Looks more vibrant than all but a handful of U.S. cities...

You have a reputation for excellent urban grit photos, flar... but this proves that you are also capable of creating such seriously beautiful compositions.

The last Hamilton skyline shot... the Toronto skyline shots... the dude in the 2nd photo and the first steel mill pics are my faves...

and this is the most badass mural ever:

Bloody excellent. You've done it again

Sometimes I just don't notice all of the beautiful things in the Hammer that you capture. It really is awesome to live here.

Lovely work, Flar! All Hamiltonskeptics need to have a look at this thread -- it'll change their image of the city.

Combination of Toronto having a huge skyline and the scrunched perspective of a telephoto lens

-The 5 storey building is Henderson Hospital being demolished so they can build the new Juravinski Health Centre.

-The pics from Durand are from the rooftop patio of the Conservatory for the Arts. That was at Doors Open Hamilton--Steeltown and Miketoronto were there too.
