All of the subjects I selected for this week’s photo challenge were photographed on the Long Beach Peninsula. Below is a Fresnel Lens used for decades in two lighthouses to warn sailors near Cape Dissapointment. I love how light reflects and fractures along the bevels of the glass.
This first order Fresnel lens that lighted both Cape Disappointment and North Head lighthouses for decades, is now a featured attraction at the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center in Ilwaco, WA.
Walking the beach one day I came upon this mostly intact Bald Eagle eggshell. What a find!
Folks on the Long Beach Peninsula have a hearty sense of humor. At Christmastime they decorate this crab-trap Christmas tree structure with holiday lights and have an evening celebration to welcome the season.
When I was a kid, individual amusement rides like the one below were in front of most of the big grocery stores. Just put your nickle in the slot and gallop off into the sunset!
Hi Ho Silver – Away!
