Weekly Photo Challenge: Refraction

This photo, taken of a friend’s daughter at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California, demonstrates something very bizarre, and not being a science specialist, I’ll consider it as an entry to last week’s Photo Challenge theme of Refraction. The little girl is walking on the other side of a large fish tank, with a photo on […]

We Walked Palm Springs to Fight AIDS (12)

Palm Springs by Foot and Car

My visit to Palm Springs last weekend was, as I mentioned, for charity events. A group of us, including my son and Kat, walked early Saturday morning under clear, sunny skies, raising money to fight AIDS. The Desert AIDS Walk was very successful, raising over $300,000! The 90 degree heat didn’t seem so bad, considering we […]

Palm Springs Riviera By Day

Yesterday’s article captured the magic of the Palm Springs Riviera at night, but I also managed to catch a few shots during daylight hours. Most were taken while waiting for my carpool ride (aka, my son) to pick me up on Sunday. The giant television screen over the lobby bar captured my camera’s attention with its revolving array of vintage, artsy […]

Palm Springs Riviera By Night (11)

Palm Springs Riviera By Night

I drove out to Palm Springs Friday after work, carpooling with my son, for a Saturday packed with charity events. He dropped me off at the Riviera, where I’d been lucky to get a reservation two months ago. My son was staying with friends who own a weekend home there. Hotel rooms are in demand as the desert’s autumn/winter high season […]

Rise of the Jack O’Lantern

Yesterday, after a long day at work, Kat and I jumped in my little truck and zipped onto the freeway… where we patiently sat in traffic for well over an hour until finally stopping for dinner. We then continued on to our destination in La Canada Flintridge, Descanso Gardens. A few weeks back, I’d purchased tickets for the […]

Hot Afternoon, Cool Garden Paths

Ever hopeful that our Southern California heat-spell, our never-ending summer, will finally turn to autumn, I’m posting these garden photos as inspiration for cooler days. They were taken at the beautiful Huntington Library and Gardens in San Marino. ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

Weekly Photo Challenge, Dreamy

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreamy

Following a fun week of being tour guide to visiting relatives from Germany, I’m feeling rather dreamy. Therefore this week’s photo challenge hits the right note with me! My entry for the challenge was taken from the 16th floor window of a San Diego hotel room during my visit there a few weeks back. The morning haze was thinning, […]

SueBee as Tour Guide

My niece and her 5 year old son are visiting America for the first time, coming from a very small farm village in Northern Germany. They first stayed with friends in Alamogordo, New Mexico, for two weeks, then flew to LAX where my oldest daughter, Angelika, picked them up. They stayed with her for a few days, then […]

Ocean Eye

Ocean Eye

While visiting the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach this past Sunday with relatives from Germany, I took this picture of some sort of small fish. I didn’t edit the picture at all, other than a tiny bit of color saturation. For the life of me, I can’t figure out the fish’s eye in the photo. To me it looks like […]

Southern California’s Wine Country

Taking a drive to Riverside County’s Temecula is a visit to wine country, Southern California style. It’s not as grown up as the wine regions above San Francisco, or north of Santa Barbara, or the Paso Robles area, but it’s getting there! The vines are maturing, the wineries building and expanding, the brown earth gradually […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
