Weekly Photo Challenge: Motion

The motion of time passing eerily silent and unseen on its own. captivated by its own energy its unfulfilled lust for speed. the wretched taskmaster never content to be, to just be unwilling to stop and sit a spell. no. we don’t gain even one moment’s pause… we ask where the time went the days, months, years. yet […]

Whimsical Garden Scene

I’m fascinated by vintage things, historical spots, places that were and take every chance to seek out whenever possible. The pictures in this gallery, of […]

Doheny, Greystone Mansion & Gardens is a Beverly Hills and Los Angeles treasure, recognized since 1976 on the National Register of Historic Places. […]

Touring the Wetlands, part 2

Continuing my tour of the Bolsa Chica Wetlands in Huntington Beach, this set of photos is less about the great variety of birds there, and more about other things that caught my eye. ~SueBee

Pier at Dusk

Today’s Foto Fix was taken on the Seal Beach Pier at dusk. I like the style of the lamps, color of the sky, and the sun reflecting on the windows of the oil platform to the left and ship to the right. ~SueBee

Weekly Photo Challenge: Afloat

This week’s Photo Challenge, Afloat, brought several images to mind, but I settled on this one. It’s a fisherman’s rag, left secured to the pier at Seal Beach, afloat on the evening’s brisk wind. ~SueBee

Into the Surf

The sky grows dark, the brisk breeze sharp, bikini clad for summer, friends close together, to conquer the surf, on their own turf. ~SueBeePhoto taken from the Seal Beach pier this past Sunday.

Long Lens Day

Bolsa Chica Wetlands in Huntington Beach seemed as crowded with long lenses as birds Sunday, as this gallery can attest! It was a great day to be outdoors, and apparently, bird watching! ~SueBee

Gallery 2 Added!

The trouble with being ‘out and about’ taking photos so often, is that general blog maintenance lags. I therefore dedicated some time this evening to building another gallery page, furthering our collection of Daily Foto Fix pictures. The page is not complete, my eyes grew tired and I gave up, but I feel quite accomplished regardless! If interested, you can now visit Gallery 2, as well […]
