At Home

Since I haven’t been out and about too much here lately due to several projects I’ve been working on, I thought I’d share a few random pictures taken at home. The adorable black doggie squishing down the top of my couch is my grandpup, Kansas, belonging to my son and his husband. He was over […]

Newport Beach at Sunset

End of the weekend, I drove down to Newport Beach Peninsula yesterday evening for a quick stroll on the beach. Luckily people had started leaving and I found a parking spot. It had been a prime Southern California almost-summer day and crowds were out in force. I watched the sun slowly set and some really […]

Final Weekly Photo Challenge: All-Time Favorites

Sadly, this is the final Weekly Photo Challenge from WordPress, and with it, SueBee and Kat’s 130th entry. WordPress asked us to post a few of our All-Time Favorites. It would take me hours trying to determine which of thousands are my favorites, but I stumbled on the ones here. They were taken June 9, […]

Yellow Yellow Yellow

Yellow was the eye-popping color of the day yesterday when I visited (for the very first time) Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden in Claremont. It took just about half an hour to drive the less than thirty miles from my hometown of Orange. Claremont is an adorable little college town; the highly regarded Pomona Colleges […]

On This Date Three Years Ago

I spent a bit of time this evening digging through old photos and decided to post this one taken on May 10, 2015. It’s apparent I was enjoying a warm day at the beach. ~SueBee

Devil’s Hole

Continuing from my previous post featuring pictures of Ash Meadows and the prehistoric fish in the desert, this gallery shows pics I took at Devil’s Hole. Per Wikipedia, “Devils Hole is a geologic formation located within the Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge, in Nye County, Nevada, in the Southwestern United States. Devils Hole—a detached unit of Death Valley National Park—is […]

Ash Meadow

There are tiny, prehistoric fish in the hot, dry desert. How is that possible? Nature never ceases to amaze! While visiting my friends in Pahrump, Nevada, they took me to Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge. Just look at the color of that water! It’s a spectacular, gorgeous turquoise blue… crystal clear, and with tiny, blue […]

Coyote and French Fries

While traveling the lonely back roads of Southern California’s desert on my recent visit to Pahrump, Nevada, I noticed something crossing way up ahead. As I approached, I realized it was a coyote… looking rather scrawny. Having the remainder of a packet of french fries I’d bought in Baker, and feeling rather full, I decided […]

Is it a Mirage?

I spent the weekend in Pahrump, Nevada, visiting my friends, Aranka and George. Aranka and I have known each other since the early 1970’s. It’s been nice catching up since she and George moved from Northern California to Pahrump, much closer to my home. It’s “only” about 250 miles. While exploring the desert area between […]

Brewery Artwalk, Spring 2018

(28 photos) I made a brief stop at the Brewery Artwalk in downtown Los Angeles this past Sunday. I didn’t have too much time to wander the fascinating artist lofts and studios, but did catch a few. I must admit that while exploring the artistic creativity that’s in abundance there, the historical setting catches my […]

Doors of New Orleans, 1

(15 photos) Pulling from the stockpile of photos I took on my recent trip to New Orleans, this gallery features beautiful front doors in the Garden District. I found them intriguing, so very tall; I was fascinated by the gas lighting, they exuded such elegance.~SueBee

Weekly Photo Challenge: Story

This week WordPress asks us to tell a story with our pictures so I chose ones I took in downtown Los Angeles. This wonderfully friendly homeless man told me his story… of having been a fighter, a boxer. I must admit to cringing when he insisted on showing me his art form as he boxed […]

Rainy Day at Cal Poly’s Taste of the Farm Store

Yesterday, Kat, her husband, her girlfriend and I visited Kat’s univeristy alma mater, California Polytechnic University, aka Cal Poly Pomona. The Farm Store had an event going featuring fruit and vegetables grown on campus. The university is super cool, because being a polytechnic school, it features hands-on learning. The campus is on the site of […]

Abandoned in Rhyolite

The inside of an old building that had long since been abandoned in Rhyolite, a ghost town in Death Valley National Park. My friends, Aranka and George, toured me through there last year when I visited. It’s a fascinating place. ~SueBee

An Afternoon Drive

This past Saturday, I took a spontaneous drive to a little mountain town called Wrightwood. It’s on the back side of the Angeles Crest mountain range, near to highways 138 and 15. It’d been decades since I’d last been there. Traffic on the freeways en route was heavier than I’d hoped for, but being Southern […]
