Reflections

While wandering through the City of Brea mall, I noticed they put in a new water feature. It was so cool looking, especially with the unusual shaped glass ceiling above it reflecting into all of the silver balls at the same time. ~Kat (pic by Kat)

Art of Shoes

The City of Brea mall is one of the nicest malls I’ve ever been to! While there, I visited the Nordstrom shoe section to find any unusual shoes to take pictures of. Designer shoes have always fascinated me…intricate designs, very unusual looking heels…a perfect picture subject 🙂 ~Kat (pics by Kat)

Lines and Textures

Hi everyone! Sorry I haven’t posted in a while! Work’s been keeping me very busy! I’m very happy to be taking pics and posting again! So, after work a couple days ago, I decided to challenge myself to find unusual textures or patterns to take pictures of in everyday places. I went to the City […]

Otherworldly Fireworks

Our town holds an annual 3rd of July Fireworks Extravaganza, which I was able to view from my front lawn, shooting over the next-door rooftop. Very convenient! I set the Nikon D5100 on 6400 ISO and hoped to hold still enough to grab a few decent shots. I am very fond of the first shot, […]

“Neon Mohawk”

Visited MacArthur Park, located just outside of Downtown L.A., with my Auntie Jeanne for a street photography expedition. I’ve always found it difficult to snap candid photos of strangers, but used this opportunity to break out of my comfort zone. While wandering the grounds, I spotted this character entertaining the kids. Wasn’t too difficult to […]

Monkeying Around!

Took a spontaneous trip to the Santa Ana Zoo today. According to their website, as a requirement of the zoo’s founder Joseph Prentice, there are 50 monkeys on the grounds at all time! Unfortunately, I was unable to capture pictures of ALL 50, but I did get a few shots 🙂 Monkeys have always been […]

Lights, Lights, Lights!

This past weekend was the last weekend of the Festival of Lights at the Mission Inn. Having never been to the Mission Inn during the Holidays before, and having heard how incredible the lights are, I really hoped I would get there this year….and I did! Cam and I took the trip to Riverside last […]

To wrap up a fantastic 2013, and bring in 2014, here are some of our favorite pics from the past year 🙂 […]

Purple Mask & French Horn

Holiday decor at Disneyland is amazing, especially in my favorite land, New Orleans Square! This “foto fix” shows one of the many elegant displays featured in N.O.S. ~Kat (photo by Kat)

Desert at the Huntington Library

The Huntington Library is home to an amazing museum, and several stunning gardens. I posted about the museum previously, but thought I’d share some pics from one of the gardens. Out of the 14 different gardens, my favorite is the Desert. Featuring over 5,000 species, I could snap pics here all day long! Below are some […]

LACMA in Black and White

Black and white photography can be stunning. The subject speaks in a way that oftentimes color doesn’t allow to be expressed, the color distracting from the image. Some of the most famous pictures, those of Ansel Adams for example, were shot in BW. I haven’t used much BW film over the years, except when I […]

Honey, We Shrunk The Grove!

Reducing the size of a city scene to miniature is kinda fun – everything takes on a toy-like appearance. When Kat and I were at The Grove, 3rd and Fairfax on the west side of Los Angeles, we decided to play with the Nikon’s settings. A few days later, after perusing the instruction manual, we realized […]

“A Sign of Love”

“L, is for the way you look at me…O is for the only one I see…V is very, very extraordinary…E is even more than anyone that you adore…and LOVE…” ~Nat King Cole’s ‘L.O.V.E’ song Found this awesome vintage sign in a flee market type shop in Hollywood…had to snap a pic! ~Kat (pic by Kat)

Hole-in-the-Wall Camping

Mojave National Preserve…what a breathtaking place to visit, and camp! My boyfriend Cam and I chose to stay at Hole-in-the-Wall Campground for a few days of hiking, climbing, and exploring (as well as the awesome camp-side stuff: campfires, s’mores, watching the stars while drinking a beer…). With the sun blasting in our eyes at 7AM, […]

“Peeling Apples”

Samples of apples grown on his Snow-Line Orchard, in Oak Glen near Yucaipa in Southern California, being peeled and laid out for us to try. So many different kinds of apples, each fresh as they can be. There’s nothing like going straight to the source… the taste can’t be beat! Crisp, juicy, sweet, tart! ~SueBee (photo […]

Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my!

To celebrate our Anniversary, my boyfriend Cam and I went to the San Diego Zoo to snap a few pics…and by a few, only 1,600 combined 😉 But really, when you’re surrounded by so many amazing animals, and have a turbo lens, how could you take less?! What a place! I haven’t been since I […]

Costumes at the Plaza

Colorful ethnic costumes fascinate me; I’m drawn to them. That’s not surprising, considering I spent a decade designing and making custom Irish Dance costumes for girls all over the US and Canada. I guess you could say I have a personal connection! The costumes in the gallery below were worn during the recent Dia de […]

It’s time for a delicious home-style meal served in a country, cozy atmosphere, surrounded by the most beautiful mountain scenery, apple trees, and a quaint country village! Visiting Apple Annie’s in Oak Glen is comforting, and […]

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
