I don't know for sure, but it seems to me that the term "urban" isn't limited to large -- or even larger -- cities. It certainly seems to apply here in Bethlehem, PA -- at least on this side of the river. It's a lot quieter now since "The Steel" went bust, but you still get that sense of community common in urban neighborhoods.

Nice pic, I have scenes such as this only in movies. Love the birds on the beach and your 'mechanical' photos as well!

The birds do look like they are dancing. The only issue is that because I have a nine year old daughter, Miley Cyrus's Hoedown Throdown is zipping through my head. :P

I thought these houses were only in San Francisco. ;)

It looks like a lovely hilly town! Plenty of green yet houses still stacked on top of each other.
