Contradictions


It's a good thing, 
when one can find something from the past~
standing firm in the present.

You have such a way of finding those unique things in every day life! I would have never thought about that when seeing that building, but now that you mention it, it is a comforting thought. :)

some things are still worth holding on to. glad there are still a few folks around who feel this way. :o)

Farm Girl said...

That is a cool picture. I like the old building standing there strong.

Dawn I have always loved the clash of two centuries in architecture it has always amazed me. Shiny and new vs. worn yet rugged and the old will probably will last longer. B

Sharon said...

It almost looks out of place, and yet still looks like it belongs, kind of like Grandma with all the kids!

Debbie said...

I love the older buildings. I think they had more style.

I like seeing a blending of old and new. This old building looks handsome with the sleek modern buildings behind it.

It's a good thing that someone can take something from the past which is still standing firm and appreciate it... otherwise I might be single today! lol

You have such amazing insight Dawn, I love the way you think!

I agree! We need roots as well as a future.

Allison said...

True! I like this shot. And I love the thought. xoxo

Not sure about Banks anymore. They have sold all their buildings and just rent them here.

Alan said...

I love "old and new in juxtaposition" shots. I tried to create a mini-theme on those lines from my Melbourne photos, but they weren't that awesome, truthfully.

I like it......

Bill S. said...

I agree. It is like taking a grandchild looking at birds or fishing. Family roots should run deep and secure as some of the buildings.

I love it! I find that old architecture are such jems among modern buildings. So sad that people want to tear them down, for ugly boxy skyscrapers. Great job :) B
