The elegant curves of the mezzanine and balcony at the Sandler Center for the Preforming Arts in Virginia Beach. Virginia. I was looking up from my seat in the right orchestra while waiting for Michael McDonald to come on stage. The Sandler Center is a beautiful building with great acoustics. Canon G10, 1/10 sec @ F/2.8, ISO 200 hand held, a testament to the built-in image stabilization on this camera. Converted to B&W in Photoshop Elements 6 with the Silver Efex Pro filter.
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.
