Yes, I admit to liking urban porn. My dirty little secret. If you show me yours, I will show you mine.

Yup, another addict right here, I just can't help myself, especially with stuff like this.
I love all the brick in those photos, it looks like another world compared to Vancouver, where row housing like that is practically non-existent.
And I think I saw the same stove that is sitting in my apartment right now in your set...probably not a good thing.

I'm into this. There's some excellent stuff here, some of it reminds me of perhaps something from my collection of 80s and early 90s Nat Geos in my parents basement ...like some gritty spread on the hopes, ill's, and dreams of early 1990s urban Canada... it totally has that vibe that makes me nostalgic for faded glossy 35 mm photos (not to mention cooler weather). Now it just needs an early 90s car ad at the end...

This is Hamilton right? Great set... didn't realize they had areas that looked like that in Canada.

Thanks a lot for these amazing pictures, flar!

Of course, we like urban pornography, above all watching your pictures.

Wonderful photography!

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain!

This urban pornography certainly appeals to grit fetishists.

Good set.

My university friends from the Hamilton were right, the Hammer is a hardcore city. Great photos!

This one is the most amusing:

Fourth photo for the win, no doubt about it!

I didn't realize Hamilton was so gritty. I admit to not knowing it was Hamilton until a few other forumers mentioned it, but I knew it was somewhere in the wide-reaching Toronto area given the 905 area code on the phone numbers!
