Black and white # 20 Old London Meets New London

Here is a shot of the stunning St Pancras Hotel, peering over the stark modern building of the British Library. Modernity, history, all blending into one stormy sky. Black and White #20 London Old and New.

About susan sheldon

I am an explorer. It's taken me awhile to realise this. But I love capturing bits of our wonderful world with my camera, travelling through time and history, always returning to write, or paint what I've discovered. I use my Leica and my iPhone to capture images, and with those images I try to hold on to a feeling, a moment in our busy lives. Sometimes those moments bring me into the past, others into the studio to paint, or back to the old typewriter to try to use words to capture what the camera has done for me already. One of my goals in my blog is to have a space to take a breath away from our frantic world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.

    Such a contrast, though, of course, my eyes read it as the St. Pancreas Hotel. Hmm, wonder if such a place would offer free diabetes checks…

  2. Lol…now I got into serious trouble! A friend of mine picked up my nickname for the place, St Pancreas..lol..and then used it with all seriousness as its proper name. My my…run for the hills!

  3. This is exactly what I’m looking forward to most in London–the meeting of old and new. Really, I’m so very excited and your pics are feeding into it! 🙂

    • Hi SmallHouse…London has it everywhere! At first I was really upset about the changes, but now, I’ve grown to love them. You must go to Spitafield’s market, ( my next blog post) and see the old and the new there. You will get a good view of the Gerkin from the street!
      Enjoy, but rest your neck! Mine always gets tired from looking up and bumping into people whilst doing that! 🙂

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
