    That is a nice one, Jim. But I'm not sure how urban I would call it, though :) At least in my mind I associate urban with cities. That seems more of a rural setting. Like the shot a lot, though!

    Thanks Miranda - although Barrhead is just " a Town with pretensions" (but is technically part of Glasgow) I don't personally only associate Urban with Cities so Towns are fine by me :D

    I have no doubt that my actual entry will probably be in "Glasgow Proper" ;) - or maybe Paisley - but that's just another "Town" :devil:

    Well, I didn't actually make the town versus city association. Towns are cities to me. This looks more like a nature walk in a rural village :p And if I'm not completely mistaken, that's a tractor tyre right there ;)

    Cracking shot but too "artistic" to show "decay" for me :)

    Heaven help us from being artistic! :p I like that. Certainly urban and decay is in evidence. I'd possibly shoot a bit different composition.

    Thanks, feedback always appreciated

    To be honest i prefer the shot really tightly cropped to eliminate the bridge but its a little bit 'lacking' without the colour the bridge adds

    Andy and Terry, both terrific shots! Love the editing in the back of the mill shot. And Andy's picture surely reflects on today.

    not sure the skate park is urban decay for me.
    Some good posts. I think i am going to have to travel to get a decent photo this month. Suburbia isnt quite a decay. im sure i can find something both thought provoking and artist (dreaming)

    Some great pics here, really like tobacco dock II at the docks, reminds me a bit of Sheffield steelworks.

    I don't understand why some of these pics aren't valid though, they look like they fit as urban decay to me?
