about citywalker


citywalker (Lydia Heard) began as a flickr screen name for my big messy image library, which I keep online for easy access for my work as an urban designer (and for fun). Marcus Werner (SpaceFlaneur) introduced me to the concept of flanerie and excited my imagination, for which this blog will hopefully be an outlet. The city I currently walk the most is Seattle, Washington.
