Downtown San Jose, California

Some shots I've taken around downtown San Jose over the past few months:

I'm surprised that you have this showcase all along! I have a wealth of San Jose images that I want to ask if I can share them here along with your collection because I have a lot of them sitting on my Photobucket so that your album will get a lot of attention. I've been there at least four times that I have a sizable collection available for sharing... That way, I can use my flagship album, Bay Area in Pictures, to focus on areas outside San Jose, and I can exclusively share my images from San Jose here. How's that sound?

And by the way, I can truly see the differences a few years make from the time you've taken those pictures until today: there's so much development around San Jose that I can't imagine how much development has been made over several years, given the amount of high-tech companies and apartment buildings that flocked the city and its neighborhoods. Hopefully, you'll revisit this album, and with my kind permission, I will share my own take of San Jose to lessen my load on my albums.

Superb shots, my friend!

Back from the dead! Didn't see until now...glad everyone liked the pics! I think Downtown San Jose is underrated, so I'm glad to show it off a little. A lot has changed since I took the pics though.

Yeah, there has been plenty of change over the years. I don't have any new shots, but I'd love to see your San Jose pics too.
