Unexpected Pose

How often does it happen to those of us photographers, that we snap a picture of a scene and later find a surprise when we put it up on the computer? I took the first shot looking down the beach at Encinitas two weeks ago, and then as it was enlarged on my monitor at home, […]

Brrrr-isk Walk on the Pier

Photos taken using my iPhone while on a very chilly, spontaneous visit to the Seal Beach Pier a few evenings ago. I was pleasantly surprised seeing the sand art, impressed by the precision required to create it! ~SueBee

Moonscape

I took the original photo in Long Beach this past Sunday, and edited it three ways just for fun. The original was very pale and overexposed, partly due to shooting into the sun, and more likely, from using the wrong setting. But, something about the original shot reminded me of a science fiction or outer space scene, particularly due to the […]

Teens lovin’ that summer is a comin’… Rejoicing in the sunset of school work, the sunrise of carefree beach days, joy spreading as colors in the sky. ~SueBee Living in a land of nearly eternal summer, Southern California, I took a twist on this week’s theme and jumped outside of myself to include the Summer Lovin’ exuberance of these […]

My entry for this week’s photo challenge is that of three containers, one within the next.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Split Second Story, 2

This week’s challenge is fun! Being out ‘n about so often, we’ve captured numerous split second stories, resulting in more than one entry to the challenge. This particular photo, in spite of shooting into the sun and having the photo really washed out, makes me laugh. The guy’s on the right are in rapt attention to […]

By the Tidepools

Today’s Foto Fix was taken Saturday, looking up the beach at one of my favorite spots in Corona del Mar. I first “discovered” this little gem in the mid 1970’s while living on the north side of Los Angeles, near Glendale, and working for a company that had a branch I visited nearby. It was quite […]

Cooling off at Balboa Island

I made the traffic-free 25 minute drive to Balboa Island late yesterday afternoon; the beach was calling me! I parked at a shopping center on Bayside Drive at Jamboree, and walked over the bridge onto the island. I always find that’s the best solution to the crowds and lack of parking spots on the island […]

Things I Saw April 5 2014 (14 unique photos)

I took my mom on a drive south along the coast yesterday, ending up in Carlsbad at The Flower Fields. The weather was fantastic, quintessential Southern California all the way! Below are a few sights from the day. Did I ever mention that I love the variety this part of the world has to offer?!! Here […]

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)

Beachside Photography Class

In San Diego, looking for an opportunity to hike, visit the beach, and maybe snap some gorgeous landscape/outdoor pics? Torrey Pines is the place to explore! Took an absolutely wonderful outdoor photography class (through the sporting good store REI) with Cam and his family a little while back. We met at the beach, and hiked […]

Beach City, Wake Up!

The area near the pier is dressed in its finest as the early morning sun breaks through the mist. In the gallery below are a few more photos from my visit to Santa Monica Beach this past Sunday. The photo of Camera Obscura now has me curious, and prompts a return visit, as it was closed for refurbishing. The […]

Beach, Wake Up!

There’s a different vibe at the beach in the early morning. The wide variety of life attached to it rises and begins its daily routine. This past Sunday morning, I journeyed to Santa Monica Beach, and Palisades Park, top of the sandy cliffs above Pacific Coast Highway. After parking at a meter, I joined countless […]

Retro Crystal Cove

What could be better than a gorgeous Southern California beach…. until you toss in a few historic beach cottages, an on-the-sand restaurant, cocktail bar, museum, and gift shop! It’s all discretely tucked away at Crystal Cove State Park, along Pacific Coast Highway (better known as PCH) south of Corona del Mar, north of Laguna Beach. I’d […]

“Fearless”

Courage, guts, and a “you won’t beat me” attitude came to my mind while watching this seagull hold his ground (sand) as a “giant” wave loomed behind him, the first of several that he outsmarted. Yeah, maybe he was clever enough, or had experience enough, to know where the wave would crash and that he’d be safe, […]

“Throwback Thursday with Vintage Crystal Cove Beach”

Vacation cottages from another era, a beautiful secluded beach, and the Pacific Ocean, seem like a great combo for today’s Foto Fix. Venturing out earlier this year with my new Nikon D5100, I used the miniature setting, not having a clue what I was doing, and captured this vintage-feel shot that I love. Luck or […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
