    Seoul April 2018. Alleys and Storefronts.

    Hi UT-ers. This is a re-post; after a fashion. I posted some of these pics in May 2018. Then, the post disappeared about a month later. I asked Craig/interchange42 what happened; and he said nothing from their end, so maybe I deleted it in one of my absent-minded hazes. So here they are...

    Seoul, Busan and the 'DMZ' zone. Descriptions below each picture.

    Above: Seoul. Gwanghwamun Square is flanked on both sides by a very broad street [Sejong Ro] of 5 lanes in each direction. This square is popular for political assembly. A few hundred yards past the parked bus is the American Embassy. And a few hundred yards beyond that is one of the very...

    Honolulu Chinatown. April 2016.

    Several square blocks. Old, very old, but vibrant enough. Reminds me of Toronto's Elizabeth Street Chinatown before its decampment to Spadina Avenue. But with a tropical flavor. Only 3 blocks away from the historic passenger line piers of Honolulu, this Chinatown is fondly remembered by a...

    St. Clairsville, OH. Feb 2011. Mustapha stops in town for a coffee/urban exploration

    Just a typical quiet Ohio town. The downtown shown here is awfully quiet; but there is a huge megamall on the edge of town. Said mall also serves the regional area; which seems to be doing alright. Some coal industry and related employment here. The local power plants are coal fueled...

    Lima, Ohio, July 3, 2011.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lima,_Ohio http://www.cityhall.lima.oh.us/ Verrr-y quiet on this July 3 Sunday afternoon. Many 'heritage' older office buildings, old and vacant, but not abandoned. A couple of older hotels - given over to social housing. Tidy sidewalks and friendly people -...

    Toronto, Ohio February 2011.

    An Ohio steel town that named themselves after us. "In 1881, after a vote, the town was incorporated under its present name. This was taken from the much larger Canadian city of the same name, which civic leader Thomas M. Daniels felt was a place worth emulating." Birthplace of the late actor...

    Wheeling, West Virginia. December 2010.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wheeling,_West_Virginia A walk around the downtown. While not exactly vibrant compared to Toronto, it's a clean downtown with small energetic business startups. There is a "Central Market" - I arrived too late in the day to take pictures - the light was bad - but...

    Fallingwater Pennsylvania visit. October 2010.

    This is of course the Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece for Edgar Kaufman Sr., the department store magnate. Exterior pictures only. They don't allow interior photography. Driving time from Toronto with no waiting at US Customs, two gas breaks and a 1/2 hour lunch break: 8.5 hours. The...

    Sunday St. Lawrence Antique Market. Anyone here go? Any tales of great "finds"?

    I go a couple times a month. The food from the cafe is really good - my fave is this. They always have a special for about $8. which is big enough to share if you order a side of something. The proprietors are real nice. . . . V I found these old cufflinks and this watch...

    A 19 picture stroll down Miami's Lincoln Road Mall (a pedestrianized street).

    July 25, 2010. This street has a real different look and feel from what we Torontonians are used to. Many old buildings re-purposed, but sympathetically. Very busy on this hot July Sunday; it felt like half of Miami was here; strolling up and down.

    Old building in Charleston SC portlands area once used as a jail, now offices

    the address is 49 Immigration street. The building dates to 1903. I was on business there and had my camera handy. Possibly something to do with controlling cell doors?

    Buffalo Naval Park walkabout yesterday: warning ships, tanks and guns content :)

    Was visiting my customer The Buffalo News. This ships display is about 2 blocks away. Across the street from The Buffalo News, the Memorial auditorium demolition is in full swing too (no pictures of the demolition, sorry). http://www.buffalonavalpark.org/Ships.html
