"The Mean Stuf" is the tag line for a security product called Razor Ribbon Helical. Often used with old fashion concertina wire, the tight loops of razor wire make for a nasty barrier. However, I have often noticed how the sun plays off the shiny surfaces, changing with each helical turn. So late this afternoon I took the opportunity to make this picture. Canon 7D, 1/800 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 200, 55mm focal length.
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.
