National Bank of Romania Reflected

 Bucharest, 2011

Besides the architecture, lines, and reflection of old in new, what I like about this image is the bright hues in the reflection contrasted with the dull shaded light of the bank building. 

Linking with James' Weekend Reflections.

Wow, that's beautiful. Wonder how much Rumania has changed after they were freed (I visited during the communistic period)

Terrific as always, Francisca! Love the contrast in colors and, as you've written, the old and the new! All of that and lovely skies as well! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Ooh I like everything about this photo and don't even think the façade is dull!

A reflection of the old in the new is fantastic - it is hard to imagine a modern Bucharest developing in
the way New York has developed integrating the
solid looking, and the light weight of architecture.

what's the glass curved building?

Can't have a bank made of glass LOL

Last night, i watch the Octopus man from Philippines. I am always interested in Siamese twins.

The shed like shape is interesting - gives a peek of other buildings behind it. I also like that it is only the top portion that is all glass so that on street level it (possibly) fits in with its surroundings better than a glass facade would.

Beautiful reflection! I wonder if they built that building with the reflection of the bank building in mind? Fabulous angle, Fransisca :-D
