A random shot of classic New England architecture, North Main Street, Providence, RI.

Also, as an aside, here's a old Providence-centric map of the East Coast taken off of a Brown University website. Fun stuff...:

Hum, seems I am not sure yet how to post photos, any help?

You have to put the url for your picture between tabs like this:

[img]  whatever the address is [/img]

We can see it now, but we have to click on the link. Nice pic, BTW :)

Providence's Bank of America building and friends this afternoon:

Wow... that last Providence picture is beautiful... what a great city

Gusterfell didn't tell the full story on that photo. Bank of America (aka The Superman Building) is the tallest in the state, the only reason it's visible from that street now is because of demolition that took place to build the state's new tallest. :)

This one seems to be unusually popular in my Flickr (see my sig for a link to it). It's a picture of the Downtown Connector from the Varsity parking lot (we eat there usually when we are in Atlanta, so that's why a lot of my pics are from the areas around the Varsity).

Nice pics guys. I'm back from my trip and just thought I'd share a couple of pics. Sorry the first pic is a bit far out so you can't see much but anyway it's Albuquerque from the volcanoes west of the city. You can make out some of the city in the distance. In the background on the left is some of the Sandia Mtns and on the right just the edge of the Manzano Mtns. The second pic zooms in a bit on the downtown area. Not a very built up downtown area. I guess Albuquerque seems to follow the pattern a lot of other western cities have of growing out and not up. I'll have a few more to share in the upcoming days.

Great pics. I don't know if I've ever really seen many pics of Albuquerque, so I'll look forward to seeig more in the coming days! :) Were the volcanoes active or dormant?

They're dormant. They're not exactly what you might expect. They aren't really mountains like you see in the background of the pics. They're five hills up on a mesa. They think they were last active around 2,000-3,000 years ago. I don't have many pics in Albuquerque. I spent most of my time more out in the rural areas of New Mexico.
