Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth

For this week’s photo challenge, Earth, I chose four of my silly selfies taken with my iPhone. They feature me at various stops in California. I’m certain most of us agree, we’re each charged with protecting our Earth, regardless the ignorant people in political power. We must work all the harder to protect the beauty we’re […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: It IS Easy Being Green

(5 photos) This week WordPress Photo Challenge, It IS Easy Being Green, was an easy one for me. I’d taken a drive last weekend through some back canyons here in Southern California, and was surrounded by green hills. All the rain this season turned us into a lush paradise. So, in Southern California, it IS easy […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Atop

My interpretation of this week’s Photo Challenge of the word Atop is of an artist, holding the water color painting I ended up purchasing, as he stood atop Telegraph Hill in San Francisco. My son’s fiance, Loren, and I had walked a great distance up a steep hill, and climbed many steps to reach this […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wish

My entry into this week’s Photo Challenge topic of Wish was taken in downtown Los Angeles. My wish is the same millions of others wish for, that we’re not sorted and classified into categories. We’re one, simply human. ~SueBee

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Road Taken

This week’s photo challenge asks for something that surprised us on The Road Taken. I chose this photo I took with my iPhone while kayaking at Catalina Island, off Southern California’s coast.

Weekly Photo Challenge: A Good Match

For this week’s Photo Challenge, A Good Match, what better than a black leather jacket and a Harley? They’re from 1960 era, and owned by Elvis Presley, the King of Rock and Roll.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Against the Odds

I’m entering this week’s photo challenge, Against the Odds, with an action picture that was against all odds for my photography skill level. It’s a picture I took awhile back, but it stuck in mind as perfect for this challenge. I never seem to be ready at just the right moment, but this time I […]

I’m submitting a second entry into this week’s photo challenge on the topic of solitude, this time a more personal one. This photo was taken along the coast north of central California’s Santa Cruz.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitude

This week’s photo challenge asks us to give examples of solitude.

I joined Charlie on the bench after taking this picture… we had a nice chat about solitude. […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Graceful

This week’s Photo Challenge asks us to interpret Graceful, so I chose this spider web that I spotted at Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge. While I’m not keen on spiders, I think their webs are quite beautiful and generally very graceful. ~SueBee

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 […]

This week’s Photo Challenge asks us for a photo that includes a name. I chose a name recognized the world over, Mickey, of Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse fame. I took this picture while on a tour at the historical museum in Garden Grove, and it seems suitable for the challenge. ~SueBee

Weekly Photo Challenge: Path

This week’s WordPress photo challenge is Path… what it means to us, literally or figuratively. My photo was taken while walking the paths at Fiscalini Ranch Preserve in July 2015 during a short vacation in Cambria, on California’s gorgeous central coast. I traveled solo, as I do for many of my adventures, and spent lots of […]
