      Here is my "urban" shot for your consideration: Swiss Ice Cream Cart.

      I took it on the main street through one of the small villages on the lake Geneva. It was still early in the morning as we walked out of the coffee shop door seen in the picture.
      I edited it in Lightroom by fading the black a bit, adding a small amount of vignetting, contrast, and color balance.

      Camera: Sony A7s

      Lens: FE 35 f1.4

      Settings: f1.4, 1/320, ISO 100

    • I took this photo just over three years ago when I was visiting Malacca. This is Jonker Street, one of the most famous street markets in Malaysia, and it really comes alive at night. At the time I was using a Nexus 6P, so night time photography wasn't that great yet on smartphones.

    • This florist in Montreal needs a bigger shop.

      This was shot on an overcast day, and those conditions usually make flower colours pop, but in this case I wonder if blue sky reflecting in the windows might have helped, or making a composite and throwing the building into greyscale (since that building colour is ugly). Also, if I shot it again, I'd go to F8 - not sure why this is F4, but I was probably just being lazy.

    • This was taken in Lawrence, MA, a mural on a switch box in front of a still-in-use old mill building.

    • A rainy day in the High Andes of Peru, this little village is called Pallasca, the only way to get here prior to 1974 was by walking or donkey/ horse. A few minutes before I was talking to the man who was responsible for the road to get here

      Focal Length 135.0 mm, f/5.6, 1/200, ISO-1600

    • Texcoco, Mexico.

      Pakistan and Mexico are two opposites on world map. What i saw in streets of Mexico is totally opposite of what we see in Pakistan. At one point i was worried due to all the stories i have read about Mexico, and then i would recall how people feel about Pakistan. Took some precautions that i take generally, and then i was just comfortable moving around streets and enjoyed shooting very bold, energetic and full of love atmosphere.

    • This is one of my favorite urban shots. Four fellas having fun, walking down the streets of Sevilla, Spain, singing a song and having a great time. In one of the most magical places in the world.

      From my Sevilla Photowalk series.
