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

Corona del Mar in Southern California is the setting for my entry into the Weekly Photo Challenge: Serene. I took this photo just a week or two ago after a lovely drive down the coast after work one evening. That was a serene end to the day! ~SueBee

Weekly Photo Challenge: Transformation

Rocks on the beach make a transformation into art at my hands. Photos of a few of the many dozen I’ve painted are submitted as entry into this week’s Photo Challenge: Transformation. I first took up this hobby about 2 1/2 years ago, during my mini-vacation to Cambria, on California’s central coast. Rocks were in […]

Corona del Mar at Sunset with Boat

This picture was taken last Friday after work as I wandered along the shoreline at Corona del Mar. The setting sun catching on the tiny river of water running into the ocean caught my eye. With a bit of editing, I think the picture nearly looks like a painting. ~SueBee

Weekly Photo Challenge: Temporary

My entry into this week’s Word Press Photo Challenge on the word Temporary, was so temporary I nearly didn’t get the picture! I was north of Ventura, on my way to Solvang, and pulled off the 101 to take a side road right along the shore. Noticing really big birds on the overhead wire, I naturally […]

Bug on the Pier

Today’s Foto Fix of a classic Volkswagon Bug (Beetle) was taken on the Avila Beach Pier while I was blissfully away on my little mini road trip, exploring the central California region. I’d never been to Avila Beach before and feel lucky to have “discovered” it. What a quaint, hidden-away spot… one to which I’ll […]

Taking Another Look

I’ve decided to recycle photos now and then… not that I don’t have enough new ones to wade through. But, when time is limited for selecting and editing, re-sharing seems a decent alternative. As to this particular shot, notice the dragonfly at the tip of a branch on the left! ~SueBee
