- On February 9th I posted a picture of my orchid on this blog. This is the first one that re-bloomed for me. I was proud of the both the amazing flower and the photo. Tonight's photo is of the same bloom 97 days later as it begins to fade away. Although a little sad, it is still interesting and I had its full wonder to appreciate for over three months. I can now understand why Orchid lovers are so passionate about these plants. Canon 40D, 1/160 sec @ f/6.3, ISO 800, 50mm macro lens.
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.
