Great thread, never seen Hamilton before, so this really was interesting.

I loved this shot: "Going your way." I think the other guy wished he went somewhere else!

friggin great job Flar. I think that's your best tour yet.
I love the above comment about Montreal. I've long said that Hamilton has the ability to become Ontario's Montreal.
You really need to consider a book or something. The mix of scenery, architecture, people, candid shots and local scenes in this tour is fabulous.
I'd frame almost all of 'em if I could!

'warmer winters than Ottawa'
believe me, I started to wonder if I was really a Canadian the first time I visited Ottawa and Montreal a few years ago. It felt like the north pole. All my life in the Hammer I've never experienced such cold....
especially the past couple years. winter just started here a few weeks ago.

^^Decent big city vibe. Hamilton has lots of people walking about most of the time, the lower city is dense, and there are many distinct districts throughout (Hess Village, International Village, Lock St, Textile, Jamesville, etc.). Plenty of arts and culture (recently lots of Toronto artists have been moving in). It's not the miles of skyscrapers like Toronto, but it's far more urban than most people know, and probably even moreso than its population suggests since pre WW2 it was one of Canada's larger cities.

Hamilton presents both a 'big city' feel and a 'depressed city' feel sometimes mere minutes away from each other.
Both are urban, but it's quite plain to see when a street goes from full storefronts, nifty cafes and shops (such as James North) to half empty storefronts, buildings in bad shape and lots of poor folks walking around (such as Barton East a few minutes away).
Downtown along King and James you certainly get a big city vibe. And great architecture. Streets like Locke and Ottawa give you more of a neighbourhood vibe...not so much 'big city'.

You did an amazing job flar! It's rare to have night shots of Hamilton and you provided a glimpse of it here. Nice
