Interesting mixture of new and old architecture. The little pawn shop does seem a bit rundown but its does create a nice contrast against the modern buildings in the background. Nice shot Ally.

This is completely different from my photographic style. I can see a huge contrast between the old buildings in the foreground and the skyscrapers in the background. You captured natural and good looking colors! Thank you for sharing!
With Friendly Regards,

You have contintued with your normal photography interest on architecture and buildings and this one displays the old colonial shophouse still retaining its original form whereas the next unit has been facelifted.
It may well be that this shopowner has kept it for generations to do this jewelry trade. Same business, same shop and same style, for many years, perhaps!
Well done. TFS

This is a well composed image with an interesting subject!
I always like to see how new contrasts old in different cities, here the Chinese jewellers shop really stands out on the background of Kuala Lumpur skyline!

Very good idea you had for this one to play with the contrast between the ultramodern architecture of the background buildings and the oldish style of the jewelry shop.
Thanks for sharing.
