Photo of the Day: Urban Abstract

I really love urban abstract photography, particuarly when it’s monochrome. I thought from the thumbnail of this image on Flickr that this was actually sepia toned, but in the large version I see that it’s just that there’s no color other than the warm browns of the concrete buildings aglow late afternoon sunshine. (I can imagine that this same scene without the sunlight wouldn’t be nearly as interesting.)

Other than this being in Central Philly, I’m not sure where this is. But as an urban abstract, does it really matter?
