Yellow Footed White Bird

During my recent train trip to Oceanside, I took a walk on the pier and became quite smitten with the varioius birds. They each had such personality, and seemed so friendly. This yellow footed white bird I found especially adorable, and photographed his walk up and down the pier railing. It’s nice seeing the birds aren’t […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Roy G. Biv

Our entry into this week’s Photo Challenge, Roy G. Biv, was taken at Olvera Street in downtown Los Angeles. While I’d never before heard of the Roy G. Biv expression, the rainbow is what we’re presenting with these colorful costumes worn by lovely dancers. ~SueBee

Stepping Stones

Daily Foto Fix of stepping stones over a small creek was taken at Santiago Oaks Regional Park, here in Southern California. Note to our followers who may have noticed the diminished number of posts and photos recently… all due to “life gets in the way” syndrome. My elderly mom (97, nearing 98) has had some […]

Stairs or Path

This Daily Foto Fix was taken at Santiago Oaks Regional Park in Orange during a late afternoon hike recently, and as with several other photos I’ve taken, reminds me to my favorite poem by Robert Frost, The Road Not Taken. ~SueBee “…Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled […]

San Gabriel Mission District, 2

(20 photos in gallery) Continuing from my previous post featuring the San Gabriel Mission District, the photos in this gallery further explore the exterior of the Mission. It was evening and visiting hours were over, so I was only able to see the grounds through the gates. It was interesting enough that I look forward […]

Visual of Southern California’s Drought

The former water line clearly visible in this photo of Irvine Lake, a privately owned fishing and boating lake near my home in the city of Orange, certainly shows results of Southern California’s drought. While I didn’t live in the area when the lake was at normal water levels, it’s sure sad to see how low […]

Midweek Medicine

During stressful times, the remedy I often seek is a quick visit to the shore. When that’s not possible, gazing at a photo is the next best thing. This beautiful outlook onto the Pacific Ocean is from the end of Poppy Street in Corona Del Mar. Happy Wednesday, halfway to the weekend! ~SueBee

Magic!

Today’s Foto Fix features a bit of gravity-defying magic demonstrated by two young gals on the beach at Oceanside, as they took a break from an international soccer tournament. The gal dressed in pink impressed me with her very cool, controlled skill! I’m sure I never looked that calm while hula-hooping. 😉 ~SueBee

San Gabriel Mission District, 1

(16 photos in gallery) Intent on avoiding freeway traffic on the drive home to Orange from the San Gabriel Valley a few weeks ago, I realized my detour would take me near the Mission. I also realized, in spite of growing up in Southern California, I’d never actually been there. With a quick stop to check directions, I made […]
