Group Info

Photos taken in one of a number of major cities. This will be a western world centered group (on which English is the only language allowed) because I feel like oppressing you. Or somebody. Whoever needs oppressing.

I'm using this blog as a discussion section for this group. I think a group needs one of those. Just try to keep the discussion on topic: your posts to this journal should have something to do with your efforts as a photographer. If you want to tell us about the experiences you had while taking a series of photos, that might be OK. Telling us about the hard time you had getting carrots in the local Shop and Go is not, unless you took photos. Maybe not even then, because those would probably be incredibly dull photos.

That's the other thing - please have a reason for showing up what we're seeing. "It's a photo group, so let's just post any random garbage we aimed our iPhones at" seems to be the latest thing, but it's also the definition of bad photography, so let's not do that. Yes, I will throw bad photos out of the galleries, and no, I will not bother to justify the removals, or concoct any theories of aesthetics, to be explained through lengthy treatises and manifestos which nobody would read, anyway. I'll just use my own best judgment, and remind those who find it lacking that their only recourse is to find a group run by somebody whose taste is more to their liking.

Such is life.

Information re: This Group





To repeat: English is the only language which may be used on this group. No, this is not cultural imperialism or chauvinism.

This rule is in place because the founder has no ability to learn other languages, as far as he can tell, and he does have to moderate this place. That will be difficult for him to do, if he can't understand the discussions taking place in it. Yes, he has tried, and finds such amusement as he can in the thought that the French language turned out to be an English speaker's Waterloo.




Content posted to this group will be tweeted, and posted to Tumblr, Blogspot and maybe a few other places. No claim is made to the content so shared. This is done so that those who wish to follow this group (and don't have DeviantArt memberships) will be able to do so. The hope is that this will increase the visibility of the work posted here.

The Twitter you see on this page is a shared one, for updates to this group and a few others, as well as for mentions of posts to the admin's blog.




The present avatar is in the public domain, having been found on a page on a US government website. It will be replaced with something more original, later.


Find your city, maybe ... galleries for the following cities are available (more might be added later). The absence of an "other" gallery is deliberate - do not post photos taken in cities which are not on this list. Do not ask for a debate or discussion about the inclusion (or non-inclusion) of cities on the list - it is what it is, so let us move on.
