Why is this thread dead? Come on, guys. I'd be willing to bet you people post pictures on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook frequently. Why not here? This thread started off as a pretty good collection of Rochester area photography. Let's bring that back!

Here are some pictures I snapped a few days ago while I was downtown....

Classic skyline shot from Ford Street:


Skyline view looking south from Allen Street:


Looking over High Falls:


High Falls from the Pont De Reenes bridge:


Architecture sample from the sister cities garage:






And these photos are a bit older, from April I think...

Nice shots. I don't have my camera with me but here is one from school.

I recently saw the most interesting skyline view of Roch from a hill south of Honeoye Lake @ Harriet Hollister Spencer park, about 35-40 miles away. Can also see the full length of the lake, quite a view, but difficult to get a good pic.

I would LOVE to see that view. I never get out that way, but it looks like I'm going to have to make plans...

Yeah it's worth the trip to see that view from near Honeoye. When you get to the vista, you have to walk down the slope a bit before you see Roch. This is one of those views where a pic doesn't do justice, but maybe you've got a high quality cam. Right in the city you can probably get some good shots from the drumlin hills like Cobb's hill & Pinnacle Hill.

Where were you standing when you took the first picture? I have seen that angle before and always wondered where the cameraman was to get that good angle

A long time friend has been working a bit at the former Midtown area... that area is a mess now but it will be good to see a bit of revitalization. Even at the expense of Midtown.
