- The Norfolk Southern Corporation has its corporate headquarters in Norfolk Virginia. The railway giant has a long history in the port city. After the creation of Norfolk Southern through the merger of the Norfolk & Western RR and the Southern RR, the company built a new office tower downtown. Some describe the tower as the building of "money colored glass" in reference to the green glass clad exterior and the company's very profitable earning history. In this photo the early morning sky reflects off the east facing side of the building. Canon 7D, 1/500 sec @ f/7.0, ISO 200.
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.
