Shoot Eleven - Scituate Light Bonus
Rome - there was no way you needed the last few clues, right? Too easy complained a few! Being cities of the world, there will not be many, if any, really tough one - sorry. Last week I heard from Marianne, Jim, Mike, Elaine, Michelle, Joani, and Peyton.
"Pontiac in Neon"
This was my bonus shot on the shoot to see Scituate Light. I have passed this neon sign at the wrong times - during the day, when it was being repaired, when it was turned off, or when the traffic in the area did not allow a stop. nTonight was different as all of the aforementioned obstacles were not there - the sign was lit! After pulling into the parking lot, I broke out my tripod and camera and shot away! With some post-processing to put the background in total darkness, it was done! Serendipity wins again!
Better get out the atlas as this year I will be featuring some of the more famous cities of the world! Here are some interesting facts about one of them. Just what city would I be visiting?
