Weekly Photo Challenge: Urban

Living in the suburbs of Montreal, I can feel the difference in urban and suburban lifestyle.  Not only do I mean the livelihood of the city.  Montreal in itself is a party central with lots of clubs, shopping malls, business buildings and all sorts of transportation.  Its a bustling city with lots to do and plenty to see.  In the summer especially, its filled with festivals for everything like Jazz, Just for Laughs, F1, Nascar, etc.

In urban cities, we are surrounded by what determines the city through the buildings and architecture, the cultural aspects, the arts and so on.  Here are a few things I had the opportunity of taking around where I work in Montreal.

With a few views of Montreal, I started looking back at the urban lives of Macau and Hong Kong.  We can see the difference from each of the cities.

The alleys and little streets of Taipa

Hong Kong Central–>Background of Shanghai Bank, HSBC Tower and lots of taxis
