Thematic Photographic 265 - Streetscapes

One oblique man
London, ON
September 2013
Most of us live in cities, so chances are fairly good that we'll spend at least part of our day on a street.

The numbingly repetitive mixture of asphalt, concrete, signs and painted lines can make it easy to simply overlook. Your mind often goes into numb-mode as you move through the paces of your day, barely paying attention to the details of an environment you've seen so often before.

Or you could try something a little different. Which is what I'm hoping we can do with this week's new Thematic theme, streetscapes.

Simply head out to whatever street tickles your fancy. Take pictures of whatever you find. Share here.

Easy.

I can't wait to see what y'all come back with.

Your turn: Take a pic - or many pics - reflective of this week's theme, then share on your blog or website. Leave a comment here letting everyone know where to find it. Visit other participants to keep the fun going, and repeat through the week if inspiration strikes again. For more background on how Thematic works, click here.

Not quite urban, but I'm still claiming streetscape!

What an interesting view, puzzling and creative in your capture. Like where we're you standing to shoot it? I find myself shooting street scenes often so this theme rocks! Here's mine

Carmi, nice capture. Leaf-peeping upstate and came upon this streetscape.
