NO LIMITS TO…

BEAUTY

Oftentimes, society would like us to believe there are limitations to beauty.

  • Under a certain age
  • Within certain weight parameters
  • A particular skin color

Maybe one day we will realize that beauty…meaningful beauty, radiates from the inside!

THE BEAUTY AT THE END OF THE PATH

•November 2, 2016 • Leave a Comment

While there may be beauty along the path – if you make it to the end of the path, oftentimes the most beauty will be found there…waiting for you.  From a little noticed garden just north of where we live – such a scene of serenity.  I certainly was not expecting anything this beautiful when I first visited the Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge, California.

YOSEMITE IN THE FALL

One of my favorite fall road trips has to include Yosemite National Park.  I think you can see why…

I just felt like a little fireworks this morning…

Taken from Huntington Beach looking toward the Ruby’s Diner on the pier.  Yes, that’s the moon to the lower right of the burst in the first image.

AT THE END OF THE WEEK…

So far this week we’ve journeyed up the California coast, relaxed at Huntington Beach, paid tribute to “Red the Dragonfly” with his image in my header, and even faced a visual challenge (congratulations to “Allthoughtswork” for correctly guessing the image as a dandelion seed pod).  Here’s the original:

And here is a black and white treatment of the same image:

I leave you with this image of Long Beach, California.  This is one of our favorite beach bike rides, however this image was actually captured from the deck of the Queen Mary (you have to go there if you get the chance).

Have a good weekend everyone!

WHAT IS THIS??

For those of you who have been following me for a while, you may know the answer to this question.  But to all of you who are somewhat new, this one’s for you!  And to those who have been here for a while, well…go ahead, give it a guess!

I call this “Color Fantasia.”  But, what is it?

No clues…just yet.  Thoughts?  Guesses?

CALIFORNIA COAST (DAY -1834)

•August 1, 2016 • Leave a Comment

Now you may be asking, “I get California Coast – Day 2.”  But what is this??

Well since the California coast was completely fogged in for the entire coastal trip this year, I decided to post my image from a trip we made 5 years ago.  So, this would be California Coast Day -1834.

This is the famous Bixby Bridge in Big Sur.
