Left or Right

This seagull and I had quite the conversation during my recent visit to La Jolla near San Diego. He was insistent I tell him whether his left or right profile was more photogenic. Honestly, I couldn’t decide… my focus was on his adorable knobby knees and overlapping feet. 🙂 What do you think? ~SueBee

Point Loma Lighthouse

This gallery features a little tour of the Point Loma Lighthouse on the tip of the peninsula at San Diego. I imagine it was a lonely place way back in the day, but certainly not these days. It was quite the tourist hot spot while I was there. ~SueBee

The Golden Hour at La Jolla

The sun moving closer to the horizon at day’s end lends the most gorgeous lighting that photographers dub the Golden Hour. It was a glorious one at La Jolla during my visit last Friday. ~SueBee

(12 Photos) When Kat and I arrived at Catalina Island this past Friday, our first order of business was breakfast. Directly thereafter, we caught the city bus for a ride up the hill to the Wrigley Memorial Gardens and Mausoleum. We were pleasantly surprised to discover a birthday freebie, my admission was comped. We wandered […]

Kayaking at Catalina Island

(14 photos) For the past four years I’ve made a tradition of visiting Southern California’s Catalina Island on my birthday. The reason behind this is a special deal from Catalina Express, one of the boat companies running trips between the mainland and the island, offering free passage to folks on their birthday when accompanied by […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual 2

(5 photos) I have a second entry into this week’s Photo Challenge of something Unusual. While visiting Southern California’s seaside town of Carlsbad with my mom, I was fascinated by this guy paddling a surfboard with a fishing pole on his back and what looked like regular clothing. As he paddled into shore and got […]

Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve

(8 photos) The pictures in this gallery were taken at the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve , in Huntington Beach, during a recent drive up Pacific Coast Highway from Newport Beach to Seal Beach, where I stopped for dinner.

(2 photos) Yesterday, March 26 2017, my three kids, their partners and I met for a drink at a favorite place in Corona Del Mar to mark the one year anniversary since my mom, their grandma, passed away at the age of 98 (and a half). My mom was a special woman, we were all […]

Turquoise Rowboat

Today’s Foto Fix was taken at Dana Point Harbor in Southern California, using my iPhone. The boat, as well as the matching posts, caught my eye as they’re painted in my favorite color. I took myself on a really nice Sunday afternoon drive, that included an inland canyon I’d never visited previously, followed by the harbor. […]

Storm Remnants in Long Beach

(9 photos) “Watch your step” were the key words when wandering along the sand at Long Beach after one of our recent storms. I’m not sure where all the bamboo came from, but it was obvious where all the trash did…. humans. With all the work groups have done trying educating people to properly dispose of […]

Orange on the Sand

This orange at the water’s edge was spotted as I walked along at Long Beach a week or two ago. An artist’s still-life arrangement in the sand, and someone’s snack gone missing. ~SueBee
