In the Crosswalk

Today’s Foto Fix was taken from inside the car yesterday on Glendale Boulevard, driving towards the Angelino Heights section of Los Angeles. I’d had lunch with my son at an old favorite, the Red Lion Inn, a German pub/restaurant in Silver Lake, then was lucky to have him driving while we toured a bit of […]

Golfing at the Pacific

While on a drive along the spectacular, gorgeous, beautiful Palos Verdes Peninsula, I stopped to take some photos of the Trump Golf Resort. I remembered reading about it some time back, whatever controversy that it caused as it was being planned and then built (sorry, don’t remember details of that), and so when I spotted […]

Bocce in the Park

I was out and about in the Pasadena/Arcadia area recently, taking pics, and came across this group of men lawn bowling. They were so serious and intent on their game that naturally, they were the perfect photo subjects! Of course, the guy’s stars and stripes hat was an added bonus!! 🙂 ~Kat (pics by Kat)

Ready for Battle

This scene reminded me of the western movies I loved as a kid…. brave warriors, lined up, spears proudly held upright, each ready for battle, awaiting the command to attack…the spears then lowered and horses nudged into action. Today’s Foto Fix and story were created at the Los Angeles County Arboretum a week or so […]

L.A. Mycological Society

Who knew? Not me! Knew what, you ask? That a society exists for mushrooms! I’d never even heard the word mycology (the study of mushrooms and fungi) in my life. A recent visit to the L.A. County Arboretum, though, coincided with an exhibition sponsored by the Los Angeles Mycological Society. I arrived late in the day, […]

Duck in the Clouds

Today’s Foto Fix is of a duck floating in the clouds… a reflection on one of the lakes at El Dorado Nature Center, featured in my other articles here and here. ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

El Dorado Nature Center (2)

This is the second part of my previous article introducing the El Dorado Nature Center in Long Beach. I visited there this past Saturday and really enjoyed myself. It’s a beautiful place to spend some time outdoors, take a walk, use your camera!  ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

Car Show Band

Downtown Garden Grove each Friday late afternoon, the classic cars roll into town, Main Street’s closed off, the band entertains until dark and folks start to head for home. That’s a good way to end the work week! ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

Seriously?!!

I’m filing this picture under “only in Southern California”. I’ve seen plenty of limousines being driven around the Southland, taking high school kids to the prom, famous people to events, bridal parties to and fro… but I’ve never seen a limo this crazy long before! While walking around the L.A. County Arboretum in Arcadia this past […]

Hiking Whiting Ranch

My boyfriend Cam discovered an amazing hike near the Cleveland National Forest in Southeast Orange County: Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park. We’ve been a couple times, but during our last visit, we spotted a whole group of deer! We both had our cameras along, so of course we had to capture a few pics. 🙂 The […]

El Dorado Nature Center (1)

While growing weary of packing boxes for an upcoming move, I decided fresh air was in order. Following a recent recommendation of my oldest daughter, Angelika, I drove to the El Dorado Nature Center, just off the 605 freeway in Long Beach. My visit there was just what the doctor (me) ordered! It’s impossible to […]

“Sky on Fire”

While driving home from Anza Borrego, the sky looked like it was on fire! Had to capture a pic! Amazing how gorgeous sunsets look with rain clouds in the sky. ~Kat (pic by Kat)

Take Me Out to the Ballgame!

I heard on the radio this past week that Baseball Spring Training is starting up, which prompted me to dig out some photos from last year when Kat and I attended an Angel’s game in Anaheim. Going to the game was one of my typical spontaneous ideas… nostalgia had started kicking in while driving past […]

Formation Flying

Birds flying in formation is a fascinating thing to watch. I’ve been hearing quite a bit on the radio recently about scientists researching reasons for the V formation. It’s interesting! This particular group was lined up over Anaheim in Orange County and I was lucky enough to catch a few shots before they went by. […]

Eat Here! El Cholo

For the best Margarita in town, or a carnitas street taco, or grilled corn on the cob, or green corn tamales….. I could go on and on, but suffice it to say that both Kat and I highly recommend El Cholo Mexican Restaurant. There are several locations, with the original being just west of downtown Los […]

Chinatown Superheroes?!

Stopping to photograph a very colorful shop in downtown L.A.’s Chinatown brought a surprise bonus when these three guys walked by. While briefly trying to guess which (if any) cartoon characters they might be (?), I spent more time imagining claustrophobia and inability to breathe while being inside those tight, stifling, suffocating costumes. Actually the […]

Veggie Art

Today’s Foto Fix showcases the most unique and beautiful cauliflower I’d ever seen! I’ve since learned the proper name is romanesco cauliflower. These particular ones were being kept fresh with ice cubes at the Cal Poly Pomona University Farm Store. Art in all places, even the vegetable bin! ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

The Glass Church

Set among the redwoods in Rancho Palos Verdes, overlooking the blue Pacific Ocean waters, the famous Wayfarer’s Chapel beckons those who seek the spiritual serenity of nature. Designed by Architect Lloyd Wright, son of the renown Frank Lloyd Wright, and completed in 1951, it’s also known as The Glass Church. According to their website, “the […]

Beachside Photography Class

In San Diego, looking for an opportunity to hike, visit the beach, and maybe snap some gorgeous landscape/outdoor pics? Torrey Pines is the place to explore! Took an absolutely wonderful outdoor photography class (through the sporting good store REI) with Cam and his family a little while back. We met at the beach, and hiked […]

Ahoy!

Awaiting their Captain and First Mate, these deck chairs undoubtedly have adventures of the high seas they could share, and…. wait! Hush…shhhh… if you listen carefully once the ships have docked, the sun set, a pink-tinged sky has settled into a deeper hue, the crew has hoisted their last “cheers” and retired, you just might catch […]

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
