I have recently had a chance to visit an old industrial building Nordkraft in the city of Aalborg that is changing into a modern cultural and sport center. All the old brick walls and steel constructions of the old building were preserved and complemented by nowadays building materials resulting in a really interesting mixture of styles. Our guide through the building said that either you love it or hate it; nothing in between. I think he was right, it is a very impressive building worth visiting. I took several photos but the one I post today is particularly interesting thanks to the converging lines in the whole image: the lights and ceiling cooling boxes, the metal bars on the walls and the tables on the floor all point to the same point in the middle of the frame. The lighting in the room was mixed and little bit distracting, so it was quite natural to covert it to black and white. Camera spec: Canon 40D with Tokina 11-16 2.8 at 11mm, F5.6 @ 1/25, ISO 400.
