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 […]

Filming Car Scene

It’s not uncommon to see film crews around Southern California, but it’s always extra fun to see them in action! The photos in this gallery were taken in downtown Los Angeles recently. I’m always amazed at the large amount of equipment and people required for shooting an individual scene. And, who knows if all that work […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Split Second Story

Our entry into this week’s challenge, Split Second Story, shows the moment before a new street sign was lifted and bolted into place, making a left or U-turn illegal at 6th Street in downtown Los Angeles. A person driving the area regularly may be caught unaware by this new sign posting, particularly if said person missed […]

On Broadway, part 2 (21 photos)

The gallery included here continues the photography walking tour I did recently on Broadway in downtown Los Angeles, as started in part 1. I won’t write anything, rather, I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. I think they tell quite a story. Be sure to click on a photo to open the gallery. Thanks for joining […]

Faux real? (5 photos)

Gathering at the designated meeting point for a recent photography walking tour of Broadway in downtown Los Angeles, we waited for others to arrive. I started scanning the surrounding area, anxious to get started, and noticed window washers high up the side of a building.I was a bit perplexed they were working on a Saturday, so I switched […]

Rooftop Shoot

Scanning the downtown L.A. skyline while standing atop Bunker Hill last Saturday, near the upper landing of Angel’s Flight, the scene below caught my eye. Oh! People on a rooftop with two large white balloons. Interesting…must get a closer look…Ah-ha! It must be a photo shoot. I zoomed in, feeling somewhat like an intruder to an […]

Pershing Square Hero

Walking in downtown L.A. last Saturday, I veered off Broadway to Hill, and into Pershing Square where I met this gentleman, a gentle man. I offered him the coffee I’d bought but decided I didn’t want because it’s impossible to walk and take pictures while holding a cup, and the pictures were more important to me. I […]

On Broadway, part 1 (22 photos)

Met up with a street photography group yesterday morning in downtown Los Angeles. That was a first for me, as majority of my photography expeditions are solo, or occasionally with Kat. There must have been 20 people gathered at the prescribed meeting point, but I branched off with one other woman instead, and we headed out. For […]

Cupid’s Mark

Today’s Foto Fix was taken in an Old Towne Orange back alley. Notice the heart graffiti on the right… looks like Cupid’s left his mark! ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

Batbike!

Oftentimes it’s the smallest of details making the difference between a picture with no story and one with. I’ve noticed since really jumping into photography with both feet, and particularly since having this blog, I seek out the scenes that make a story. They abound, and yet many walk on by without noticing. I’m thankful […]

Silver Lake to Angelino Heights, Part 1

Having a spontaneous nature is a good thing, in my opinion. When my son called this past Sunday morning, (while I was busy unpacking boxes from a very recent move) and invited me to one of our favorite restaurants for lunch… in the next county… it took me all of 2 seconds to say yes! […]

Striding By Art

This large wall art appears to be a serpent, or something snake-like, with exposed skeleton in parts, organs and scales in others. I don’t see the head anywhere, but it could have been further down the wall. I had just a moment to catch the picture before the signal changed and my son accelerated. The […]

Rainbow Palms

During a trip to Palm Springs, I came across a vintage hotel, surrounded by palms, with rainbow colors painted on the building. I absolutely love the style of vintage architecture, tons of color, and unique designs, so I just had to snap a pic of this quirky building! ~Kat (pic by Kat)

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 […]

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
