No one's all that interested in a relatively unknown city like Hamilton I guess.

A little commentary would be nice. I wouldn't say that Canada is unfamiliar to me by any means but I have never been to Hamilton and, though I quickly identified it as a mid-sized Canadian city, I had to do a little detective work to figure out which city it was. I know I could easily look up the information on my own but it is always nice to hear opinions and comments from the photographer as it is often more insightful (and personal) than any other online source. I'm not complaining, I'm grateful to anyone that even bothers to post great pictures like these, but you might generate a few more responses if you included some additional information. That said; I really like the look of Hamilton, much more than I had ever expected (or thought to look for!).

I can't believe it took me this long to find these excellent pictures you took of Hamilton, Flar! Thanks so much for sharing! If people could just take more pride and forget about the Steel Mills, Hamilton could become an ever nicer city!

BTW, took in my very first Hamilton Bulldogs game last night @ Copps Coliseum, great arena and it was a great time! Downtown Hamilton is looking sharp as usual!

You capture Hamilton like no one else manages to! Love your photographs and hope there are more in the vaults for us to see.

Hamilton isn't really all that small, the population of the city-proper is well over 500,000. And it is cold.....in the winter.

Wow, this is a very old thread.

I do have a lot of Hamilton photos that I haven't posted here, I'll keep posting new ones from time to time.
