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.

Sunset off the Charles Bridge in Prague, with the Prague Castle in the background. I was in Prague for 2 days, and I tried my best to be near the Charles Bridge at sunset each day. This is why. The statues on the bridge are so spectacular and unique (I've never seen any structure like it anywhere, honestly), and they make for great foregrounds for photos capturing the incredible buildings in the distance. Toss in a colorful sky, and you've got the makings of really distinct images, like this one.
