The Buddleja davidii is a variety of the plant commonly called a butterfly bush. This one has been moved around my yard over the years and now occupies a backyard corner. As it's common name implies, it does indeed attract the butterflies. In many areas this plant has become quite invasive and is even considered as a weed. The blooms are tightly bunched and very small but reveal their individual beauty under the macro lens. Canon 40D, 1/60 sec @ f/20, ISO 400. 50mm macro, with lighting provided by the Lightpanel Micro.
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.
