This seems appropriate in the World forum to have a topic where photos from all over the world could be posted and collected over time to create one of the best ultimate versions of photos coming together.

This topic should focus mostly on having photos up with a sense of location, best most interesting scenery, and a certain kind of theme pattern, so posts with words and no photos attached should usually be avoided, and photos that are overly off topic.

The theme pattern of photos include Nature Scenery, Architecture, Urban Scenery, Interior Environments, People Scene etc.


Some rules terms of service for having photos up: Try to first have photos up that you took yourself for places you lived in and visited.

After that, you can also have photos up that you technically did not take but you have to follow the rules of the website for how that is posted and that simply involves putting website links and adding some sentences for some of those links. You can’t copy and paste photos you did not take but you can easily add the links to them in a post. The size format of the photos should be an appropriate size and around 5 to 20 photos per post.

I have 400 other photos I took myself of Pacific Northwest and other areas of the World.

I also literally have 2,000 impressive photos in at least 50 countries for Nature Scenery, Urban Scenery, Architecture, Interior Environments, People Scene. However, most of those photos in this category I didn’t take so I would add links to them and not copy and paste. Later on, I’ll gradually have some more photos up.

I like to see the photos a lot of other people have up for places all over the World.

I am glad to see the perfect, impressive photo images in a well established pattern is showing up on this website. I was worried if it was not going to work and would have just blank images. When clicking on each photo, the photo can be seen at a much larger double the size to see more of the visual details.

My talent in photography and writing comes from an interest and I already have one of the best collections of photos from all over the world.


I forgot to add some brief descriptions to the photos I have up earlier. The first 5 photos is of historic architecture in Seattle, mostly in Downtown but also University District, and Capital Hill neighborhoods. The next 5 photos is modern form of architecture in Downtown and Alki Beach West Seattle. The next 3 photos are of Independent Café Bars with a high quality ambience, large space, and free computer wifi, and the 4 photos after that are of Seattle’s Downtown skyline.

In the next post in exact order, there is a photo of Vancouver’s skyline, a restaurant with indoor+large outdoor patio with window reflection and views of that skyline, nature scenery literally 20 minutes away from Downtown Vancouver. One of plenty charming buildings in Portland, a restaurant, and a café bar.

The last 10 photos I guess don’t need another description because I said that is magnificent nature scenery in the Cascades Mountain Range of Pacific Northwest.


A lot of areas all over the World is very photogenic, visually pleasant and exciting, so this was a good idea. I hope to see plenty of more photos posted here soon and develop an impressive, excellent collection and pattern of photos for the World forum.

Here are some from up and down the West Coast of the US. The quality is going to vary wildly... some of them were taken with a camera phone, some of them were taken with a Nikon point-and-shoot digital, and some were taken with a Nikon DSLR. Some of them are artsy, some of them are just "oh, cool!" sort of pictures. But hey, isn't that an accurate cross section of life?

Beverly Hills:


















Hollywood:




























Greater LA Area:












San Francisco:







I have more and better shots of SF, I just don't have them on this computer... I'll see if I can get around to them later.

I am glad to finally see other people having photos up for this topic! Then again, it has only been 2 days since I created the topic. It feels like I created it 7 to 10 days ago because so much happened in the past 10 days. Lol

You also have exciting, impressive photos up for the Western regions of USA in California, Washington state, and Nevada. Did you change your opinions about Seattle?

The Western areas of the USA and West Coast is very photogenic, visually pleasant, and offering a balance of Nature and Urban scenery.

That is also equally true for plenty of other countries and regions of countries for the photos I have seen of France, China, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Argentina, Austria, Taiwan, India, Thailand, Japan, South Korea. Those countries are also the other most photogenic, visually pleasant exciting countries in the World.

I'm going to suggest that we use he SPOILER feature to hide the photos. Otherwise the thread becomes too 'bulky' IMO
