Desert Shack

Today’s Foto Fix was taken near the ghost town of Rhyolite, Nevada. I try to imagine who built this shack, who spent time within its walls, what dreams they had…  ~SueBee Four Walls Four walls are all I need to roll out my bed at night, hold off the critters from my grub store my […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Ambience

My interpretation of this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge on the word Ambience has purposely veered off norm due to upcoming events in America this Friday, January 20, bringing fear, dismay, and anxiety. I took this photo while walking in downtown Los Angeles, the contrast a stark reminder of my fortune in life. ~SueBee Lonely Man Shall […]

Over and Beyond

SueBee and Kat reboot

With the far too much work that changing blog identity entails, I’ve decided to reboot SueBee and Kat and just change the tagline. SueBee and Kat, SueBee’s photography, handcrafts, and musings of the golden years. I’ll complete this post with two photos I took at Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge, and a haiku as accompaniment. ~SueBee […]

Into the Surf

The sky grows dark, the brisk breeze sharp, bikini clad for summer, friends close together, to conquer the surf, on their own turf. ~SueBeePhoto taken from the Seal Beach pier this past Sunday.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Minimalist 2

Extension of a dead limb… fear? quasi wood, delicate, wings clear. Flirting with a subtle chameleon effect, a simplistic charlatan’s project. Light touch on a brittle refuge, dare we say wily subterfuge? Respite from another’s feast, momentary serenity at the least, fearing winged creatures on high possessing of a sharp, focused eye. ~SueBee (photo by Kat) Our second entry into the Weekly Photo […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Endurance

unyielding stone beneath worn down bone protective cape, a ragged drape shoulders stooped and sagging reflective eyes, wherein memory lies of many tries, of failed ties self-made walls, treasured halls the daily shift, that load to lift cannot stay, don’t care to pray must get through another day endurance, her insurance. This week’s Photo Challenge theme is Endurance, which I’ve interpreted as the plight of the […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Relic

My dear, sweet mom. Born September 20, 1917, middle child with seven brothers bookending her. Gazing through the window, gazing through time. Lost in her memories. Where have the years gone? The typewriter. So familiar… Just like the one she used at her job in downtown Los Angeles. She rode the streetcar to get there. And wonders where is the […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Twist

Our entry into this week’s Photo Challenge was taken at the Brewery Artwalk in Los Angeles just a few weeks ago, and is accompanied by a poem: Love’s twist Young woman at dawn, sunshine peeking at the corner, awakening. hazy, lazy. Stretching off slumber, gradually opening her eyes…. Gazing up, seeing her lover, distinctive, twisted locks, […]

Upswept Braids

Chic, with her upswept braids, print ribbons complimenting the painting on the wall. Its eyes upon her, captivated by her. Furtive glances from the doorway… nearly go unnoticed, art encapsulated. A fleeting moment now dedicated, and elegantly punctuated by the diamond on her ear. ~SueBee Photo captured in a split-second as I was exiting an artist loft at the […]

Pershing Square Hero

Walking in downtown L.A. last Saturday, I veered off Broadway to Hill, and into Pershing Square where I met this gentleman, a gentle man. I offered him the coffee I’d bought but decided I didn’t want because it’s impossible to walk and take pictures while holding a cup, and the pictures were more important to me. I […]

Piano Kiss Hug

XO set to music, such a common theme. Reflections in the window things aren’t what they seem. This Foto Fix was taken at a store window at SoCo in Costa Mesa. Reflections intrigue me. While shadows seem firmly anchored, reflections are much more whimsical… this one triggering a childhood memory of our family home, an […]

Into the Mist

Tire tracks scribbled upon the beach, softly fading to golden mist. Autographs penned for the seagulls, and sealed with the ocean’s kiss. Today’s Foto Fix was taken at Crystal Cove State Park in southern Orange County. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)
