Bratwurst, Sausage, “Hot” Dog?

Can’t quite put my finger on the reason, but this scene had me laughing out loud as I took the picture! I lived enough years in northern Germany, and surely ate my share of Currywurst, but the combination of “German Gourmet Sausages” food cart, cotton candy, and dressed-up Chihuaua on a leash doesn’t logically fit […]

Ouch and Other Desert Plants

After walking with White Crane the other day, I wandered off to the desert area of the Fullerton Arboretum, always a favorite spot. Remembering when Kat discovered a Hidden Heart, I was pleased with myself for spotting the heart shaped Ouch cactus in this photo: The plant below reminded me of Medusa’s hair, but thankfully […]

It’s Like Frozen Cotton Candy!

Discovered a new shaved ice shop in Brea called Snowland! Absolutely incredible! The second you take a bite, the ice melts in your mouth like frozen cotton candy…unlike any shaved ice I’ve ever had! With a multitude of flavors, my favorites so far are Mango and Lychee. There are a variety of toppings you can […]

“Pond Painting?”

Playing with aperture settings oftentimes brings lovely results. This shot results from my hike around the upper pond on the mountain at Oak Glen this past Sunday. It’s the kind of place that draws me back like a magnet. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

“Along Santa Monica Boulevard”

Wall art is fascinating, time consuming to photograph, and most often, frustrating… frustrating because it’s nearly impossible photographing. Drive by, see it, circle the block, circle the block, honk, honk, circle the block, park, roll down window, wait for cars to pass, wait, wait, or search for a parking spot, search, search~ …. you get […]

Monkeying Around!

Took a spontaneous trip to the Santa Ana Zoo today. According to their website, as a requirement of the zoo’s founder Joseph Prentice, there are 50 monkeys on the grounds at all time! Unfortunately, I was unable to capture pictures of ALL 50, but I did get a few shots 🙂 Monkeys have always been […]

Lights, Lights, Lights!

This past weekend was the last weekend of the Festival of Lights at the Mission Inn. Having never been to the Mission Inn during the Holidays before, and having heard how incredible the lights are, I really hoped I would get there this year….and I did! Cam and I took the trip to Riverside last […]

“On a Clear Day You Can See Forever”

In Southern California today, that expression was definitely true. It was far too beautiful to stay inside, so I hopped in the truck and ended up at the mountain town of Oak Glen. Now past apple season, the crowds were gone, the beauty remained. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

White Crane’s Garden Walk

After first checking his reflection in the mirror, White Crane set off on a little afternoon constitutional through the gardens. Intent on avoiding a group of children approaching, he took flight for a moment. Upon landing near the daffodils he glanced over and beckoned to me…. at least I’m certain that was his intent. I’m […]

Pasadena’s Beautiful “Chia”

Chia, known today as the Pacific Asia Museum, was founder Grace Nicholson’s nickname for the Pasadena building that her ideas and research developed in 1924. The building was brought to life by a well-known local architectural firm, and became a center for the arts. Chia is a word with distinct meaning in two cultures closely […]

Rose Floats!

Pasadena was in the spotlight yesterday, and didn’t fail to impress. The annual Rose Parade was offered up under clear blue skies and sunshine. Since I don’t have much patience for sitting still through a parade, I chose instead to view the floats directly post-parade. However, I’d have been better off arriving later in the afternoon. […]
