I was very excited to see this week’s photo challenge theme. I consider myself to be an urbanite. I love the traffic, the tall buildings, the noise and the modernity of the cities I’ve visited and lived in. Here are some photos of some of the cities I have been to and adored.
For this week’s photo challenge I chose a photo from Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. At one time this used to be a high school in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. However, during Pol Pot‘s rule, this school was used as a prison to unjustly house some of the citizens of Cambodia. Many would later be tortured and executed. This photo was taken from behind the wire on the second floor of one of the buildings.
This week’s photo challenge was one of my favorites. The challenge is to post a photo of a fleeting moment on a street. The reason why I like this challenge so much is because I love street photography. I can attribute that to being a city person. The busyness of a city provides countless opportunities to capture many fleeting moments. Here are a couple from my collection.
