Dominion Fisheye

- Got to take a trip up to the 20th floor of Dominion Enterprises in Downtown Norfolk Virginia today. It was cold and windy out on the deck. The 20th floor says a lot about the company who reserved the best space in its office tower for employee training and education. While you are up there learning you can enjoy some of the best views of the Elizabeth River waterfront. iPhone 4, 1.469 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 80, Olloclip fisheye lens adapter.

Southgate Terminal

- These waterfront condominiums were created from the old Southgate Forwarding and Storage Company Warehouse adjacent to Norfolk Virginia's historic Freemason neighborhood. The pier-warehouse was served by the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway. The shipping business in this area declined rapidly after World War II and the piers and warehouses were largely abandoned by the 1960's. Today most have been converted into residential condominiums. Canon G11, 1/250 sec @ f/7.1, ISO 200.

WisKy Shiloutte

From 2010 Blog
- The battleship USS Wisconsin is silhouetted by the setting sun. The Wisconsin is known by its nickname "WisKy" because the damaged bow was once replaced with the bow of the unfinished USS Kentucky. It berthed in Norfolk Virginia adjacent to the Nauticus, National Maritime Center. It is open to the public. Canon 40D, 1/800 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 200, zoom at 17mm wide angle.

Night Harbor

From 2010 Blog
- The San Diego harbor and night skyline. I took this picture back in November 2006 from the deck of a harbor dinner cruise boat. It was a great clear night. I was surprised that I managed to make the picture this sharp with a relatively long exposure and the camera braced on the rail of the boat. Canon Rebel XTi, 1/3 sec @ f/3.5, ISO 800.

Harbor of Hospitality

From Elizabeth City
Storm clouds advance on the "Harbor of Hospitality". The Elizabeth City North Carolina harbor is on the Pasquotank River, which connects to the Albemarle Sound and is part of the Intracoastal Waterway. This photo is from a June 2006 visit.

269 - Onancock

From 365 Project
We paid a visit to Onancock on Virginia's Eastern Shore today. The name, Onancock, is derived from the Indian word "auwannaku" meaning foggy place. The little town near the Chesapeake Bay dates to 1680. We had a nice lunch at Mallard's on the Wharf where this picture of the small harbor was taken. Canon G10, 1/2000 sec @ f/4.0, ISO 200.
