Urban contrasts


And than there is the city.  Rio de Janeiro city centre with its buildings and parks. An abundant mix of old and new and the King palms competing with modern heights. The city spreads out into the mountains, and, as time goes by and space becomes an increasingly scarce resource, the building start to reach into the sky.

ANGELIKA :
O céu não está à mão de semear...
Mas também não é impossível de ser alcançado por pessoas como tu.

Um beijo.

Lindo blog.
Gosto muito de fotos e há muitas fotos bem captadas por aqui.
Parabéns!
Os contrastes urbanos dão charme às cidades. O progresso faz com que a área urbana se esgote e daí surgem os altos edifícios.

Grata pela visita.

Beijo.
