The World Through My Camera

I'd like to share some pictures that I've taken from trips around the world... Or more correctly, trips around Europe and the US. Currently I have no pictures from other regions of the world. Which is a little sad.

I've been wanting to open a thread like this for a long time so now it's time to actually do it. There will be photos from the usual suspects, but also from cities and towns that rarely feature in this section.

I'll post eight pictures per post and I'll try to keep some sort of theme for every post.

Feedback are welcomed.

1. Tallinn, A walk to/from Kadriorg Palace

One of my favourite cities. The Estonian capital are a very underrated city. These pictures was taken on the walk from the old town towards Kadriorg Palace a bit outside of the center and back. Photos from the actual palace will be another update. Pictures from 2011.

2. New York City, Streetscapes

Some random streetscapes from New York City. This is the type of pictures that I really enjoy taking. Pictures from 2011.

3. Rome, Snow in Rome

I was unlucky enough to visit Rome during one the few occurences of snow in the city. The only positive thing with that was that I guess it gave me some fairly uncommon pictures. Pictures from 2012.

4. Mobile, Downtown streetscapes

Thanks for the likes and comments!

I took a day-trip to Mobile, Alabama. This city felt like a ghost town, at least as soon as you left the freeway. It could have been because I was there around noon a saturday... I liked the architecture in the city though. Pictures from 2013.

6. London, Bus ride

Thanks alexander2000 for the likes and comment and OpenlyJane for the likes!

After a few days where the site was almost impossible to reach it seems like it's possible to post again so here's some more photos.

I've been thinking though, are eight photos per post maybe too much? Should it be reduced a little or is it a good amount of photos per post?

Anyways, I took a bus ride from Hyde Park to Piccadilly Circus. I regret that I didn't took more pictures during the ride. The window was so dirty that I thought that it wouldn't be any good pictures, but it didn't affect the pictures in the end. Pictures from 2011.

I think that you can get away with up to 20 images per post.

7. Santa Cruz, Boardwalk

I think I'll keep it to eight photos per post, but I'll limit it to one post for each time I post.

So here's eight photos taken at the boardwalk in Santa Cruz, California. Pictures from 2010.

Nice pictures of Santa Cruz - a place that I have visited. There's a great little sea-side town a little further south, called Capitola.....lovely...

Thank you!
There's many beautiful things to see alongside coastal California. I never went to Capitola though. Just stopped in Santa Cruz to sleep to avoid getting into San Francisco too late in the evening.

It would probably be possible to spend a two week vacation only traveling on Route 1 and never get bored. It's well worth the extra traveling time to travel along the coast instead of the inland highway.

8. Louisiana, Highways and swamps

When I'm a passenger in a car I like to take photos of the road. These are from southern Louisiana which had a very beautiful scenery. I hope that it's okay to sometimes post pictures that are not urban in this forum section. Pictures from 2013.

Here's the photos of the Kadriorg Palace, which at the time of my visit was undergoing a renovation, and the park in it's vicinity.

11. Rome, Details at St. Peters Square

Yes, it is a fantastic city. I spent 2Ĺ days doing nothing more than just walking around and looking at all the things there were to see in the city and I still feel that I missed so much.

Let's stay in Europe for a while. Seven photos of the statues and architectural details at St. Peters Square in the Vatican in Rome. At the end there's a picture of the Vatican taken from a little distance. Pictures from 2012.
