Gao Pei Exhibit at Bowers Museum

What an exhibit! Whether you’re a fashion fan or not, the exhibit by Chinese designer Gao Pei currently running at the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana is FABULOUS! I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. Gao Pei’s creativity is just astounding. I highly recommend a visit to the Bowers. ~SueBee

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 […]

Cake!

(9 yummy photos) How about a slice of cake to start your day?!  These are photos I took while visiting the Orange County Fair recently. If the goodies taste as good as they look, they’re all winners in my book. ~SueBee

Ash Meadows

(16 photos) During my recent visit to Nevada, my friends toured us through Death Valley, on to the ghost town of Rhyolite, the town of Beatty, and then to Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge was absolutely fascinating. Crystal clear, turquoise water in the middle of the desert, with wee, tiny fish that flourish […]

Dowager Countess Quotes

(10  photos) Aside from the fabulous costumes on display at the Dressing Downton exibit at the Muzeo Museum in Anaheim, California, I was wildly entertained by printed cards featuring the Dowager Countess quotes. Brilliantly played by Dame Maggie Smith, the Dowager was a highlight of the Downton Abbey TV show. I gathered all my photos […]

Dressing Downton Exhibit at Muzeo

(5 photos) I visited the Downton Abbey costume exhibit at the Muzeo Museum in Anaheim this past Sunday with my son and his fiance. After watching the British TV series, and being taken away to another time, in part due to the costumes, I was very excited to see the exhibit. It didn’t disappoint, and I […]

Route 66 Exhibit

New Year’s Day I skipped the Rose Parade and the football game to visit the Gene Autry Museum of the American West in Griffith Park. Entry was free that particular day, but that wasn’t my motivation. Rather, I wanted to catch the Route 66 Exhibit before it moved on just a few days later. I remember driving […]

Orchid Show

I almost forgot I’d taken these shots. Those of us out and about all the time have an abundance of photos, and some of them tend to get overlooked! These beauties were on display at South Coast Botanic Garden in Rancho Palos Verdes. ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

Upstairs at The Last Bookstore

On the second floor of The Last Bookstore in downtown Los Angeles, is a labyrinth of rooms lined with bookshelves, which if followed along for a ways, will lead to the Fold Gallery and Curio Shop! It’s a fascinating place. The Fold Curio Shop, with a floor covered in copper pennies, to which you may contribute via a […]

George Hurrell, Photographer of the Stars

While visiting the Los Angeles Archives Bazaar at University of Southern California this past Saturday, I spotted an exhibit of George Hurrell’s movie star photos. They weren’t easy to photograph without getting glare and reflections galore, but I thought some of my blogging friends might find them interesting. I particularly liked reading about the Joan Crawford photo. […]

Posters from the Great War

This collection of posters from the first World War (WWI) was on display at the Huntington Library and Gardens when I was there visiting Stinky. Viewing the posters, one naturally reflects that here we are today, nearly a hundred years, and many “great” wars later, still killing each other. A pitiful statement of certain aspects of mankind. I personally […]

An Afternoon at the Bowers Museum

(26 Photos) Tech problems behind, new laptop purchased and quickly set up, our blog is back in action! Other than the inconvenience, and nearly going blind trying to view things on a miniature iPhone screen in the interim, I’m not too annoyed. My previous laptop, gifted to me by my son, lasted nearly seven years. That’s not bad in today’s absurd “toss it” […]

Nature Inspired Art

Bringing the outdoors in with art is a fabulous idea. The Sturt Haaga Gallery at Descanso Gardens hosted Portraits of the Gardens recently, featuring works inspired by the gardens. I visited Descanso just two weeks ago for the Cherry Blossom Festival, after touring Travel Town, and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Such talented artists exhibiting; I’m in awe! The artwork is inspiring, […]

Eat This Sushi?!

Sushi is incredibly popular in Southern California. I personally know few people who won’t try it, or don’t love it. But, after visiting the premier of Huell Howser California’s Gold exhibit at Chapman University in Orange yesterday, I have to admit the sushi pictured in the gallery below is some I won’t try! Because it’s made of dryer lint! […]

Money, Money, Money

I wandered through an exhibit at USC’s (University of Southern California) Doheny Library awhile back that fascinated me to no end! The exhibit was about the Federal Reserve, and very visually dealt with the destruction of money. All that money on display, piled up, and yet useless, having been shredded to tiny bits. Ah well… […]

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
