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 […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silence

For this week’s photo challenge on the word Silence , I chose this picture of my oldest daughter, Angelika. I took it at the most quiet place I’ve ever been… on California’s coast north of Santa Cruz. The road was far away, the ocean waves were quieted by the cliffs, there wasn’t a sound, just silence. […]

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 […]

Fishing from the Pier

Taking an evening walk along the Seal Beach Pier yesterday, I stopped to watch this fisherman getting his line ready and noticed a boat speeding right toward us. It managed a nice sideways maneuver and unloaded a worker from the oil platform visible in the distance. ~SueBee

Telescope to the Sea

Today’s Foto Fix was taken yesterday along the Long Beach boardwalk. Pay a quarter (I didn’t check, maybe it’s a dollar by now), get a better view… of the container ships waiting to pull in and unload, sailboats enjoying a nice afternoon, little islands dressed up with palms hiding oil rigs pumping non-stop, people walking and […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Against the Odds

I’m entering this week’s photo challenge, Against the Odds, with an action picture that was against all odds for my photography skill level. It’s a picture I took awhile back, but it stuck in mind as perfect for this challenge. I never seem to be ready at just the right moment, but this time I […]

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
