              I love five - the juxtapositioning of a green ravine against the concrete plant is wonderful!

                Nice views, and all from your balcony?? I noticed somebody playing cricket! The high rises on #2 and #4 are eye sores!
                What stadium is that on #9?

                  One of the highrises in #2 is probably the nicest residential building in the city, actually.

                    You are a very good photographer Newfangled. What building were you taking them from?

                      #9 features none other than Commonwealth Stadium.

                      Edmonton is beautiful in the summer. The River Valley does NOT get the respect/attention/recognition that it deserves. Seriously...almost a national treasure to have such a great natural space so accessible to one of the largest cities in the country.

                        So true. Look at how much attention central park gets in NYC.

                          There are a bunch of towers at the west end of Jasper near 124st. I'm in the least fancy one.

                            OK. I was just wondering what area of downtown the pictures where taken from although I had a reasonable idea they were west side of Jasper. I remember seeing photographs in the early 80's from a similar location and the views are very different today.
