Old Reflected in New

Bucharest offers a beautiful eclectic mix of architecture that I hope to capture and share on my photoblog in the weeks to come. 

Today's image merely illustrates the contrast of old and new I saw on my walk this evening for James' Weekend Reflections.

Bucharest, 2011

This is such a great image...such subtle contrasts of the old and new so many can walk past without notice...very cool shot, Francisca!

The old in the shiny new, beautiful.
Have a good time in Europe. You seem so much closer now.

You captured the reflection of old architecture in the new building. I think it's perfect for this meme. Have a nice weekend, Francesca!

Oh I've missed you, Francisca! And you are in Bucharest! How exciting! Thank you so much for having me in your thoughts. I am safe and doing fine in Tokyo. The earthquake was huge but thankfully no tsunami. I hope you are having a wonderful time in europe :-)

Very nicely done. And nice to hear from you. And I'll look forward to your Bucharest photos!

Re your comment about golf...many courses around here won't let you walk - for 2 reasons: 1) the pro who runs the golf shop makes much of his/her money from renting golf carts; and 2) walking, they say, slows down play.

At our course, one can walk, but it's difficult as there are large gaps between holes. I like to walk, except in the summer when it's very hot. We have our own golf cart which we use on our own course at no charge. Nice.

Pas d'arrêt, pas même pas d'émerveiller ! (référence au panneau circulation sur la photo ;D )

Nice work, dear Francesca...

Beautiful reflection. I love the contrast.

I very much like the contrast of old and new here! I look forward to seeing more of Bucharest.

Beautifully framed. Appears so crisp one would think your looking through a window not at a reflection.

James said...

I'm a sucker for old buildings but newer ones are usually better for reflections. It's nice that you captured the best of both!

I'm learning so much -- had no idea that Bucharest would be such a fascinating and beautiful city.
