An iconic (and rather controversial) merger of the old and the new, the classical and the ultra-modern!
Until next time…happy travels, no matter where life takes you!
You can see other ‘merged’ entries here.
wonderful shot Madhu! This is indeed one of the best examples of old and new architecture merging. When we’d visited the Louvre my daughter 4 then had asked “why have they made this new building in this beautiful old palace?” . I guess she is a purist in taste 🙂
I am amazed at how astute children are today! Or is it that they don’t hesitate to speak their minds? Thank you for the comment 🙂
I think its the latter 🙂

That is such a perfect shot for the theme! You know I’ve been playing “catchup” so I’ve see quite a few “merge” pics over the past couple of days…this one is definitely one of the very best…such a unique shot 🙂
Thank you so much Anne 🙂
