nice meeting new interesting people and catching up with a few whom I haven’t seen in a while.

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Boundaries.”

Sometimes photography blurs the boundary between photographer and subject.The boundaries aren’t always explicit like in some of these photos but there is almost always a barrier between me and things that I photograph. Barriers that are either of a physical or metaphorical kind. Camera, fences, feelings, fear, distance.

  1. What wonderful photos Sheryl, I particularly like the photos of the geraniums on the window sill and the ivy on the wall. I also really like the wooden cogs, mind you all of the photos are great :-)
