The city’s acceptable face

by Antje Bormann

Every Friday, Darren invites someone to become ‘Guest Editor’ for the day to choose and discuss three or four images that have not been previously published on the website.  Today’s Guest Editor is Antje Bormann who describes herself as an enthusiastic photographer with a proper day job. You can see some of Antje’s photography on her blog and Flickr sites.

The image of the pedestrian zone on the other hand shows a more presentable and pleasant side of cities. They are places to slow down a bit, to do some (window) shopping and to meet up with friends in cafés or restaurants. Pedestrian zones are also wonderful locations to observe city life at close quarters. Hence what struck me about this image – apart from the geometry of the converging rectangles of the street surface punctuated by the trees – was the fact that it was removed from the crowd, looking down on them rather than being in the thick of it.
