Reflections or Distortions!?...


How do old buildings see new buildings? and how new see old ones?... New buildings don't get reflected in old buildings... but the old, most of the times, are reflected on the new ones... If you cant see your self it probable that you think you look like what you see; So, new buildings must think they look like old buildings but old buildings will probably think their distortions of what they really are...

a bit of philosophy today ;) i love , the shot !

I too like the philosophy bit here, and the photo of course:) Every time I see newish and less than pretty buildings in the city opposite old and charming ones I always think that at least the people living in the modern building has a grand view. And the inhabitants of the old building, even if they have a very less than pretty view, they at least live in a charming old building brimming with ambiance.

Delightful.. the text and photos.. I really like the last 3 posts..

The American Circus ones are so colorful and the angle makes the perspective unusual and very interesting.

Another beauty of a photo! Brought to you by a probably dull, modern building. Isn't synergy great?
