This is the original Fresnel lens for the Cape Disappointment lighthouse on the Washington Coast (northern side of the Columbia River).  Can you imagine how much work it would be to put all of those pieces of glass in just the right places AND keep them clean and shining?  Whew!

This LIGHT is more modern but not as pretty as the Fresnel lens.

Uh, those in the peanut gallery, please refrain from throwing rotten tomatoes.  I’m just doing my job here.

Bonus Pic: I didn’t take this one — MusicMan’s buddy took it on a youth group trip last year — but it was a fun shot and I wanted to share it with you this week. :P

The Weekly Words Challenge has become a schitzophrenic operation of sorts… Jay manages the blogworld side of things while Tink is hosting over on facebook … and then there’s always flickr.
So many choices, so many views, and so many creative minds!
Join us! :D

**Words for next Tuesday are “HANDLE” and “POUND”**
