Simple Flower

- This pretty little flower was in a planter adjacent to the sidewalk in the Freemason neighborhood in Norfolk Virginia. Using the macro lens I was able to just bring the flower into focus and the shadows allowed the background to fade away. I was happy for the effect even with the mid-day sun. Canon 7D, 1/1000 sec @ f/6.3, ISO 200, 100mm macro lens.

Beaux Arts

From 2010 Blog
Keeping with yesterday's architectural theme, today's photo is another one of my favorite Norfolk Buildings. The former Norfolk Public Library on West Freemason Street is a good example of Beaux Arts Classicism. It was designed by Herbert D. Hale of Boston. The interior retains many of its original features including a central white marble staircase. Funded by a grant from Andrew Carnegie and completed in 1904, the building today has been restored for use as offices. Canon 40D, 1/40 sec @ f/6.3, ISO 200.
