Pasadena Pops at the Arboretum

I look forward to the Pasadena Pops summer concert series at the Los Angeles County Arboretum in Arcadia each year. Last evening’s performance featured four of Broadway’s Leading Ladies, Susan Egan, Valerie Perri, Christina Saffran, Lisa Vroman, as well as David Burnham, also of Broadway fame. It was fabulous! I listed the songs below the […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast (2)

I couldn’t resist another entry into this intriguing theme. From my perspective, this photo taken on a main highway in Carlsbad, California, is a study in contrast if ever there was one… the old days versus nowadays. Traversing our country on foot, leading a mule, zipping across town in a speedy motor vehicle. Old-time, modern-time. Viewing […]

Showtime at The Muck

(16 photos) Kat and I spent a recent Sunday afternoon at The Muckenthaler Cultural Center, The Muck, in Fullerton, enjoying a classic car show and live band. Janet Klein and Her Parlor Boys, who play Jazz / Pre-war / Vaudeville style music, were absolutely irresistible! The audience was enthralled, utterly captivated by the music and performance. I’m […]

A Touch of Yellow

Do you ever find certain colors seem to pop, and you start noticing everywhere? Bright yellow was my pop color recently. Not that it’s an easily ignored color, but I found it interesting that I began noticing yellow as I made my way around Los Angeles. Just small touches of bright yellow or neon yellow spread about. This gallery […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Between

A whispered secret between friends is our entry into this week’s photo challenge. I took this picture at The Muckenthaler, a cultural center in Fullerton, California, during a concert and classic car show a few weeks ago. The ladies, members of the Red Hat Society, were thoroughly enjoying the concert, between shared moments. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee) More between photos here

Temecula or Bust!

(3 photo galleries) My oldest daughter, Angelika, invited me along on a one-night getaway to the town of Temecula, in southwestern Riverside county, recently. The wineries surrounding Temecula were the true destination! Her boyfriend, along with his mom and uncle visiting from Germany, would be joining, as well. I arrived ahead of them, as it’s just […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Extra, Extra

While I generally prefer not re-posting photos already on our site, this photo fit the theme so well, I simply had to use it! It’s from a September, 2013 Foto Fix called Seagull Bomb. I had been standing on the Santa Monica Pier, taking pictures of surfers, and didn’t realize this seagull had photo-bombed my shot […]

Any Other Name

Today’s Foto Fix brought to mind William Shakespeare’s words in Romeo and Juliet: “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet”. This particular rose, one of many gorgeous blooms, was captured at Sherman Library and Gardens in Corona del Mar recently. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

Filming Car Scene

It’s not uncommon to see film crews around Southern California, but it’s always extra fun to see them in action! The photos in this gallery were taken in downtown Los Angeles recently. I’m always amazed at the large amount of equipment and people required for shooting an individual scene. And, who knows if all that work […]

Concert Hall as Sculpture

Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles is today’s Foto Fix subject. Taken in the late afternoon with my camera set on dark tones, this amazing display of architecture took on an even more splendid appearance. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee) To our followers: sorry to be absent for the past days. Kat and I moved again, after just three […]

Velcro Man

No, this photo wasn’t rotated. Yes, he’s climbing a rock wall upside down. No, I don’t know how he’s hanging there! Although just after this picture was taken, gravity did finally exert its force beyond this man’s strength and skill. I’m dedicating this photo to Kat who’s just recently taken up this very industrious hobby, […]

Dried Flowers

  Took this picture at Stanley Ranch in Garden Grove prior to a tour of the Walt Disney Garage Studio. While waiting for the tour to start, I explored and snapped several pictures in a historic barn house. I loved these dried flowers they had hanging from the ceiling. The bright colors with the wood […]

Photography at the San Diego Zoo

My boyfriend Cam and I visited the San Diego Zoo again recently, and ended up buying an annual membership! What’s awesome about the membership, is we’re given access to both the Zoo and the Safari Park in Escondido anytime, all year round! This time around, we visited specifically to see the Koalas and Pandas that […]

This week’s challenge is fun! Being out ‘n about so often, we’ve captured numerous split second stories, resulting in more than one entry to the challenge. This particular photo, in spite of shooting into the sun and having the photo really washed out, makes me laugh. The guy’s on the right are in rapt attention to […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Split Second Story

Our entry into this week’s challenge, Split Second Story, shows the moment before a new street sign was lifted and bolted into place, making a left or U-turn illegal at 6th Street in downtown Los Angeles. A person driving the area regularly may be caught unaware by this new sign posting, particularly if said person missed […]
