Weekly Photo Challenge: Vibrant

I’m joining in this week’s Photo Challenge, Vibrant, with a very vibrant Olvera Street in downtown Los Angeles. The stalls selling colorful clothing, accessories, and yummy snacks are ever intriguing! ~SueBee Per the Olvera Street website: “Olvera Street, known as “the birthplace of Los Angeles,” is a Mexican Marketplace that recreates a romantic “Old Los […]

Kat at the Grand Canyon

This past November, Kat and her boyfriend, Cameron, visited the Grand Canyon. It sounds like they had a fabulous trip, and in viewing the pictures Kat sent me to upload for this post, it looks like a fabulous trip, as well! They drove by car from the city of Orange in Southern California to Williams, […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Optimistic 2

I found a second entry for the Weekly Photo Challenge, taken just over a year ago as I started hiking up the Lykken Trail in Palm Springs. At this point of the trail, I felt very optimistic I would keep up with the man and girl hiking ahead. ~SueBee

Weekly Photo Challenge: Optimistic

This week’s Photo Challenge asks us to provide examples of being Optimistic. I chose this photo of a family gathered in the chilly evening hours at Newport Beach Pier, as their fisherman winds his fishing line onto the spool. The family, and particularly the little girl, is surely optimistic that dinner would soon be caught. ~SueBee

Snow on the Mountains

I’m featuring guest photos today. These snowy pictures were taken a few days ago by my oldest daughter, Angelika, with her iPhone. She reports she took the pictures from inside her car while stopped at a traffic signal, hence they’re a tiny bit blurry. The snow coverage is sparser than after the first night of our big storm […]

Meditate

Today’s Foto Fix was taken at the Japanese Garden in Portland, Oregon, last year. I imagine many people are meditating and consoling themselves this morning on whatever money they spent while hoping to win the $1,600,000,000 Powerball prize drawing last night. As for myself, I’ll pay Kat the $2 for the single ticket she bought on my […]

Sunday Morning Drive Near Orange

I woke up at the crack of dawn this morning, and took a drive toward an area of remaining open space in the over-developed region known as Orange County, here in Southern California. It’s really quite astounding what an early morning drive can do for a person! With few people out and about, and minimal cars, the […]

Morning Ride

Howdy Pardner! How about you’re a cowboy/girl this morning, taking a trail ride to Andreas Canyon in the Palm Springs area? Sounds like a great idea to me. I took this picture a year ago, during a little get-away vacation. I did a lot of hiking and exploring, and had a fabulous time. ~SueBee

Pondering

The expression and pose in this picture describes my week. Starting on Monday with a repairman who nearly blew up my gas furnace, myself and him included, followed by these past four days without heat in shivering cold weather, combined with a torrential rainstorm that led to a leaking roof and water running down my bedroom wall. Yes, […]
