Weekly Photo Challenge: Urban

I could sift through thousands of urban photographs for this week’s challenge: urban.

There are the suburban shots of the family in my file folders, too.

Choosing a cohesive urban series was my personal challenge. The most searched term on my blog and a true urban image is NYC Rooftops at Night  which I posted in 2009.

I live and work in the city of Pittsburgh, driving across bridges and past demolitions, playgrounds and chain link fences. There are skyscrapers and empty lots. When I visit my sister in lower Manhattan there are  hundreds more images to shoot and file. And why not throw in a couple from Zagreb where Matthew lives?

So much for a cohesive series.  Here are my urban selections for this week’s challenge. A couple will be familiar if you’ve followed me for more than a year.

    • You are so right and a friend suggested I challenge the hs students with this same theme of urban. Should be good to see what they come up with in response.

  3. Enjoyed the entire series, but the 3rd one must have spoken to me. It was the one I went back to and lingered.

  4. As ALWAYS … excellent work. I learn so much from studying your pictures … Now I just need to translate that to my work. 🙂
    Congratulations on the superb images.

  5. All are terrific shots! I would have loved to add urban shots from other cities I’ve been to, but I had a busy weekend and just didn’t have the time to pull them together so I appreciate those of you who managed it. 🙂 TY for the pingback! 🙂

  8. Hi,

    my name is Terence and I posted this week’s photo challenge. I would like to put together a gallery of (some of) the submissions and wanted to ask your for permission to include your shot! If so, could you send me a link or the file?


    • Hi Terence. Great challenge this week- you may use any or all of my photos posted. Not sure which one you wee thinking. If I send the file directly, where should I email it??

      • Hey Ruth,

        the best thing would be if you directly submit it to the gallery so that you can add location, title, and URL to your blog here:


        there is a submit button next to the title. Feel free to choose your personal favorite. Slowly we are getting a nice number of submissions – so looking very much forward to yours!
