ENTER! Miscellaneous Avatar Contest: The Big City

Okay! So our last theme was centered on nature. For this one, let's contrast that with a theme of modern cities and urban landscapes. Doesn't matter if it's a city you've lived in, a place you'd like to visit, or just a city you like the look of, as long as it's an image of a real city. Let's see some skylines and city streets and buildings.

The usual avatar contest rules apply.

Entries will be accepted until midnight PDT on the morning of Saturday, May 9th.

To start us off, here is a slice of skyline from Tokyo, Japan:



And away we go! I look forward to seeing other entries!

Re: ENTER! Miscellaneous Avatar Contest: The Big City

Here we go:



I took this probably about fifteen years ago from the pedestrian bridge between the main building and the Dowling building at BMC. In the foreground is the original Boston City Hospital building (now office space), which dates back to around the Civil War, if I remember correctly. In the background, of course, is the Boston skyline, including the John Hancock building and the Prudential Building. The original, uncropped version is here.

If you're interested, I found the same pic and made a gif for you that captures the whole skyline in a scroll.
