This is one of my favourite night shots..The detail, texture, colour and subject really caught my eye.

Since this photo portrays one of my best shots at long exposure work, I thought the title was most fitting..

A yard stick was the early form of portable measuring device as used by the medieval stone masons to check the accuracy/quality of their work, hence the link.. but If you look closely, a stick can be seen in the yard.. although I did not notice this until I edited the photo :)
