Any bits left for me?

Today’s Foto Fix was taken from the Huntington Beach Pier and features a curious gull hoping for a bite to eat from a discarded plastic cup. Or perhaps, Mr Gull is being a good citizen and will take that plastic cup to the nearest trash can. ~SueBee

Tour during wedding set-up, Heritage Square

(18 photos in gallery) I took a long-overdue tour recently of a place that’s fascinated me for years, the Heritage Square Museum near downtown Los Angeles.

WorkPress Photo Challenge this week is Look Up so I’ve entered with “look, there’s people up there!” This is a close up view of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge as I looked up and tried to figure out how those people got up there… finding no stairs and no elevator door, it was very perplexing!
