Sand Man

Paid a visit to the Virginia Beach Ocenafront to see the results of the North American Sandsculpting Championship held as part of this year's Neptune Festival. There are 22 sand sculptures on view through Sunday October 10th. This is a closeup from the 3rd place doubles team of Jill Harris and Thomas Koet from Florida entitled In One Ear Out the Other. It's worth the trip and the three bucks ticket charge to see these cool creations. Canon 5D Mark II, 1/60 sec @ f/5.0, ISO 200, zoom at 165mm.

Mediterranean Feel

Yesterday was an unusually warm day for late October with highs in the low 90's. During our visit to Homearama in Norfolk's East Beach neighborhood there was one house that took the bold design step of bucking the modern beach cottage theme embraced by the other homes. The St. Mary house designed by Duff Kliewer of Cox, Kliewer & Co has a very Mediterranean feel with its enclosed courtyards and exterior plaster. This is the rear courtyard under the arbor which made me think of a sunny Mediterranean day. Canon G11, 1/2000 sec @ f/3.5, ISO 200, converted to sepia tone.

Yuk-Yuk & Joe's

From 2010 Blog
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.
