        Yes! (I always preferring the old, although I was enamoured of the Hancock Building when I was a kid–until the shiny plates of glass started falling off and crashing to the ground.)

    Your capture of the golden light, is lovely. Just from the photo before I read your description, I thought the photo was a church. Nicely done!
    Your photos always “tell” great stories. Thank you for your care in composition. Not easy to do. Cheers 😊👍

    I see I’m not the only one who immediately noticed the juxtaposition of old and new architecture in this image. I will look forward to your post of the views from the deck!

    The fact that the former customs house is now a luxury hotel speaks volumes about the quality of the architecture of the time. I am not sure that today’s administrative barracks will have the same fate.

    Why don’t we construct buildings like this anymore? Is it too costly? Historic buildings are so charming. I like the way you composed this in the morning light against the modern buildings in the background. Take good care Chris!

      I think it would cost too much. And it’s easier to just use concrete. But concrete and steel lack the charm that this has. Thank you for your kind words, my friend. Take care.
