- These four benches at the Stockley Gardens park in the Ghent section of Norfolk have been retro fitted with center arm rests to discourage sleeping on the park benches by the homeless. Someone had left a Gideon's New Testament Bible encased in a plastic sandwich bag on the first bench. I wonder what Jesus would have thought about the anti bum bars? Canon 7D, 1/500 sec @ f/6.3, 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.
