Old & New

The older building in the foreground is the Saint Thomas Church and the newer building in the background is 666 5th Avenue, a retail and office complex.

No question today. Have a good Wednesday.

Great contrast: old and new, dark and light, ying and yang.

cela fait toujours un superbe effet, entre la vieille architecture et le cote moderne

it is always a great effect, between the old architecture and modern symbol

That's a super juxtaposition between dark and light, lines, angles, modern and old...

Great shot, in other words.

I love the dark against the light in this photo, a real study in contrasts.

It's kind of funny how the building with the satanic address would be so light and bright.
Hope your Wednesday was a good one Ming.

I really like this one, the front building looks so ominous and foreboding next to the sweet and pure white one.
