T38 talon displayed at Johnson Space Center

Nasa's Johnson Space center near Houston, Texas has two T38 Talon jets displayed out in front of the entrance to the facility. The Northrop T38 was the first and most produced supersonic trainer. These jets remain in service even today in air forces throughout the world including the United States Air Force (USAF), which remains its largest user.
These jets were once known as "the white rocket" due to their speed and climbing ability

Old shed wall

Some images just beg to be rendered in sepia.

Photo from last week

As I passed an antique store, I caught a glimpse of an old mirror leaning against the wall. The mirror didn't interest me, but the reflection did. Around the block I went, and captured this shot.

Flying Flip-flop

The challenge of the week on Photos is to shoot an object suspended. Here is one of my entries. Took about 5 tries to capture it.
