It's my "fabulous 52" edition of iPhone Wednesday, where the image is taken and edited with the iPhone using one or more fun apps. This is where i have my panic attacks, on these see-through stairs from the pedestrian bridge that crosses the railroad tracks down to the beach at Carkeek Park. Right about where that guy is standing. We went tide pooling on the beach yesterday morning with a park naturalist. Looking down we saw crabs, anemones, kitons, barnacles, and roly polies. Looking up we saw eagles and crows. The whole park had been taken over by the happy noises of hundreds of children enjoying summer day camps in view of all of Puget Sound and clear to the Olympics. That's where I keep my eyes when ascending and descending the see-through stairs, cuz if I look down, I'll just freeze in place, right about there :-). (Happy La Fête Nationale to those of you in France! Seattle salutes you in many Bastille Day celebrations here today.)

Kim, it's been a year of astonishing cell-phone images. Who knew you could create art and check in on a friend with the same device?

I know what you mean about those see-through stairs. I don't like them either.

I am always surprised by the quality of images you get from your iphone. Mine never turn out that well.

Damn, that's a good picture. Looks like you used a Holga-ish filter. I get delivery of an iPhone 4 in a few days and I'm interested to see how the camera differs from my 3G.

Oh I hear ya. I went to the tower of a camp yesterday where SOME PEOPLE zipline. Not me . I was proud to have traversed the bridge and climbed the itty bitty ladder to the see through platform.
