Eat Here! San Antonio Winery

(11 photos) It seems a dining recommendation is long overdue. While downtown Los Angeles at the Brewery Artwalk this past weekend, Kat and I visited the San Antonio Winery, two streets over from the Brewery. Not only do they offer free wine tastings (I’m certain they’re the ONLY winery still offering that wonderful service), but […]

“Pink Reflection”

In this pic, I’m capturing the reflection of the pink oldie car, in the window of another oldie car. The people are sitting on the other side of the car with the pink car reflection. Yeah, just a tad bit of a brain-twister…but a fun picture to capture! I explored the City of Orange Old […]

Red Chair

Today’s Daily Foto Fix was taken this weekend at the Brewery during their wonderful Artwalk. The whimsical area featured is just outside the front door of an artist’s loft/studio. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

Brewery Artwalk, day 1

(28 photos) After much anticipation, the springtime Brewery Artwalk in Los Angeles started yesterday. I was joined by my son and two of his friends for a few hours. To start the day, we bought some delicious Korean BBQ tacos (yummmm!) from the Kogi food truck, beers and sangria from the Brewery, and somehow managed to carry […]

Reflecting on Photography Lesson

Today’s Foto Fix is of a photography lesson in progress, the teacher sharing important information on framing the photo, shot across the pond at Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge. I flipped the image to give a more interesting perspective. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

On Broadway, part 2 (21 photos)

The gallery included here continues the photography walking tour I did recently on Broadway in downtown Los Angeles, as started in part 1. I won’t write anything, rather, I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. I think they tell quite a story. Be sure to click on a photo to open the gallery. Thanks for joining […]

Faux real? (5 photos)

Gathering at the designated meeting point for a recent photography walking tour of Broadway in downtown Los Angeles, we waited for others to arrive. I started scanning the surrounding area, anxious to get started, and noticed window washers high up the side of a building.I was a bit perplexed they were working on a Saturday, so I switched […]

Rooftop Shoot

Scanning the downtown L.A. skyline while standing atop Bunker Hill last Saturday, near the upper landing of Angel’s Flight, the scene below caught my eye. Oh! People on a rooftop with two large white balloons. Interesting…must get a closer look…Ah-ha! It must be a photo shoot. I zoomed in, feeling somewhat like an intruder to an […]

Easter Egg Houses

Today’s Foto Fix was taken at the top of Santa Monica pier. The colors remind me of dyed Easter eggs. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

Pershing Square Hero

Walking in downtown L.A. last Saturday, I veered off Broadway to Hill, and into Pershing Square where I met this gentleman, a gentle man. I offered him the coffee I’d bought but decided I didn’t want because it’s impossible to walk and take pictures while holding a cup, and the pictures were more important to me. I […]

Taking a Stroll Around the Lake

Nothing like discovering new hiking trails, especially when they’re only 5 miles from home 🙂 Cam and I explored and took pictures at Laguna Lake in Fullerton. The length of the hike was just right, the weather couldn’t have been more perfect, and the scenery was very pretty. And for perfect timing, an Equestrian competition was […]

Smile for the Camera!

Descanso Gardens in the springtime, with camelia’s and azalia’s in full bloom, is a floral paparazzi paradise! I captured the closeups in this gallery during my visit a few weeks back, during the Cherry Blossom Festival. I’d never seen so many cameras pointed at flowers in my life. The flowers must have been exhausted by […]

At the Car Show

Today’s Foto Fix is of Kat at a vintage car show in the city of Orange yesterday. I dare not write anything remotely comparing her hair color to the car on the right, but when I saw her bending down to get a shot of the orange reflecting on the black, and then noticed her […]

On Broadway, part 1 (22 photos)

Met up with a street photography group yesterday morning in downtown Los Angeles. That was a first for me, as majority of my photography expeditions are solo, or occasionally with Kat. There must have been 20 people gathered at the prescribed meeting point, but I branched off with one other woman instead, and we headed out. For […]

The Flower Fields

I took my mom to The Flower Fields in Carlsbad, northern San Diego County, this past weekend. The weather was perfection: clear, sunny, warm. The colors were brilliant in the bright sunshine. Click on any photo to open the gallery. ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

Picked and Packed

Bunches of brilliant orange ranunculus, freshly clipped from the fields, wrapped in cellophane, and ready for the sales booth are the feature of today’s Foto Fix. This shot was captured at The Flower Fields in Carlsbad this past Saturday. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

It all Started in a Garage…

While visiting the Heritage Museum in Santa Ana, I overheard the tour guide talking about Walt Disney’s original garage studio, located in Garden Grove, being open for tours that day. As quite the Disney fan, I couldn’t resist! And talk about lucky timing…tours are only offered the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month! So, […]

Things I Saw April 5 2014 (14 unique photos)

I took my mom on a drive south along the coast yesterday, ending up in Carlsbad at The Flower Fields. The weather was fantastic, quintessential Southern California all the way! Below are a few sights from the day. Did I ever mention that I love the variety this part of the world has to offer?!! Here […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Threshold

Threshold of a wipeout, at Carlsbad Beach. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee) This week’s photo challenge asks: “A threshold is a point of entering; that point just before a new beginning — that split-second moment in time, full of anticipation.”
