IEW Photo Contest - Cityscapes
Australia, Melbourne CBD
I was in a business program this summer in Australia, part of which was visiting various companies. When I went to the CBD I was taken back by the architecture of the buildings. The way the shadows and sunlight hit this building made it look like it was moving.

Mexico City (Zocalo)
The Zócalo is a plaza in central Mexico City where prior to the colonial period, it was the ceremonial center in the Aztec city of Tenochtitlan. The Zócalo is bordered by the Cathedral, the National Plaza, the Federal District buildings and the Old Portal de Mercaderes. The Zócalo is the center of government of both the nation and of the capital. It is a popular space for protests, such as the 2019 Women's March that took place in Mexico City on March 8, 2019.
Mexico, Mexico City - Museo Nacional del Arte
I took the first photo in Mexico City, it is a staircase of Museo Nacional de Arte. It is in the classical style of western art which can bring you back to the old time. The second photo was taken at the Four Embarcadero Center. It is the supporting part of the Tulip sculpture, and there is also a stair around it, but this one is in the modern style. These two photos are kind of reflect each other, they have the same structure --- curved staircase, but at different times--- classical and modern.

USA, SF Four Embarcadero Center
USA, SF Golden Gate Bridge
Like many others, the Golden Gate Bridge is a symbol of the progress of the entire human race. Today, it costs millions of dollars to keep the bridge up and running, which can be if not easily but surely with some efforts replaced by an efficient one. It is to remind us of the great things that we humans can achieve and tackle, which is why we need to maintain such structures.
USA, SF Palace of Fine Arts
The palace of fine arts was constructed to encourage trade, in other words, to bring the world a little closer, to help each other during difficult times. Today San Francisco is truly an International city, bringing diverse talent from across the world, for the advancement of mankind. DIVERSITY is our STRENGTH!!
