City Icons Photo Challenge

City Icons Photo Challenge

I was down at the South Perth foreshore the other night looking at a very familiar view and it got me thinking. Since RAW has so many members from around the world how about you share a photo of your cities icon.

You can post them to the Facebook Group, Google+ Community or in the comments below.
