London And Blending The New And Old

Today I am sharing a few shots from my trip London. Every-time I visit I see something in a new light.

And this time I was marvelling at the way new and old blends so beautifully. All the reflections and shadows the building throw, blended with gorgeous old buildings that would have many a tale to tell.

    I must say I’ve come to quite like the mix of old and modern in cities now.

    You are so right, they really do compliment each other – I love the angle of the first one x

    I always love walking among London’s new buildings – such a fantastic contrast with the old. The view looking back from Tower Bridge is my favourite as you can see the city’s most modern additions set against St Paul’s.But I always love the way you can be walking around the City and the Shard or the Walkie Talkie will suddenly pop out from behind buildings or between streets.

    Love love love London. I used to work in Moorgate and it looks just like this with old buildings next to sharply contrasted new ones but complimentary in a weird kind of way!

    Lovely photos! This is exactly what we did last time we went to London – wandered around and photographed all the stunning new buildings and taking in the contrast between the old and the new.

    I love walking in the City with its mixture of old and new buildings. Love the way the old buildings are reflected off the new in the first photo. There’s always so much to look at in London isn’t there? 🙂

    I love London and have deep roots there. My ancestors lived in the City of London. There is a medieval church, St Olaves in Hart Street, with skulls over the doorway! Very spooky but I love how it is in the shadow of the Gherkin.

      Ooh I was stood for ages looking at that church it is fascinating, my family are from the East End, Bow, so I feel exactly the same x

    London’s such a beautiful wealth of history. Every time I walk round the centre, I can’t help thinking about all the millions upon millions of people who’ve tramped through the same place. I love your pictures!
