30 Beautiful Photographs of Cities from Around the World



Cities are incredible. If you take a moment and think about how fast our technology evolved in the last 200 years, you’ll be amazed. The evolution of mankind has skyrocketed as well as the need for Earth’s resources. Essentially we’re a bunch of ants on a rock that’s floating in space, which is inside a galaxy that is inside a thing called the Universe… I mean, it’s pretty wild if you stop to think about it.

What’s even crazier is that we’re constantly breaking technological boundaries. One of those boundaries are cities. As of January, 2014, it’s estimated that there are more than 7.2 billion humans living on Earth. More people equals more cities, and more cities means that more resources must be utilized to sustain those cities.

City growth creates all sorts of extra problems:

  1. How will everybody fit in this confined area?
  2. Will we need to expand?
  3. How much more food will we need to import for these people?
  4. How much electricity will the entire city use?
  5. What about public transportation?
  6. The list goes on and on.

Cities aren’t perfect, they will always have their own problems. Just like humans.

Humans used to be nomads. Technically without farming, cities would never be possible. So from time to time, try to be thankful that you live in a world where somebody out there is growing the food you’re supposed to be growing yourself. Essentially they’re keeping you alive, so you can be and do whatever you want.

The bottom line is that human progress and technology are developing at exponential rates. Maybe in the future we can have robots growing our food while we party like it’s 1999… Fingers crossed.

Sometimes I feel like I want to go back to the nomadic lifestyle and visit some of these great cities before I die. They’re all beautifully complex and fascinate me to great degrees. Just like our finger prints, each city is unique in it’s own way. It has various buildings, sidewalks, different people, different stores, street widths, surrounding areas, views, altitude, weather, etc.

Today I collected some of my favorite cities from around the world. I hope you’ll find them inspirational. Enjoy!
