These buttons are "happy" buttons because they are not destined to just hold a plain ol' shirt closed, these buttons are embellishments! Their destiny lies in the hands of a creative scrapbooker who will adorn a scrapbook page with some of these colorful and happy buttons. This container of happy buttons resides at the checkout counter at Beach Scrapbooks in Virginia Beach. Canon G10, 1/60 sec @ f/2.8 in macro mode.
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.
