A fun idea? 'This is where I'm from'

Post by out of the hollow on Sun Jun 13, 2010 6:14 pm

I like how Kerli has this album on her Myspace with pictures of where she is from. I thught it would be cool, since everyone on this forum is from somewhere different, if we did the same? I think it would be fun to see pictures from all of these places all over the world. Smile

I'll start. I'm from Dallas, Texas, in the United States.
Here's kind of a famous skyline landmark downtown.



There's a fancy restaurant in the top of this tower where the floor moves, so while you're sitting there eating your dinner, you get a 360 view of the city.



Anyone else think this might be fun?

I'm from Lithuania Very Happy

this is "Trakų pilis" (Trakai is the city and "pilis" means castle Very Happy ). It's kinda famous cuz it's on an island in the middle of a lake (this way people wanted to protect themselves from enemies in the middle ages) Very Happy



This is Cathedral (it's in Vilnius - capital city of Lithuania Very Happy )


This is Saint Anne Church. According to legend, this church is "red" because of the blood of the person who built it. After he finished building it his.. well, I don't actually remember who, it's either his friend, father or brother xD pushed him off the roof of the church. Some say it was because he was jealous, others say he was so proud that he wanted to tap his shoulder... anyways, it didn't end well xD

Well last winter was absolutely crazy we had every day more and more snow and it turned annoying really fast but two winters before that we didn't have much because of the global warming thing.
I still hope there's gonna be snow in future but not as much as last winter Razz

That's some crazy snow! Shocked

Here's some less-impressive snow in Dallas just for fun...





It doesn't snow here often. And when it does it usually melts the same day. Sad

I took some pictures today when I was walking to school this morning :] It is winter here and it doesn't snow at all :S
Only up in the Blue Mountains but that is like a long way from where I live D: And I only been to the snow once, wasn't fun at all when you have to sit out and watch people have a jolly good time all because my heart was at a high pressure and I was due to surgery the next week.

Yeah it is a beautiful walk in the morning :]

But I did have two people come and join me and we had a snow ball fight and attempt to make snow balls while nearly everyone is sliding down the slope. So it wasn't much of a disaster.

Here are some pictures of my hometown and landmarks around where I live Smile



This is the Marketplace in the town centre, in Summer I'm guessing because the fair's in town! Smile



This is the Major Oak in Sherwood Forest which is a few miles from my hometown. It's hollowed out inside and you used to be able to go inside it, but you can't now, because it's so old it could fall down without all that support Sad



This is the Gateway to what was Nottingham Castle, it's literally the only part of the castle left!



And finally, this is the school I will be leaving for good tomorrow! Smile
