The very ancient lives quite snugly with the very modern in this area. Here, around the ruins of the old London Wall (Roman wall) and a 14th century church that was bombed during WWII, modern buildings have sprung up.
Below is a juxtaposition I don't see often. The remains of London's Roman wall, a pond with Water Lily pads, and St Giles Cripplegate Church, (where John Milton is buried and Oliver Cromwell got married) flanked by two concrete high-rises.
Below is a reflection off an office window with a seagull soaring in the corner for good effect.
Below are some very posh and mod apartments.
Close up of Andrewes House, which is one of a number of apartment buildings that overlooks the gardens, fountain, moat and pond near the Barbican Arts Centre (Europe's largest performing arts venue).
