Photographer's Note

Aarhusianere (or Århusianere in modern spelling)...

... that's how the Danes call the inhabitants of Århus, the second city of Denmark with over 280.000 inhabitants, the biggest city of Jutland and actually an older city than Copenhagen.

The old name of Århus is "Aros", which means rivermouth, because the city started in Vikingtimes by a river (Århus å) which you see on the left side on this photo.

In spring or summertime, on a sunny day, the terraces by this river are really crowded. (This picture is only 2 months old, but the weather is totally different now.)

It 's really expensive to drink a beer on a terrace here (actually on most places in Denmark), so that's why the left side on the picture is even more crowded and populair - especially by young people, because here, there are now tables and chairs, and here you can just sit by the riverside and bring your own beer.

In the seventies, the community of Århus decided to fill in the river and to build a big road for the traffic, but in the nineties, the reopened the river again.

Thank God, cause it really is a very hot and attractive place.

I took this picture again on automatic without flash, I think. I cropped it a little bit, made it sharper and increased the contrast somewhat, but not very much, cause the sun helped me a lot.
