This one will actually require some thought and planning.
Unlike my previous attempt from the Big GIG 2 where one of my shots just happened to fit the category that I didn't know about before taking the picture.

Didn't see this comment thread earlier, so I deleted this post from the assignment thread and re-posted here to avoid adding chatter. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Excellent theme this week!
I will definitely gather a few images for this one. I've photographed my town quite a bit over the years and it's been about 4-5 years since I put any serious effort into capturing it, so I'm due for a re-do.
In case anyone is interested in seeing "old" shots of "My Town" as a jumping off point for your own photographic adventure, here they are. Not all that great, but it was fun putting together the various galleries for others to enjoy.
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's efforts on this one. Have fun shooting and sharing "Your Town."

Be it city, town redwoods, or desert, produce a photo essay on where you live. I was hoping for an urban vibe in these photo essays, but not all of us live in the city or town. I'm looking forward to these submissions.
This is the hardest task yet. I feel no attachment to the town where we live. It certainly isn't my town and is just a repetitive cycle of restaurants, vets, orthodontists, nail bars and other non-descript, non-essential look-a-like thrown-up commercial establishments without taste, passion or even the saving grace of being crapulent...they just are.
I'll see what I can do.
I have just the opposite problem, DC is such a large and diverse area capturing it in only three pics is gonna be a real challenge. I haven't figured out exactly what my approach will be, but I have a few ideas, all based on the very diversity of the area. got a possible first shot purely by accident on my way to the International MC show in town yesterday afternoon hidden in between some office buildings in the heart of the city, glad I had my P&S with me! The big question is if I'm going include any of the many recognizable structures, most have been shot so many times, or maybe just one if I can find some unique way of capturing it.....
My first time posting shots with you professionals...hope I did'nt mess up too much! I dont live in town so I just tried for a few good shots.... I'm new to this so please excuse...
"You must provide the EXIF information if asked. If you need help, we can show you how to find it or even link it to your photo."
Is EXIF a time/date stamp?
This is a cool pic. I can't believe they still have the holiday lights up. Looks like a nice setting for a BMW MOA Foundation holiday card. Just sayin'. . . .
I was thinking the same. I should have brought the bike over yesterday, but I was out riding on Sat. and spent most of the day Sun. doing maintenance. Just got 2" of snow last night, and it's still falling. May make for a nice shot, but my baby's all clean (they salt the roads in NY).
The shot's a little out of focus. I think I need one of those mini tripods so that I always have one with me. I was balancing the camera on my knee (sounds like a song).
Here's another try:
I wanted to shoot the clock from below, to show two faces, to show the tree and to show the gazebo. There's also an American flag, but I thought that was asking too much...
If you're not already familiar with it, I highly recommend the Joby Gorillapod. It has three articulated legs, so in addition to a simple, free-standing tripod, you can wrap the legs around anything for a very sturdy grip. As a bonus, it's super light weightÔÇöideal for motorcycle travel. They run about $40.
