Final Weekly Photo Challenge: All-Time Favorites

Sadly, this is the final Weekly Photo Challenge from WordPress, and with it, SueBee and Kat’s 130th entry. WordPress asked us to post a few of our All-Time Favorites. It would take me hours trying to determine which of thousands are my favorites, but I stumbled on the ones here. They were taken June 9, […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Story

This week WordPress asks us to tell a story with our pictures so I chose ones I took in downtown Los Angeles. This wonderfully friendly homeless man told me his story… of having been a fighter, a boxer. I must admit to cringing when he insisted on showing me his art form as he boxed […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: A Face In The Crowd

My entry into the Weekly Photo Challenge, A Face In The Crowd, was taken as people started lining up for the next show of the jazz band playing at Preservation Hall in New Orleans’ French Quarter. I later joined the line and was treated to the highlight of my trip. The Preservation Hall Jazz Band […]

Taste of New Orleans, part 2

(9 photos) Pictures from my visit to New Orleans last week continues today with a selection I took in the French Quarter my first evening there, Wednesday, January 31. It was much quieter than the following day when people started arriving en masse to get a start on Mardi Gras celebrations. ~SueBee

Taste of New Orleans, part 1

I just returned from a short trip to New Orleans, aka The Big Easy, aka NOLA, my first time there. My son, Andreas, had a work conference, his new husband, Loren, couldn’t get off work, so I invited myself along. In spite of having just one solid day, plus a few extra hours the evening […]

A Very Photogenic Ice Cream Cone

Today’s Foto Fix was taken on the Redondo Beach Pier this past Friday evening, as my oldest daughter, Angelika, and I enjoyed a short get-away vacation. While it seems everyone owning a smart phone has become a prolific photographer these days, taking pictures of anything and everything, this shot caught my attention. I never knew an […]

Wishing You Peace

From my home to yours, and from the gentleman in this photo, “wishing you Peace” for the Thanksgiving holidays… and on. Photo taken of a very friendly man in downtown Los Angeles, near Philippe’s the Original (French Dip sandwich restaurant, since 1908). Notice his vintage transistor radio!. ~SueBee

Portland Sights, part 2

(14 photos in gallery) I’m continuing from my previous post showcasing sights of Portland, Oregon, as I toured the city earlier this month. The most memorable shot on this particular day is the one below, of the older couple sitting on chairs placed right next to the street. As I was walking along, taking pictures, […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Roy G. Biv

Our entry into this week’s Photo Challenge, Roy G. Biv, was taken at Olvera Street in downtown Los Angeles. While I’d never before heard of the Roy G. Biv expression, the rainbow is what we’re presenting with these colorful costumes worn by lovely dancers. ~SueBee

Near Carthay Square, 1

If you want to check out city sights, avoid the usual throng of cars, I suggest you get out early on a Sunday morning. I spent the weekend visiting my son on the west side of Los Angeles; he lives in the Carthay Square area, near Fairfax and Olympic. I wanted to get a photo of […]

Saturday on the Streets of L.A., part 2

Continuing on from part 1 of Kat’s and my recent visit to downtown Los Angeles, this gallery showcases some fabulous street art, most of which was shot while meandering through the Arts District. I’ll definitely be going back there soon… lots of trendy restaurants and boutiques to sample, explore! ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

Saturday on the Streets of L.A., part 1

Kat and I were lucky to grab some time to explore together this past Saturday. Our schedules don’t match up that often anymore, so this was particularly special time. We headed to downtown Los Angeles, planning on first having breakfast at Grand Central Market and then visiting a museum or two. We ended up finding so much to see […]

On the West Side, part 2

Continuing from yesterday’s post, the photos in this gallery were taken by Kat, as I drove, and we explored parts of West Los Angeles. ~SueBee (photos by Kat)

On the West Side, part 1

Cruising around West Los Angeles, on or near Melrose Avenue which runs east/west across the city, this gallery of photos (part 1 today) was taken by Kat as I drove. Los Angeles is an interesting city, even in the normal everyday, and it was difficult keeping an eye on the road! I pulled over often as […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Endurance

unyielding stone beneath worn down bone protective cape, a ragged drape shoulders stooped and sagging reflective eyes, wherein memory lies of many tries, of failed ties self-made walls, treasured halls the daily shift, that load to lift cannot stay, don’t care to pray must get through another day endurance, her insurance. This week’s Photo Challenge theme is Endurance, which I’ve interpreted as the plight of the […]

Do You Photo Contest?

I joined a Photography Club a few months back and decided to participate in their photo contest, with a judge coming to the meeting to critique as each photo is anonymously displayed on a big screen, while club members sit quietly in the audience. As the first few photos were displayed at tonight’s meeting, and I noticed the judge’s main comments consisted of how to improve […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast (2)

I couldn’t resist another entry into this intriguing theme. From my perspective, this photo taken on a main highway in Carlsbad, California, is a study in contrast if ever there was one… the old days versus nowadays. Traversing our country on foot, leading a mule, zipping across town in a speedy motor vehicle. Old-time, modern-time. Viewing […]

A Touch of Yellow

Do you ever find certain colors seem to pop, and you start noticing everywhere? Bright yellow was my pop color recently. Not that it’s an easily ignored color, but I found it interesting that I began noticing yellow as I made my way around Los Angeles. Just small touches of bright yellow or neon yellow spread about. This gallery […]

“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
