On the first day, I made Ras take me to see the famous Little Mermaid statue (which I dutifully said in my best terrible English-accented Danish before he'd take me there - this was a running theme), which was beautiful. According to the guidebook, the poor girl has had her head chopped off numerous times, arms lopped off on a few occasions and has been painted a shade of bright red since she was first put there in 1913. I can't see why though, I thought she was utterly charming!

Not to be confused with 'Den Lille Jomfrue', which means "The Little Virgin" Just a small snippet of information I picked up whilst there!
As well as visiting my favourite childhood character, we also spent some time wandering around the coutryard of Amalienborg, the Royal Palace. We didn't see much apart from a rather un-impressed looking Royal Guard...
We also spotted the "Occupy Copenhagen" encampment outside the "Rådhuspladsen" (town hall) and I tried my photography skills out on a local neon-lit building.
|Ok, it's not fantastic. It's out of focus, shakey and it was dark. But...it was dark, I was waiting to cross the road and I had no tripod! I still like it though :)|
Since this is a modelling blog, I shall now post this:

This shot was taken as part of a fantastic shoot with the above named creatives, Joe and Ania. I decided I wanted to go for the crazy eyebrows as it's something that I've seen pop up every so often in magazines and on the catwalk.
| Yay! Orange trousers and a teal blouse! Colour-tastic!|

I'll be adding a few more Copenhagen pictures tomorrow, including a stunning picture I took in the "Glyptoteket" of 4 paintings done at Denmark's very first female Art Nude Studio Day!
