070/2011 moonlit memories

070/2011 moonlit memories, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

I tried to catch the crescent of the moon above the art museum that I visited today, only to realize that it was far too small and far away to feature in this photo. In reality, the scene reminded me very much of another scene I shot in India last year:

Both building are constructed of white stone, but in very different styles. This one, a very modern, functional, straight-lined nordic structure from the 1960s, contrasts with the intricately decorated Mughal masterpiece of the 17th century. Interesting how a fleeting moment, and the moon shining above, created the association in my memory.
