Hanging on to History, 4

This week I am featuring a few shots of houses and traditional buildings trying to survive amidst their modern urban setting.

Here an old temple wall temporarily holds back the advance of more building.

You are making this series even more powerful than I had expected. Another strong statement shot.

It's as though those buildings are trying to push their way in. I guess they are.

Yes, the photo tells the story. I hope the old survives, not just because it is old, but also because it is beautiful, as shown in this image.

A very creative framing which tells the shocking contrast between these buildings! Excellent!

The strength of this wall screams S-T-O-P ... but I wonder for how long.
