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. A view that is so well known to local photographers but perhaps not to those travelling through your city or town.

Photos need to be in by Wednesday the 25th of Feb.

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