Thursday Thirteen 6/19/08 22nd Edition



Thirteen Pictures Taken Through the Lens of Love

Awhile back in this post, I got a little poetic about the Lens of Love and some of my first attempts at some pictures that were a little more creative than my usual complete lack of creativity back when Tom and I fell in love. For this week's Thursday Thirteen, I bring you 13 of those shots, all taken at the beautiful and magical Oregon Coast, a place that will always be special to us.

Mousing over pictures shows descriptions.
Clicking on a picture will open it in a new window/new tab
(and the full version will be the better version, I promise!).
Closing that tab will bring you right back here.

Photobucket
You can see more about both Yaquina Head and Yaquina Bay Lighthouses here (or these two plus the other lighthouses in Oregon here).

Today is smoke-free day 368, and I'm still counting.

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others' comments. It’s easy, and fun! Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

  1. Maggie,
    I love the photos...I have always wanted to go to the Oregon Coast and actually booked a trip to Depo Bay, Oregon for next summer. Where were yours taken? It looks like a really romantic trip.
    Peace,
    Diva

    And it's neat to fall in love. I have been there for over 40 years now.
