Dia de los Muertos in Los Angeles, part 1

(18 photos) I had a very spontaneous visit to Los Angeles yesterday, after dropping my son off there. When he asked if I could do him this favor, naturally my mind went directly to my trusty sidekick, the Nikon! So, camera in hand, I ended up exploring from one end of the city to the other. […]

Portland Sights, part 2

(14 photos in gallery) I’m continuing from my previous post showcasing sights of Portland, Oregon, as I toured the city earlier this month. The most memorable shot on this particular day is the one below, of the older couple sitting on chairs placed right next to the street. As I was walking along, taking pictures, […]

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 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 […]

Greystone Mansion, Beverly Hills

I wandered around the grounds of the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills with my son a few months back. What a beautiful place! Per their website: “Completed in 1928 by oil tycoon Edward L. Doheny, Greystone Mansion & Gardens is a Beverly Hills and Los Angeles treasure, recognized since 1976 on the National Register of Historic Places. […]

Near Carthay Square, 2

Driving around the city is always interesting, with so much to see. The shots in this gallery were taken on the Westside of Los Angeles, near the Carthay Square area. ~SueBee

Los Angeles Arts District

Just a touch of the Arts District from when I drove through recently on my way further into downtown Los Angeles. It’s a fascinating part of the city. I need to return when I have more time to wander around. ~SueBee

Near Olvera Street

I was downtown Los Angeles this past weekend for the swearing-in ceremony of California’s new Controller, Betty Yee, and snapped these photos in the area of Olvera Street, the oldest street in Los Angeles. ~SueBee

Near Carthay Square, 1

If you want to check out city sights, avoid the usual throng of cars, I suggest you get out early on a Sunday morning. I spent the weekend visiting my son on the west side of Los Angeles; he lives in the Carthay Square area, near Fairfax and Olympic. I wanted to get a photo of […]

Saturday on the Streets of L.A., part 2

Continuing on from part 1 of Kat’s and my recent visit to downtown Los Angeles, this gallery showcases some fabulous street art, most of which was shot while meandering through the Arts District. I’ll definitely be going back there soon… lots of trendy restaurants and boutiques to sample, explore! ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

Patch Job

Kat and I visited downtown Los Angeles weekend before last. We got off the northbound 5 freeway at 7th Street, and headed across town via surface streets. We entered an industrial area with graffiti lined walls and fascinating old buildings. Noticing a photo shoot in progress, I pulled over and looked back. My eye was immediately captured by the patch work on the […]

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 […]

The Last Bookstore

What an amazing discovery Kat and I made while wandering around downtown Los Angeles last weekend. We stumbled upon The Last Bookstore, located at 453 S. Spring Street, downtown Los Angeles! Sadly, how true that name is becoming in our cold, sterile world of electronic books and online ordering. Where will the bookstores and libraries go if people […]

Saturday on the Streets of L.A., part 1

Kat and I were lucky to grab some time to explore together this past Saturday. Our schedules don’t match up that often anymore, so this was particularly special time. We headed to downtown Los Angeles, planning on first having breakfast at Grand Central Market and then visiting a museum or two. We ended up finding so much to see […]

Cross Town Rivalry

Today’s a big day for Los Angeles college football fans… it’s the annual cross town rivalry game between (USC) University of Southern California Trojans and the (UCLA) University of California at Los Angeles Bruins. I’d never paid much attention to college football until my son attended USC for his undergraduate studies (2002-06). He was lucky to be enrolled […]

Other Side of the Tracks

This gallery of pictures was taken, quite literally, on the other side of the tracks. I visited the Art Walk at the Brewery, next to the train tracks, in downtown Los Angeles a month or so ago. Each visit there, I enjoy wandering the somewhat decrepit, rat’s-maze-like hallways as much as viewing works of the various artists who […]

I Shrank San Diego

Having a hotel room on the 16th floor, along with the miniature setting on my Nikon d5100, assisted in my shrinking of San Diego! 🙂 ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

Continuing from yesterday’s post, the photos in this gallery were taken by Kat, as I drove, and we explored parts of West Los Angeles. ~SueBee (photos by Kat)
