This antique Singer sewing machine is located in the upholstery shop at the old 18th Street bus maintenance facility in Norfolk Virginia. HRT moved out this past weekend and the buildings will be torn down next month. The building containing the upholstery shop was once the transit company's blacksmith shop and dates to the early 1900's. The site has continually served public transit since the late 1800's, first with electric trolleys and for the past 60 years as a bus operations facility. A new bus operations facility will be constructed on the site. Canon 40D, 1/60 sec at f/5.6, ISO 400 converted to black and white using Silver Efex Pro in Photoshop Elements 6.
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.
