The Fall is Here — but Here We Call it Autumn

Photo copyright Francis Barker 2020

In England the holiday season is all but over. It’s been short and difficult.

Now with autumn upon us, it’s hard to fathom out where this crazy year has been taking us and how fast it’s gone by — just as well, perhaps.

One of the things I have been musing upon is the name autumn, a borrowing from French, one of many thousands of French words in the English language. The older I get, the more I prefer the Stateside term ‘fall’, it is so much more expressive and, well, native.

Either way, it’s never been more important to get out and about in the fresh air when you can, especially on a glorious autumn, or fall, day.

Halmtorvet, Vesterbro — Life in Copenhagen (Reblog)

I’m back with another Vesterbro post 🙂 This time I’ll share some images from Halmtorvet, which is adjacent to Istedgade. You’ll see below it’s got much more of a chill and relaxed atmosphere compared to Istedgade. It’s actually the first big street I walked on when I arrived in Copenhagen, thanks to its vicinity to […]
