Day 43: I bet you know where I am now!

Well, I guess yesterday's clue wasn't as obvious as I thought. . . You'd probably have to live in this city to know of a city with giant heads rolling around in it! This famous bridge might make it more obvious. This was shot in manual mode through the windshield of a car that was going WAY too fast! I used my 18-135 mm lens at 52mm; f/11; exp 1/200, and with a polarizing lens. I sharpened and boosted color ever so slightly. If you don't guess the city, I'll give a much more obvious clue tomorrow! This is a wonderful city for photos, but sadly, I was mostly stuck in a hotel room near icky concrete, but did manage some photos every chance I had.
