Cityscapes - Pervez Photography

Cities are such a unique place to shoot. As centers of mass populations, they are an embodiment of the human experiment: they show us how we live together, how we form a society, but uniquely so. This is because cities inevitably include diverse groups of people, spanning race, class, ethnicity, gender, religion, etc. It is hard to not find a particular group of people in these metropolises. And in this sea of humanity, there are also majestic buildings, parks, and unique architecture. In all of this, people function with normalcy. In that sense, cities remind me that we are capable of living with one another, despite our differences, and that there is nothing unusual about it. City photography has the potential to capture all of this, and that is simply magical.

St. Paul's Cathedral as shot from the London Bridge after sunset. I was about to jump on a train from the London Bridge station to head back to my cousin's place an hour outside of London, but before I did, I decided to see how St. Paul's looked soon after sunset. I was not disappointed at all. The sky was simply spectacular. My mini-tripod wasn't holding the camera steady enough, as it was pretty windy on the London Bridge, so I just used the bridge as my tripod and snapped this shot. I love the contrast between the dark blue sky and the lights shining brightly on St. Paul's. I missed my train, and got home a bit late, but this view made it well worth it!
