An Afternoon at El Dorado Nature Center

A real need to get outdoors hit, prompting a visit to the El Dorado Nature Center in Long Beach. Working in an interior office all week can do that to a person. The break was so refreshing as evidenced by these pics, taken with my iPhone. ~SueBee

Storm Remnants in Long Beach

(9 photos) “Watch your step” were the key words when wandering along the sand at Long Beach after one of our recent storms. I’m not sure where all the bamboo came from, but it was obvious where all the trash did…. humans. With all the work groups have done trying educating people to properly dispose of […]

Orange on the Sand

This orange at the water’s edge was spotted as I walked along at Long Beach a week or two ago. An artist’s still-life arrangement in the sand, and someone’s snack gone missing. ~SueBee

Beach Fashion

Photo taken at Long Beach as I surveyed the variety of trash washed up since our recent storms. Missing your other high heel, anyone? ~SueBee

Telescope to the Sea

Today’s Foto Fix was taken yesterday along the Long Beach boardwalk. Pay a quarter (I didn’t check, maybe it’s a dollar by now), get a better view… of the container ships waiting to pull in and unload, sailboats enjoying a nice afternoon, little islands dressed up with palms hiding oil rigs pumping non-stop, people walking and […]

Colors Under Water

Today I’m featuring a photo I’d taken at nearby Long Beach’s Aquarium of the Pacific, and edited to really highlight the colors! ~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 […]

Yesterday at Long Beach

After enjoying lunch at a Long Beach restaurant with my oldest daughter, Angelika, and friends yesterday, I headed over to the coast and walked along toward the color-filled sky. This is what I spotted once close enough for photos, an entire group of parasailers. It was late afternoon by then, and they were just starting to pack up their […]

Colorful Bzzzzz

These shots were taken of a very colorful buzzing-type insect, which appears to be a mosquito, at the El Dorado Nature Center in Long Beach. I don’t own a macro yet (one day, hopefully), so these shots were taken with the regular lens. I cropped in to show details. Happy Friday to my fellow bloggers! Bzzzzzz ~SueBee […]

Nature After the Rain, part 2

Continuing from yesterday, a few more photos of my visit to the El Dorado Nature Center in Long Beach… (yes, after the rain!) ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

Nature After the Rain, part 1

Once the rain stopped Saturday morning, I jumped into my little truck and drove first to the El Dorado Nature Center, located on the edge of Long Beach at the 605 freeway. While the entry is free, parking costs $7 on the weekend, but it’s oh so worth it. Point to note: I watched several people ride […]

Lorikeets in Long Beach

Fine feathered, brilliantly colored lorikeets also reside at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. There’s a very large wire enclosure to walk through, and if you wish to purchase, little cups of nectar with which to feed the birds and have them land on your arm, your head! ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Refraction

This photo, taken of a friend’s daughter at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California, demonstrates something very bizarre, and not being a science specialist, I’ll consider it as an entry to last week’s Photo Challenge theme of Refraction. The little girl is walking on the other side of a large fish tank, with a photo on […]

SueBee as Tour Guide

My niece and her 5 year old son are visiting America for the first time, coming from a very small farm village in Northern Germany. They first stayed with friends in Alamogordo, New Mexico, for two weeks, then flew to LAX where my oldest daughter, Angelika, picked them up. They stayed with her for a few days, then […]

Ocean Eye

While visiting the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach this past Sunday with relatives from Germany, I took this picture of some sort of small fish. I didn’t edit the picture at all, other than a tiny bit of color saturation. For the life of me, I can’t figure out the fish’s eye in the photo. To me it looks like […]

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
