First a belated thanks to Wim for including my shot in last month's challenge, wasn't expecting that!

 

This is good challenge and something of a reality check for me, as I have plenty of shots with City in the keywords, but too few that capture the essence of the word or the atmosphere of the place - time to get busy!

 

But, from what I have available (click for full size images): -

Oops I hit a red arrow on Doc Kumar's post. By accident.

Could someone give him at least one back?

 

Love the tram in Strasbourg!

My first attempt at a challenge... The majority of my photos are city based at the moment, so it seems silly not to join in and give it a go!  :) Here goes...

 

1.) Lower Manhattan skyline at night covered with low lying fog.

2.) A mural, pizza shop and vandalised ATM, in Lower East Side.
