Here are a few photos from my city:  Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.  Hamilton is the halfway point between the Toronto and Niagara Falls.  It is one hour east of Buffalo USA.  Hamilton is known as Steel Town and has a terrible industrial area.  There are two parts to Hamilton.  The upper city known as Hamilton Mountain which is quite nice.  Then there is the lower city known as the downtown which contains the industrial waterfront.  Hamilton is also known as the city of 100 Waterfalls.  You will be surprised by the sharp contrast of Hamilton's Beauty and the awfulness of the industrial area.  Hamilton is also famous for Barton Street.  Barton is the poorest end of town and quite possibly the most dangerous place in all of Canada. The Final Picture is of McMaster University which is also home to a large teaching Hospital.

I'm from Canton Township Michigan population near 100,000.  It lies about a 1/2 hour west of Detroit and no we aren't bankrupt and run down.  We have some beautiful homes, nice stores, and parks.

 

Files too large to show here but these imageshack links show some of the sites of Canton

It's a peaceful community, low crime rate, multicultural, and still some areas west in our township we still have farm land!  

I'm from Waterford, Michigan.  I live in a small town in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia now.


Knowing is half the battle.

Hi all,

 

Although I live in London, I am from a small village near Coruña called Lorbé (in Galicia, Spain). Lorbé is a small maritime village where it is possible to try a lot of kinds of fish and seafood, being the most famous product the mussels.

Below are a couple of links where you can see a bit of both Lorbé and A Coruña. I hope you like them :) .

Everybody has so many exotic pictures from their beautiful home cities and towns in Europe.  They make me feel relatively plain and simple in comparison.  Valparaiso (or "Valpo" locally) is an all-American town of 25,000 in the state of Indiana, which lies in the northern middle part of the United States.  Situated about an hour from Chicago, Valparaiso has two favorite sons and one favorite daughter.  Orville Redenbacher is famous for popcorn, and Bryce Drew is the basketball star who helped propel the VU basketball team into the NCAA Sweet Sixteen in 1998.  The favorite daughter is Beulah Bondi, a well-known actress in the 1930's and 40's.  She played with many of the famous in Hollywood at the time, including appearing as Jimmy Stewart's mother in the 1947 classic movie "It's a Wonderful Life".

As a spectator or as a member of the staff? I haven't watched that game cause I was very young back then, and also not a fan of Partizan, but I know about that game. It was very nice gesture from AEK's side! And it meant two important things - message to people here that they weren't left completely alone in those dark times, and two or three hours without bombs over their heads (at least in that area of the city). And who knows what was more important between those two things... Did you notice that AEK's players wore targets on their jerseys?

Players from Japan, Belgium, Germany and .... and ......also are invited to share the beauty of their hometowns or homelands!

Lucky

 

And I said to losermarker to send photos from Australia. wait losermarker.

 

Dekaeneas-Spy

It's been a while in the coming and I don't think D-spy checks in any more, but here are some Australian photo's. We don't have as much history as far as buildings and art goes, but we have wonderful wildlife and scenery that is quite unique.

 

View from my backyard: https://www.dropbox....n01/03.jpg?dl=0

 

Our big Brisbane stadium the "Gabba" where we like to watch mostly Australia beat the English in cricket, but also hosts AFL games.

https://www.dropbox..../Gabba.jpg?dl=0

 

Ayers Rock aka Uluru is at the heart of Australia commonly known as "The Red Centre"

https://www.dropbox....luru01.jpg?dl=0

https://www.dropbox....luru02.jpg?dl=0

It is in vast desert country that stretches for thousands of miles, such as the Tanami desert.

https://www.dropbox....esert2.jpg?dl=0

https://www.dropbox....Desert.jpg?dl=0

The heat is amazing, right now it's even hitting 37C in the winter. The lack of water from lesser rainfall makes it very hard for alot of people to live out there so there are only a few stations.

 

There are hundreds of beaut beaches all the way up the East coast, here's a local one about 45 mins from me:

https://www.dropbox....a5n/01.JPG?dl=0

https://www.dropbox....i4n/02.JPG?dl=0

Beach is also home to the big prawn:

A few common iconic animals:

 

Blue Tongued Lizard:

Koala:

Had a photo I took somewhere but can't find it now, here is one off the internet anyway

Kangaroo:

Wombat:

Dingo:

Snakes

King Brown, one of the worlds deadliest and can grow up to nearly 10 feet. A bite from even a small snake could kill you within 20 minutes.

https://www.dropbox.... brown.jpg?dl=0

Black Snake (In this case red belly, but some are yellow)

https://www.dropbox.... Snake.JPG?dl=0

He was hiding under my gas bottle for a while and was around 4-5 feet long, but he went off after a day or two...phew....

Too many other snakes to mention so I wont list them all here :)

 

Sorry for the wait ;). I'll add some more later with some photo's of the cities.
