SueBee as Tour Guide

Back Alley Tomato

The photos in this gallery showcase the hardy plant Kat spotted as we cruised Melrose in Hollywood and West Los Angeles this past Sunday. Among the art-encrusted back alleys we bumped along, directly behind trendy shops, struggled this tomato vine, peeping through the fence, offering its fruit to anyone who would have it. ~SueBee (photos by Kat)

“Along Santa Monica Boulevard”

Wall art is fascinating, time consuming to photograph, and most often, frustrating… frustrating because it’s nearly impossible photographing. Drive by, see it, circle the block, circle the block, honk, honk, circle the block, park, roll down window, wait for cars to pass, wait, wait, or search for a parking spot, search, search~ …. you get […]

“Another side of Hollywood”

The world-famous Hollywood sign stands guard over multi-million dollar homes and offers quite a contrast to nature’s beauty. More about the lake and its history, along with a few more pictures, in a […]

As Nick’s website says: “Nick Metropolis has been buying, selling, renting and consigning collectible furniture, or “collectable” as Nick […]

Bicycling Balloon Girl

Photo expeditions throughout the Los Angeles area are a blast. Searching out the odd, quirky, and unusual is not too difficult, considering I’ve pegged it “the world in a handbasket”. It’s truly a fascinating place! Recently Kat and I were photographing on the Westside, heading homeward, when I chose a random route through Hollywood towards the 101. Traffic was pretty crazy. Well, when isn’t […]
