Title: Photos of your where you live
Post by: Matt Emery on February 12, 2008, 12:28:08 AM
I'd love to see a few photos of where everybody lives.

Here's a few photos of where I live... the beach is at the end of the street, about 200 metres from home.  I was lucky enough to find a very cheap apartment to rent close to the beach and the national park.

Here's a picture I took while walking in to the hunting shack last winter, up here in northern Wisconsin.

Here's a sample of the Waitakere Ranges in Auckland, New Zealand. Not too far from where I live. Beautiful place.

Looks like a beautiful place Phanatic.  I'm glad you can live so close to such a paradise.

Yeah, it's nice to see places not ruined by modern "development". Last year, my biology class went on a field-trip there. Had a good talk with an exchange student from a small town in Austria. He was pretty amazed at it all, saying he half-expected to see monkeys living in the trees. I was pretty interested in what he said, telling me how his grandfather taught him to hunt but to also respect the land. I think this is something boys these days should learn, maybe as a rite of passage, which these days seem to be forgotten.

Yes.  Today's right of passage involves being an Emo, whom I think are actually staging a a silent protest against the empty values of middle class society, which I applaud.  Kids (specifically adolescents) are notorious for challenging the 'old guard', and I think we should listen to them more.

And yes, I think we should listen to indigenous people more.  As they seem to know a thing or two about how life works  ;)

i just asked my daughter what an Emo kid is and she said it`s a kid who is severly depressed and often thinks of slitting their wrists.......
don`t think there is anything to applaud there, do u?

I applaud their protest, not their destruction.  I think you misunderstood me Renee.

Oh there is a huge desert in the state. Right there with THE MOUNTAINS about 600-700miles away. When I was in the military, I found out thats what most people thought of, when they pictured Texas.
