This set of stairs is part of what used to be someone’s home – at the Admiralty Head Lighthouse on Whidbey Island.
Up and down the stairs, multiple times a day to light it and to clean the glass. Whew!
A “long” 1/5 second exposure in the woods

A new growth of “scissor plant” I found down by the lake side at Lake Sammamish State Park today.
Still so little, I probably wouldn’t have noticed it if Isaac and I hadn’t laid out our blanket nearby.
So I got out my extension tubes, and snapped a shot.
Does anyone else remember picking these as kids and making “scissors”?
The rhododendrons in our apartment complex are really starting to take off. They are in varying stages of bloom all around, and in a awesome variety of colors!
Just across the street from our place is this bright red bush:
I’ve added this to Photo Friday: Crimson.
Down the walk a bit is another big flowering bush, and while pink is not usually my favorite color, this plant is my favorite rhodie, with it’s subtle pink and deeper pink outline on each petal:
and not to mention it’s cute little stamen that look like they have eyes!
While I’m waking up, and waiting for my little niece and nephew to arrive, I thought I would look through my photos from the last few days and see if I have photos to apply to the Scavenger Hunt prompts!
Here is what I found:
And there they are, my Scavenger Hunt interpretations of the week!

I built my light box today! It’s so much fun. To make it, I used the directions found here, at nickexposed.com.
I quickly scavenged the apartment for anything and everything I could stick in there.
These two are my favorites.
Do either of these count as my ‘with selective focus’ ? I think so.
Remember tonight’s the start of Daylight Savings, so set your clocks an hour forward!
So, I have been at this for a little over a month now, and I have
92 people -between email alerts and facebook- following my blog. This is amazing! Thank you for following me!
I was thinking, maybe since the monumentus one hundredth follower is imminent, I should offer some sort of a drawing when that time rolls around! When I started this blog I thought I would be offering you equal parts food and photography adventures, and while there have been some of both, I have been using it far more for a place to showcase my photography.
That being said, I now want to hear from you. If you were to win, which would you rather receive as a prize; a set of 5 note cards with my photos on them, or a dozen homemade whole wheat bagels?
Today Isaac and I took Ashley and Stan up to the Smith Tower! It’s a great view of the city, that offers a different perspective to the Space Needle.
*edit* I just added this photo to the Photo Friday challenge, found here! Check it out, add your own! :)
