Paris – Eastern Suburbs

4 Nov

Paris’s eastern suburbs

The eastern suburbs of Paris remained a forgotten territory until 1998 and the FIFA World Cup. Since then, new buildings arise every day, from Company Headquarters to Ministerial offices.

But a trace from the past is still remain.

Urban India by Lumenus

15 Dec

Indian cities are compact but rural elements – animals, carts, tractors – often intrude. Conversely
urban elements in the form of small settlements, groups of buildings and ruins scatter much of the
countryside. What’s “urban” becomes blurred.
If the urban/rural/natural categories tend to mix there remains vast variation north to south and east
to west, and even over short distances within one state.
It was hard to pick five images of urban India. These are not representative ( fifty couldn’t be ), I’ve
chosen a set that encompasses variety – no common theme apart from “India”.
