    WOW - great shots everyone. I started pointing out the ones I really love and there are just too many...I'm inspired to get better!
    Today I took advantage of the lovely weather to go on a late-afternoon photography stroll. So I'm showing you not so much my city (Spacy covered iconic DC shots already - can't wait for cherry blossom time!) as my neighborhood. A large park called Rock Creek Park runs north-south through the NW section of the city, and has lots of lovely arch bridges taking east-west streets over the top. I catch glimpses of potential photos as I bicycle up the trail, and I come back on foot, camera-in-hand, to see what I can capture. Today it was chock full of joggers, bikers, dogwalkers and stroller-pushers enjoying the weather. I took lots of bridge shots, and some architecture-of-my neighborhood shots.
    Thanks for looking (and reading this long-winded intro, oops!)

    5. a well-known mural near my house - too bad I can't take a level shot! I'm going back next weekend to get a better shot of this...!

    This is an excellent thread that seems to have run its course, so before it fizzles out and fades away completely, I'll add the one picture that I happen to have of my home surroundings..... This is where I live. it is so small a place that it doesn't even appear on most maps - My Home:

    Megapaws has already posted some awesome shots of Toronto in this thread (click here). Here are some of my favourite spots in Toronto in winter, summer, at sunset, and at dusk.
