    Here is a good idea, lets see some of the beautiful streets, and skylines of your city! No stock photos or tourist photos please! :). Doesn't matter if its ground level, across a water way, from a bus, or from a tall building.

    Sorry for the poor quality iPhone pictures. I will try to get better pictures when I find my camera.

    The picture below I just took earlier today, you can see the train station below, and the busy streets of Phoenix :) I will get more ground level pictures soon, if this thread proves itself popular. I stood a little further back, as I do not want to drop my phone from the 25th floor downwards.

    Here is another picture. You can kind of see the Metro Light Rail train, and the cars.

    I tried to get a picture of the airport for you guys, but it didn't work too well. I will get better pictures when I can find my camera.

    Great idea dontwalkhand, was gonna start a thread like this as well. :) Your pics look amazing, looking into the distant skyline. Your streets are so much nice and generally wider than ours in the UK, especially with those palm trees. Everything looks so neat

    Not sure if some of the posters so far have been paying attention to your rule.

    Just to clarify only post pictures taken by yourselves, not ripped off the internet or some brochure, lets keep it original. :p Though some of the pics posted above are very nice.

    That's what I thought. It looks like a toy building with tiny toy cars.

    My thought exactly – I had to do a double take, I thought is was a pic of a model village or something.

    I absolutely love this photo, it's the current skyline shot for Calgary on Wikipedia.
