Oh, that is pretty unfortunate. Makes me so sad.

I've not seen a hiarding like that before. Happy WW

Sad, but I think it's happening everywhere. Here in Cambodia the Buddhist Institute with its magnificent Khmer-style architecture was dwarfed by the ugly and massive casino-hotel building.

That is a fabulous juxtaposition! Although it may be sad in some ways, at least they didn't knock the castle down. It's amazing to see the layers of history in some cities. That's not as much the case here in Phoenix!

BTW, my WW post is up.

That's fantastic! And thank you for visiting my blog on my birthday, I certainly needed that! :)

Kisses and hugs to you!

It's an interesting juxtapositio. I don't think it's bad to have both together. The most interesting cities are though that blend old and new, and there is much beautiful modern architecture out there.

Frankfurt was so badly bombed during WWII that very little remains of it's original architecture. I find it amazing that this tower is still there at all. It is the Eschenheimer Turm built in 1428. Today it houses a cafe.

I kinda like the contrast of the old and new, it makes me appreciate both all the more.

That's an amazing view. That tall tower going up behind the old one makes me think of a grown son looking after his dad!

Looks like a castle tower straight ahead :)

Thanks for the well wishes for my daughter, she has been discharged from hospital and is currently under home observation.

Looks like a wonderful city. Great architecture!

M3 said...

That is the one thing I remember most about Frankfurt, the new buildings right next to the old.

Good one, Shannon.
