    Re: Frightening photos from my home town.

    Very good studyr!
    The reason I posted 2 links was to make clear where I was. Harbor Cam is 150 feet to my left, Hy-Line camera is 150 feet to my right. The others are miles away. 2 are near the 2 automotive bridges to Cape Cod over the canal (Sagamore Bridge and Bourne Bridge). Commercial Street is the end of Cape Cod in Provincetown, it the winter 3,500 people, nothing happens on camera, in summer 35,000 people, Provincetown needs a lot of explaining. A LOT! Landfall is near the auto ferry to Martha's Vinyard island. Captain Parker's is on top of a restaurant (GREAT clam chowder and seafood), Beachcomber is on a beach bar, Chatham Inn never seems to work.
    I'm easily amused late at night...

    Because of you three, we now know what horse chestnut tress are AND look like!!!!

    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Re: Frightening photos from my home town.

    The original photos were frightening because of the perspective? Meaning you took them from high above? I know I'd be hesitant to stand up there and take that shot..

    Yes, you get it right.

    I didn't take them. I just posted a link to the blog of the girl who took them. To stand up and take a shot is one thing. And imagine how is to climb up a 250 meters-high rusty deserted mast by a rusty ladder during several hours and then to climb down. I'm too old for such things already.
    Please, correct my mistakes, except for the cases I misspell something on purpose!

    Basil, what happened to the picture of the electrical pylons that you climbed in as a child? I got very curious what they looked like ----- but I could not see the picture?

    I too used to climb in them! (it's VERY unhealthy - they ought to be fenced off actually... people get sick from being close to them for long periods... Children should not be allowed to play on them.. )

    But was it something like this? Or something more scary looking?

    Johanna, I know you asked Basil, yet it has been a couple of days and he has not responded, so maybe he is away and hopefully he will not mind me helping you out? The link to the photos is here.

    Also... as I have begged of others....pleeaaseee, would you post some photos of where you grew up and where you are now????

    But Lampada, your profile says that you are from the United States?
    Do you mean that you grew up in Kiev but now you live in the US?
    Anyway - Kiev looks great! I didn't know it was so elegant!
    I'd love to travel there when I can speak a bit better Russian.

    Rockzmom - I can't see the pics of your city? hese threads are so long!

    Ok here it goes: My home city is Stockholm although I come from an island east of the city. The great thing about Stockholm is that it is built on lots of different islands that are connected by bridges. So you are constantly near the water. Stockholm is the biggest city in Sweden and has about 1 million inhabitants. (Russians and Americans, don't laugh! That's quite big enough!)

    Oh, thank you!! These are great photos!!! I love being near water, so I would feel right at home in Stockholm!

    Lampada, the nighttime photos of Kiev are fantastic as well. Thank you for the link!!! We need one from your window of the lake with all the boats out on the sparkling water right now.

    Oops I'm too lazy!
    I didn't see the first page... Your town seems great. And I had no idea Maryland was a Southern State!
    I thought it was... erm a Northern state (?)

    I have probably never met anybody from Maryland! The only Americans I meet are from California or New York, it seems... And guess what? I have never been to the US! But I'd like to visit...

    LONG Posting... and all in ENGLISH...I know...

    Quote Originally Posted by Johanna

    Maryland is a tricky state! Even during our Civil War, our own state could not decide if it should be Southern or Northern!
    The tobacco counties of southern Maryland and the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay were secessionist. The grain-growing counties of northern and western Maryland, containing few slaves, were safe for the Union.
    And the turning point in that war was in Maryland at Antietam Creek and due to the Union wining the Battle of Antietam, then President Lincoln gave his famous Emancipation Proclamation provided a legal framework for the emancipation slaves.

    Today, there are parts of Maryland like Chevy Chase and Potomac, which are very wealthy and cosmopolitan and have a very much Northern feel to them. You would never catch someone from there saying "ya' all" or "listen up."

    Then you drive for a little ways from there and reach farming towns where they are driving pickup trucks and go hun'in' (notice no "t" or "g"in that word) on the weekends. They don't get invited to any of the parties in Chevy Chase or Potomac, nor do they usually have membership to the country clubs, unless it is the "redneck yatch club!"

    Drive a little farther and you hit the Chesapeake Bay (it is the largest estuary in the U.S.) where we have a big crabbing industry and then drive about two or three more hours and you hit Ocean City Beach on the Atlantic Ocean.

    We also have the U.S. Naval Accademy in Annapolis and the big Port of Baltimore (where they pronounce words little "water" very differently than the rest of the U.S.!). Maryland is also home to the National Institues of Health and right next to that (on the same street) is the National Naval Medical Center.

    And for all you gamers out there, Maryland is home to ZeniMax, parent company of Bethsda Softworks. Maker of Morrowind, Oblivion, Fallout 3, and soon... Knights of Nine!

    So, we have a real mixture of people here. A number of people live here or in Virginia and work in Washington as the public school system in Washington is not very good. Yet, Washington has all the Smithsonian Musuems which are FREE and a number of theaters like the The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the Shakespeare Theatre Company. Yet, Maryland (and not far from where I live) is home to the American Film Institute and the corporate offices for Discovery Channel!

    As you can see from this LONG posting, we have a lot of things to do here or very close to here and from New York we are about a 4 hour drive!
