Urban environments

Do you love the Urban environment?


There are plenty and I shall mention a few

  • Cities appear attractive all the time.
  • Different cultures, job opportunities, enjoyable and cheap public transport system, glittering shopping malls, better educational facilities, new opportunities, better healthcare, a great environment for motivation…what not?
  • Everything and anything is available in cities compared to rural areas.


Disadvantages are numerous. Some are…

  • Expensive cost of living, crowd, pollution from various categories and it may be difficult to have pets.
  • You miss Mother nature.
  • People started realizing that they are missing each other.
  • Urban areas have double the mental disorder of rural areas.
  • Many complained that cities have become concrete jungles.

Still, do you love the urban environment?

Desmond Morris has a different thought.

“The city is not a concrete jungle, it is a human zoo”


In the above image, you notice so much activity happening.

You can appreciate things better if you zoom the image.

Push cart vendors are busy selling fruits, flowers, roasted peanuts etc.

Varieties of vehicles, two, three and four wheels.

Not just these, you also notice a pig roaming and cow and calf.

And people in various moods.

So much of the urban environment in this part of this city.

Through urban environment and expansion are we destroying Mother Nature?

  1. Absolutely love that Swearingen quote Philo, never saw it before. Enjoyed your plusses and minuses as well as your images. Cities there are quite different from those here. A pig, cow or calf would last for about 2 seconds in one of our big cities!!!

  2. We should try to find a better balance between urban and rural but it might be too late. I’m a city person for living and all for the joys of the country side but that first photo, although absolutely amazing is also hell to me, there’s too much confusion, too much of everything and not enough peace.

  3. I live in a city too – but we have quite a lot of green spaces in the city. I consider myself fortunate as when I travel/commute to work I get out of the city and travel through the countryside – its definitely good to see the countryside. Although, my ideal would be to be on the coast – to see, hear and smell the sea.
