Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast


Old and New
Cranes over London

This week I was so excited to be back in London, if only for two days.  How to squeeze the most out of such a brief visit when we spent so much time getting there, another chunk spent leaving?  Travel, it eats time.  Plus, I wasn’t particularly interested in seeing the sights.  I wanted to see family and friends.  I wanted to turn the clock back and drop in and see old neighbours, walk the old streets and embrace the sites familiar to me.

Alas, such was not to be.  We made plans, we changed plans. During this brief time, staying in the London Bridge area, I found myself walking the streets of London in a New York state of mind, comparing and contrasting these two wonderful cities which make up my New York-London daze.

Here or there, New York or London?  This is a question I am often asked.  I no longer ask it of myself if only because it implies a choice I do not have.  It is what it is and we are we are.

Good days, bad days, they come and they go, wherever we happen to be!
