Weekly Photo Challenge: Transmogrify

Out with the old, in with the new!

This week’s challenge was a tough one, I had to think about it for a bit. Then I remembered a photo I took when I was in Alexandria, Egypt this past summer. It was of an old building that was transformed into rubble to make room for a new one. It’s a new trend in Egypt to take down small 3-5 story buildings and Transmogrify them into 10-15 stories, modernized buildings.

I was astound when I saw this view, not because of the men working without any safety precautions (hey, work is work right?) but how in the world did they take down a building, in a small alleyway, between two other buildings? That’s talent!

This is what that rubble from above photo will transmogrify into. This is a view from my aunt’s balcony, in this photo you can see the more modernized buildings towards the back.

(P.S. there’s a bit of the old English architectural influences hidden between some of the buildings, do you see it?)
