November Challenge

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

The topic for the November challenge is simply "The City" - can be any aspect of any city - we are not referring to London financial district - Normal rules - each contender can provide up to 3 images, all to be from Alamy; BUT; as I am away the end of November, the closing date for entries will be Midnight on Sunday 25th November.

 

Examples of images could include:

 

 

London cycling - A cyclist cycling in Trafalgar Square, Central London city centre, England UK Stock Photo

 

 

Two arab women walk along the Corniche at dusk, Abu Dhabi city, Abu Dhabi, UAE Stock Photo

 

The white rose symbol of the house of York, the city of York, and Yorkshire, UK - Stock Image

 

 

New York taxi, motion blur, fifth avenue, New York city, USA - Stock Image

 

 

Good luck!

A tough one as there are so many aspects to a city.

 

First, the landmark that epitomizes the city of Toronto.  People doing the Edge Walk on the Top of the CN Tower.  Don't think I'd ever be brave enough.

Second:  Toronto Blue Jays baseball fans heading into the Rogers Centre (more commonly called The Dome) for a baseball game.

Third:  Interior of Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal.

A challenge for me as I have so few. Anyway, I'll have a go.

This challenge kinda rings a bell, but cities always have something new to offer.

 

Laid-back city, Vancouver

NOTE: Sorry about the edits, Kumar. I realized that I had submitted some of the original picks to other city-related challenges. Time for some fresh ones. Done now.

Lovely Paris from on top of Notre Dame. A triumph of photographic technique as I was being jostled and bumped by, at a conservative estimate, a billion tourists all intent on wrecking my photo.

And the Boab tree in Darwin City.

The Tree was planted in the late 1800s and mark the site of Darwin city first primary school:

Difficult as I don't have many city pics, which is strange.  Anyway, here's my 3:

Once a city boy, now a staunch city avoider, so hope Sidmouth (more town than city) will qualify...

I find this a really difficult challenge as I could pick so many and choosing just 3 images is really difficult! But my 3 are:

 

Whitechapel High Street in East London

Yes.. I think you already have a difficult decision picking just 8. And I think it will be difficult for the rest of us choosing just 1 of your chosen 8!

The only city I've really visited 'photographically' is the one nearby, London, of which I have over 6000 images. Difficult to know where to start with a subject so vast.

 

Vibrant, exciting, dangerous.
