My neighborhood....lets see yours

Hello eveybody.....I have been thinking about this thread for awhile...I know that most of us here live in different parts of the world and.....well, I am interested to see what's outside your front door....so, if you have any photos of your neighborhood, please post them up....I for one, am going to spend some more time in my immediate neighborhood shooting the local scene....
Bangkok......my neighborhood....

and yes, I know that not everybody has elephants that walk by their doors every night like I do...but I am interested to see what you've got.....cheers, michael

"Neighborhood" can only be very loosely applied to the island countryside where I live in Washington.

Maddoc, I've always wanted to visit Sapporo - have only ever been to Tokyo and South.

Some shots from Perth. The first two were taken with a Nikon D40 and Nikkor 105mm f/2.5 lens and the third two with a Voigtlander Bessa R3A with a 15mm Super Wide Heliar. All were taken in midwinter (June or July), to give an idea of the climate here.

Sevilla, in the Macarena barrio

I live in La Macarena, an old working class neighbourhood of Sevilla. We ended up here half by accident, but it's the best place (in possibly the best city......) and it'll be a huge wrench if we ever go back to England.

Shot with the Leica M8 and M-Hex 28mm + infrared filter.

Thought I'd keep the red instead of converting to B&W. 'Normal' shots are truly boring, I'd trade for any place for say six months gladly!

Here is another one from my neighborhood....these water taxis go up and down this river (Klong San Saep) all day and they shuttle people in and out of downtown Bangkok.....this canal is about 5 minutes from my place, I usually take these boats into the city...they are fast (no traffic) and pretty exciting.....

cheers, michael
