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.

A cannon and the American flag at sunrise at Federal Hill in Baltimore. I was staying with my college roommate for an evening en route to visiting my parents in New Jersey. I left very early in the morning. As I walked to the car, the sun started rising and I saw the canon and flag in the distance. Quickly, I pulled out my camera and ran closer to get the shot before the sun came over the horizon. Fortunately, I pulled off the shot just in time - maybe 2 minutes later, the sun was high up and the beautiful silhouette and sky color was gone.
