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:

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:



  1. You had me at Tower Bridge, Sue. My favourite view in London.
    A very nice urban selection.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Afine whistle stop European tour!

  3. 👍👏👍👏👍👏 Yeah! Tower Bridge, and the Materas, et al. Excellent!

  4. Such lovely photos, Sue, especially the entry trio!

  5. Excellent selection, some very close to my heart! Matera looks so interesting and I do like your photos of London too.

  6. That’s a fine London trio, Sue, but my favourite is the first of Matera. Love that moody sky.

    Enjoyed this post especially the city Matera!
