I went to the Commodore Theater in Portsmouth Virginia tonight to see the movie Star Trek. Great movie! The Commodore is a classic 1940's Art Deco theater that has been restored and shows current first run movies. This photo was taken from our table looking towards the curtain clad screen. What a way to see a movie, big screen, THX sound and lots of elbow room. Canon G10, 1/3 sec @ f/3.5, ISO 200, 11mm equivalent focal length. Camera sitting on a rail triggered with the self-timer.
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.
