Christmas at South Coast Plaza

I had a few spare hours this evening while waiting to meet my oldest daughter after work, so I stopped by the huge, upscale shopping mall near work. South Coast Plaza is a beautiful place, as mall’s go. With designer shops and wonderful restaurants, a merry go round, and what seems like miles of walkways, it’s an experience […]

This scene was the backdrop to a fabulous holiday cocktail party yesterday afternoon, hosted by dear friends at their hillside Malibu home. Imagine having that view from your yard! I used my iPhone to capture this photo in panorama mode. I don’t generally use anything other than the Nikon for photos on our blog, but thought I’d […]

Cactus Apples

Cactus Apples

Today’s Foto Fix was taken outside the walls of San Juan Capistrano Mission. The apples on that prickly cactus can be eaten. In fact, I remember enjoying the cactus candy we used to buy on Olvera Street in downtown Los Angeles when I was young(er). Each time in recent years that I’ve visited Olvera Street, no cactus candy was to be […]

Los Angeles Zoo Holiday Lights

Celebrating Kat’s 25th Birthday this past Sunday was a blast! Kat’s older sister, Angelika, bought tickets for the L.A. Zoo Holiday Lights. The only animals to be seen were Santa’s reindeer, and from off in the distance, we saw an elephant. The rest must have been in bed, or not part of the holiday tour […]

Blue Trees and Reflection

Sunday, December 7th, was Kat’s 25th birthday! A group of us went to the Los Angeles Zoo for a special holiday nighttime lights event to celebrate, arranged by Kat’s older sister, Angelika. Today’s Foto Fix was taken there. More photos to follow, but I’ll say for now, it was a sight to see!! Oh, notice there’s a swan in the […]

Saturday on the Streets of L.A., part 2

Continuing on from part 1 of Kat’s and my recent visit to downtown Los Angeles, this gallery showcases some fabulous street art, most of which was shot while meandering through the Arts District. I’ll definitely be going back there soon… lots of trendy restaurants and boutiques to sample, explore! ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

Weekly Photo Challenge, Gone But Not Forgotten

Weekly Photo Challenge: Gone But Not Forgotten

This week’s Photo Challenge of Gone But Not Forgotten brings with it much reflection… many happy memories, and some sad. As I mentally wandered through my cache of photos, I recalled taking this shot two weeks ago while Kat and I wandered the streets downtown Los Angeles. It seems quite appropriate for the challenge, and gives the viewer multiple interpretations. […]

Colorful Bzzzzz

These shots were taken of a very colorful buzzing-type insect, which appears to be a mosquito, at the El Dorado Nature Center in Long Beach. I don’t own a macro yet (one day, hopefully), so these shots were taken with the regular lens. I cropped in to show details. Happy Friday to my fellow bloggers! Bzzzzzz ~SueBee […]

Orchid Show

I almost forgot I’d taken these shots. Those of us out and about all the time have an abundance of photos, and some of them tend to get overlooked! These beauties were on display at South Coast Botanic Garden in Rancho Palos Verdes. ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

Patch Job (4)

Patch Job

Kat and I visited downtown Los Angeles weekend before last. We got off the northbound 5 freeway at 7th Street, and headed across town via surface streets. We entered an industrial area with graffiti lined walls and fascinating old buildings. Noticing a photo shoot in progress, I pulled over and looked back. My eye was immediately captured by the patch work on the […]

Fold Gallery and Curio Shop at The Last Bookstore (4)

Upstairs at The Last Bookstore

On the second floor of The Last Bookstore in downtown Los Angeles, is a labyrinth of rooms lined with bookshelves, which if followed along for a ways, will lead to the Fold Gallery and Curio Shop! It’s a fascinating place. The Fold Curio Shop, with a floor covered in copper pennies, to which you may contribute via a […]

Camping Lake Perris

In the desert near Riverside, about an hour’s drive from our home in Orange, sits a very pretty lake with campground. It’s a State Recreation Area, and is well maintained and managed. Back in September, a group of us camped overnight, after a day of wine tasting in Temecula, followed by a day of boating on […]

The Last Bookstore

What an amazing discovery Kat and I made while wandering around downtown Los Angeles last weekend. We stumbled upon The Last Bookstore, located at 453 S. Spring Street, downtown Los Angeles! Sadly, how true that name is becoming in our cold, sterile world of electronic books and online ordering. Where will the bookstores and libraries go if people […]

Reflections at Angels Flight

Reflections at Angels Flight

I found this scene rather magical, the way light was reflecting off the mirrored buildings surrounding Angels Flight in downtown Los Angeles. Sadly, the little funicular is closed at the moment, but will hopefully be back up and running soon. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)
