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.

After a lot of fun with my new ND filters, I decided to take a normal shot of the Tidal Basin after sunset. Fortunately, I was in time to catch some last moments of magic hour....the red disappeared within a minute of me snapping this shot. I love this area of town, especially in the evenings - minus Cherry Blossom season, its always calm and peaceful.
