PICTURE YOURSELF...?! (No, not OF you..!)

Post by gwidhw on Fri May 08, 2015 4:41 am

I was thinking it would be cool to have a thread where people post their best (on a subjective level, I suppose), photograph that they can take of their homeland Smile

(NOT your house -.-)

If you live in Canada, why not share a photo you take from the top of a mountain?
If you're from Louisiana, why not... the swamp..? I don't know, I've only seen it in movies! Very Happy

Let's share a piece of our RL "world" with those who don't get to bask in the glory of our personal surroundings! Very Happy

...any takers?
If so, I'll post Smile

This sign is literally right outside of the town I live in. You get off onto the interstate and drive about a mile or two.

As much as I complain about the weather here in MA I gotta say though; I still love this state (well I kinda like NH a bit more since there is more nature) because when I thought about it: MA despite all its flaws has a more balanced weather than the rest of the country.
Cali has earthquakes which can happen without warning.
Florida has hurricanes. Central US is basically desert with tornadoes. Michagan, New York and Alaska has insane winter storms. hawaii has an active volcano. I dunno about the carolinas and georga and such but MA just has cold winters and hot summers. But no where as insane as Florida's summers and Michigan's winters. We don't have earthquakes or tornadoes. We have had hurricans but no where near the force of Florida's.

We New Englander's complain a lot but then again; it runs in our blood. We were the area that started the USA. We complain about a lot of things and there is indeed good reasons. (seriously; have you been through Boston?!)

Hey, we don't have hurricanes. Well a hurricane to you is just a rain day for us and are summers are just nice weather for going swimming in the water.

I was making an example. Texas also has very hot summers in comparison to us. I've heard from my cousin whom has lived in Florida his entire life (he's a little older than you) of some horror stories of hurricanes down there. I was there when I was a child for a few weeks and the rain storms there are worse than here. We rarely get a heavy shower.
And here's a list of destructive hurricanes from Florida: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Florida_hurricanes

Also what can be considered "cold" for you (40 degrees) is T-shirt weather for me.

I am not attacking Florida. It was just my main example since I know of Florida better than other states outside the New England area. I am also not saying MA is better either. The old saying around here "the weather changes every 5 minutes" is (if not however too exaggerated) has some truth to it. We've had spring like days where its in the 60's or 70's then drop down to the 20-30's in the same week. We've had snow storms that freak other states out. Where Texas was crying to 3 inches of snow we were handling the all-time record breaking winter here. (about 6 FEET of snow)

Both MA and Florida are VERY different places. You're a lot closer to the equator than I am. I'm closer to the friggin North pole. Our terrain is different too. We have LOTS of hills where Florida is mostly flat in comparison to us.

If you desire to make this the very first official argument of Blargaria; so be it. (just when we were so close to being one month old) But note; it will be mostly hear-say on both our parts. I've lived in Massachusetts my entire life (minus about 4 weeks being outside New England) where I assume you've lived mostly in Florida for your life. (I could be wrong in that assumption since I don't know you at all)

Umm Hyera that's kinda off topic. Its supposed to be an idea of where you live not where you visited. That is an open idea for a thread though Very Happy

^yeah, I'd say countries count, even if you've only just visited. There are so many interesting places that people might know of, or have been to, that other people on here will either never get to see, or never even know of their existence~

The idea is to share our homelands with everyone else, and showcase what might go left unseen, as well~ Smile

This kind of structure is called 'Vaav' ('stepwell'). Read in detail here.

This one is stepwell + temple. There are six floors. Its construction stopped at 6th floor. Queen who ordered to buid this commited suicide as King was murdered. New king killed workers.

Here you can see water on 1st (or maybe it's called 6th. Dunno) floor.
