- A pigeon looks out one of the holes ripped into the sculpture "The Sphere" during the 9/11 attacks. Once located at the World Trade Center Plaza the sculpture was retrieved from the wreckage and relocated to Battery Park where it serves as a memorial to the victims of the attack and as a home for many roosting pigeons. Had a nice trip to NYC today for a business meeting at New York City Transit, 2 Broadway and got time to catch a few early morning pics. Canon G11, 1/250 sec @ f/5.6, ISO 400.
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.
