- The Assateague Lighthouse has a distinctive sequence of light shining, a double flash, which sets it apart from other east coast lighthouses. An automatic timer starts the process each evening. This is view of the twin rotating lights. For those of you who really need the traditional lighthouse view check out this photo from our visit in 2007. Canon Digital Rebel XTi, 1/60 sec @ f/22.0, ISO 200, 18mm 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.
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.
