Cities, Old Vs New

Old Vs New

Old Vs New

[Click any image to see a larger version]

On my way to work today I noticed that there is a contrast of architecture. Not sure how I feel about all the new glass towers I see growing out of the ground. I may be a little nostalgic and like the older buildings their construction was solid and their spaces grand. The new buildings seem to be designed with only functionality in mind. Well that is my two cents for the day.

I managed to dig out my old Canon Powershot SD500, that is what I have in my pocket. This camera has had some fun adventures however I think it maybe time for a new one. Anyone have any suggestions for a small pocket camera one that allows for advanced settings like aperture and shutter priority?

  1. Very nice shot. I love old buildings too, but I appreciate the juxtaposition of old and new in growing cities as long as it is done thoughtfully. When I visited New York city, I was enthralled with the way that the layers of buildings framed each other, old within new within old, as you looked from all different vantage points. I would love to go there again.

    • Thanks, lately here in Toronto it seems there are so many glass buildings. Just seems like they lack character. Thanks for the comments

  2. Ya love the traditional buildings. I find the newer buildings often seem soulless by comparison.
