weekly photo challenge: urban

This week’s photo challenge is guest hosted by Terence S. Jones of A Guy With a Camera

Urban. The idea behind urban photography is to photograph your city and the streets where you grew up as they are. Unlike the photoshopped pictures to which we are accustomed nowadays, urban photography presents a more direct, unaltered view of life. It is about documenting urban living space and how people adapt their environment to certain needs and vice versa. Urban photography shots provide cultural, social, economical, and ecological context all at once, and can capture social tension.

    • It seems that small towns invite greater simplicity to this weeks theme … Especially being surrounded by wheat and corn fields as well as grazing cattle :)
