    Uhm, does that mean you would not even get close to a small hut like the one I have to live in? :p

    OK, I confess, that image posted wasn't my place ... it is not even close to my place ... and I am just waiting that someone might recognise the place as probably many many people walk past it each year.

    Thanks for posting, I never knew you were living that far out from the big city ;) Looks way more quiet than my place actually!

    I love this thread. I'll try to get some of my own Berkeley (or maybe SF) photos up soon, but for now I'll just keep looking at all of these awesome ones. :mrgreen:

    I love this thread.
    Especially like the pics that people think are innocuous, these are the ones that really give strangers to a place a feel for it.

    Well done everyone.

    Now if I could just figure out where home is I might try digging out some shots !

    Ok so I found 5, all pretty similar though.
    Give you a bit of a feel for Leiden, in the Netherlands.

    1- Busy pedestrian bridge over the Oude Rijn canal. The begin point for market traders on market days.(note the bike doing a lemming...)

    [​IMG]


    2- The town gate at the (North)East end of town. Leiden is a fort town famous for being Rembrandt's birthplace and inspiration, and holding the invading spanish at bay during a 16th century siege, which is still celebrated to this day on 3 October.
    [​IMG]


    3 - Waterways are as much part of leiden as any roadways could be. This again is the Oude Rijn, a route for a water taxi.
    [​IMG]


    4- In fact leiden water traffic can be as busy as roadways with many intersections and routes around town. One route should take you by canal all the way to Amsterdam, 40km to the North.

    [​IMG]

    5 - In the often glorious summer sun, the waterways of leiden are also often used for fun and relaxation.

    This is a pretty one sided view of the town, pretty much the tourist view as captured upon my arrival. I havent done much as regards shooting around the town lately. There are different sides to it also. And now, inspired, I just might !

    And what does it look like when your mood takes you to Ireland, NJ?
    For you said you live EITHER in the Netherlands, OR in Ireland, depending on your "mood"... (I have to ALWAYS live in this tiny village halfway between Hamburg and Bremen :( ).

    Well realistically, I live in the Netherlands, 6 years now, but whether it's home or not is another question.

    I have two trips to Ireland on the horizon for this year so hopefully I will get the chance to shoot some there also.

    Cereal Festival Parade (we are called Cereal City after all)
    [​IMG]

    Kellogg House
    [​IMG]

    Federal Center (called Dole, something something after three Senators who stayed there when it was a VA medical hositpal)
    [​IMG]

    Dang, this challenge made me realize I don't have many shots of Battle Creek. At least not defining shots.
