The Bird’s Nest Olympic Stadium in Beijing is one of the most photographed structures in the world. I’m sure I’ll come across many more photos of the stadium in the coming months, leading up to the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
In terms of capturing the stadium itself, these photos aren’t that great, especially when compared to many others that I’ve seen. You can’t see the whole stadium. The fence is in the way. You can’t see much of the sky, but it seems to be smoggy.
But despite that, these photos really work.
I really like the way that céd has captured people and vehicles in the foreground. That adds a lot of interest to the picture. I especially like the photo with the soldier and the one with the bulldozer.
These photos definitely work well as a set. Each picture works well by itself, but together, they add something to the whole.
