Your City, a Few Photos at a Time

I thought this would be a nice idea for a thread. It eliminates the pretentiousness (of which I've also been guilty) of posting 50-60 photos in one comment and allows everyone to be able to enjoy the pics without having to scroll through hundreds just on one page of a thread.


I'll start it off with three of my most recent captures of Calgary...

I like the idea of this thread, I don't find the other one pretentious - though sometimes it's more like a collection of photo essays - but often the page is unnavigable with a ridiculous amount of high resolution photos.

Thats awesome. Sounder fans do this in Seattle too. So jealous of you MLS cities.

Few phone pics, mine.

Personally, I hate Post a Picture of Your City Thread.

People post 100 pictures in one comment. If you can stick to this limit I will visit here.

Yeah, this is a great idea for a thread. A 3-photo per post limit is just the ticket... as excellent as the photos in that other thread often are, I find that I just start glossing over them when there are several dozen or more photos in a post. The pictures here really capture my attention.

Walked further west to Kensington - not much action
