FRAMES ~ Photo Challenge #98 : Green: ENTRY DUE DATE ACTUALLY TODAY

So I messed up when I was filling out my calendar of due dates and your Green challenge photos are actually due TODAY (March 9th.)

Yeah, my bad.

If you want to hurry up and send me what you have right now that would be great, but if you just don’t have time feel free to send them along later this week and while they won’t be in the running for “stand-out” status since that page will already be designed by the end of today, I will showcase them here and on the Kitsap Frames facebook page.

Again so sorry for the mix-up.

 

 

Kitsap Sun Instagram

We started up a Kitsap Sun Instagram account in an attempt to keep readers up to date on the things going by using the savvy photo sharing site.

I will post photos from various assignments that Larry Steagall and I are on, behind the scenes shots from the newsroom, spot news photos as they happen and photo contributions from fellow staff writers and editors etc.

Follow us if you wish and/or tag us in on things so we know what is going on out there in our photo-loving community!

FRAMES: Scenes From The Kitsap Stampede

FRAMES: Photo of the Day: The Lighthouse Keeper

The coolest part of my job…well okay ONE of the coolest things about my job, is that I get to go places and see things that the general public doesn’t usually get to see.

Hence was the case this week when writer Amy Phan and I ventured to Hansville for a story on the Point No Point Lighthouse renovations. While the public can peek into the lantern of the lighthouse from the ladder and see the fresnel lens, getting this close and personal is usually not allowed because of the fragility of the lens…it already has one giant crack in it.

Since I am from Michigan (the state with the greatest number of lighthouses at 124) I have a great admiration for these beacons on the shore and was thrilled to get to see the inside of this one.

“Fair Evening Glory” by Rob Bugary

*** note from the photographer: “I was in the process of ordering a funnel cake in the main stage area when I looked up and saw the evening sky full of red. I told the people in the stand, “Hold the cake!”, and ran to the fair rides for a photo. 3 shots exposure bracketed and blended to capture the full dynamic range.”***
