Architectural Mix

Walking the sidewalks, I am frequently stunned as I look up to see the next new skyscrapers shining high above the century old flats, the surrounding structures reflecting on their glassy skins.

Focused on the architectural mix, my mind soon wanders to the stories the aging buildings could tell, the fate of their future, and the lives that are connected to them.  Then, looking up to the new structures I wonder what they will be like when they become the old and something new is replacing them.

Our lives are all connected then and now.  Shared memories, a common view slightly altered, the sidewalks we walk.

Looking at these buildings I wonder who is/was/will be on the other side of the window.
