Tonight we had the opportunity to tour the Chrysler Museum's "To Live Forever: Egyptian Treasures from the Brooklyn Museum" special exhibit lead by Jeff Harrison, the Museum's Chief Curator. The Egyptian exhibit was spectacular but afterward Jeff took us on a little detour through a staff hallway which was lined with four over-sized Roman sculptures. This is the head from one which is not the original. Renaissance artists in Italy in the 17th Century reassembled the original pieces of the statues with newly carved missing sections to make them whole again. The haunting face of this man pays tribute the early Romans and their 17th century master artists descendants.

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.
