YARD STICK

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 :)
