An image representing your locale

  1. Gregory had a great idea in the "Roll Call" thread:
    I think we can all have some fun with this.
    If you don't mind Gregory, as not to get lost there, I'll start a new thread for it (be sure to repeat your great pic here, Greg).

    OK, here is what my locale looks / feels like most of the year :) :) :

    Warning sign outside the start of a major minefield within the South Korean DeMilitarised Zone (DMZ)....Ummm watch yer feet laddie!!

    Good shot. All that white, well done. Have to say the golf clubs are a riot. Practicing on snowballs ???

    Thanks, good thread.

    Guess I will have to go out shooting tomorrow. Sailboat race at the river tomorrow, some friends racing.

    Beautiful colors and structures.

    Thank you for sharing.
  5. This is definitely my world. Nothing better than being in my kayak, paddling around, taking pics. This is from one of the lagoons in the Toronto Islands, just south of the city.
    Beautiful spring day, S3Pro, 17-55/2.8.

    It's the desert, and it's the city. Mostly flat, but some mountains stick up. It's Phoenix, AZ:
    (Next month I hope to change this to somewhere wetter!)

    Ohhh thats a gorgeous shot of lovely T.O Sandi. That's my next home come August so please continue to tempt me with these images.

    Thanks also Gale for the kind words! Now lets see some of hot Florida!

  8. Joel, keep your eye on my pbase site, the first folders as they will contain all my new stuff. I want to do a walking tour of the city, shooting all the gargoyles on the old stone buildings. There are lots of them and are never noticed. I really love those colourful pictures, saw the earlier series. Those lanterns look magnificent!
    Once you land here, if you're up for it, I've got a second kayak if you want to tour around the harbour. Very stable and affords a totally different perspective of the city. If not, shoot from land over on the Islands.
    Chris, that landscape looks very unforgiving if one is lost! The B&W treatment accents this!

    I moved to sunny California (where it never rains) six month ago and this is what my locale looked like:


    But to be fair most of the time you get this:

    Here's a couple from the North of England

    These are both from the historical City of York.

    First, a standard "tourist" shot of York Minster:


    Second, a shot of the Treasurer's House, just behind the Minster:


    I hope you like them :)

  11. This is a repeat, but it's classic Washington D.C.


  12. interesting stuff,
    This is where I live in sunny Santa Clarita California. It's a great place, but I am getting ready to retire soon and will be looking for a place in the Northwest, possibly Pugent Sound area. It just costs way too much for a house here.

  13. I live somewhere close to the top of the photo...

    Just prepped a pic taken on a research cruise in the Sound a couple days ago but there does not seem to be a way to get it off my desktop (a MAC) onto the site.
    Tom :cry:

  18. Hi Paul,
    I never heard that word or expression before, just wondered what it meant.
    It's good to be exposed to new things.

    Wow, thanks Frits! I'm honored!

    There are so many awsome photos in this thread already. I'm jealous that so many people live in such beautiful areas. Chris even makes the Desert look awsome!

    Well here's the one I posted in that thread - one of my favorite images:

    Well, other than for Disneyland, Sunny Southern California is known for, well, it's sun... So I'll post a pic of some palm trees silhouetted among rolling mountains in our desert oasis:
