Looking for OPEC
January's challenge in the flickr group La Vuelta al Mundo is architecture. My idea is to take photos of some of the newer buildings around Vienna.
Yesterday I had an errand in the neighbourhood of OPEC Headquarter, a building from the 1960'es (top photo - the small building w. blue pillars). However, when I got closer I saw that it is in the process of being demolished.
At home, I looked up the new address and it was not far from the old place. I had and errand in the area again today and I got a shot of the new headquarter squeezed in between the some other gray buildings (bottom photo). Architecture-wise not so interesting, I think, at least not from the outside.
I do hope that the rest of the month will be a little more sunny than so far. Things look somehow better in sunshine.
