I don't even live in a town or a village, but when I do need the services that the city has to offer...like U2 concerts... this is where I go

Brisbane, Queensland, Australia



this is the nearest city to me, home of the Big Banana
I go there several times a year and usually end up at the Botanic Garden or the marina. A nice place to visit




You sound a bit homesick Michael. I know several people who have travelled to Vancouver recently and they all loved the place.
Enjoy your travels.

Western Australia



The Central Business District on the Swan River.



Rottnest Island, a ferry ride away from Perth. Lots of beautiful beaches, fresh cream buns and bikes (cars are forbidden). Good place to go at the end of semester (except if you are not a student then its best to NOT go to Rotto then. )




New Norcia - a little monestry outside of Perth that I love visiting. Very peaceful and the bread is glorious.



Bluff Knoll (aka Pualaar Miial ) in The Porongurups ie The Worlds Oldest Hills (near where my Mum lives. )



Kings Park - a mostly native reserve of 400 hectares (1000 acres) right in the middle of the city.



Hillarys Marina - near where I live. Cant find a day time photo. Most famous for half of it burning down recently due to lack of WATER access.

Forgot to mention that about 90% of Western Australia looks like this - ie red dirt and flat.

Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

A view of the city from Citadel Hill, an 18th-century fort in the middle of downtown:


The Old Town Clock (on Citadel Hill) from Brunswick St, at the foot of The Hill:


Cable Wharf (the largest non-commercial wharf in Canada I believe) and the Queen's Wharf Bridge, overlooking Halifax Harbour. The fish shack I worked at last summer is just barely to the right of this photo:


An aerial shot overlooking Citadel Hill and the downtown area:


Halifax's Historic Properties, buildings that have been there since the city's founding in 1749:


Granville St, the street that holds the first building ever built in Halifax - The Split Crow Pub!


Our waterfront:


A webcam animation of the sun going down on the South End of Halifax, including the Harbour. This is from the top of the tallest tower in Halifax, the 33-storey Fenwick Tower (a University Residence):

You can see the webcam for yourself here:

And finally, a shot of the skyline at dusk:


Damn I love this city.

I feel like posting some more.

This is the Angus L MacDonald Bridge, connecting Dartmouth and Halifax:


This is the Bluenose II, replica of the World's Fastest Schooner and the ship that's on every Canadian dime:

The original one sank on a reef off the coast of Haiti in 1929 I believe. She raced dozens of other ships and never lost a race.

Another shot of the Southern end of the waterfront. The glass building on the very left is where the G-7 summit was held in 1994:


This is our public bus system - Metro Transit. The buses are cheap, the schedules suck, and the routes go almost nowhere. But it gets us around I suppose:


A panorama of the Historic Properties and the Sheraton Hotel on the right. That hotel is where I had my prom.


A panoramic skyline of the city:


This city makes my heart bleed. I'm not ever leaving.

Ah the Golden Boy atop the Winnipeg skyline.



I will display mine just for the sake of showing that there is more to Western Canada than Vancouver...

Calgary Downtown Core:

Raffles Hotel

That 'legendary' symbol created by the Tourism Board - the Merlion

A flat in which most Singaporeans would live in (I don't though)

The Esplanade (Arts Centre)....not very pleasant to look at

Borders at Orchard Road (our Oxford Street, if you will)

the Underground Mall at the City Link Eterance (sic)

Another big mall at Orchard Road

Apparently Murrieta, CA is even uglier from the air
Smogtastic!


Old Town Temecula (which is almost exactly the same as Murrieta, but a little larger)


Those are the only pictures i could find.


Some pictures of my university: UC Riverside

I've never seen the leaves nearly this bright before, i think they may have altered the photo to make the school look more attractive than it really is.

Minneapolis, Minnesota

The largest shopping mall in the US, the Mall of America. Camp Snoopy, an amusement park, is in the middle of the mall.


There's lakes everywhere you go. This is one not too far from downtown.


same lake in the winter


Downtown Minneapolis. That creepy white thing in the middle is the Metrodome, home to the Minnesota Twins and Vikings. It's just as creepy on the inside. Maybe one day we'll have a pretty stadium.


Sculpture garden....
