Girl, Running

June 2nd, 2011 - Copenhagen, Denmark

 

The spiral walk in the Rundetaarn, completed in 1642, is unique in European architecture - the 209 metre long spiral ramp winds seven and a half turns round the hollow core of the tower, and forms the only connection between the individual parts of the building (an observatory and church, still used, and a library which has been converted into a beautiful gallery area). At the very top, more than a hundred feet above the street, is a platform which gives wonderful views over Copenhagen.

 

But of course children are not really interested in such historical details - they all seem to want to do only one thing : to run down - or in the case of this particularly energetic girl - to run up the spiral as fast as they can.
