Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life (2)

Recycling a few photos from earlier articles showing Southern California’s Street Life. ~SueBee (pics by both Kat and SueBee) “For this challenge, document the movement (or stillness) of a street: tell a story with your snapshot, capture a scene that reveals a bit about a place, or simply show us where you live — or a path […]

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 […]

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)

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)

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 […]

Mr Patriotic

I spotted this dapper gentleman riding along past Ports O’Call Village in San Pedro. Actually, it would have been impossible to miss him. Notice the loudspeaker in the box behind his seat. Those speakers were blasting patriotic music so loud I’m sure he was heard miles away! By the time I caught up with him […]

Street Photography at MacArthur Park

MacArthur/Westlake Park is one of L.A.’s oldest parks. Originally an unappreciated swamp used as a city dump, L.A.’s mayor during the late 1800s, William Workman, proposed to have the “swamp” converted into a city park. MacArthur/Westlake Park opened to the public in 1890. (For more history on the park, read the following article by Nathan […]

“Neon Mohawk”

Visited MacArthur Park, located just outside of Downtown L.A., with my Auntie Jeanne for a street photography expedition. I’ve always found it difficult to snap candid photos of strangers, but used this opportunity to break out of my comfort zone. While wandering the grounds, I spotted this character entertaining the kids. Wasn’t too difficult to […]

“Jammin”

Today’s Foto Fix consists of three pictures… combined they tell the story of a lively jam session along the promenade, next to the wharf, at Huntington Beach. ~SueBee (photos by Sue Bee)

Beach People, Wake Up!

People get their day on, one way or the other, as seen at Santa Monica Beach this past Sunday. From one end of life’s spectrum to the other, some wide awake and happily active, others avoiding morning at all costs. I saw joy, I saw sorrow. A morning at the beach in Southern California. This […]

Social/Street Photography in So Cal

Taking photos of people on the streets (social/street photography) is a different style of photography from landscape, animals, even portraiture, but it’s one that some people thrive in. I listen to KPCC, Southern California’s public radio station (NPR). Earlier this year I heard about a workshop planned at their studios in Pasadena, called the 24 Hour […]

Bicycling Balloon Girl

Photo expeditions throughout the Los Angeles area are a blast. Searching out the odd, quirky, and unusual is not too difficult, considering I’ve pegged it “the world in a handbasket”. It’s truly a fascinating place! Recently Kat and I were photographing on the Westside, heading homeward, when I chose a random route through Hollywood towards the 101. Traffic was pretty crazy. Well, when isn’t […]

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
