On Friday I was thinking that I’d go out and take some new landscape photos this weekend, but the weekend has been grey, wet and cold, so an executive decision was made: stay at home. Binge watching won this round…
I didn’t want to post a standard landscape photo for WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge this week, so I chose this photo of the National Theatre building in Oslo. “Kill them all” was a play at the theatre.
The National Theatre in Oslo (Norwegian: Nationaltheatret) is one of Norway’s largest and most prominent venues for performance of dramatic arts. – Wikipedia
My entry for:
Cool. Did you see the play?
No, I never see plays.
I’ve never been inside the National Theatre, but I’ve seen two plays before though, at some other theatre.
Aha. I don’t see many plays either. Just wondering what this one was about.
Theatre, music, writing, drawing and pretty much every creative form are landscapes in themselves…landscape of the human race and world in a sense. Very clever interpretation of the challenge, Cardinal. Hope you had a good time at home this weekend.
You’re right, creative landscapes are also landscapes. I like your way of thinking Miss Mabel.
It’s been a good weekend: gym on Friday, gym on Saturday, gym on Sunday, plus a lot of binge watching and cleaning the apartment. What about you, what have you been up to this weekend? Anything exciting?
Sounds like you had a big landscape of a weekend, C. Cleaning the apartment is always good. You feel productive afterwards 😀 Nothing exciting for me this weekend. Not feeling the best and have been sitting around for most part. Also did the watching and got groceries for the week.
Big landscape…? I’d say it was more of a microcosmos. 😀
Now it’s Schmonday already..
So much to look at in this photo!
Are you suggesting that we should consider to kill them all after all? 😀
Well, no!!! 😇 But, I do wonder what that play is about!
Reminds me of a Dead Kennedys song.
Kill the poor?
That explains it, that it’s a play title. Reminds me of Joseph Conrad’s line “Exterminate all the brutes!”. But since you don’t see plays, I don’t recommend that you read Conrad’s Heart of Darkness either.
I won’t read it. I have three Murakami books to read here now. I’m guessing that it’ll take me approximately 5-10 years.
Suggestive image and words……………!
Perhaps a good suggestion too? 🙂
This photo is really striking because of the people reflected in the surface of the sign.
I’m glad it was the title of a play and not some social commentary … although perhaps the play is a social commentary, or maybe just a tirade against the upcoming mosquito season.
I’m digressing, I think I need a nap.
My ex and my son (who was newborn at the time) is in there too. I wouldn’t want to kill any of them! 😀
It’s totally awesome picture, CG! I would agree with the title if it were mosquitoes, like Joanne suggests LOL
There’s not many mosquitoes in Oslo, but there’s plenty of other blood-sucking creatures!
I am glad you decided to keep them alive 😀 You, nutter! Thank you for the link. It is converging alright 😀
The pleasure was all mine Paula.

I agree…killing can not be a solution….
Don’t be such a Hindu. 😀
YIKES – cannot imagine what the play is like! But your cityscape is wonderful, the reflections are great.
Thank you Tina. The play was probably horrible: state sponsored art usually is.
So many levels and layers in this image. In fact it could be a play itself – all the characters are there…
The sad thing is that both the characters that brought happiness to my life is in that photo, so there’s definitely material there for a play…
I like this photo. Stay close to the ones that need you and always remember the good times. Whatever happens.
Unfortunately the good times are long time gone…
Then I hope much better times will come.
They won’t, but thanks anyway Andy, (I’m a realist)
We can always hope. And you have a lot going for you.
Thank you Sedge.
Your title could not be more perfect ~ brilliant thought (and not a bad shot either!!).
Thank you very much for the great feedback Dalo.
That’s a pretty dramatic title for a play.
Yes, it’s a very dramatic title.
Lovely shot, though.
Extreme times calls for extreme measures, isn’t that what they claim?
