This just popped up in my head.. I'm having a photography course, where we take analog b&w photos and do the dark room copying stuff and such.

So I thought that I never see any photos from other countries other than those obvious pictures of some stupid buildings and drunk people having fun.

So, here are two a bit more unusual pictures of my home city, Helsinki (Finland).

very good pics windowlicker. it might be nice if, the next time you printed the second one, you dodged those two light sources at the top of the pic, though. they're awfully bright, and distract me from the nice light patterns from the cars and and the pattern of the clouds. really nice work, though.

I live in Cedar Rapids, IA, here are a couple interesting shots I took with descriptions:

http://gallery.planetcr.com/albums/album18/IMAG0109.sized.jpg
The street I used to live on (center of a bunch of businesses) with 5 second exposure at night.

http://gallery.planetcr.com/albums/album18/IMAG0114.sized.jpg
A nature trail (Sac & Fox named after the Indian trail that proceeded it).

http://gallery.planetcr.com/albums/album18/IMAG0113.sized.jpg
An abandoned barn me and the girlfriend found on the trail (Sac & Fox).

http://gallery.planetcr.com/albums/biketrail/IMAG0041.sized.jpg
Quaker Oats... we 0wn all your Oatmeal =]

http://gallery.planetcr.com/albums/biketrail/IMAG0035.sized.jpg
Our Coal Burning power plant. It burns corn hulls from the neighbor (Quaker Oats) now in a 30% ratio

http://gallery.planetcr.com/albums/biketrail/IMAG0055.sized.jpg
Our "metroplis" Skyline, at just after dusk. Another 5 second exposure shot.

http://gallery.planetcr.com/albums/biketrail/IMAG0146.sized.jpg
Old abandoned Streetcar tracks. Back in the day when a nickel could get you across town.

http://gallery.planetcr.com/albums/fall04/IMAG0048.sized.jpg
Another view of Downtown CR, this ones during the day. Quaker Oats is on the far left.

Hope you guys enjoy these pics, sorry if it uses all your bandwidth.

This one's also nice. The town I grew up in (I actually moved out just a couple of months ago) had this place we used to play at when we were kids. I still don't quite know what the place was, but it had abandon buildings (and we smashed the windows with rocks) and railway tracks.


Nice posts so far :)

Here's a shot from my area I took yesterday. I think it ended up quite nicely, and all I've done in Photoshop is increasing the contrast a little. The light were really orange and bright when it passed through the fog, and I shot it at 480 mm with my dad's 300D.

That is so true.. The buildings look like a big field of flowers (same as those blue ones on the front).

Is that a bigger city on the horizon or just a set of tall trees?

I just had a thought. Do you have a bigger copy of the image? It would make a pretty nice desktop.. I would be glad to receive a 1280+ wide copy of the photo, if you're willing to post it here.-.

I actually made a really nice desktop picture out of it a couple of days ago. I changed the colors to more sepiaish, which works better when using the image as a background pic.

Here's the link to a 1344x1008 version. (http://www.teamg5.com/img/sepia_desktop.jpg) Tell me if you want a specific resolution, and I'll change it.

I can tell you it's not always so nice here either. At the moment the ground is covered with ice and it's damn slippery almost everywhere. But apparently someone's thinking that's not enough so it's raining (water, not snow) too.. Also, the rained water will most likely freeze by night :P

I wish I had a photo of the West Sands looking back into town!

Hard to say.. May might bring anything. Sometimes it's like 25C, and then it might be just raining and 10C :P If you don't mind bad weather it's ok though.

As I said, it might be great, but it might suck too. A safer choise would be going somewhere in Middle-Europe I think.

Nice panorama, Oklandbum. You have a lot of patience to work with that much sky. How many separate exposures did you stitch together, and with what software?

There were 7 shots taken freehand, but it was my friend's Canon camera which can take (I think) 1 pic a second... not certain about that though. And I just used Photoshop 7 to stitch them together. Had to play with the levels and saturation a ton to get them as close as they are, though they're still not perfect. All in all not bad for my first time I'd say.

And of course, have to include a shot of our newest Apple store at the St. Louis Galleria, this was the morning of the grand opening.

Well I hope you all enjoyed those, those were all taken throughout 2004 as I said with my old Powershot...When I get the chance I will roam around the city with my new Digital Rebel and attempt to get some new and better shots!

Thanks for looking!

I havent been in the Galleria store yet, what's it like? Any bigger/better than the West County store?


I dont have any pics of St. Louis, or the little town Rolla where I go to college at. Im not much of a photographer

It is smaller than the West County store...I think the store front looks pretty cool (TWO Apple logos!).

The walls are a nice aluminum finish with little quick checkout lanes on the sides, screen embedded into the wall, when you pay with credit card you have to sign the screen on the wall, that was a little challenging.

And the ceiling glows a warm hue...it is almost theraputic.

I wouldn't say it is a better store, but it is wonderful in it's own right

I took these photos when i was operating camera for the Santa Claus parade. I was working the camera from a cherry picker, so I quickly snaped these shots with my camera.

Here are some pics from the London Eye, taken with a Fuji point 'n shoot on a hazy day, you can see rain on the pod windows.

1. Charing Cross Station: I come through here most days, in the background it the BT tower.

2. The Eye itself in sillhouette.

3. The Houses of Parliament, with Battersea power station (for the Pink Floyd fans) in the background

4. Looking West along the Thames from the top of the Eye.

Shame it was so hazy, but the Eye is an amazing bit of engineering and well worth a visit if you're in town.

Not all of Flint is that bad, to be realistic, but there's really not much here worth taking a picture of.

I wouldn't mind seeing a pic of the VD clinic, actually.

For some reason, I find STI's funny.

Here are some pictures of Reykjavik, Iceland. Most are not that great, though, since it's like too dark here in the wintertime. And I also don't have a tripod :-(


AWWW!!!!! Iceland was the most beautiful place I've ever been too!!! Reykjavik was so nice, great photos! I miss Iceland even though I've only been there for 3 days. I feel in love with that country!

Here is my city for this month, at least. I like to live in the mountains of Co or NM in the summer and the Gulf Coast in the winter. Seldom too cold or too hot that way.

The photo of the city was taken from a bike ride up Smuggler's Trail. Any guesses which city?
