    I just recently relocated to Korea, and am living just south of Seoul in a satellite city called Anyang. It's a concrete jungle, but there are a ton of hikes and stuff to do around here. My pics will rape the h-scroll, as they are taken in widescreen format on my brand new camera.
    This is what I see when looking directly out my window... not that impressive.
    P1000128.jpg

    This one is looking right towards the market that I live in.
    P1000131.jpg

    There is a mountain literally in my back yard, so I did a late afternoon hike with one of my buddies. I live just down at the base of the mountain, not sure if it is in this shot or not...
    P1000258.jpg

    Thought this was a cool shot...
    P1000255.jpg

    The sun was setting and we had to literally run off the mountain... it was dark when we were trying to find our way out of the base area of the mountain.
    P1000272.jpg

    Here are a couple of shots from Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving), when I went in to Seoul for the day.
    First one, the gate near Dondaemun...
    P1000349.jpg
    Second one, looking towards the north... North Korea is only 50KM away...
    P1000320.jpg
    Last one, me being a spaz after finding some monument with tigers out front.
    P1000335.jpg

    I would post pictures of my apartment, but it is a disaster and I will likely be moving at the end of this month. Should be in a much nicer place then, either in central Anyang, or in Seoul.

    So, I think I might be able to win this thread. This is where I lived when I was growing up, before I went to boarding school in Brisbane. http://www.fergusons.com.au But now I live in a 3 bedroom apartment near the brisbane CBD with my sister, West End for those in the know. However, my home home (with the family, where I still actually have a room) is now a penthouse on the maroochy rivermouth on the sunshine coast.

    By the by, the place im in right now isn't anything special. I may have wealthy parents, but that sure doesn't mean I am.

    I grew up near Charleston, and moved to Denver for a year, and am now back. I actually meant to take pictures yesterday as I went downtown, but unfortunately I forgot my camera. I love living here. It's one of the most historic cities in the United States, and there's a lot of stuff to see and do if you're into that. Downtown Charleston has a very distinct feel compared to other cities. There's a ton of local stuff. I really like some of the local bands, and music stores around here. And we had one of the greatest alternative rock stations in the country until a month ago (it was shut down because of Arbitron's poor rating method, and received so much backlash from the community that it's back as an online only station). People here are generally nicer than anywhere else I've been, and everyone seems to be proud of being from here.


    arthurravenelbridge28frvc9.th.jpg
    The brand new Cooper River bridge. This is probably the most distinctive feature in our skyline. The longest cable stay bridge in the Western Hemisphere.

    charlestonhomerl0.th.jpg


    charlestonkingstreet1te1.th.jpg
    King Street is basically the center of downtown.

    I just love the way the city feels. I'll post more pictures later once I have access to my own, as these are all taken off the wiki article.

    And on to Denver. My house is here, as most of my stuff, which is all packed up in the basement at the moment, so no pictures of a room or anything. I love the Rocky Mountains nearby, and the skyline of Denver is great. I could do without the snow and cold but hey, I haven't actually been up in the mountains to ski or anything during the winter yet, so I guess I haven't experienced them properly yet.

    diaairportroofif8.th.jpg
    Denver International Airport. It's pretty big, and I live about 10 minutes away from it, which is about as close as you can get. My house is basically on the edge of the urban sprawl around Denver, and it's pretty much flat from my house until the airport itself.

    20060714denverskylinemiyh1.th.jpg
    Denver skyline. I have to admit, it is a pretty city to look at.

    2003113016thstreetmalllcw9.th.jpg
    16th street mall, is pretty cool. It's like King street in Charleston.

    Twist and Shout, a local record store, is also worth mentioning. I only lived in Denver for a year though, so I didn't really get to experience it as much as Charleston. If this thread is still alive, I will post more pictures/awesome places when I go back next month.

    And here's Cornmarket, about a 10 minute walk away. Lovely shopping area. Oy, I wish I still lived in Oxford.

    No longer is there a keyboard, but I definitely want one. My roomie's bed is there in that little nook now.n54600169_30919686_9787.jpg
    This is admittedly one of my favorite features of the room.

    Haha I know the feeling man. Lived in London, then Toronto, for over 12 years total. It's nice enough, but not really something you want to run around and share with others.

    I must say, some of you people live in some beautiful spots. Some of these places look like cities that you could wake up in every day, and still enjoy what you see. I imagine like everything else, you probably get used to it after a while, but still.

    I'll post my new surroundings now, more as a contrast to all the really pretty cityscapes and whanot:

    th_toronto1.jpg
    Toronto, where I used to live. Pretty much your average run-of-the-mill North American city, though maybe a bit cleaner than most.



