Taste of New Orleans, part 4, La Fayette Cemetery No. 1

(31 photos) Exploring the Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 in the New Orleans Garden District, I was enthralled by the history, the tombs, the names… it was quite unlike anything here in Southern California.  I found the cemetery a bit eerie at times, with the clouds casting odd shadows, a homeless man with a very sad […]

New Orleans Tiny House

Today’s tiny homes are all the rage… so trendy, everyone wants to live in one. Toss out everything you own, live in a house the size of a suitcase, and you’ll get a show on TV to boot. Here’s a vintage tiny house that caught my eye in New Orlean’s Garden District. Snug as a […]

Taste of New Orleans, part 1

I just returned from a short trip to New Orleans, aka The Big Easy, aka NOLA, my first time there. My son, Andreas, had a work conference, his new husband, Loren, couldn’t get off work, so I invited myself along. In spite of having just one solid day, plus a few extra hours the evening […]

Kayaking off Catalina Island

My son shared a news story a few days ago with this headline: “Pacific coast shark attacks on the rise and kayakers may be most at risk“.  He suggested I take up another hobby. While it’s easy to be fearful, I’ve thought it through and decided no, I’m not going to let the sharks win, […]

Downtown Los Angeles from the Westside

Photos taken a couple years ago of Los Angeles city center at the golden hour as the sun was sinking into the Pacific Ocean. I’ve been glancing through countless folders of pictures… thought I’d upload some oldies but goodies once in awhile. ~SueBee

SueBee Bought a Subaru!

Yesterday was a big day for me! I finally bought a new vehicle, a Subaru Crosstrek, after years of driving a little Toyota Tacoma pickup truck… that now has 227,000 miles on it. Being a sentimental sort, I’m a bit sad to part with my truck, but not having space to keep it or desire […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Weathered

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge asked us to interpret Weathered. For my entry, I’m including a few pictures I took downtown Los Angeles of the very weathered signage and exterior decor of the Palace Theatre. Per their website , “The Palace Theatre opened on June 26, 1911 as the Orpheum Theatre—the third home of Orpheum vaudeville in […]

Descanso Gardens in Early January, Part 1

(12 photos) I visited Descanso Gardens today, a beautiful spot near my home town of La Crescenta, about a dozen miles north of downtown Los Angeles. The weather couldn’t have been better, with visitors at a minimum. The plants looked tired and dusty but the camellias showed off their beauty regardless. I think they’re truly […]

2017 Washed Away

(4 photos) 2017 is behind us, inscribed in the history books. For me and my family, it was a fabulous, very busy year, with two weddings, one in May and the other just a few weeks ago. Health and happiness were generally in good order throughout the year. One sad note, though, was the passing […]

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 […]
