We drove over to Eastville a small town on Virginia's Eastern Shore today. We saw this little place - Yuk-Yuk & Joe's Restaurant and Bar just outside of town. Typical of Virginia's rural Eastern Shore with it's tin roof, clapboard siding, oyster shell parking lot and the ever present American Flag. It was pretty empty early on a Sunday afternoon, may be it rocks on Saturday nights. Canon G11, 1/320 sec @ f.8.0, ISO 100. The sepia tone is in honor of my fellow photographer and blogger, Cait Wade and the revival of her Sepia Sunday feature.
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.
