A visual contrast in old and new

The image below provides quite a stark contrast between old and new. This is a featured “editors’ choice” image in the Reuters gallery app for the iPad today. This is an incredible app. Visual literacy meets current events, all at the flick of your finger. It’s a weird feeling looking at all the images of terrible flooding in southern China today. I feel simultaneously connected and impotent. Can I even conceive of a world before “current events” and instantaneous communication?

    What a fantastic photo. How often do you get to see the contrast between the old and the new. Instant communication has absolutely changed our world. I can’t imagine living without being able to see what is going on around the world from my living room.
