Weekly Photo Challenge: Urban

This week we’ve taken a straight-up approach to the challenge. Though one may argue if New York City still epitomises the urban, there is no doubt that in the early 20th century when the skyscraper was new, NYC was unquestionably the queen of all things urban. Some may favour the taller Empire State, but from this view (taken from outside the New York Public Library), we have no doubt at all that the best of all New York buildings is the Chrysler building. Its imperious spire, the Art Deco detailing, it really is a thing of urban beauty; all the more so with the gorgeous tree in front.

    • CIA did well on this one, for sure. A slow burning image, I only just noticed the Dutch touch with the tulips in the flower bed beneath the tree! Serendipity, indeed…
