Moooo Baby

On a mini detour this past springtime, up a side road near the eastern L.A. County border with the OC, I whipped a u-turn to catch this idlyllic scene. There’s some rodeo-worthy steer in that field! With a sturdy fence offering protection, I clicked away. And, honestly, I felt the graffiti was equally photo-worthy, adding […]

Driving the Peninsula…

…Palos Verdes Peninsula, that is! I was out at South Coast Botanic Gardens yesterday, and left earlier than I’d intended (it was too HOT), deciding the Pacific Ocean would be cooler. So, as I departed the gardens, I turned left onto Crenshaw and then right onto Palos Verdes Drive North, which led me to Palos Verdes […]

A Garden For All Ages

Small children, grandchildren? I’m guessing they would love the children’s garden at South Coast Botanic Garden, on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, as much as you will! Nursery rhymes are displayed in a separate little garden area, near the entrance. Really adorable! For adults, it’s a great way to reminisce and spend some time out of touch […]

Blast to the Past

Randomly stopped by Old Town Orange with a friend to snap a few shots with the Nikon. I love the Vintage atmosphere of the town! We started off with a traditional hamburger and fries lunch at a 50’s style diner called Watson’s Drug Store, then explored the numerous antique shops and boutiques. Such a fun […]

A World of Fashion in Orange County

Dior…Chanel…Hermes…Prada…Louis Vuitton…the list is endless, the names are famous. How we dress plays a huge role in everyday life, especially if fashion and trend are crucial. Most everyone is familiar with the trendiness of Los Angeles, especially with Rodeo Drive in the neighborhood. Many people travel far and wide to visit this expensive street, lined […]

PS, I Love Your Art!

As I mentioned in my previous post, Kat and I visited the Palm Springs Art Museum during a recent trip to PS. It was a fabulous find, a really gorgeous art museum. Below is just a sampling of photos taken there.

PS, I Love You!

Palm Springs is fabulous in the summer, and honestly, I can’t wait to go back again… in the fall, winter, spring! It was just a tad HOT when Kat and I took a one night getaway to PS recently. We heard the temp reached 117 during our visit. I’m guessing, though, once you get past 100, […]

SoCo, trendy in The OC

So, while the westside of Los Angeles is famous most everywhere, if not the world, for just about everything — from fashionistas flocking, stars clamoring for attention, moguls moguling, interior designers a la extraordinaire shopping, eateries indulging, luxury automobiles parading, paparazzi hovering — the OC is also famous, and for far more than its Laguna […]

Fall Season at Descanso Gardens

The wonderful season of Fall is officially (and finally) here! Pumpkin Spice Lattes, scarves & boots, leaves changing colors, and of course, Harvest decorations! Descanso Gardens (located in La Canada Flintridge) is my all time favorite botanical garden, especially during this time of year when pumpkins and haystacks are scattered throughout…perfect place for some Fall-themed […]

Quirky Buildings

Trying to imagine the architect’s sense of humor when designing some of the odd buildings throughout our area makes me laugh. I visualize his or her facial expression while showing off the drafts to their customers. Is the customer smiling, choking, rolling on the floor laughing? Is it a joke? Promotion gag? Marketing ploy? How […]
