Police Charger

Ran into this walking home from the Railroad Festival a couple of weeks ago. Maybe it’s the little kid in me, but I still think police cars are cool, and a police Charger is really cool.

Three RAW exposures merged and tone-mapped in Luminance HDR, then finished in Topaz Adjust 5.


Movie Night!

So my wife’s chiropractor did this promotional event where he sponsored a community movie night complete with popcorn. The weather was great, and a local eatery even ponied up a couple of big pots of chili.

LOVE On The Tracks

I had a rare opportunity to wander about by myself with my camera last Friday evening and ended up in Old Town Manassas by the pavilion where there is a small railroad display. The Virginia Tourism Corporation has set up these LOVE displays all over the state to encourage vacationers to spend their time and money in Virginia. Evidently it’s working, as their Facebook page says more than a few folks are trying to photograph themselves at all of the LOVE signs around the state.

The Candy Factory

Known locally as the Candy Factory, this building has been many things during it’s history including a grain warehouse, a candy factory, and is currently a performing arts center.
