Weekly Photo Challenge: Minimalist


A few days ago I visited Lynnwood’s Heritage Park hoping to tour a vintage trolley car from the Seattle – Everett Interurban Railway and learn a little about the town’s pre-Depression era poultry boom as the second largest egg producing area in the country.  This three acre city park is actually the final resting place for a number of historic buildings that were moved to make way for freeway expansion projects but a post about the collection will have to wait for another day.  The restored trolley car was behind a  locked gate and the buildings were closed for the season so I wandered through the wet grass taking pictures some pretty fall mushrooms.

    1. Nice, Janet I guess their beauty is the hook for the poisonous ones. 🙂 Since I don’t know safe from unsafe I have a hands off policy all around but enjoy taking pictures from a distance. 🙂


  1. This is pretty cool, but nothing can beat my favourite mushroom pic of yours: that one that almost looked like a cartoon, with the polka dots!
    Also, your minimalist vibing tree from last week would have fit this theme too! 🙂


    1. I was surprised to learn this too. The electric railroad brought families north from Seattle to live and farm while still being close enough to a city to sell their goods. The chicken farms didn’t survive the depression but it’s nice to know some history has been preserved.


  2. a beautiful capture. i have just noticed this variety of toadstools for the first time this year as well, and have captured a few images with my cell phone since my camera wasn’t with me. don’t know what this variety is called, but they are definitely camera magnets. thanks for sharing 🙂
