U is for Urban

Do you think a Cave-man would appreciate such an Urban Skyline?

Or would all the Urban Hubba-Bubba, people - not to mention the police - be too much for him?

Though there are Urban places where he might meet an old friend.

Today's post is an Entry in round SEVEN of ABC Wednesday, the meme initiated by Denise Nesbitt. For more, you can log on via the ABC site.

I feel like a modern version of a cave dweller. I would be impressed by the view of the city from a distance, terrified by the noise and chaos of the streets and gain a little respite by concentrating on looking at something still.

That's a worryingly busy museum though. I might not last there long either!

Hihi... - Hulen, det tok litt tid før jeg skjønte hva du mente her Rune.

Det første bildet er knallbra! Å som jeg skulle ønske jeg hadde vært der altså.

John said...

Whatever the caveman would think, it's a great place for photos, but then, he didn't have a camera. Hope to be there in May.

A building would be a hard mountain to climb,a city would be a stone forest to get lost, every stranger a possible ennemy, "the old friend"(that he could never meet)some bones left by someone who finished eating the beast. He would be probably mad because of the noise and the movement..BUT he would surely adapt very quickly! we did! :)

Urban life is the only life

Great cityscapes.

Cezar and Léia said...

Hmm I think I would not have problem to adapt to this urban life! :)
Amazing idea, your pictures are wonderful!

Grace and Bradley said...

Good thoughts of "U"! Make me think of the picture that I took for the cityscape of shanghai and the dinosaur at Taipei Natural Museum. Not mention the picture Grace took of Paris police in full riot gear. Do all city look alike now?

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

Kontrastene er nok litt store, men for en dag eller to... Og ja, visst hadde det vært gøy med en tur i slike omgivelser, ser veldig spennende og annerledes ut. Fine bilder derfra!

Sylvia K said...

What a different look at our world today! Really interesting perspective and you've done that so very well with your terrific captures! A very talented gentleman you are, Rune! Enjoy!

Shrimp.... mmmmmmmm. Shrimp!

Oh dear. That's probably not the bit that was supposed to stand out. :)

Barbara said...

Nice to visit but I don't think I'd like to live there. Great images, love that top one.

Nanka said...

Good urban life which we have just got so used to now!! Sure to love rural too!!

Great choice for U day!!

photowannabe said...

This is a great slant on the word URBAN. Love the shot of NY and the dinosaurs.

Roger Owen Green said...

I'm an urban creature, but your cave dweller might well be overwhelmed.
Nice sequence of shots.

I like it! Lovely juxtaposition.

EG Wow said...

I think a caveman would feel very confused in an urban setting!

Rinkly Rimes said...

I think that Bubba Gump might win him over!

VALKYRIEN said...

Tror nesten jeg hadde følt meg litt som en caveman i den byen jeg! Men det er jo en flott skyline i det første bildet, men jeg tror ikke han hadde skjønt hva det var!

Og så den måken lenger ned da...der fikk jeg meg en god latter! Kjempefine bilder - og morsom tekst!

Reader Wil said...

Interesting story of the caveman and the urban dweller. I am a village dweller and I feel a bit uneasy in Rotterdam, which is crowded and there is a lot of traffic. Rotterdam is a real metropolis and I don't like it.
Thank you for your visit and comment.

Hans HB said...

Flott bildeserie fra et spennende sted!
Hubba Bubba...?
Big bubbles - no trouble...for the Caveman!!
Ser han går i "Forrest Gump" land...

Great urban shots and perfect for the letter U. Fun post.

Mar said...

Love your urban shots!!
U is for...

Unique idea for this week. I must admit, though, that I prefer the SUB-Urban. :)

imac said...

Very neat post and great pics Rune, my friend.

Yippee I'm back in the land of Blggers, my friend.

Tumblewords: said...

Wonderful. I felt much like a caveman, myself, on my visit to that uber city!

Hildred and Charles said...

Wonderful to look from a-far - once I was a City Girl, bur now I would find the noise and chaos unbearable. I'm with the caveman....

Jedediah said...

All that would make some interesting cave paintings. I love big cities, but given a choice of having only city or only country I would probably go for living in the country. If there are enough books.

becky at abbeystyle said...

Even the urban setting feels like an archaeological dig

Cheryl said...

Love the cityscapes. From afar. Nice choice for U.

Paula Scott said...

Urban! Funny how certain words would never occur to me to use. Urban, I think would be one of them which seems pretty obvious since many of us live in an urban setting! great choice!

Anne said...

Å fytti søren Rune, ditt første her, skal si der var utsikt du. Virkelig fasinerende å se, men allikevel glad en bor i Trøndelag du. Synes å huske jeg leste at det faktisk var hele 3 mill mennesker som pendlet inn til Manhatten hver eneste dag, helt ubegripelig faktisk, og når en da ser ditt siste bilde her... tidene har jammen forandret seg du, siden de der gikk på jorda...

Viola said...

Herlige urbane bilder.. Jo den skyline utsikta tror jeg urbanmannen ville like, kvinnen også-hehe, for de ville ha masse krypinn-huler..!

Utrolig nydelig utsiktsbilde da! Artig fra den travle gaten også! Vil gjerne se flere slike jeg..!

Ha fine dager! :)

ChrisJ said...

That's a great skyline shot. I got a good one too of Panama City. I may just post it since friends are asking for more of our trip. A blessed Christmas to you Rune!

Anna said...

Utsökta urbana bilder, Rune! Sonen Erik (8 snart 9 år) säger alltid att han vill bli 'vildmänniska', som är väl besläktad med grottmänniskor.
Tack för besöket på mitt inlägg 'T is for Temptation'. Jag ska översätta texten och visa det på min styvmoderligt behandlade svenskspråkiga sida 'Tinas Smycken'.
Man får få besök när man är sist på lista, så jag uppskattar verkligen din trevliga uppmuntrande ord!
Varma hälsningar
Anna
