The Hospital

Drive-by shooting...with my camera, that is.

This classically-styled building is the National Hospital of Iceland, opened in 1930 and designed by architect Guðjón Samúelsson who also created Hallgrímskirkju (click here for a charming set of photos of that church and Guðjón's natural inspirations for it's design.) I think this is a beautiful facade, thaough unfortunately the original front entrance with it's tree-lined walkway is not used anymore.

gorgeous colors... it looks very cold and very quiet.

Beautiful Photo. I like the contrast between the road on movement and the hospital still and calm. The colors also provide a sense of relief.
