Pond at Oak Glen

Today’s Foto Fix was taken a few weeks ago at Oak Glen. I’d hoped to see some fall colors, but the weather hadn’t yet allowed that to happen. Maybe I’ll take another drive up there this month… fingers crossed for cooler days! ~SueBee

Changing of the Leaf

I drove up the mountain from Yucaipa to Oak Glen, hoping to find a bit of fall color… I found it, a bit, as evidenced by this picture. I’m guessing our hot weather hasn’t been what the trees need to give us that beautiful splash of color we adore. Maybe next month… ~SueBee

Look Up at Union Station

Happy Friday! I took this picture yesterday while hoping not to get plowed into by people rushing past as I pointed my camera waaaay up at the ceiling. This was in the East Terminal at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles. Rather dizzying I must say. ~SueBee

Weekly Photo Challenge: Twisted

For this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge for the word Twisted, I’m repeating a post I uploaded May 24, 2014. I feel the photo is so suitable, and I’m short on time, so, there we go! I took the photo at a gallery within the Los Angeles Brewery during their ArtWalk. Sadly, I don’t recall the […]

Facing Point Cavalla

Today’s Foto Fix was taken while in San Francisco. Beyond the swimmer, and the sailboat is Point Cavalla and Fort Baker. The adorable town of Sausalito would be around the bend, bayside, beyond that, the Golden Gate Bridge to the left, and San Francisco behind me. ~SueBee

1 + Tea House, revisited

I haven’t been out and about exploring recently, or taking new pictures, so I decided to post a picture from last year. It’s one I took in San Francisco’s Chinatown.  I thought the Tea House sign, advertising for a downstairs shop, was quite a contrast to the laundry hanging to dry on the balcony.  I […]

Highway Into the Dunes

For a quick Foto Fix, please enjoy this picture I took while driving on Hwy 127 from Baker, California toward Pahrump, Nevada. It’s a wonderfully lonely drive… much different than the oftentimes bumper-to-bumper traffic I’d been experiencing on Hwy 15 toward Las Vegas. Truly a breath of fresh air. ~SueBee

Weekly Photo Challenge: Favorite Place

My entry into this week’s Photo Challenge of a Favorite Place is a picture I took at Southern California’s Corona Del Mar beach. It truly is a favorite place. When my mom passed away nearly two years ago, her ashes were scattered at sea, as per her wishes, joining my dad. That same day, my […]

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
