Weekly Photo Challenge : Windows

Photo Challenge once again, and an extremely versatile topic once more, open to interpretation of all sorts. I’ve opted for the more conventional approach this week, so will stay with the obvious or maybe not so obvious 🙂 interpretation, which is windows, windows in buildings :-). But seeing that its conventional in the interpretation, I figured it needed something else too :-). So, fasten your seatbelts, make yourselves comfortable, we’re heading off to the city of Malmo in Sweden, or Scandinavia if you prefer a more wide angled view. Malmo is a city that is connected to Copenhagen in Denmark by the Oresund Bridge, which happens to be the longest rail and road bridge in Europe.
Coincidentally, the building that this post refers to is the highest skyscraper in Sweden and the Nordic countries. Turning Torso is a building designed by Spanish Engineer/ Architect Santiago Calatrava. 54 stories in height, comprising nine 5 storey pentagon segments, each twisting clockwise around a vertical core as the building rises 190m with a full 90 deg twist between the bottom and top floors. Essentially a multi use building with offices on the lower two segments and apratments in the rest.
Unfortunately, my wide angle lens was not wide enough to capture the entire building in one shot, though it is pretty close :-). The windows foloow the same rhythm on each of these nine segments creating an amazing graphic on the twisting building.
I visited the site a few years ago, and my submission today is some of the images I shot at the time……………the journey continues…………….
