    Pecospetes ‘journey’ thread got me thinking (IMO excellent thread by the way)

    Im sure all of us have pics that reflect the raw beauty and/or personality of our homelands. That use pictures yet in some weird way speak from the heart.Indeed any pics that you have taken on your travels that would qualify as masterpieces of nature or quintessentialy represent a place for you.

    I would be very interested to see others pics in that vein and I suspect im not completely alone on this.

    (Note, if a thread like this does take off I do realise it could become quite data heavy so it is perfectly understandable if the admins decide at some point to truncate or compress pics to clear space and as this is an off topic thread it is reasonable if this is one of the first to be trimmed.)

    Some of my favourite scenes from my home, Australia, follow
    (might take a few secs havent posted pics here b4)

    Please do show us some of what you love about yours

    Your URL isn’t an absolute URL to a picture file – it’s a relative URL (i.e. one that starts in the current folder) to a folder (it just ends in a /, not a file).

    Basically what you have in the IMG SRC tag needs to start with http:// and end with .jpg

    Eclipse over Ularu, my central Australian cousins consider this place sacred
    I’m pretty sure most people can see why

    Er, West London has some nice Art Deco tube stations.

    Last time I checked there was no extraordinary natural beauty, but I’ll keep my eyes open.

    Well, I may have screwed up; I tried to post some photos using my PhotoBucket account, but it’s not showing up and maybe it doesn’t work or maybe it has to be approved first? Haven’t tried to use PB here before. :-)

    Same. Colorado has plenty, but Denver has precisely none. I could post a picture of a naked homeless guy if you want.

    Pecospete:- actually Australian hospitality rules are fairly similar to those of the US south and mid-west, if you turned up at my doorstep I would feel obligated to shout you a drink and show you the local sights, not really a problem though I would be proud to. People from those areas, after a short transition period, do tend to settle in comfortably there are a lot of cultural similarities to many parts of Australia

    Australia is near enough to the same size as the 48 states of the main body of the USA. While i would only be able to give ‘local expertise’ for a few hundred square kilometers I am willing to give broader advice to help peeps avoid the tourist traps and see the real Australia for themselves, that goes for anyone visiting here by the way not just Pecospete, I’d be shocked if other Australians on this site dont share that specific attitude. If males are lucky in their timing I might even be able to swing it so they can get an invite to a corroboree (the real type not the play acting for tourist busses type) I cant extend that to women though because with the real thing you must be invited by a member of your own gender if you are not from that homeland yourself, at least thats how it works for my clan the Pakanji

    Anniescribe, dont be hard on yourself, Johnathon explained in the sort of detail one would use with a school kid still took me twenty minutes and several attempts to get it right so you couldnt do as bad as me, the hoster he got me to use was Imageshack

    Phil i’d rather avoid the peep show lol, but if there is anything about your state or country, broadly, you love and want to show off it still qualifies

    href is an attribute of of the img tag, so:

    <img href=”URL HERE” />

    Which photobucket are you using? I use it for all my photos I post here.
    I have to upload the photo I want to my album there then you have five choices to send I use HTML works evertime I also am using the Ipad version of photobucket. After you upload you need to refresh the album you are storing photos on. I f I can master it anyone can!

    Terribly sorry that it’s taken in Instagram. It was taken when it first came out and everyone thought it was cool.

    But anyway, here’s bonnie Scotland!

    Yeah, needless to say I’m loathe to try posting images again after the malware incident. Maybe Ben P. can post some on behalf of both of us.

    As to my surroundings, the building (Pasadena City Hall) out Leonard and Sheldon’s apartment window in TBBT is a mile away from where I’m sitting. Plenty of natural beauty in the local mountains and beaches, though I don’t think anything quite compares to Fozzi’s Aussie pics. :)

    Mabel, do you know the names of any local contractors/rebuilders (homes, buildings) by the name of Ogle, by chance? Not personally, just the name, I mean.

    Reece, great pic mate, as well as history I also have a passion for science and one of my favourite disciplines is Geology. I somewhat envy the Scotts in that regard, your home contains rocks from every major geological eon. Some areas, i’m given to understand, have stratigraphy with perfect sequence covering hundreds of millions of years. I think the instagram does give a cool effect to this photo, thanks for posting it

    No. Do they do actual work or just stand there looking in the windows? ;)

    They get paid a lot to stand around and look, I gather. ;-)

    gonna call these ‘taunting pecospete’ O:-)

    still lots to see, could post non stop for a year and still not give the idea.

    This is less to do with natural beauty but it is something that feels very beautiful when you experience it.

    Sea World, Ocean World phhht. How about a place where wild dolphins come to visit us.

    Believe it or not these mountains are the fossilised remains of a 250 million year + old coral reef system that is estimated to have been as large and as climactically significant as the modern Great Barrier Reef
