Closeups of Rose Parade Floats

(19 photos) Volunteers are scrambling these days to put the finishing touches on the gazillion flowers, seeds, bark, who-knows-what affixed to the floats for Pasadena’s annual Rose Parade on January 1st. I went to the after-parade viewing area a couple years ago.  This blog post features some pictures from my visit, albeit a very crowded […]

Christmas Day, 2017

Following three days of family, friends, and much feasting, I took an afternoon drive along Southern California’s beautiful coastline yesterday. I’ve been caring for my grandpup, Kansas, so I took him along. It’s not easy taking pictures with a rambunctious pup but I managed one of him in Newport’s Back Bay. We continued down the […]

Cathedral Canyon

(17 photos) While visiting friends, Aranka and George, in Pahrump, Nevada earlier this year, they toured me to some fascinating places. With Pahrump, being situated between Death Valley, California, and Las Vegas, Nevada, some might think there’s nothing to see. Wrong! The area is dotted with interesting, unusual sights, one of which I’m featuring in […]

Merry Christmas 2017

Here’s wishing a very Merry Christmas to my friends who celebrate and wonderful holidays to everyone. I used my iPhone to take this picture of the little Christmas scene I set up in my living room. Most of the items in the scene have been in my family for years. The Santa was from my […]

Squirrel’s Drinking Fountain

Posts from SueBee have been infrequent lately. I’ve been thoroughly consumed by tasks for my son and his fiance’s wedding… and, it’s this coming Saturday! Excitement is building, last minute prep is at a frenzied pace, all will be wonderful. Taking a wee break to post this picture (also zoomed in so you can see […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Serene

Corona del Mar in Southern California is the setting for my entry into the Weekly Photo Challenge: Serene. I took this photo just a week or two ago after a lovely drive down the coast after work one evening. That was a serene end to the day! ~SueBee

Weekly Photo Challenge: Transformation

Rocks on the beach make a transformation into art at my hands. Photos of a few of the many dozen I’ve painted are submitted as entry into this week’s Photo Challenge: Transformation. I first took up this hobby about 2 1/2 years ago, during my mini-vacation to Cambria, on California’s central coast. Rocks were in […]

Corona del Mar at Sunset with Boat

This picture was taken last Friday after work as I wandered along the shoreline at Corona del Mar. The setting sun catching on the tiny river of water running into the ocean caught my eye. With a bit of editing, I think the picture nearly looks like a painting. ~SueBee

The Cabin at Green Valley Lake

(19 photos) As we head into the Thanksgiving weekend, and then zoom on to the reds and greens of Christmas, I thought I’d pull together some pictures from the weekend I spent at GreenValley Lake with my son, his fiance, and their doggie. It’s been over a month since we were there in an adorable, […]

Rainbow Sherbet Sky

I took a little drive to one of my favorite beaches, Corona Del Mar, after work this evening. It was glorious, especially as the sun crept to the sea and color splashed into the sky. ~SueBee

Working on the Pier

This picture was taken on the Avila Beach Pier as I made my way up the coast to Solvang during my recent mini vacation. Back to work we go… Happy Monday. ~SueBee

Autumn in Oak Glen

(14 photos) My spontaneous drive to Oak Glen, near Yucaipa, last Sunday resulted in mingling with crowds of people, but as evidenced by these pictures, I found some quiet space, too. It’s so pretty there in the fall, and the various ranches have all sorts of festivals celebrating apple picking season. ~SueBee

Weekly Photo Challenge: Temporary

My entry into this week’s Word Press Photo Challenge on the word Temporary, was so temporary I nearly didn’t get the picture! I was north of Ventura, on my way to Solvang, and pulled off the 101 to take a side road right along the shore. Noticing really big birds on the overhead wire, I naturally […]

Help! It Fell Down and Can’t Get Back Up

Taking a partial line from an annoying (aren’t they all?) commercial here in the U.S. featuring a lady who fell on the floor but was saved due to the button she wore around her neck…. The signs of a good commercial is if it sticks in your head. Jingles from products sold on TV in […]

Pines at Oak Glen

After looking at old pictures I’d taken at Oak Glen, I suddenly got the urge for an in-person view. I tossed myself in my little pickup truck and headed onto the freeway. An hour or so later I was on the mountain, with countless others who obviously had the same urge. It seems craft fairs […]

It rained (sprinkled)!

We had a bit of rain here in Southern California this morning, sprinkles if you wish to be exact, but that, combined with cooler temps, makes me reminisce. I therefore dug into my older photos and came up with this rained-upon red rose. I took this picture in front of Hawk’s Head Tavern, Oak Glen, […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t 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.” ~ Mark Twain
