Round Robin Challenge: Landmarks

Hi, Robins! Thanks for all the great entries for our "Railroads" challenge. Now it's time to announce the next one. The Challenge topic for Saturday, January 26th is

This Challenge Is Now Closed. Thank You For Playing!!!
Landmarks!

Our own Carly of the blog Ellipsis suggested this back in November. She explains it thus:

Again, let's take an opportunity to show off our hometowns. I live in the Bay Area, so I have no real shortage of recognizable landmarks, so what I would do is try to show those landmarks in an interesting lighting circumstance, such as a sunset, or under special lighting conditions. But I want to see other places, and the landmarks that make those places so special. A beautifully designed building, an incredible bridge, or a monument of some sort, or maybe even an unusual road sign. It's all good!

So. How about where you live? Is there an historic building or a famous statue that you'd like to photograph? A 200-year-old tree in the center of town? The world's oldest McDonald's? A funny sign? A bridge shaped like a diamondback rattlesnake? Whatever it is, RSVP in the comments below, go take your photos, and meet us all back here and in your very own blog on the posting date of Saturday, January 26th. You can post up to six days later if you need to, but please don't post your entry early. Your RSVP comment, as always, should be in this format:

I'll be there, with (liberty) bells on!

I'm really sorry, but I came down with a bad headcold and can't participate in this weeks challenge. This is the first chance to let you know, as I'm feeling well enough to get on the computer briefly. Sorry about this and I'll participate again later when I'm feeling better. So please go ahead and delete my name from the list for this week.

Sincerely,
Biker Betty
