(International Juried Photography Call for Entry) Urban Landscapes, Suburban Scenes, Riral Impressions

Urban, Suburban, Rural – Choices for life, choices for living.  We have all been to urban, suburban and rural areas for travel and to photograph.  What caught your eye when you visited these places?  Was it the tall buildings of the Urban Landscape or the people rushing around the streets.  Perhaps it was the smoke emerging from a manhole in the middle of the street or the subway zooming along.  Maybe it was suburban home, a relatively new concept in living.  The Suburban Scene at a strip mall, or giant mall, or the barbecue in the backyard.  Finally, the Rural Impressions you found in your country or another country – the grass, the cows, the horses, the flowering fields, or the rusted cars on the front lawn.
