    Har-har-har-har, Alex :greenpbl:

    By the way, if I were to get myself the lens you are suggesting I buy in my Industrial-Berlin-thread, I would need to MOVE IN THERE WITH YOU! :shock:

    Well, if you then bring that lens along and we will also share it, then I'm fine with your suggestion :p

    I love this thread. In fact, this is the thing about the forum that still amazes me everyday. We can, from the comfort of our homes, see images from all over the world. We take this for granted, I think. Two hundred years ago, a very short time in the grand scheme, we couldn’t capture images. Twenty years ago, we couldn’t share them in forums. It blows me away.

    jereoen, I love those photos of yours. Some of my all time favorite books are the detective series from van de Wetering, which took place in Amsterdam. Your images got me daydreaming about Grijpstra and de Gier. Chicago – Seattle – D.C. – Sea Cliff, all wonderful photos that show us a sense of place, which is very powerful. I wish I were a better writer. We need someone eloquent to do this thread justice.

    (Alex B – I just saw your photo of your tent out there in the mountains north of the arctic circle, with those reindeer. Excellent and so ... unbelievable to me. It’s so different from what I normally see.)

    Anyway, here’s my contribution from NYC. Thanks for sharing, everyone.

    This is a great thread. I love the variety that comes out from people who live in the same city. Here are a few from Toronto.

    Yeah he is. I also noticed that he looks an awful lot like your friend who is looking for a beer.

    OK, you say you also want to see small and boring places? For I can neither offer you an abode of the size and quality of the one Alex lives in :)greenpbl: ), nor can I offer you citiscapes of famous places such as Chicago, New York, Seattle, Toronto or Washington DC... so sorry.

    But here is one of the highest buildings in my place: the church.

    [​IMG]

    And the house where my friend lives in - it was built by her great-grandfather or so:

    [​IMG]

    The Old Peoples' Home on the Main Road shortly before you have to turn right to get to my village (with the speed control camera box which I photographed this time :greenpbl: --- not it me!):

    [​IMG]

    The Community Hall (we cannot speak of a Town Hall, my place it too small to be called a "town") ... i.e. this is where the authorities are such as registration office and whatnot:

    [​IMG]

    My street.
    Our house is somewhere towards the end of this street and not to be seen in the photo, what you see, however, is the area in front of the Fire Brigade Garage, behind that meadow:

    I hope these five photos sort of sum up all there is about my place, though we do have more sights, such as the Primary School, the Secondary School, the Green Grocer's, the railway station and and and. ;)

    Wow, you live in a street with real trees in it! That must be nice :)
    That house in your second photo is my new dream house. Looks cozy, like it's from a Harry Potter book or something.

    It looks like a lovely spot, Corinna! The church is very pretty - do the bells still ring on Sundays? And your friend's house looks so charming in that picture...like a postcard. Such nice big old trees on your street...it must look beautiful when they are blooming. I hope to see this place in, oh, say, late May next year? :wink:

    thank you for posting. these are actually the exact type of pictures I enjoy seeing. its a good chance in my lifetime, I will never go to a small town in germany. the only way I find out what it looks like is from you (or our friend google, if i'm lucky).

    great shots. :thumbup:
