Greetings from Sao Paulo, Brazil!
Thanks for sharing, anyone else care to jump in?
Sort of cheating, but this is 5 minutes from me.
This is just at the end of my street though, 200m away from my place.
The first photo is here
And the second is here
I am so Jealous!!!
I don't have my own pictures right now , but i'm going to make some in the future. I live in a village with around 1200/1300 family's.
Our village has a lot history, old buildings, beautiful landscape, cave's and many more. Belgium and Germany isn't far from here, and i live near the Ardennes.
Here are some pictures!

But my family is from Maastricht, 10 minute driving from here. One of the oldest cities

Beautiful, and very interesting! Thanks for posting! It tells me so much about your sense of history and community that you count your population in families, rather than cold census statistics!
I live in The Hague, Netherlands. It's not the capital city, but our King resides here, as well as our parliment.
This the city center
This is the skyline
This is where the parliment "works"
And this is my neighbourhood
wow this is awesome!
thanks for sharing! KEEP IT UP!
I'll just post my Google Maps overheard image: https://firstname.lastname@example.org,-82.0133747,6726m/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en. Click on the "Earth" view to see the natural satellite image of the area. There's not much to see in my semi-small Georgia hick town. Nothing like the beauty of European cities and town.
I could almost drive there !
I had to dig for it, but here's a photo I took a couple years ago of where I live, Calgary, Canada:
I should specify that where I took the photo from is still inside the city limits. Our footprint is the size of New York City, but we've only got about a million people. So, a LOT of sprawl. Out here in the prairies, there's so much space I think it's hard to say "no" to the housing developers who have no natural barriers to expansion.
The park where I took the photo is an entire area of preserved prairie grassland. They basically put a fence around a giant hill, and surrounded it with more city. Here's another shot at this park:
It's huge and in most places you can't even see you're surrounded by city. A nice peaceful oasis away from the traffic.
Do you get much wildlife in grasslands like that?
Some deer call the park area home, and coyotes. Mostly smaller animals though, like mice, hares, gophers and voles, that are sheltered by the long grass. Lots of small birds, and birds of prey. I've read that there are porcupines.
We occasionally have a moose or bear wander downriver from the Rocky Mountains to check out the city life, but deer are all I've personally spotted in the prairie outside the city.
Ok tomorrow I'm going to have to post pics of my hometown in the mountains. ;)
That's really cool, I never knew Calgary had such a big piece of nature inside the city.
Thanks pell_mell, very nice and quite the change from what we have in here!
Honored to see that someone decided to make this a sticky!
Great pics, Richard. I never knew Rotterdam was so nice. I've been there loads of times through the years but only the ferry port.
Looking at the pics of your office on the site you've linked to, that has to be one of the most clean and tidy offices I've ever seen. You must work your cleaners like slaves.
All that's needed now is for you to set up a streaming webcam so we can look over your shoulders as you work ;)
Winter Palace". Nowadays one largest museums of St. Petersburg. The huge number of halls on which it is possible to wander seems eternally.
"Palace Square". It is located at once behind the Winter Palace.
"Cruiser "Aurora"". The ship laid the shot the foundation of storm of "Winter Palace" during revolution.
View from the helicopter on "Peter and Paul Fortress". St. Petersburg "began" with it.
Nice pictures! Cool to see such a recognizable shape of fort. We call those star-forts and we (the dutch) used to build those a lot back when we were still conquering the east =p
A big star fort is actually part of our nations water-defenses, you can read a little about those here
The tsar "Peter I" often happened in Holland and loved it. Fortresses are very similar... not surprisingly: ) In the same place in Holland it was drawn often by various artists. Part of authors of pictures and remained unknown still.
I also live in Holland near a star-fort called Bourtange.
i didnt know how to add photos so i made a video.
Sorry for bad quality i had to record it from windows media player because my video editor was not working :P
Nice video Hajo! You sure take a long time to get to school ;-) I loved the way you waited to get out and away from your own street before opening up the throttle, brings back memories from when I still lived with my parents haha
haha thank you :D
That is awesome Hajo, what a way to show us your home area. What a beautiful place too.
glad you like it thank you :)
the lake you see in the pic is just that it is a lake and not worth going into (i am thinking that is why you do not see people swimming there lol) but i live in madison WI
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
Looks beautiful man!
I wouldn't call where I live a city by no means, but here's the view from my yard :)

Beats my view any day.... Haha
If it was up to me i'd be even further in the sticks, but need to have a happy medium with the wife ;)

Greetings from Neusiedl am See in Austria. As you can see from the picture (google pic of the lighthouse in Podersdorf) I live on a big lake, but no diving here as it is only about 5ft deep!
EDIT: I am apparently too lame to get this to show up as a picture!
I fixed it for you, nice place to live =)
The photo is not mine, but that's the lighthouse that we have in the bay.
