    Post up a picture of what you consider to be the most popular location, event, or structure of your city!
    I think this could be a lot of fun and could be a nice on going thread!

    I'll start:
    Roanoke, Va-The Star

    Thanks again! I'll update the post with location info but it's Dodge Center, MN - a very small farm town in south east Minnesota.

    I'll admit, I love that photo - but it wasn't easy. I must have taken ~200 shots of these things and there are only a handful I really like.

    OK, here's mine. This is all I could come up with...

    Largest employer in the county.

    That's pretty much all there is here... That, and a bunch of farms.
    "Downtown" is only a few blocks, and the tallest building in the town is the hospital...

    I didn't really feel like driving anywhere, and if I did all I would come home with would be a picture of an empty field...

    I could get some VERY cool pictures out at the airport, but cameras are forbidden...

    There are only 2 reasons people come here: Work, or they live in an even smaller neighboring town and we have the closest grocery store.

    Bad Oeyhausen, Germany

    The building is former Royal Palace in which Montgomery made his HQ after WW2 but which the Nazi owner said he would rather burn it to the ground than give it to the Brits. Lovely building though - my photos really don't do it justice but it was my first day with the e500. (excuse the watermark - it was my first time using Picasa. It's not on my other images :D