    About 6 months ago, I took a new job and moved up here:
    th_Downtown_Yellowknife_2.jpg
    This is Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. I actually didn't have any good personal shots of the city yet, so this one was just stolen from GIS. Still, it gives you an idea. It's not a very big city - maybe 20k people, but being the largest city for thousands of kilometers, it's got a lot of infrastructure, services and industry for a city it's size.

    th_DSCF0813.jpg
    This is what greeted me the first time I flew into Yellowknife. This disconcerted me greatly, as this was in the middle of June. I frankly expected the 9th largest lake in the WORLD to be slightly less frozen.

    th_DSCF0842.jpg
    My crappy bachelor apartment. I'd like to say that it looks empty and barren because I took this shot about a week after moving in, but sadly it still looks like this. Maybe some day soon I'll buy some furniture...

    After being in Yellowknife for a little over a month, I was sent to work in a remote drilling camp in the Arctic, for what would turn out to be two months. This place turned into my second home, so I'll post a few shots of it as well: (too lazy to resize these, and the thumbnails look like crap, so they're nice and big)
    camp1.jpg
    This was my new living space for the next two months. It's surprisingly cozy, and sadly better-furnished than my actual apartment anyway. The diesel stove in the center was quite necessary after a few weeks, when the temperature hovered around zero every night. And the mosquito netting around the beds was necessary the rest of the time, lest you wake up covered in the bastards.

    camp2.jpg
    My camp. Population was around 20 people or so. Built into a rocky cliffside that made navigating anywhere a chore. But it was quite quaint and I still look at it as a second home.

    Tundra1.jpg
    This is what the tundra around the camp looked like when I arrived. We were a good few hours flight above the treeline, so no trees obviously. Just lots of rock, moss and grass. It had its moments where it looked quite pretty, though far from the "beauty" seen in the other photos in this thread.

    CoastTrip1.jpg
    A shot from our trip up to the Arctic Ocean coast (about a 20 minute flight). Some of the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen.

    tundra2.jpg
    And finally, this is what it looked like for the last month of my tour. Pretty much every day we'd wake up to this, and it would slowly melt throughout the day. Keep in mind this was in late August, early September. Nothing like freezing your ass off, while all your friends down south complain about the hot weather.

    My friend recently bought a house, and I've moved in with her. It's not completely finished (a couple of shelves removed, few boxes and things still lying around, ladder in kitchen etc.) but it's nearly there. I'll use thumbnails rather spoilers as don't the images in spoilers load anyway?

    house.jpg

    The house. As with most of the houses in this area, it's narrow, but unlike many of the other houses, it's brick and not sand-coloured stone.

    janson_print.jpg

    This print is courtesy of mrflippy. It's signed (to me!) by the actor who played Wes Janson in The Empire Strikes Back :mrgreen:

    bedroom_01.jpg bedroom_02.jpg bedroom_03.jpg

    My bedroom. It's small as previous owners split the room into two, creating a very narrow study and this. It was painted dark green, but we've painted over it since. I badly stitched together two photos because there's Tynic's picture up on the wall :P

    study.jpg

    The study. That's really it - just enough room for the desk and my computer/housemate's laptop/sewing machine. This room was a dark blue - again, we painted it.

    The corridor leading to the attic bedroom. I haven't taken a photo of the attic room as it's my housemate's. It's huge - the size of my bedroom, the study, corridor and bathroom combined. Hence the corridor is mainly full of my books and DVDs, as I have little storage room compared to my housemate.

    Some of my books. If you're really, really nosey:

    Kitchen. It's really hard taking photos of narrow rooms. The bathroom's the same size as the kitchen, pretty decent.

    living_room.jpg

    Living room. The whole house has been furnished second-hand with furniture from my housemate's grandparents. That's a gong in front of the fireplace. emot_dance.gif

    My housemate's also done an awesome job of ripping out the garden so far, it was just a mass of weeds. Those outhouses would have held the only toilets once D:

    The city:

    panorama.jpg

    Warning - big panorama, will rape your h-scroll! It's the view from where I used to live, as the view where I live now is boring :P Basically the current house is close to the valley, and that panorama was taken from half a mile up the hill.

    What it looks like when it snows.

    When it's foggy D:

    Some university buildings on the way to work - Firth Court (main administration building) and half of the Student's Union.

    My work.

    Pretty much that's what I imagined everwhere in England other than London looks like.

    That is what everywhere in England looks like apart from London. Just miles and miles of cottages and hamlets and the occasional city. Probably a forest in there somewhere.

    I noticed a disturbing lack of pubs though. I woulda figured it'd be at least half of the pics.
