    Topic : Urban

    I'm a diehard urbanist. From gleaming skyscrapers and skylines to gritty back alleys and the "wrong side of the tracks", photography is an incredible medium to understand the city. Freezing the often frenetic pace of urban life and forcing us to focus on an particular aspect of the city, images can help to make sense of the intensity that surrounds (many of) us.

    What makes your city yours? And what makes it amazing, depressing and everything in between? As long as it's a photo of that which contributes to urbanity, I would love to see it.

    Contest will end on May 15th at 2:00 P.M. Seattle, Washington time.

    There have been some incredible images recently, so best of luck!

    Located at the crest of a small hill overlooking Atlanta's Arts Center complex, the Castle is one of this city's most architecturally unique buildings. Designed and built by Ferdinand McMillan as his retirement home, which he called Fort Peace, the building attracted attention almost as soon as construction began. At McMillan's death in 1920, it was noted as a city landmark at a time when the full flush of the Victorian architectural heritage in all its diversity still defined the face of Atlanta.

    The monuments in DC are an integral part of the city. They are not just for tourists, they are part of what makes the city what it is.

    Nyc!

    "The largest urban area in the United States is that of New York City." (Wikipedia). When I think of NYC, I think of busyness as well as traffic, construction, signs, sidewalk vendors, museums … and, of course, people, tall buildings, the Statue of Liberty and the World Trade Center. And, if you look closely, this image actually capture it all! The line of tourists are waiting for the ferry to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. In the rear, already towering over nearby buildings, (which are reflected in its glass windows), are the impressive first 60+/- stories of the new One World Trade Center, (aka Freedom Tower), as it stood on Saturday (5/21/11).

    I was intrigued by the contrast between the old city building and the rather ugly new shops that take up the street level.
