This week, Sofia invites us to take a closer look at urban environments
what to post? I shall pick a few city images taken over the years, old,modern, in no particular order.
First up, a few images from London enduring city of old and new:
Here, laid out ahead of us, is Matera in Basilicata:
and seen here, the new over the very old Sassi of Matera:
A few old buildings seen from a hotel terrace in Seville:
Now we’ll’ see a few cities from high viewpoints
Here is Porto
And now Lisbon, seen from the Alfama district:
And shown recently, Lucca from the Torre Guinigi:
And finally, Florence laid before you below the Duomo, with urban builder at work:
You had me at Tower Bridge, Sue. My favourite view in London.
A very nice urban selection.
Best wishes, Pete.
Tower Bridge is always worth a look! Pleased you liked my selection
Afine whistle stop European tour!
Don’t think it even goes the length of whistle!!
👍👏👍👏👍👏 Yeah! Tower Bridge, and the Materas, et al. Excellent!
Such lovely photos, Sue, especially the entry trio!
Thanks, Dina! Pleased you liked these!
Many thanks, Anabel!
Excellent selection, some very close to my heart! Matera looks so interesting and I do like your photos of London too.
Which are you favourites,Sofia? Pleased you like this post
The second London one is amazing. Then the Lisbon one, and not just for sentimental reasons, its a very good photo 🙂
Ah, the second London one was taken from a rooftop terrace, quite a sight! And I love that Lisbon one
That’s a fine London trio, Sue, but my favourite is the first of Matera. Love that moody sky.
Thanks, Jo…that image of Matera worked well!
Feel like I traveled with you
Enjoyed this post especially the city Matera!
Glad you travelled with me, Yvette!
Simply wow, Sue. Those views are stunning.
Many thanks, Elke! Memories of some great travels
These are beautiful places and well captured.
