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 […]

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 […]

People on the Streets of L.A.

During my spontaneous journey around Los Angeles last weekend, on Halloween day, I managed to squeeze in a bit of people photography… Los Angeles is a very interesting place! ~SueBee

Dia de los Muertos in Los Angeles, part 2

My random day in Los Angeles on Saturday led me to the Music Center and Grand Park for a beautiful and poignant Dia de los Muertos display. There were many heartfelt sentiments displayed, as evidenced by the photos in this gallery. ~SueBee

Dia de los Muertos in Los Angeles, part 1

(18 photos) I had a very spontaneous visit to Los Angeles yesterday, after dropping my son off there. When he asked if I could do him this favor, naturally my mind went directly to my trusty sidekick, the Nikon! So, camera in hand, I ended up exploring from one end of the city to the other. […]

Flash Mob Dance

When Kat and I took the train to downtown Los Angeles a few weeks ago, we were surprised by this flash mob dancing in Union Station, the main train depot. It was awesome! ~SueBee

Weekly Photo Challenge: Boundaries, 2

A second entry to this week’s Photo Challenge, Boundaries, was taken beneath downtown Los Angeles in the Metro station. The photo was taken last week when Kat and I took the train to downtown, and then hopped on the subway to reach the Broad Museum area. That was my first time riding the subway in L.A. […]

Los Angeles Arts District

Just a touch of the Arts District from when I drove through recently on my way further into downtown Los Angeles. It’s a fascinating part of the city. I need to return when I have more time to wander around. ~SueBee

I was downtown Los Angeles this past weekend for the swearing-in ceremony of California’s new Controller, Betty Yee, and snapped these photos in the area of Olvera Street, the oldest street in Los Angeles. ~SueBee

Saturday on the Streets of L.A., part 2

Continuing on from part 1 of Kat’s and my recent visit to downtown Los Angeles, this gallery showcases some fabulous street art, most of which was shot while meandering through the Arts District. I’ll definitely be going back there soon… lots of trendy restaurants and boutiques to sample, explore! ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Gone But Not Forgotten

This week’s Photo Challenge of Gone But Not Forgotten brings with it much reflection… many happy memories, and some sad. As I mentally wandered through my cache of photos, I recalled taking this shot two weeks ago while Kat and I wandered the streets downtown Los Angeles. It seems quite appropriate for the challenge, and gives the viewer multiple interpretations. […]

Patch Job

Kat and I visited downtown Los Angeles weekend before last. We got off the northbound 5 freeway at 7th Street, and headed across town via surface streets. We entered an industrial area with graffiti lined walls and fascinating old buildings. Noticing a photo shoot in progress, I pulled over and looked back. My eye was immediately captured by the patch work on the […]

Upstairs at The Last Bookstore

On the second floor of The Last Bookstore in downtown Los Angeles, is a labyrinth of rooms lined with bookshelves, which if followed along for a ways, will lead to the Fold Gallery and Curio Shop! It’s a fascinating place. The Fold Curio Shop, with a floor covered in copper pennies, to which you may contribute via a […]

The Last Bookstore

What an amazing discovery Kat and I made while wandering around downtown Los Angeles last weekend. We stumbled upon The Last Bookstore, located at 453 S. Spring Street, downtown Los Angeles! Sadly, how true that name is becoming in our cold, sterile world of electronic books and online ordering. Where will the bookstores and libraries go if people […]

Reflections at Angels Flight

I found this scene rather magical, the way light was reflecting off the mirrored buildings surrounding Angels Flight in downtown Los Angeles. Sadly, the little funicular is closed at the moment, but will hopefully be back up and running soon. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

Saturday on the Streets of L.A., part 1

Kat and I were lucky to grab some time to explore together this past Saturday. Our schedules don’t match up that often anymore, so this was particularly special time. We headed to downtown Los Angeles, planning on first having breakfast at Grand Central Market and then visiting a museum or two. We ended up finding so much to see […]

Other Side of the Tracks

This gallery of pictures was taken, quite literally, on the other side of the tracks. I visited the Art Walk at the Brewery, next to the train tracks, in downtown Los Angeles a month or so ago. Each visit there, I enjoy wandering the somewhat decrepit, rat’s-maze-like hallways as much as viewing works of the various artists who […]

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 […]

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
