Something creepy in Aarhus

This week photo challenge: Creepy,  takes me back to Aarhus. When I was travelling in Aarhus, I made it a point to visit the city’s art museum and Denmark’s oldest public art museum – ARos Aarhus Kunstmuseum. This 10-storey building is about 15-minute (or more) walk from the train station/city centre. The art museum offers visitors a variety of exhibitions and each floor brings you to different sections of arts, some of which are very challenging and mindblowing. In other words, CREEPY and STRANGE. And quoting the website, “ARos is a house of art where our guests can be pleased, enlightened and challenged. The architecture is of international class. The same is the art. And both offer experiences of high carat: from light to thrill, from attitude to entertainment, from joy to challenge.” Here are some of the pictures I took 🙂 I am not an art expert but I enjoy viewing eccentric artwork such as Kvium’s masterpieces. According to Wikipedia, Kvium started creating grotesque realistic works depicting the darker side of life in early 1980s.

Weekly photo challenge: Enveloped

Envelop; verb (used with object), enveloped, enveloping. to surround entirely. Lately, I haven’t gone out to take decent photos. So for this week photo challenge, I decided to post pictures I took when I was travelling in Aarhus last December. On 24 Dec 2014, I explored small part of Edslev and walked through the misty woods. On Christmas day, I took another walk into the woods and as I walked, I smiled knowing that I had a good sleep when snow flakes came to play and enveloped the earth.

White Christmas 2014

I had a good sleep until I was awakened about 7.30am. Come and look outside the window, Mom Lea whispered to my morning face. I jumped out of bed and the rest is history. I didn’t expect snow to fall in Aarhus that soon but farmor was positive it is going to be a white Christmas on Dec 25th. This is just a perfect ending to my trip and for that I am blessed.

A general view of Aarhus

I had been a victim of an unfortunate event but I managed to arrive Aarhus on Dec 18 at 6.40pm, about three hours behind schedule. To cut a long story short, I missed my noon bus because I got lost looking for a train station. Anyway, the wind in this part of Jutland was colder than in Copenhagen when I arrived. Currently, it reads 6°C for both regions and according to my weather forecast, snow is expected in Copenhagen on Thursday while Aarhus will be snowing on Saturday. I am contemplating extending my stay. *sigh*
