Readers' photos on the theme of urban life.
Sandor de Jasay
Each week we publish a gallery of readers' pictures on a set theme. This week it is "urban life" and we begin with this photograph by Sandor de Jasay of rush hour in Tokyo.
Maria Chebysheva: "This is the photo of the house on the opposite side of the canal in Venice, Italy. These two cats stared at us suspiciously every time we had a breakfast, I guess they considered us some sausage market competitors. In any case, we were lucky to have water between our houses."
Miles Storey: "Walking around downtown Toronto at night, there are many boxes of light where people gather behind glass walls. This is the lobby of one of the Toronto-Dominion Centre towers."
Doris Enders: "To me urban life is pretty close together."
Andy Friend-Smith: "I took this shot from the London Eye then applied a 'tilt shift' effect to make it look like a toy-town."
Devlin Stalion: "During the Christmas Market in Birmingham I came across this really fun swing band. They were a really animated, lively bunch who clearly love to play music. I can still feel the atmosphere they created on the street."
Pete Edmunds: "An old man dressed in white seems to echo the white 'walk' sign with his body shape as he steps out into the street in Chinatown, Los Angeles."
Edin Tuzlak: "Breakdancers are seen in centre of Sarajevo."
Judith Ewing: "This photo was taken on the Millennium Bridge in London in June 2013. I was trying to take a photo of the pigeon standing on the bridge when my boyfriend tried to shoo it away. Luckily this resulted in an arguably more interesting shot."
Christine Hall: "One of the street's resident foxes in Bristol."
Hiral Patel: "Urban life in most developed economies now constitutes public transport in the form of underground trains. They are remarkably similar everywhere."
And finally... a photograph of people on the banks of the River Seine in Paris by Kevin Horsewood. The next theme is "rural life" and the deadline for your entries is 30 July.
