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.
Je Suis Charlie - borrowed my current avatar from Lucille Clerc who drew it.

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.)

This is not actually my city, but it is my father in law´s birth place. This is the UNESCO World Heritage town Røros. It is a copper mining community, established in 1684. Very harsh environment, very hard work and lots of stories. This is the clock tower, which was used to call anything from start and end of the various shifts, breaks, fires etc. In the back ground the iconic church, which has just been restored. Well worth a visit.

Love the foreground contrast with the fog-enshrouded church.

Hey guys, how you going!

I'm re-upping my two pictures, the previous post got garbled. Surprisingly high density of people from my town on CR, I never thought until looking at this thread!

So greetings from the city that doesn't manage to finish building an airport, but sinks it's whole budget into the attempt. The Berlin megalomania is a common disease that affects local politicians since decades. If you're the capital, you have to be important - being broke only qualifies as a minor distraction from building the next Pyramids :-\
