Downtown Contrast

Downtown Salt Lake City has undergone some major reconstruction efforts in the last few years. The newer buildings form a stark contrast between the city’s older structures. Many of the latter have fallen into disuse or are awaiting demolition to make way for more “improvements”.

As I walked along the downtown streets the other day, I came upon what I felt was a striking illustration and visual perspective of the transience of our environment – both natural and manufactured. It caused me to reflect on how we tend to celebrate the death of our past, despite what we lose in the process.
