When Old Meets New

The constant struggle of most cities in the United States is... do you keep the old or build something new? On one of my 'walk abouts' the beautiful contrast of this was highlighted by the golden sunbeams that shone on this historic church that was dwarfed by the new high-rises looming around it in downtown Charlotte. I love the contrast of the warm feeling of the gold rays of the sun on the church's brick and stain glass in contrast to the the steel and glass of the high rises around it.
