Last week I entered this photo for Leanne & Laura’s «Monochrome Madness Challenge». 
Østblokka - The Eastern Bloc
Østblokka – The Eastern Bloc
The unofficial name (which is basically only used/known by locals) of this apartment complex in Oslo is «Østblokka».
Østblokka means Eastern Bloc and it refers to the architectural style of the building, which resembles the style used in the old communist countries of Europe – in the Eastern Block. 
Make sure to check out Leanne and Laura’s Monochrome Madness. This week I sent them a B&W photo of some kids that are playing football in Jerusalem – some you might have seen it in my blog before, but there’s a lot of entries from other bloggers that are worth a look.
