Today’s Foto Fix is of a gnarly, old tree spotted at Riley’s Farm in Oak Glen. I wonder how many winters it’s seen. ~SueBee

I’ve not played around with photo editing much, other than adding a bit of saturation, cropping, tossing in some light here and there, but for this photo I clicked on the “invert colors” button in Picasa 3 and was so thrilled with the result, I just had to share! :) It’s an entirely new photo, breaking from reality, […]

Moorten’s Botanical Garden, part 3

Part three of my 4-part series about an interesting desert garden in Palm Springs, Moorten’s Botanical Garden. As you’ll notice in this gallery of photos, the desert plants become tropical near the area where weddings are held. The area is green and lush, and must make a beautiful setting for that special occasion. ~SueBee

Moorten’s Botanical Garden, part 1

When I took a mini get-away to Palm Springs at the end of 2014, one of the places I found fascinating was Moorten’s Botanical Garden. I wrote about their world’s first Cactarium, and will now share scenes from their desert gardens. The afternoon was extremely pleasant, the temperatures on the cooler side (Southern California’s cool), […]

Fluffy Cow

On the drive up the mountain to Oak Glen, I noticed this adorable, fluffy baby cow and family on a ranch alongside the road, begging me to take their pictures! Sorry I’m not enough of a cow person to identify their breed, but they sure are cute, long horns and all!~SueBee

Three Views Off Into the Distance

I drove to Oak Glen, near Yucaipa, off the 10 freeway, the weekend before this past one. Clear mountain air, warm temps, an all-around wonderful day. The three pictures in this gallery were taken while I was on the mountain, facing toward my route back home to Orange. Those bare apple trees in the field will be full with fruit […]

Just a touch of the Arts District from when I drove through recently on my way further into downtown Los Angeles. It’s a fascinating part of the city. I need to return when I have more time to wander around. ~SueBee

Three Views at the Arboretum

These photos were taken on a recent visit to a favorite, very beautiful place, the Los Angeles County Arboretum in Arcadia. Naturally, our Southern California weather was in fine form that day! My apologies to our friends in the areas loaded with more snow than they know what to do with. ~SueBee

Evening at Segerstrom Theatre

I treated my oldest daughter, Angelika, to a stage show at the gorgeous Segerstrom Theatre in Costa Mesa last Thursday evening, for a performance of Dirty Dancing. That had always been one of her favorite movies. Before she arrived from work, I wandered around, using my iPhone to take the pictures in this gallery. The theatre is in […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Symmetry

Our entry into this week’s photo challenge theme of symmetry was taken this past Saturday when I took a spontaneous drive to Oak Glen in Riverside County. The cabin is part of the historical village at Riley’s Farm, a place visited by school children to learn about America’s past. ~SueBee

Rat Pack Tribute at Lido  (1)

Rat Pack Tribute at Lido

Last Friday after work, and after dinner at the Crab Cooker, I attended a concert at the Lido Theatre in Newport Beach. When it opened in 1938, the Lido was a movie theater. These days, it’s used for live concerts and occasional special showing movies. I arrived early and felt lucky to get a front row seat! On stage was a […]

Eat Here! The Crab Cooker

Our blog hasn’t featured a restaurant recommendation in ages, so it’s high time we do one again. This past Friday after work, and before the concert I would be attending, I treated myself to dinner at the Crab Cooker seafood restaurant in Newport Beach. My dad used to take our family there when I was a teenager, and I hadn’t been in […]
