Architecture reflections




The "old" reflected by the "new"

The straight lines of the modern box
provide a clean surface
for reflecting the century-old architecture.
 
-redeeming value-

bon weekend!

It's like if the new architecture wanted to pay a tribute to the old one! Great shot!
Bon week-end!

They are both beautiful in their own way Genie - The new has the straight clean lines - the old that wonderful sense of history and romantic style.

I agree with Malyss. It appears the new is giving tribute to the old.

I agree with Malyss -- the new paying tribute to the old! Terrific capture as always, Genie! Have a lovely evening and a wonderful weekend, mon amie!

Hugs

You don't miss a trick, Genie!
Moi, je préfère l'ancien. Toi aussi, n'est-ce pas?

Starman said...

An interesting view.

Deborah said...

Moi, je prefere les deux, l'ancien et la moderne. Toutes ensembles.

What a brava idee to take a photo and return with a copy for the subject of the picture. Such a thoughtful gift! I've done this before and it is always so welcome. Then later to return and find it hanging on the wall as a badge of honor is priceless.

And the angels all over and up above is a wonderful way to see Paris...avec les macarons aussi. I'm enjoying your blog Genie.

Although I'm a fan of "The Old", I love the composition of this shot. Warm wishes.

Jack said...

This is excellent, Genie. I have a modern/traditional reflection shot lined up, but it keeps getting bounced for a more current reflection shot.

Its like looking out of a new window world into an old one. It seems strange.

Kind of like when I look in the mirror except I can't the new look back! Still old ha ha.
