    Looking at these superimposed views .the new has lost beauty and become something to lookaway from rather that look at .
    Old paintings of London I look at the bridges retains pleasing forms of building .that allow you to look back to an era and imagine .who could ever think that a design of the tower of London could be built on a bridge and lived in .just to look out of the window and see the changing tides below you .and to gaze at river traffic .and not to be affected by time .
