    I love that picture of the Parisian Metro stop. Anything stopping me using that as a desktop background?

  • Virtual Agent, January 10, 2011

    I especially liked the one taken by Charles-Etienne Pascal. It is rather a simple shot, but the way it was stylized makes the photography evocatively haunting.

    some great shots there, i love urban photography

  • Fix The Sky, January 14, 2011

    Beautiful examples of urban photography. It’s a difficult subject to capture, as the enviroment’s always moving and changing. I think that’s half the beauty of it, though; Freeze-framing the chaos.

  • Awesome collection! i love how each photo tells a story. Now I just want to take my camera and take a walk around my neighborhood to see if I can get shots as wonderful as these. Thanks, and keep ‘em coming!

  • Robert Miranda, January 20, 2011
