What a difference a year makes

The photo on the left is our Riverwalk clock tower reflected in the water, one year ago. The photo on the right is the wedding chapel being built in front of the tower today. You can barely see the top of the clock tower above the chapel’s roof. I will miss the long stretches of water without buildings to clutter the scene. The chapel is at one end of what is now fast becoming a “restaurant row”.
Great shots to show the difference. It is a pity that this lovely view is blocked now ;-)

It's a sad thing when something simple and beautiful is set aside in he name of "progress". It happens here all the time.

@ludwigsdiana @rhernan it was interesting to me that when I posted this on Facebook several people just wanted to know when the restaurants were going to open. They missed my point completely. I appreciate you commenting!

Too bad this is now called progress. I love the reflections of the clock tower.

I wouldn't call it 'progress'.

Great comparison collage. One thing for certain, things always change.

sometimes progress isn't all that progressive. Nice diptych to show the difference

What a shame to have blocked that wonderful view and reflection on the water . Amazing how nowadays beauty of the landscape is not considered if they can squeeze another building in !! Nice diptych , I can empathise with you !

Sad to cover up the bell too

Time and progress marches on but not always for the better, much prefer the original view as you do Lou Ann:)

A proper wedding chapel... it must be a very pretty place to build that there....building work is so invasive sometimes!
January 15th, 2019  
Good shots. Change is not always for the better

The chapel isn’t even pretty, such a loss of a view, progress is not always a bonus. I like the comparison

Lovely triptych - a shame to lose your lovely view of the clock tower.

The first view is sooooo lovely, sad to cover that up ow.

That is very sad, it looked like a lovely spot

@mittens @grammyn @beryl @joansmor @pcoulson @happypat @mave @sugarmuser @ziggy77 @happysnaps @nicolecampbell @radiogirl @bkbinthecity @kwind I am especially sad because this place was reasonably close for me to drive to so I could get photos of the water features and birds. In short order it will be teeming with people. Several restaurants, the wedding chapel, an event center, all will be open and full of people. Thank you so much for commenting, I appreciate it more than you know.

Maybe it will fall into the water.
