Weekly Photo Challenge: Urban

This week’s photo challenge theme both amused and irritated me – all at the same time!

Chain Link

As someone who used to call a major city home, but now lives in a much smaller town, I just have to ask:

What is “Urban” exactly?

Is it a feeling?  An attitude?  Is it something you have or is it simply a place?

To me, Urban is stiff.  It is confining.  Urban gives you certain conveniences, but just as many boundaries.

Urban is harsh, and cold.  Urban is a sight to behold.

Urban is a heartbeat.

Urban is something I used to take for granted, but at the same time allowed it to get under my skin.

Urban is something I gladly shed from my life.

But I still like to go back to it…every once and a while….
