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 :-\


Very nice shots ! Love that city, and not only because of my local exes  :) ... i've been taking quite a few tail-lights trails pics in front of the gate ... Congrats as you've even managed to get a 3rd icon in both pics : the TV tower !

Since someone already posted the most famous city icon, this will have to do.  You get a Two Fer with this one.  A 2CV _and_ l'avenue des Champs-Élysées.   ;)

Ah, yes indeed, the Arc ... Nice one ... It just reminded me that i have one of my most awaited sunset from there : only 2 opportunities of 2-3 days per year (May / August) with the sun setting just under the Arc de Triomphe ... you have to get lucky with the weather, and more than 2 hours wait to get a decent spot in the middle of the Concorde square among hundreds of photographers !

My city is know for "Canopy Roads" as is old roads with trees that have grown over them.  Most of them were dirt roads until the 1980s and 1990s.  This is an old shot from 2009, which makes me think I should try to shoot it again given that my work has improved quite a bit since then...
