Our Golden Gate Bridge - which to the surprise of many is not actually 'golden' in color, its RED!
A few cameras and lenses and a lot of creative energy and imagination.

It was called Golden Gate long before the bridge, probably due to the gold rush of 1849. So iconic is the bridge that few today have any idea what the "gate" looked like before the bridge.

Thanks for sharing, clouds really go a long ways to making any photo of this icon!

This is not my city, but a very visible structure here.
I'm spending a couple of weeks in New Zealand and went to dinner near Sky City in Auckland.

Not 100% "my city", but I have spent many years studying, working, visiting and the such in this little city.
Turning Torso in Malmoe - shot from across the street with the EF-S 10-22mm. A big white of sorts, though no L, and no red ring, but it is weather sealed.

I live in a small, unincorporated community in rural Texas, whose only claim to "fame" is The Salt Lick Barbecue. I don't have a photo of that (it's pretty hard to get a shot that isn't infested with diners / tourists), but here's a shot of the only other "landmark" in town ...

(Oh, by the way, the owner has restored the gas pump since I took this shot in 2008.)
