Hanging on to History, 5

Posted by
GJC (Kyoto, Japan) on 1 February 2013 in Cityscape & Urban.

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

Here we see a brave old house holding on as developers continue to devour the old neighborhood.

I feel sad for this little house! I know we can't stop all progress, but this just feels so wrong!

A marvelous collection for this series ... and I hope the residents of the home had good sets of earplugs!
