We treasure the interactions with other bloggers, memories of the fun places we’ve gone throughout Southern California, all the things we’ve seen, and having had a place to put the multitude of photos we’ve taken.

Tall Ships Festival, part 2

This second and final installment is from a week ago when I drove to the Los Angeles Harbor in San Pedro for the Tall Ships Festival (and to see the giant yellow rubber ducky). While I didn’t pay the entry fee to go onto any of the ships, I certainly had plenty to see from […]

Tall Ships Festival, part 1

Driving up the freeway to Los Angeles Harbor this past Friday, I was admittedly super excited at seeing a giant Yellow Rubber Ducky, and secondly, looking forward to the Tall Ships. I’d heard on the radio, actually, that the giant duck had been moved to another area of the Harbor from the original plan, because it was causing too much distraction from the […]

Stinky!

(Gallery, 14 photos) I’d planned on sharing some more L.A. Harbor shots from Friday, but instead, I simply HAVE to share pictures of Stinky, the famous Corpse Flower (Amorphophallus titanium), that I took today! As an occasional visitor, and now member, of the Huntington Library and Gardens in San Marino, I’d read about the excitement and anticipation surrounding their resident corpse […]

Rubber Ducky, You’re the One

Do you ever venture out on a photo expedition, only to have it turn out far better than you anticipated? That happened to me yesterday after work! I’d heard about the Tall Ships that had sailed into Los Angeles Harbor this past Wednesday, escorted by a giant rubber duck created by Dutch artist, Florentijn Hofman. A few […]

Sideways

Explored the El Dorado Nature Center with Cam. Since there are so many gorgeous lakes there, it was fun capturing reflection pics! I really like how this pic turned out, especially sideways! Can you tell where the lake is and where the sky is?! ~Kat (pic by Kat)

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 01

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. […]

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
