Catalina’s Famous Casino

(24 Photos) I took a walking tour of the famous Catalina Casino, designed in the Art Deco and Mediterranean Revival styles at a cost of two million dollars, and opened May 29, 1929. The building featured the first movie theater designed for pictures with sound, “talkies”, and the world’s largest circular dance floor. The Casino gets its name […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Containers

My entry for this week’s photo challenge is that of three containers, one within the next.

Things To Do in Catalina

(20 photos) Catalina, the land of fun! I realized once I looked through my photos that I’d captured a grouping of Things To Do without realizing it. Hence this separate article. It’s pretty amazing that within a few short blocks in Avalon, a person could scuba dive, snorkel, paddle board, kayak, fish, swim, parasail, take a jeep tour, ride […]

26 Miles to Catalina

(15 photos) I spent a most pleasant vacation day off work yesterday visiting Avalon, the biggest city (2012 population 3,765) on Catalina Island, having decided to extend the celebration of my upcoming birthday beyond the actual day. Last week, I’d made a reservation on the Catalina Flyer, a large capacity catamaran, out of Newport Beach. I felt lucky as only five spots were left […]

Do You Photo Contest?

I joined a Photography Club a few months back and decided to participate in their photo contest, with a judge coming to the meeting to critique as each photo is anonymously displayed on a big screen, while club members sit quietly in the audience. As the first few photos were displayed at tonight’s meeting, and I noticed the judge’s main comments consisted of how to improve […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Relic

My dear, sweet mom. Born September 20, 1917, middle child with seven brothers bookending her. Gazing through the window, gazing through time. Lost in her memories. Where have the years gone? The typewriter. So familiar… Just like the one she used at her job in downtown Los Angeles. She rode the streetcar to get there. And wonders where is the […]

Shading Grandpa

Seems ages since we’ve done a Daily Foto Fix so I chose this very sweet picture from my batch taken at the Bowers Museum. Grandpa looks so content, the little girl very thoughtful and diligent. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

Indian Dance at the Bowers Museum

(25 Photos) Continuing my series of photos taken at the Bowers Museum during the Americana cultural festival last Sunday, I was fortunate to watch Gary Wiskigeamatyuk (Prairie Potawatomi / Ojibwe), perform authentic song and dance of North America. The music he played and the songs he sung were beautiful and haunting, the dances absolutely amazing. I have no idea how […]

An Afternoon at the Bowers Museum

(26 Photos) Tech problems behind, new laptop purchased and quickly set up, our blog is back in action! Other than the inconvenience, and nearly going blind trying to view things on a miniature iPhone screen in the interim, I’m not too annoyed. My previous laptop, gifted to me by my son, lasted nearly seven years. That’s not bad in today’s absurd “toss it” […]

Tech issues update

The new computer is being delivered tomorrow! Pending setup and learning curve, our blog should be back in action very soon. I’m attempting to write this article on my very small-screen iPhone and attach a photo taken with same at the Fullerton Arboretum last week. I don’t know how this post will look once I […]

Otherworldly Fireworks

Our town holds an annual 3rd of July Fireworks Extravaganza, which I was able to view from my front lawn, shooting over the next-door rooftop. Very convenient! I set the Nikon D5100 on 6400 ISO and hoped to hold still enough to grab a few decent shots. I am very fond of the first shot, […]

Gotta Just Grab My Bike…

Most imagine Southern California as land of the car, which it is, without a doubt. Places are spread out, public transportation isn’t sufficient for the large number of residents or geography, and people like convenience. But, there are places where the bike rules. On the campus of University of Southern California, a large, flat, beautiful […]

Pasadena Pops at the Arboretum

I look forward to the Pasadena Pops summer concert series at the Los Angeles County Arboretum in Arcadia each year. Last evening’s performance featured four of Broadway’s Leading Ladies, Susan Egan, Valerie Perri, Christina Saffran, Lisa Vroman, as well as David Burnham, also of Broadway fame. It was fabulous! I listed the songs below the […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast (2)

I couldn’t resist another entry into this intriguing theme. From my perspective, this photo taken on a main highway in Carlsbad, California, is a study in contrast if ever there was one… the old days versus nowadays. Traversing our country on foot, leading a mule, zipping across town in a speedy motor vehicle. Old-time, modern-time. Viewing […]
