- Many of Virginia's counties have 300+ year histories and Northampton County on Virginia's Eastern Shore is one of the oldest. The building in the foreground is the 1731 Courthouse while the building in the background is the 18th century Clerk's Office once home to the oldest continuous county court records in the country which have been maintained since 1632. The entire courthouse green complex is one of the best preserved in Virginia and so ends today's Virginia history lesson. Canon G11, 1/640 sec @ f/8.0, 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.
