Weekly Photo Challenge: Close Up

Providing a colorful entry to this Weekly Photo Challenge: Close Up, is a brilliant red poison oak (don’t touch!), joined by some sort of moss and lichen that covered many of the trees at Fiscalini Ranch Preserve in Cambria. I enjoyed walking the forest trail on my way to the ocean side bluffs during my recent […]

Birthday Trip to Catalina

I spent a most delightful day at the little town of Avalon on Catalina Island this past Tuesday, July 21st. It was my birthday, and I therefore enjoyed the benefit of free round-trip passage on the Catalina Express out of Long Beach, California. Kat joined me on the 8:30am trip, with my oldest daughter, Angelika, […]

A Cambria State of Mind, part 1

(8 photos in gallery) As I mentioned in a post a few days ago, I was up the coast in the quaint village of Cambria, and surrounding area, for a very much needed vacation last week. I took many pictures (understatement). I’ve decided rather than trying to share them in order or by category, I’m […]

Sunset at Cambria

During my (longest in ages!) 4 day vacation at Cambria on California’s central coast, I took nearly 1000 pictures. My fellow photographers can relate, I’m sure. The natural beauty of the area was staggering, hence the continual click click click of my camera. I enjoyed my solo get-away, without internet or television, with much time […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Door, 2

A second entry to Weekly Photo Challenge: Door, is the Door to Eternal Happiness (as per a local resident’s explanation). I took this picture while hiking this week near Fiscalini Ranch Preserve in Cambria, on California’s central coast, just a bit outside of my usual Southern California. I realize another week has gone by and […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Door, 1

For this Weekly Photo Challenge, Door, I chose a favorite door photo, taken at the Brewery in Downtown Los Angeles. The doors that lead to nowhere but a drop off two and three flights down. Even knowing this building had been a beer brewery back in the day (the building now houses artist lofts and […]

The grounds of the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens in San Marino in Southern California are extensive, with many different garden areas, from desert plants to Chinese to Japanese to lush rain forest and roses.  The views I’m sharing in post #1 feature some of the vast lawn areas, the lushness of the shaded sections, […]

Yellow Footed White Bird

During my recent train trip to Oceanside, I took a walk on the pier and became quite smitten with the varioius birds. They each had such personality, and seemed so friendly. This yellow footed white bird I found especially adorable, and photographed his walk up and down the pier railing. It’s nice seeing the birds aren’t […]

Stepping Stones

Daily Foto Fix of stepping stones over a small creek was taken at Santiago Oaks Regional Park, here in Southern California. Note to our followers who may have noticed the diminished number of posts and photos recently… all due to “life gets in the way” syndrome. My elderly mom (97, nearing 98) has had some […]
