“Four-bike exchange”

Copenhagen
Børsbygningen, Slotsholmen : København, Danmark (Stock Exchange Building, Castle Islet : Copenhagen, Denmark) – 1 July 2008.

I found myself in the Danish capital on Canada Day in 2008. I fully admit, however, that my visit was completely by design.

A few minutes after the boat from DFDS Canal Tours set off from Gammel Strand, we swung east and south on Frederiksholms Kanal, and passed by the Børsen (Royal Exchange). A detailed historical account of the building can be found here. After the main building was constructed from 1619-1623, the famous dragon spire with the tails of four dragons intertwined to form the vertical was added in 1625.

From a distance, I saw four bicyclists approaching, and I tried to photograph all four in the gaps, as shown here. Also, the four dragons at the base were apparently huffing and puffing on this fine early-summer afternoon.
