Friday My Town Shoot Out - Metal

I have been loving my camera so much that I've joined a casual group of photographers who all work on the same assignment all week and post the images on Fridays. It's called the "My Town Shoot Out" blog and although they've been going on for a long time, this was my first week. The idea is to take the weekly assignment and show off what you have available to you and your photography skills based on the theme. The assignment was "metal".

My first photo is one of the many beautiful buildings in Detroit.

This photo, also from Detroit, is of some metal work on a wooden door of a church.

My next two photos are the sundial at the local public library.

The National Coney Island has a huge spinning metal tower as it's sign post.

And I don't live too far from what's referred to as "The Nautical Mile" where I found these beautiful lamp posts.

That's it for me this week. Next week's theme is "Colors of the Rainbow" and I already took some great pictures today!

Elissa, GREAT shots! And welcome to the Shoot-out Gang! You will LOVE it! I don't know if Gordon has your link yet - if not, I will let him know. People tend to check his site to see who all of the members are. I have added you to mine as well.

Your pictures were awesome! I laughed when I saw the first one - it is exactly the type of picture that I love to take!

Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Oh, my water bottle - it is from a Canadian athletic wear store called Lululemon. They are extremely popular - they started out of Vancouver, and are now all across the country. Everyone here loves their Lulu!
