May 23: Malmöhus 2
Further exploration around the castle.
I love everything about this: the contrast of the old and new brick textures, the stout concrete casing around the ribbon windows, the complex spatial arrangement of the bridges, the subtly protruding bay window at the first level, the glimpse of the moat beyond.
I also love the rhythms and formal variety of the openings and protrusions in this wall. And the bashful bike.
Late gate sun.
New meets old. But look, there's a sheer glass window at the top right of the old castle. I'm not sure I ever really noticed that before.
Check out the shaft of water-reflected sunlight above the full sunlight.
So red and so green green!
I was going to exit via this outer road, but I didn't want to rile the geese, who were, as you can see, dominating the way. So I turned around and went back into the courtyard.
The glow of the sun already once reflecting off brick and thus turned extra-red.

Rust sun at the northwestern gate.
A closer look at the same brick sun as diffused up into the vault.
Geese (I think these are geese, aren't they, not ducks?) and castle. A little red-blue-green action.
