Had an impromptu run to Virginia Beach and found a few hours to do a little shooting. Oceana is normally a hive of activity but not so much this time around, as 4 carrier groups are out to sea. Managed to get a few of the locals though.

Just a quick walk aroung the building is starting to show the start of fall, which I love. Went from 80 degrees to 54 over night, hoping to get out to Skyline Drive next weekend for a fall colors run.

There are a couple of buildings I like in Ballston, part of Arlington, VA, so thought I'd run down there and catch a little bit of the sunset after work. It's pretty bustling down there, but thins out quick after dark.

Wow, what a welcome addition to the camera bag.
Went to do a few test shots with it last night and I am really pleased with the purchase. Great focal length, I can see this becoming a classic like the Nifty 50. Great for if you don't want to get a 35mm and/or the 50mm primes, this obviously...
Not sure that there's much here, but I liked 4, and I'm ust a sucker for old nick-knacks, and places full of them. I liked the texture in the old cracked paint as well.

I just liked the pops of color and the couple reminded me of the couple in the painting.

Quick revisit to Dulles yesterday for sunset. The lack of clouds made for a very nice gradient across the sky with the sun setting directly behind me.
I plan on getting out for a sunrise session, hopefully with some cloud cover for a bit more eye appeal.

A quick run out to Dulles, closest I've been to an airport in almost 2 years, and the itchy feet are getting bad. Can't wait to GTFO.
Finally getting the new travel rig dialed in and can't wait to go on a trip and not carry 30lbs of gear around.

I go to Va Beach once a month and always try to carve out some time to get toes in the sand. My first dawn patrol thee in many years, and without a surfboard which was a strange feeling. This past Saturday I made it down for sunrise at the pier.

Nothing like the smell of funnel cakes, smoked turkey legs, and the clanking of hastily assembled whirling machines.

From tonights walk around town. Was trying to get one more night with the tower of lights illuminated, but no dice. They were supposed to , but oh well. Still pleased with what I did manage to grab. Played with a bit of HDR for a couple of these.
