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 over the Votive Church in Vienna. Planned to eat dinner not far from this beautiful building near sunset so I could grab this shot. It was under construction, so there was a gigantic Coke sign over much of the front of the building (I guess they need the corporate sponsorship?), so I had to walk around a little to get an angle where the trees covered that monstrosity. Fortunately, they actually add to the shot, and serve as a nice foreground to make the church stand out even more.
