It rarely snows in Southeast Virginia, so when it does, even a little, it is big news. Today was one of those days. It had rained for two days so when temperatures dropped in the early morning hours we got a dusting of snow. The resulting icy roadways turned morning commutes into harrowing adventures. Schools closed or delayed opening and accidents tied up traffic for hours. There wasn't enough snow for a good winter photo but the light white crust highlighted the pattern of lines on my backyard deck. Forecasts are calling for mid 60's by the end of the week, so spring will soon return. Canon G10, 1/13s, f4.0, ISO 400, 30mm equivalent focal length.
From 365 Project The Air Force Memorial in glows against low hanging clouds and mist. Located on a promontory in Arlington, Virginia, overlooking the Pentagon and adjacent to Arlington Cemetery, the memorial's three 270 feet tall stainless arcs evoke the spirit of flight. Taken with a Canon 40D, 5.0s exposure at f/8.0, ISO 200, 28mm equivalent focal length, mounted on a tripod.
This is a reproduction on an early 20th Century "squirrel cage" carbon filament light bulb built by Thomas Edison. In today's modern reproductions the filaments are made of tungsten, which burns three times brighter than the original carbon filament versions. They are really getting popular in vintage bare blub fixtures. This one was hanging over my table at Tarrant's Cafe , 1 W. Broad Street in Richmond Virginia. Canon G15, 1/15 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 200, in macro mode.
