A photo posted for Karen

I thought this might make an interesting shot when we were visiting the Point Lima Lighthouse a couple of months' ago. I was disappointed that we couldn't go to the top because it was blocked off, so I took a view of the spiral staircase instead.

I'm posting this for Karen over at What Karen Sees, who is asking for participants in her new meme.

Oh Denise, thank you so much for helping me out. I don't know why I put myself through such torture. I have plenty of other ways I could spend my time...like taking pictures! HaHa Anyway I love your photo, and I'm getting dizzy just staring at it. I especially love the neutral tones are neutral because that emphasize the design. Oh, and your header is spectacular!!!

I can't imagine myself climbing all those steps. I'd be huffing and puffing and quitting midway.

Love the photo! I've been up to Point Loma many times, but I haven't gone in the light house. Next time it will be a must-do!

That's lovely: simple, elegant. It looks like an ammonite.

That's a superb shot... worthy of a design award. Wouldn't like to have to walk up the stairs though.

nice shot, but it makes me feel queasy I don't like heights and I know you're taking it from the bottom, but still makes me feel queasy!!

Stairs in Lighthouses are so fascinating and hard to climb, very nice photo. Thanks for coming by and have a nice Thanksgiving.

So pretty...I think I would call it a "study" because that's what you do when you see it!!!

It reminds me of a nauticus shell! I love lighthouses...I bet you wish you could have gone up in this one. great photo though!
