    Anyway, I didn't make these pics, but it's pretty much what you see when driving around here.

    But at least they have some kind of plan to make sure not everyone starts building houses where they want to (I hope)

    And to make it worse, the minister of public space planning (don't know how to translate) has ordered villages and cities to start using the "sleeping' building ground they have...
     
  10. hmm not too sure about the laws here in dk about that kinda stuff, i know back home you need to get permits to build anything.

    I'm from Niagara Falls.

    That is a common sight for me.

    Also now, I live in Toronto, so this is another common sight.

    Once I get a REAL Camera, I'll take pics!
     
  14. :)
    the reason i wanted real photos not google was to see what is a normal view, not some pro photo where all the angles are right and the lightings perfect ect, but just a normal shot from the car.

    i mean i could hit google for new zealand and get these

    This picture was taken at the east end of Lac Leman (aka Lake Geneva) past Lausanne, looking towards Montreux, home of the jazz festival. This is about 20 minutes from the house.

    This area is in the west end and French speaking part of Switzerland.
