This is hardly the first image I've posted of the new Oslo Opera House, but this was actually the first time I've set foot on the building!
With architecture like this, its very tempting to focus on lines, geometry, reflections in the large window panes.
Added interest: A man walking away from the main entrance, D-SLR
camera in hand - reflected in the windows. New buildings in the
background, with a crane signalling the continuing development of this
area of Oslo harbour.
This one begged for an arty black & white treatment, so it got one. I'm content with the end result.
The Norwegian opera house was selected as the "World Building of
the Year" in the category "Culture" during the
"World Architecture Festival" in Barcelona around the same
time as this photo was taken.
