Default Pictures of your home town *picture heavy*

Everyone should post a few photographs of their home town!

Go! I'll start

To me the first picture is how I veiw my home town. Grey, rough, bleak, depressing.



The rest is what the tourists see, or what they want you to see.

These are such awesome pictures I dont have any pics of my small town at the moment but i'll work on it.. i have non-digital pics (taken during my art photography class). Not a real exciting town. There is some interesting turn of the 20th century architecture though.

Grins - well while she is a healthy girl.. I think it was more the layering and the big coat more than anything. I sent ya a pm with a link.

I am a big fan of hers politically, but on a personal level as well. She is dedicated to civil rights and civil responsibility. I was downtown taking pictures of the Mardi Gras parade and saw her leaving work, she is just so unpretentious which is saying a lot for a southern politician.

Thanks!

This is what I see every morning (minus of course the two biggest towers on the left), though it's generally a bit sunnier. Nice to have all that mess, but at a comfortable distance.

As for Blackpool, it's a strange place. I had fun visiting, but I see how you could lose your mind growing up there. I guess it was no accident that Mike Leigh made it the hometown of the most dire character in Working Girls.

Not much to say about the town I live in -- Santa Maria. Its big (unfortunate) claim to fame is that it's where the Michael Jackson trial was held. You can see a bit of it, below:
Here and Here.

Many of the buildings have the terra cotta roofs, and there is a pretty good diversity of trees and plants here, but the town itself is boring. What I like is what is *near* my town.

Oceano Beach on an overcast day. What's cool about it is that you can drive on a large stretch of it, so it makes it nice for those who have trouble walking on the soft sand. You can park near the water and walk a bit and find shells and such -- get your feet in the water. It's also a great place to park at night and neck to the sound of the surf and the glow of the moon.
Here.

On a sunny day:
Here.

Shell Beach right after xmas last year, just after the tsunami (which is why the seas are a bit tempestuous). There are cliffs with homes overlooking it -- they call the area Dinosaur Caves, because of all of the caves that one can explore below -- during low tide, of course. Biggie took this one.
Here.

The same general area, on a nicer day
Here.

My car right across the street from that cliff, to give an idea of the area.
Here.

Further down the coast, on a bay,
Here.

Anyway, you get the idea. There is gorgeous coast, with each beach having a different feel -- from wild and untamed to more touristy. I love this area and never tire of the ocean.

Hey Jamie,

I thought I'd add to your pictures, since we live in the same city, and add the downtown water fountains!! This is the night of the Styx/REO Speedwagon concert!! I just love the fountains...they really give Lexington charm.





I just love this picture of Mike (my hubby, to the curious), it show's the fountains beautifully!!

I only wish that these pictures could have been taken with my new digi-cam. I was using one of those disposable camaras and it doesn't have as good as clarity as I would have liked.

It was the first (and last) time I tried cockles and I was shocked at how the beach is actually rockier and more uninviting than Long Island's north shore, where I spent a bit of my youth in my own (much smaller) tourist helltown. In New York we have our Blackpool equivalents, like the infamous nearby Jersey Shore and Coney Island before I was born (now it looks like Blackpool after a nuclear holocaust).

Blackpool doesn't feature prominently in CAREER Girls (not Working Girls - that movie features my current home of Staten Island, oddly enough), but Blackpool makes a cameo at the end. It's not Mike Leigh's best (that would be Naked or Life is Sweet) but as Woody Allen said, even a bad Leigh is pretty good. (ouch - sorry)
