FSO - Urban Macro

As explained by GingerV ..... in our towns are many features that we see from a distance and think nothing of. it could be a line of pine trees on main street or Lights along a path.... but what makes them beautiful.... close up is it the pine needles or new cones on the branches? or the metal work of the light posts.... or the grain of the granite on the city hall....?

I took the first three photos when I was out last Sunday and wasn't too sure exactly what would constitute 'urban macro'.  I hope they are close enough as, until yesterday, I've been too busy with a new computer to take any others.  Then yesterday afternoon I had a little time to kill in town before going to the movies and the trolleys at the supermarket took my eye.....and then I stopped for a coffee!

To see how urban macro is done by those who know about these things, just have a look here.







Thanks to the Town Blogger Team  for the topic.   You guys are doing an amazing job!
