The both photos are from Shangai, in China, but the picture on the left is in 1990 and the other is in 2010. 

The images show a zone of the city that is placed in the neighborhood of a river, but the first the city is ancient and  the second is very modern and futurist.

In the picture one there are a lot of small houses made of brick, all of them are close together, but in the second there are big skyscrapers made of glass with advertising in the front and many colors.
In the old city there are a “kind” of island with green space and parks, but in the recent city there are only high buildings like the Perla Tower, a communication’s tower of 263 meters.
Another difference between the photos is the weather, because in the first it’s cloudy ant in the second it’s completely clear. The first picture is more illuminated because it’s daytime but in the second is already night.
Another difference between them is than in picture number one there are more ships that in the second one.

I think that the city has changed so much for the money and the tourists. I prefer the first one because there are more space and I think is less oppressive.

Both pictures show rooms which people use, but for different functions. The room on the left is tidy, clean and well organised but in the room on the right, everything is all over the place. The room on the left could possibly belong to a professional person because it is obviuos that money has been spent to give it this appearence whereas the room on the right probabily belongs to a student, because the furniture is very low-cost, and no care has been taken to organise it. The image on the left looks like a waiting room, or somewhere where somebody could sit and read, because there is only a chair in it, but in contrast the image on the right is a bedroom because it has a bed in it. If I had the choice , I would prefer to use the room on the left rather than than the room on the right, but realistically my room is more like that on the right.
