Telescope to the Sea

Today’s Foto Fix was taken yesterday along the Long Beach boardwalk. Pay a quarter (I didn’t check, maybe it’s a dollar by now), get a better view… of the container ships waiting to pull in and unload, sailboats enjoying a nice afternoon, little islands dressed up with palms hiding oil rigs pumping non-stop, people walking and […]

Focusing on Red in San Francisco

(14 photos) I joined my son, Andreas, and his partner (soon to be son-in-law!), Loren, on a trip to San Francisco, April, 2016. While my son was in a board meeting, Loren and I did a self-guided walking tour of San Francisco. We covered the city, one end to the other, logging numerous miles onto our […]

Art Along the Coast

I took a short vacation a few months back and explored the area along Southern California’s coast. Driving south from my hometown of Orange, there remain a few places that aren’t lined with housing tracts bumper to bumper. So refreshing! While keeping an eye out for art in public places as I drove along, I found […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Against the Odds

I’m entering this week’s photo challenge, Against the Odds, with an action picture that was against all odds for my photography skill level. It’s a picture I took awhile back, but it stuck in mind as perfect for this challenge. I never seem to be ready at just the right moment, but this time I […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Shadow

(2 photos) This week’s photo challenge asks us for an image of a shadow. Taking shadow pictures was a great hobby when Kat and I used to go out ‘n about, exploring Southern California. We took dozens of selfie shadow pictures over the years. These days we spend our free time planning her upcoming wedding! […]

Waving Grammy

Today’s Foto Fix is of Waving Grammy…. well, the chair that Waving Grammy should be sitting in actually. I saw this rather unusual scene while exploring the area in and around Cambria, up central California’s coast, a year or two ago. Since I’m Grammy to both Daisy Mae and Kansas, pups belonging to my kiddos […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitude, 2

I’m submitting a second entry into this week’s photo challenge on the topic of solitude, this time a more personal one. This photo was taken along the coast north of central California’s Santa Cruz. Kat and I had vacationed there a few years back, off season. We explored the forests, beaches, towns… such a spectacularly […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitude

This week’s photo challenge asks us to give examples of solitude. I chose to feature a photo I took of The Little Tramp, Charlie Chaplin, in a moment of solitude at the historic Bradbury Building in downtown Los Angeles. I joined Charlie on the bench after taking this picture… we had a nice chat about solitude. […]

Wishing You Peace

Today’s Foto Fix is a wish for peace and love to my fellow citizens of planet Earth. It’s been a rough few weeks since the elections in the USA and many of us are disgusted with events that have taken place, disgusted with those who are in the highest levels of our government, disgusted with those […]

Desert Palms

A visit to Palm Springs this past Saturday meant a bit of hiking at Andreas Canyon, on the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation. The day offered perfect weather, clear blue sky, snow-capped mountains surrounding the area. The creek running through the canyon was rushing, full with water from our recent bout of storms. All in all, […]

A Very Colorful House

While on a short vacation last fall, I drove down Southern California’s coast toward San Diego. Somewhere along the way, I saw a small community of mobile homes (manufactured homes) and drove through. This particular home caught my eye! ~SueBee

Weekly Photo Challenge: Graceful

This week’s Photo Challenge asks us to interpret Graceful, so I chose this spider web that I spotted at Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge. While I’m not keen on spiders, I think their webs are quite beautiful and generally very graceful. ~SueBee
