Corner View - Contrast

This week Jane's Corner View is on Dana's theme: Contrast.

Je suis souvent surprise de la rapidité avec laquelle de nouvelles constructions émergent dans les villes anglaises, de leur proximité avec des bâtiments plus anciens, de la mixité des genres et des époques, offrant parfois des contrastes saisissants de dimensions et de styles!

I'm often surprised how fast new developments are built in the UK, the proximity with ancient buildings, the mix of influence and epoch, sometimes offering amazing contrast of dimensions and styles!

More Contrasts over here.

Celui-ci est incroyable... on dirait un phto-montage tellement le contraste est violent !!! Mais c'est toute l'histoire des villes.. Bon mercredi !

That´s true. I reconize that the last time I visited London, I was impressed who Foster Tower was seen just behind the Tower of London. Photos were really a contrast.

Le contraste est saisissant ... la modernité galopante ... je ne vois pas d'autres mots pour évoquer cela !

I love the contrast of the old and new buildings. Your photo is nice too, sharp and crisp. I apologize I didn't have you on my CV blog roll I just added you to it. Smile... xoxo

Wow! I agree, this could be a poster perfect photo for this weeks CV.

Miniature and Maxi.
The new looks like it can go on forever, while I yearn more for the proportion and dignity of the old.

Happy week to you.

Great shot!
Le contrast dans l'archi c'est souvent ce qui fait sa richesse ou bien son point d'orgue.
Bien vue!
