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 Oberbaum Bridge in Berlin, with the East Side Gallery to the right. A colleague told me of a good walk in Berlin that would get me to a nice spot to watch the sun go down. She knew her stuff - after walking for an hour through really lively neighborhoods, I came to the Oberbaum Bridge right around sunset time. A little long exposure helped me get the red sky in this shot, as the water, sun, and clouds played nicely with my slow shutter speed.
