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.
