- New bubble wand, beautiful sunlight and a nice breeze challenged my camera today. I got a couple of nice photos and ending up choosing this one for today's blog post. Take a look at the runner up and see which one you like best. I bet I looked pretty strange waving the bubble wand and then running with the camera trying to catch the bubbles before they popped. Canon 40D, 1/200 sec @ f/6.4, ISO 200, 50mm, a full frame image with no cropping.
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.
