  • Cincinnati!





    Turn the camera 90 degrees and you'll probably see several shootings taking place. I do love Findlay Market though.

    My God, Norway is the most beautiful country in the world. My grandma, who was from Sweden, went to her grave bragging about how great the Scandinavian countries are, and I believe her. I need a place with fjords!

    I've always wanted to visit the Scandinavian countries, always heard they are some of the best places on Earth to live.

    I live in good old H-town

    (Beyond the cooling towers is Meadowhall Shopping Centre. 'Meadow-hell' as many call it, rakes it a hell of a lot of money though)

    I think people are very unfair about cooling towers, and brutalist/functional architecture in general. Having grown up in the Midlands I can't help loving the industrial and very 'unnatural' environment I live in. It might be a stark and damaged beauty, but I find it beautiful nethertheless. Whilst I can't offer any informed opinions about cooling towers regarding their environmental impact or the effects of living close to such dramatic structures, I actually sort of like them. To me they look like an enormous Katja Strunz sculpture, or a site of alien pre-human worship.

    Maybe i'm just a bit weird... ;p


    I used to love those cooling towers so I'm not gunna call you weird at all :P

    Around 10,000 people saw their destruction. It kinda put some perspective on how much of a loved landmark they were.


    THAT IS ONE BIG ASS SHOPPING CENTRE. O_O

    Btw, been to Sheffield a good few times in my youth. Really cool city!

  • Seattle! Oh baby babe. I love it here.
    I think it gets a bad rep. A lot of people feel really out of their element here, but it suits me, you know?

    Btw, the skyline is beautiful - but it's no match for what's inside the city.





    Looking toward Mt. Ranier...



    This is our public library. ;D

    I've always wanted to move to seattle. It seems amazing all year round!

    Anywho,

    San Jose is whatevers. I never have anything to do. I don't like hockey so I don't go to the Sharks' games. On the brighter side, my local area has a ton of comic shops.

  • Joensuu, Finland.
    Actually I'm not living there, that's just the nearest town.

  • Come visit us in Seattle! We're welcoming people, if a little snotty about our music scene. :P And yeah, there's always something going on, no matter what the season - we're used to shit weather so we don't let that stop us.

    Wow, that bit of Finland looks wonderful. I've been to Denmark and Sweden but never Norway or Finland. Both are still on my list of goals.

    There's such a thing as "too sunny"!? O_O

  • I used to think so. I hated the heat and sun until about 3 years ago when I realised it's a precious commodity. But I can totally get people who aren't into hotter climates.

    Hotter climates I can understand, but sunshine? I guess these people must have the reverse of seasonal affective disorder or something....

  • BUMP!

    Let's see some more pics ;)


  • Downtown Louisville, Kentucky in all it's glory.


    Home of the Kentucky Derby and the only reason people care about our fair city f**k you and your horse racing I happen to live a few streets over from this place, it gets super crowded around the neighborhood during April.
    I really wish I lived somewhere else.

    It's early and bright out, the sun swallowed me.

  • Here are some pictures of Antwerp, Belgium:



    The cathedral:



    The famous railway Station: Antwerp Central Station. It has been choosen as 3rd most beautiful station in the world! It has a giant iron construction mady by Gustaf Eiffel, yes the builder of the Eiffel tower in Paris :)



    Inside the station:


    Don't think there are just 6 tracks, this station has 3 floors where trains stop.

    There's also a medieval castle: Het Steen (The Stone)



    Last but not least, the port of Antwerp: the second largest of Europe:


    It's just my style!
