    I want to start a new image thread: suburban images. By suburban I mean self-contained cities, town, and villages that surround a major urban city. I find it easy to do travel pictures, street and city-scape pictures when I am in a major city, nature and wildlife, mountains and other vistas, etc. I find that photography of the familiar, in this case suburban, is harder. The purpose in starting this thread is to see how how other suburban photographers look through their lens.

    I recently got interested in taking pictures as I traveled around my area and see what I could do to find interesting things in the familiar. So here are some.

    Urban Beach Architecture - Australia 2015 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

    A "striking" example of Australian urban architecture cica 2015. You might notice no one enjoying summer evening drinks on their balconies: well that would be because the building faces smack on in to the infamous "Fremantle Doctor", so in the evenings throughout summer you are likely to get sandblasted; hardly a pleasant way to enjoy the great outdoors.

    I just love Australian architects ... no clue about the physical environment :rolleyes-38:

    It seems like everywhere in south Florida you see cranes.

    Of course people still go about their business, even if they don't use crosswalks.

    This lady, dressed as the Statue of Liberty, is encouraging passersby to get their taxes done at the establishment she represents.

    Even the ducks are moving to suburbia.
