Hamilton City Gallery and Photo Essay: What is Hamilton, besides my last name? It's the first large Canadian city I ever lived in, it's where I started my career as a professional artist, photographer and writer, it's where I met my wife and it's the home of Modes of Flight. This city gets a bad rap. Right across the country it's known as the "Stinkin' Steeltown" among other pejoratives. Local weekend party animals will forever say it's boring; that there's nothing to do here. Even though it is the second largest city in the province of Ontario, there are some in Toronto--a mere 64 kilometers (40 miles) away, who actually don't know where this place is. There are those who believe that Hamilton's only salvation is its CFL team, the Hamilton Tiger Cats but, nevertheless, there are those residents who are still proud to be "Hamiltonians." There are many web sites about the city. Alot of them are heritage and historical sites. I prefer to use my site to show what this town currently looks like. The good, the bad and the ugly.
