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.
thanks for the pingback!
Nice images! Thanks for the pingback!
Awesome pics… Thanks for pingback… 🙂
This is an amazing series. Each one tells a story.

Loved ’em all – esp. the ivy one. & thanks for the pingback
Nice series, Ruth. It shows there’s so much more to an urban setting than, say, traffic or tall buildings.
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.
Great selection Ruth and the first one sets the tone so beautifully! A tough challenge if you ask me . . . .
Thanks for the pingback @Ruth
Amazing photos, Rutheh!

I need the first one framed for my desk at work.
Urban – I think you nailed it with all of the pictures.
those leaves, the sunset…ugh.. beautiful
Great choice, Ruth. Love that slogan on the wall, and the sunset to die for. 🙂
Great pics:) ‘Specially like the first two.
the Madonna behind the fence – an important finding!
Enjoyed the entire series, but the 3rd one must have spoken to me. It was the one I went back to and lingered.
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.
A great selection of shots displaying lots of Urban intrepetations 🙂
Nice work Ruth, hasn’t urban been great? I’ve loved getting to see the ordinary real places around the world.
A wonderful, eclectic cross-section of urban life. Thanks for the pingback!
There are many ways to describe ‘Urban’. You have captured urban life! I for one enjoyed the photos. Thanks for the pingback!
Beautiful images. Love the silhouette of the city – and the business of Chinatown.
Wow – all of those are great examples of ‘urban’.
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! 🙂

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??
Ruth E Hendricks
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!
Help. How do I submit. I went to tumbler Zbd they say sirry they need to verify my email.
Great gallery! I love the message in the irst shot!
Wonderful selections of photos.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
