What to do with the weekly photo challenge theme of urban? I travel aplenty, so I have many images that could fit the bill, but they just don’t have the feel I wanted for this challenge. Hotel window views, skylines by day and night, downtown features of world capitals, even shots taken from the Sears and CN Towers – they all start to look the same after awhile.

On a recent trip to the UK, however, I stumbled across Occupy London. In this shot, the gritty feel of urban London and the tent city really stand out. The photo was made with 35mm black and white film in a Superheadz Slim series Ultra Wide Angle (22mm) camera, with daylight processing at home.
