    I have a bunch, but most are at the hyper detail level and wouldn't really give you much of a feel for the town. But here are two somewhat representative streetscapes.

    West Chester, PA:

    I live just outside Lunenburg Nova Scotia. Because of the proximity I will claim Lunenburg as my home town. Lunenburg is small yet it is a UNESCO World Heritage site and if Raleigh is a town I am not sure what we are :smile:

    Ray,
    I like those. I'll try to get some street shots from Raleigh (or Chapel Hill) to post, although it may be a week or so.



    Grant,
    Raleigh is definitely larger than a town, but it doesn't exactly qualify as a large metropolis, either.

    Home,town

    To me this is quite a question. Everyone in my family has left the nest, we don't seem to sit still.
    But we can also grow roots if the climate is right - and when my dearest and me moved here we actually bought our place in the sun.

    So, "home":

    and "town": Montale,PT, Italy

    It sits inbetween these two (Pistoia and Prato):

    This is where they've filmed that new tv series Haven isn't it? Or Chester nearby? It's a fabulous looking place and I always pause the recording on the aerial shots to have a good look. It's now on my list of places to "must visit".
