Wish Upon a Stone Mushroom

Leave a coin, make a wish… today’s Foto Fix was taken at the Huntington Library and Gardens in San Marino, California. My previous visits, I never noticed the coins left at this statue. I’m not sure the history or reason, but hey, if we can wish upon a star, why not a stone mushroom!?! ~SueBee

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dense

This week’s Photo Challenge of the word Dense features very dense-set, extremely sharp spikes on a cactus plant in the Fullerton Arboretum. Definitely a source of ouch if you get too close. ~SueBee

Lady on a Bench

Your eye is directed to the brilliantly colored flowers on the right, while there sits a lady on a bench, swinging her feet as they don’t quite touch the ground… over on the left! I shot towards the sun, needed to add a bit of contrast, but I rather like the look of the lighting. […]

From the Rose Garden

This shot of a colorful rose was taken at the huge rose garden at Exhibition Park in downtown Los Angeles. Per Wikipedia, “The Exposition Park Rose Garden is a historic 7-acre sunken garden located in Exposition Park in Los Angeles, California. It has been called “one of the city’s best-kept secrets”. It was added to the National […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Spare

…and she escaped with not a moment to spare! This is my entry into the current week’s Photo Challenge: Spare. I managed to capture this photo yesterday at the Los Angeles County Arboretum. The male peacocks were vying for attention of the females, showing off their gorgeous finery. The females were disinterested, and trying their […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Boundaries

This week’s Photo Challenge, Boundaries, states “Boundaries impose limits on us, whether they’re social constructs or real, physical objects”. I chose this photo, taken at Portland Oregon’s Japanese Garden, as an example of countless boundaries faced by those wheelchair-bound individuals or others with physical disabilities. For additional examples of Boundaries, please click here. ~SueBee

Rose Garden Carpet

Today’s Foto Fix features a rather unique scene I came across in the Portland (Oregon) Rose Garden last weekend. It was an overcast, drizzly day (wonderfully refreshing for someone coming out of a drought stricken area). People were wandering the muddy paths with umbrellas overhead. I haven’t thought to bring one, and wouldn’t know where […]

Rainbow Sherbet Rose

As I mentioned previously, the gardens are so beautiful at The Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, that I have a near-endless supply of photos from my recent visit! This gorgeous rose reminds me of sherbet (which I’ve pronounced as sherbert my entire life, by the way)… yummy! ~SueBee

Red Lily

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wall

For this week’s photo challenge, Wall, my thoughts drifted through a vast inventory of appropriate photos. From graffiti covered walls in Los Angeles and Hollywood, to the walls of fabric in downtown LA’s Fabric District. I ended up choosing these living walls. The first photo is of a plant covered wall at Olvera Street’s Old Plaza Church in Los Angeles. […]

Lady in the Pond

Today’s Foto Fix was taken in the lower garden area at the Huntington Library and Gardens in San Marino. I do enjoy reflections, but found this one particularly confusing/intriguing when flipped upside down. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

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
