LOL! I expected to open up the full frame and see a bride with something old, new, borrowed, blue!!!
Love seeing the old architecture.
There is something similar that I posted on my blog (http://haitidreams.wordpress.com/2013/02/22/vision-for-a-new-haiti-cathedral-winning-competition-designs-exhibition-22313/) which is about a competition for rebuilding Haiti's cathedral in Port-au-Prince.
Good job here. The new is sympathetic with the old.
The juxtaposition of the old and new is always interesting, sometimes surprising, and often has a tale to tell.
It must feel old! I like to see old and new combined.
Looks rather weird but I guess one could get used to it. The old certainly has a lot more character than the new!Re your comment: 200 Baptist churches is just the tip of the iceberg...there are hundreds of others also!
Looks funky... but a least they didn't knock her down.
I kind of like it. It looks like they put some thought into blending the two styles at least with the color.
Great capture! I love the old building -- lot more character than the dull, modern buildings, but maybe that's just because the old love the old???? Hope you've had a great weekend, Jack!
Great idea to keep it! it adds a special touch !
Side by side they seems to speak volumes about the cultural mindset that built them
Fabulous contrast- they both look grand (I used to see myself as a bit of a wordsmith in my youth Jack but nit much of a musician, sadly despite working at a music college now!)
Glad they retained this beautiful facade!
Old and new is always fascinating, beautiful buildings!
And it looks as if they did a good job integrating the two. Such wonderful craftsmanship on the old!
Looks like they did an imaginative job integrating this lovely old frontage. Good to see.
Quite well done, I like them both!
If only cities would retain more of the old and build less of the new... but I quite like your blend of the two very different eras.
I'll take the something old.
So a new building was constructed around and behind the old facade? The design works.
Fine contrast between old and new. Good light in this shot.
Beautiful building and I like both facades!Great angle in this image!Léia
At first glance, the combination of old and new is rather odd looking. Love the facade of the older structure.
I breath a huge sigh of relief whenever I see something left behind Jack.. Just a little reminder of more elegant times oui! This works very well..
