Arrow [Photos] St. John's in 2013 (Share Yours)

St. John's: 2013 in Photos


In this thread, we can share the photos of St. John's that aren't directly related to our many exciting development rumours, proposals, or ongoing projects.

And there's only one (quite obvious) rule: the photo must be taken in 2013.

I like the Water Street in the rain (or is it snow) at night photos, they look like paintings. Great atmosphere. Also you get some fine vantage points for overlooking Water St.

Great photos - the snow looks very romantic.. Well.. until it's plowed up higher than the stop signs

I saved this one as my screensaver.. My house is one block further south (on the corner of Fitzpatrick) - speaking of which, anyone looking for a rental? Hahaha.. Our tenants are leaving this month

It looks like Pennywell Road, which has some of the nicer rows of houses of the "newer" sort.

That's exactly it, Architype. I live on Prince of Wales Street and that scene is right at the top of mine.

This thread will be amazing in eleven months! I haven't gotten out since I've come back, but I certainly plan on trudging around in the powder in a couple days!

Signal, tomorrow night and Friday morning seems like an amazing time for a photoshoot! (Hint, Hint )Seems like it will be the biggest storm of the past few years for sure!

Maybe the water street snowmobilers will be out in full force again! They only surface in the worst storms xD

I think that's where the "S" is, and the "E" has since disappeared however I'm POSITIVE that that's the "X" and it's still very noticable
