- I went to a car show this afternoon at the Fairfield Shopping Center in Virginia Beach. They had a real nice collection of hot rods, restored 50's, 60's and 70's muscle cars but it is the Ford Mustangs that I gravitate to. My very first new car was a 1973 Ford Mustang Mach I, 351 Cleveland V-8, dark green metallic with saddle tan interior. I bought it at the end of the model year when the new smaller Mustang II's (yuk) were just coming out. Got a great deal and never regretted buying a gas gussler during the 1973 oil crisis. This front grill emblem was on a slick 2005 dark gray Mustang GT. Canon G11, 1/500 sec @ f/4.5, 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.
