106 – After the Snow

Posted in Aviation by lwroffee on January 31, 2010

There were only a couple of inches of snow at the airport today, but the shady sides of the wings were covered with ice.  Even with a lot of brushing it didn’t melt in time for a flight.  The helicopter did a good job as a snow blower, however.

105 – Road Signs

Posted in Aviation by lwroffee on January 24, 2010

I have seen this affect numerous times flying when at a low altitude early in the evening.  The sun is hitting road signs and one can see the colorful reflection from the air..  Yesterday was the first time I had a camera ready.  The other photo was taken in the turn to line up for the signs.  A nice flight.

It has finally warmed up a bit here.  I caught the late afternoon sun on a street lamp.

102 – Enough!

Posted in Around Our Home by lwroffee on January 11, 2010

I took this photo last July from about the same position as I took the snowy scene in post 99.  I need warm weather.  No, make that hot weather.

103 – Not an Exit, But Art

Posted in Washington DC Places and People by lwroffee on January 10, 2010

I was forcing myself to delete unusable photos this evening and found this one.  It was taken in the Corcoran Gallery of Art.  Ironically, the door is the back entrance to the galleries of the William Eggleston exhibit.

102 – Cold Winter’s Dinner

Posted in Around Our Home by lwroffee on January 9, 2010

There is nothing better for dinner on a cold night than a pot of hot chili.  Purists might object to the fact that my recipe has tomatoes and beans in it, but we like it.  Add a side of homemade corn bread and coleslaw and its perfect.

101 – Way Too Cold

Posted in Around Our Home by lwroffee on January 8, 2010

It has been way too cold to venture out for picture taking.  I know, I could be a wimp, but.  The family Christmas photos are here.  And, I have updated some other galleries here.  A few days ago, I caught the light just right on the glass in our entry foyer.
