Old and new make the warp and woof of every moment. There is no thread that is not a twist of these two strands.
First of all I would like to thank you for all your gloriously delicate colours from last week – so creative and so interesting – and so many!
This week, Amy is challenging us to look for “Old and New”, and now we’re looking forward to your interpretation.
In the opener, Hovdala Castle, Sweden, a place to remember the old and celebrate in new ways. But Old and New can be the contrast of architecture, fashion, collections, treasures… in one photo or multiple photos. Please visit Amy for beautiful views and inspiration!
I have consulted the archives, and these all represent moments where I really was stricken by the perspective of Old and New.
Tbilisi, Georgia – is a very old city that is being totally rebuilt. Sometimes the combinations are not that great, but old and new is always very striking.
Everywhere in Europe, you will find Old and New together.
Some combinations hurt more than others – This beautiful old building was combined with a new hotel – Umeå, Sweden.
Tbilisi again – the old fortress looking down on the new city.
In fact, when I think of old and new – two cities come to mind directly – and here they are. And, there is a reason to why one of them is called ”The Eternal City”…
I hope you will enjoy the challenge, and we are looking forward to interesting posts!
Stay tuned for Tina’s (Travels and Trifles) LAPC #100 on June 6th.

Superb gallery … and the mixture that can be found in beautiful Tbilisi. Never been to Umeå. I’m struggling with the topic, trying to think outside the box and I don’t get anywhere this week, so I wait for the 100th.
Wonderful shots, Ann Christine.
Thank you, Rupali – so glad you enjoyed them!
I love the photos you chose to use for the prompt. My favorite is the first one. I adore how you capture leading lines with people in your photos. Nice work!
So glad you enjoyed them, Shelley! Wishing you a peaceful and creative weekend!
Same to you!
Hi, A-C. Lovely choices. I figured you’d include Tbilisi!! I am hoping you can go back there before long. Take care and be well.
Thank you, Patti! The future…someday…
I really enjoyed your selections. The detail is incredible. As always your photographs make me feel as if I’ve been there 🙂
Now that is a warming comment! Thank you so much!
You’re most welcome.
Great comparisons. Well done.
Thank you, John! It was a fun challenge with many possibilities.
I recognize the eternal city of course (what a lovely shot) but the modern skyline I don’t recognize at all! I thought someplace Arabic at first since I haven’t spent any time there but the Chinese characters on one of the buildings has me so curious. Where on earth its this city?
Ah, yes – Shanghai, Pudong skyline. In rain. So you were on the right track!
Ah, never been there! Did you enjoy it?
I can’t say I did. It was a very short visit and raining!
Thank you, MM.
You’re right, Ann-Christine. We see the combinations of old and new everywhere we go. In a sense, it’s good, as long as we preserve the historical sites. Excellent collection here!
So glad you enjoyed them, Miriam! And I agree with you – it’s essential to preserve the historical sites.
I hope all the countries would do that, Ann-Christine!
You have some real beauties, A-C.
Thank you, Janet.
What neat places to wander around!
Thank you – yes I would agree!
The photo of the building next to the hotel is almost shocking!
Isn’t it? It is just …too much..
What a lovely selection of photos Ann Christine!
Glad you enjoyed them!
It’s all around us, isn’t it? Maybe not so much in Sweden? 🙂 🙂 Sending hugs!
In Sweden as well, but not as elaborate or beautiful structures as in southern Europe of course! And hugs to you as well! Lovely weather here today – almost mediterranian…
the essence of old and new, A C!
Ah, thank you, Sue!
Great contrasts here. That third photo is particularly arresting – and unsettling.
Margaret, glad you found them interesting. I must say many combinations of old and new seem unsettling to me. But, I love to combine old and new in my home. That is a different thing.
beautiful images of old and new Ann-Christine. i’m drawn to the treasures of Tbilisi and the modern hotel structure next to a charming old building. thank you for a wonderful share 🙂
So glad you liked them, Wilma. Old and new is indeed to be found everywhere.
Terrific choices as always Ann-Christine. I love that shot of the old fortress. It almost looks ready to tumble down the hill onto the new city!
Ha, yes, it might really do that. If I ever return- which I would love to- I wonder what city will meet me. Many things will be different. Thank you, Tina, for loving the Tblisi shot.
Beautiful examples. I like the next-to-last one best, but all are remarkable places.
I am glad you like my choices, and of course we all love Rome😉
Perfect for the challenge Ann-Chrisrine!!!
Thank you, Paulo!
Beautiful series, Ann-Christine. I love the opening image especially. I agree, everywhere in Europe, you will find Old and New together. 🙂 Tbilisi is just magnificent!
Thank you, Amy, happy you like the opener, as it is 10 minutes from my home!
Nice selection, hope that you are well and safe.
Thank you! Yes, I am well, and hope you are too.
