At Riley’s Farm

Oak Glen is my point of refuge from office life and the concrete jungle, and is my go-to place when I need to see green, breathe in mountain air, pretend I live in the country. I took these photos at Riley’s Farm when Kat and I went berry pickin’ last weekend. While it’s common knowledge that farming […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

Our entry may require glasses or magnifier to see the helicopter silhouette in the clouds! This shot was taken from the rooftop of The Grove shopping center parking garage, in West Los Angeles. I used the sunset setting on my Nikon 5100, which added the red color, although the sunset was spectacular to begin with. […]

My brother is a musician (but not as his profession). He writes […]

Berry Pickin’

Kat and I took a spontaneous drive up the mountainside to Oak Glen this past Sunday, for berry pickin’! What a grand idea that was, and just an hour’s drive from home. We spotted wild berries along our favorite nature trail, but ended up at Snow Line Orchard  for the actual picking. The charge was $13 for three empty plastic baskets, row upon […]

Fun Times at the County Fair

This is the final installment of photos from my visit to the Orange County Fair this past week. I didn’t take very many pics in this section of the fairgrounds, having overdosed on Food and People Watching, but here are a few so you can see the atmosphere. A co-worker of mine said she can’t take her kids […]

People Watching at the County Fair

Yesterday after work was my turn to visit the Orange County Fair, my first time at this particular county fair. Lined up with countless other cars, and directed to parking in what I’m sure was the next county, I enjoyed a pleasant hike before arriving at the ticket booth. I still had some time to kill before my […]

It’s been several years since I’ve been to the summer fair, so I was really excited to find out from a friend that she’d received free tickets to go this year! The Orange County fair, with all the delicious fried food, colorful rides and carnival games, and exhibits, was so much fun! My boyfriend Cam […]

Focusing Through a Cage…

…or, Learn Something New Each Day… or, Did He Teach That in Class? Those are a selection of titles appropriate for this article. I visited a small, local zoo recently, the Santa Ana Zoo; my first ever visit there. Kat had been earlier this year and shared some of her shots in an article titled Monkeying Around. While the zoo has a […]

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
