past and present

I find scenes like this one particularly interesting. There is something about the contrast of past and present that really intrigues me. Maybe it’s just my love of history – seeing it preserved in the “concrete jungle” of Seoul is, in my opinion, something to ponder. In a sea of glass, home to millions of people and thousands of i-phones, one can, if only for a moment, travel back in time. However, a quick glance at the horizon is a reminder of just how much everything has changed in a relatively short amount of time.

Contemplation aside, it makes for an interesting picture.
