Steeple and crane


A view of the old and the new in Boston, represented by the almost 200 year old Park Street Church and a luxe condo building going up behind it. Other views of the construction can be seen here.

The building in front of the crane is Suffolk Law School and was featured in yesterday's lantern and Wednesday doorway.

The contrasts in this photo are many and the scene looks good too. The crane makes an impression not unlike the church steeple. Nice photo.

The steeple and the crane against the very blue sky captured and composed so well. I always photograph construction or town changes, it's a good way of documentng changes in the landscape.

The steeple and the crane seem to be competing. I usually don't like modern buildings as you may have read on my blog but in your country I find such contrasts quite interesting and aesthetic. Have a nice Sunday and thank you for visiting my blog.
