Old meets New - in Downtown Vancouer (2)

I will try to give you a bit of an idea what our city centre looks like (will upload a few more).
This is the Marine Building with great architectural details - now surrounded by glass towers and mirrored in their windows.

    it is always very interesting to see this combination "old" and "new" - especially with architecture, but not only with that

    Good interesting picture.
    I like the ornaments of the center building - Art Déco, I guess, right?

    great juxtaposition.


  • Walter Zeis 06/16/2010 10:24

    das ist eine sehr charakteristische historische architektur, die du uns neben den "spiegelpalästen" zeigst.

    That's a thing I like about FC, you get to see so much of the world and on a personal level too! Good idea to show us your interpretation of this great city. I love the very blue glass and the marine building is a nice shape with good detail on the edges.
  • s. sabine krause 06/16/2010 9:50

    what great exciting and ambitious architectural landmarks! love the many different shades of blue in it: the dial of the clock in the other shot, and here it's the glassy blue of the building on the right – very "maritime"-looking to me, which seems perfect for a "city by the sea"! beautiful ornaments on the marine building, and its architecture is really impressive: it looks as though constructed of bulky, irregular stairs! beautiful shadowplay and composition, too, with the very pretty and elegant streetlight in the foreground! hugs, sabine.

    Old meets new.
    Impressive perspective to show the combination.
    Well done, Adele.
    many hugs

    Amazing how the charm and charisma of the old buildings remain as the new glass structures take over the city centres. Excellent perspective in this shot
  • Lucy Trachsel 06/16/2010 7:57

    I love those art nouveau buildings! New York was a lovely surprise in that respect, too.
    Am looking forward to the sight seeing you are offering :-).
  • Ruth Hutsteiner 06/16/2010 7:15

    Old and new, living in perfect harmony.
