Another fantastic thread Smylee.

Perth, Western Australia. Fremantle in particular, with a few shots of Rottnest Island (12Km's off Fremantle) for good measure where myself and the family have just spent the last week on a little holiday.

Fremantle has great food and a fantastic & historic maritime heritage. Awesome marketplace and atmosphere as well. And, the US Navy voted it the best port to visit!

Perth..........

Originally from here;

OK, a little (or a lot
) boring depending on the point of view.

Live close to here now.


Glass House Mountains Queensland Australia

Think "famous Australian Zoo" and "crikey" and you'd be almost spot on.


This is the view from my front yard at dawn. I've still yet to tire of it

All these pictures are making me realize how crappy the place that I live is, not that I didn't know already. I live in a fairly small town in Illinois just across the river from St. Louis, Missouri. I'm not even gonna bother posting pictures of this dump. I could post pics of St. Louis but that would be a lie since that's not where I live. Looks like everyone who's posted here has it pretty good. I don't mean to sound bitter, I'm just admiring the beauty and reflecting.

Someone has to post some pictures of somewhere that's not so beautiful eventually, you're making us normal people look like slobs.

Peace.


Oh man, is that the Masonic? It looks so dead. I had hopes that someone could save that amazing structure.

How is the city holding up? Is there still hope?

Nice thread idea...makes you all the more aware of what a beautiful and diverse world we are blessed to live in...and as someone who is not a huge fan of travelling, other than on foot and bicycle, I do enjoy being offered a window into the less talked about places...

My city, York...

Lets take off those rose tinted glasses for a while, shall we?

Years and years of successive socialist governing has turned this town into the slum of the country.

Meet Burnley, UK, where you can buy a house for ten grand.



As you gaze from Turf Moor football stadium, just making out the asbestos roofing on the stand, you first see Burnleys most famous landmark, the 2 up, 2 down terraced house.

Drift your gaze up to the beautiful blue rooftops, part of a social housing experiment from many years ago, long since abandoned.



Above, you see a typical example of the cotton mill, Burnley was a very big player in the cotton industries a century ago, mainly due to the fact that it is one of the dampest places in the country, in fact, this rain belt makes Manchester seem like San Francisco.

There are a few examples of mills left around, and most are in a run down, and dilapidated state of repair.



Finally, allow this picture to give you some appreciation of how the town planners managed to get so many people crammed into such a small area of land, whilst relaying an open plan aspect, with a great use of open space, NOT!

Ahhh...those 'dark satanic mills'...

...up north, some places are definately grimmer than others...but still, Burnley has some beautiful industrial revolution era buildings...it's just a shame, like much of the North, that it, and it's people, have served their purpose and been left to rot ever since the textile industry got out sourced overseas

Lowell, Michigan the soft center of everything mid-west.





This is the nearest big city in Western Michigan Grand Rapids, owned and operated by the Amway Corp..ie. the Devos and Van Andel Family. Extremely republican, Dutch and often drunk city. We top the list every year for drunkest city in the U.S. Which is why next to every bar is a church..
