Flash Mob Dance

When Kat and I took the train to downtown Los Angeles a few weeks ago, we were surprised by this flash mob dancing in Union Station, the main train depot. It was awesome! ~SueBee

Parasailing Oregon’s Columbia River Gorge

While in Portland last month, I was lucky to connect with an old friend from my Irish Dancing dressmaking days. She picked me up from my hotel, and took me on the most fabulous drive up the Columbia River Gorge. The weather was clear and sunny, just perfect for touring. Spectacular scenery was on every […]

Cabazon Dinosaurs

Returning from Palm Springs yesterday afternoon, at near 100 degree blistering temperature, I took a quick turn off the freeway at Cabazon to get something cold to drink. I’d never stopped at the touristy dinosaur place previously, although I’ve driven past dozens of times. I decided to snap a couple pictures while I was right […]

Brief Visit to the Garden

(11 photos in gallery) Toward the end of September, I was in the area of South Coast Botanic Garden on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, and stopped for a short walk. It was too hot to cover much of the garden, but I enjoyed watching an artist at work, finding numerous benches hidden throughout, and the […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Boundaries, 2

A second entry to this week’s Photo Challenge, Boundaries, was taken beneath downtown Los Angeles in the Metro station. The photo was¬†taken last week when Kat and I took the train to downtown, and then hopped on the subway to reach the Broad Museum area. That was my first time riding the subway in L.A. […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Boundaries

This week’s Photo Challenge, Boundaries, states “Boundaries impose limits on us, whether they‚Äôre social constructs or real, physical objects”. I chose this photo, taken at Portland Oregon’s Japanese Garden, as an example of countless boundaries faced by those wheelchair-bound individuals or others with physical disabilities. For additional examples of Boundaries, please click here.¬†~SueBee

Modern Art and People at MOCA

Kat and I spent this past Sunday together, out n’ about and exploring, just like old times! We took the train from Orange to Union Station in downtown Los Angeles, with hopes of getting¬†in the brand new Broad Museum. No luck for us in that regard, though. We hadn’t made advance entry reservations (it’s free […]

Portland’s Japanese Garden, part 1

While in Portland, Oregon, earlier this month, I visited the serene and beautiful Japanese Garden. The day was overcast and drizzly, perfect coming from a parched, over-baked Southern California. ¬†Per their website:¬†“There is meaning in every stone, reason in every plant and tree, and in every shadow a story.” Please enjoy the lush green gardens […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

For this week’s Photo Challenge theme of Change, I chose to feature changes I’ve been making to the rocks I collected during my early July vacation in Cambria. While there, I started painting the rocks, and have since found it to be a most therapeutic and relaxing hobby! My family has been dealing with an […]

Off the Coast at Palos Verdes

I drove my oldest daughter, Angelika, and her boyfriend to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) yesterday for their flight to Germany. Rather than sitting in rush hour traffic on the freeway for the drive home, I chose a little side trip. I visited one of my favorite gardens, South Coast Botanic Garden, followed by a […]

Building in the Sky

This photo, taken with my iPhone 6 during my recent visit to Portland, Oregon, was one of those lucky shots. A group of us were walking to dinner, I glanced up (naturally, always on the lookout), stopped walking, took a few shots, ran to catch up with the others. The reflection on the glass¬†facade, along […]

Portland Rose Garden, part 2

(14 photos in gallery) Please join me as I continue¬†my walking tour of the beautiful Portland (Oregon) International Test Rose Garden. We had a downpour of rain in Southern California last night, and I’m hoping if it continues, we might start to see some green here again, like in Portland!~SueBee

Rose Garden Carpet

Today’s Foto Fix features a rather unique scene I came across in the Portland (Oregon) Rose Garden last weekend. It was an overcast, drizzly day (wonderfully refreshing for someone coming out of a drought stricken area). People were wandering the muddy paths with umbrellas overhead. I haven’t thought to bring one, and wouldn’t know where […]

Portland Sights, part 1

These photos of downtown Portland, Oregon, were taken during my visit there this past weekend, as mentioned in my previous post. I created my own walking tour and ended up completely smitten by this very beautiful city. ~SueBee

Portland Words and Signs

(29 photos in gallery) I was fortunate this past weekend to join in the wedding celebration of very dear friends, in Portland, Oregon. I’d booked my flight months ago, prior to my health issues, and worried I’d not be able to attend. But, luckily, I made the trip. Not only were all of the wedding […]

We first had lunch at a favorite spot, (Riley’s Farm) Hawk’s Head Publick House, with its Revolutionary War era […]

‚ÄúTwenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn‚Äôt do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.‚ÄĚ ~ Mark Twain
