A curious mix of light, airy - and darkly oppressive.

The organisation around a narrow courtyard resembles a more densely urban setting familiar since the 16th century in certain British cities (Edinburgh Old Town, London, Newcastle, Leeds are familiar to me) except that the earlier examples are without exception much narrower, gloomier and likely to be dirtier; some of them even being thoroughfares under two metres wide . . . The inclusion of reflective material over the entrance and the open balconies make the Oslo version a far more attractive space, though whether they will still be standing in 2220 is another matter WinkSmile

The wide balconies soften the claustrophobia 😁

Splendid image, Malc. Practical if not aesthetically pleasing apart from the bicycle which is both of course 👍

A very well seen composition here, Malc' and excellent mono as always.

terrific light and tones for this image
my kind of a restricted urban space organization
the bike adds 'life' to the scene too

Shadows, reflections and shapes a very good combination but, my fave bit has to be that bike, it adds so much to this image Malc.

Lots of layers and shapes to look at, and all building up into a super image. Lovely mono tones with the bicycle acting as the focal point.

A lovely piece of mono work, the subject nicely framed, Malc 👍
Your comments about socks & sandals on my 'Looking cool on a Camel!' have been noted! I don't usually wear socks & sandals together, but being exposed to the hot sun in the desert, didn't want to get the tops of my feet burnt, them not being accustomed to such conditions 😁

I like the clean lines of the architecture images you have shown lately--- modern, spaces , clean and uncluttered--
Fortunately, the lines in this image do not confuse and redirect the eye-- a most interesting study!

Very good young Malc. I think i know what this is, it's one of those newfangled filing cabinets
for storing people in. I think they were invented in the last century to help property developers
and land owners become millionaires. Smile

An excellent summarizing of modern living quarters, aka flats, Dave. Pete Seeger's song comes to mind...

Sorry Malc - end of the day rush ......... what they said! 🥴
A cracking image but alas I'm out of gongs. Have a virtual one old fruit; that nice Mr Billywobblebottom says they're better than the real thing and he's always thrilled when Samantha gives it a polish. 🥴 🤣 🏆

If you did a colour version of this you could re cycle it.

I have two colour versions, Alan - one of which may get its own viewing one day, along with another b&w version taken slightly to the right of this one...
