Focus on Architecture VII

By saltireblue    
I am in the habit of uploading one image a week, always on a Monday. Why? No idea, I just do, that's all...
So what is today? Yep, Tuesday. This does not denote a change in the long-running habit, rather a state known in medical circles as old and forgetful. I can only put it down to changing my socks on Saturday instead of Friday, as is usual...

A recent image of a new office building along Oslo's waterfront. A perfect candidate for the graphic b&w treatment.

Many thanks for all the comments, awards and votes on my previus effort - much appreciated as always.

Thanks for bothering.

Changing socks once a week is a bad habit - once a month is perfectly adequate.
Excellent architectural shot for a Tuesday.

Glass makes buildings merge with the sky so that only the bare bones remain. Nice one.

I saw this in the thumbnails, knew it was yours then immediately checked my desk top calendar to make sure it was Tuesday not Monday! I would go for 'Senilityblue' as a name change.

At least you have resisted any lingering temptation to name this Stairway to anywhere at all, though a first brief glance rather invokes the words fire escape before the brain slowly engages first gear and realisation kicks in with the first mouthful of hot tea Smile

This is extremely striking, perfectly composed and eminently suited to your favourite treatment. Since this is really, according to your own admission, a Monday upload, I would love to give you my remaining Monday UA. Unfortunately my status as a fellow member of the Old-and-Forgetfuls has ensured that my Monday UA has now lapsed so you'd better have the first of Tuesday's before I forget that too Grin

A building made entirely of wire. Most unusual.

Excellent image and composition, an image that leaves me wanting to see more of this building to confirm it's atheistic architectural nature.
As for the socks situation & memory, it's a no win situation. The solution is not to wear socks 😁😁 I always give awards on a Wednesday so here is one for you 🏆 opps What day is it? Join the club😊😊

Can't remember what people were joking about, so I'll just say I love the diagonal and the storeys running up and away. A clever architectural device that makes the whole thing apparently see-through.

I've all on to remember what day it is, and with this lockdown business and going out very little it makes matters worse! 😬 A very striking and stark mono, Malc, lotsa lines and angles, making a great abstract 😃👍

Very unusual construction. On first viewing I thought a fire-escape, then realized the steps were too far apart. I would love to see front to take it all in. Great mono and framing, Malc.

Nice graphic architectural image, great reflections. I'd like to see more of this building perhaps from a pace or two to the right and angled to show the front which looks like it has some imteresting shapes.

I avoid the sock changing problem by not wearing them between April and October, but then I'm not in Norway!

Why wear socks anyway, you only have to change them ? always gets lost in the wash Wink

So, do you put on a different pair, or just swap them over from one foot to the other?
Splendid bit of photographology by the way.
Very nice.

Please Mr Salty Bluemac may I print this off and colour it in? ✏️ 🖍
I like your picture. It is very nice. My Aunty says I have to give you this big shiny thing. I hope you like it. 🏆
