Early evening outside the Paul and Rosemary Trible Library on the campus of Christoper Newport University in Newport News Virginia. Our son Michael graduates from CNU tomorrow and the Candlelight Ceremony was held tonight. Former U.S. Senator from Virginia Paul S. Trible, Jr. has been the President of CNU since 1996 and has transformed the university. The new library was dedicated last year to honor President Trible and his wife Rosemary for their leadership at this up and coming public liberal arts college. Canon G10, 1/13 sec at f/3.5, ISO 400.
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.
