City I love!

Then
Clean. Cool. Calm. Chlorophyll-filled-trees.
Now
Cluttered. Coolers. Chaos. Covered lakes.

Then
Canopies. Chill. Carefree. Clear-skies
Now
Cars.Clogged. Careless. Calories.

Then
Coffee. Chickpet. Cubbon Park. Commercial street.
Now
Cafès. Commercial malls. Clubbing. Chanel.

Then
Clerks. Class-middle. Cultural mix. Content.
Now
Computer professionals. Class- elite. Cosmopolitan. Cement.

Then
Care. Concern. Camaraderie. Conservation.
Now
Commission. Competition. Communities-gated.  Calamities-awaited!

  4. Times change through the years. Sadly, not always for the best. Sometimes, I'd like to go back to simpler days, without all the modern technology. We did okay without it. Nice post. Your blog is colorful too, with its sweet hearts.

  5. I live in a college town and we go through the changes just from semesters to summer. I like both sides of my city, though, so it's fun to watch the changes.
