Wow, what a dramatic sky! I love the juxtaposition of the old tower against the modern cranes. Although combined with the quote, it makes them sort of creepy!

Great mixture of text and image. The cranes do almost look like they could come alive in the night.

That's so interesting, M. Is this the cathedral with the frieze? The text, as usual is perfect.

Walter Neiger said...

nice ballet of cranes under a powerful sky.

The cranes look delicate against the solidity of the old tower ... that and the quote have a way of turning 'normal' upside down. Marvelous work ... for me, one of your best.

kobico, the antagonism of new and old is very distinctive in London because everything is so cramped. You can't take a picture of the one without having the other in the frame too.

CiB, to me cranes always seem like huge dinosaurs - I am not so sure what they do at night when nobody is looking, ;-)

Paula, the tower is adjacent to St. Paul's Cathedral in London, I am not sure if it is a part of the cathedral.

Joan Elizabeth, thank you :-)

AB said...

Nice perspective. It looks as if the church is in danger of having its pinnacles knocked off by the gang of cranes.

Martina said...

AB, ah, that's a dimension I did not think about before.

From me too, cranes are like giant metallic monsters.
I like the title! but I don't think they don't change into human...

Martina said...

ana barata, you are sure? ;-)

pando, thank you :-)
