Some great photos of some great icons here in this thread. Thanks for sharing!

A famous icon of my city: The Devilshouse - a city castle built in the 16th century. It was called the Devilshouse because of the  statues on the building. Some of the statues have an upperbody that  is human where the lower part of the body belongs to a goat. People used to tell scary stories because of that. From 1539 until 1575 the house belonged to warlord Maarten van Rossum. And since then it is called House of Maarten van Rossum

It used to be bigger - see 2nd photo of 1910

Some great destinations here.  Here's a photo taken from a ferry looking out to our fine city.

Good work fellas, keep em coming :)

Interesting thread, I guess when you're living near some sights there's no way around taking some pictures of them sooner or later.

Agreed, I am never inclined to go shoot these places, would much rather shoot some bugs or seascapes, but friends/family wanna go and once there what better way to kill time than to shoot ;)
I have to admit though, If I get a good clean shot I am happy I went :P

So it's also tricycling-friendly?   ;)

Great Photos, I had fun tying to figure what city the pict was in if not labeled.

I am bummed I live in the sticks. No city-scapes and famous landmarks here .

Wait... wait - one of the first carousels in the USA is here and a church from the days of the whaling industry is still being used. I guess I will have to take some picts. I'll have to start a new forum - Semi-famous little town landmarks.
