Into the Surf

The sky grows dark, the brisk breeze sharp, bikini clad for summer, friends close together, to conquer the surf, on their own turf. ~SueBeePhoto taken from the Seal Beach pier this past Sunday.

A Small Collection of Black and Whites

I tried a different setting on my Nikon d5100 recently, which took all the photos in Black and White. I generally prefer color, but find the change to be fun and challenging. In this case, as I took the pictures I was interested in lines and contrast as I framed each. The pictures in this gallery were taken […]

Seal Beach After the Rain, part 2

This is my final post taking advantage of our day of rain last Saturday. Continuing from yesterday, this gallery shares my experience on the pier at Seal Beach. It was a brilliant, chilly day.

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
