For this week’s post, I’m going back to England, again.  I am running out of choices since I’ve not been shooting much these last few weeks.  My inspiration is slowly returning though, and when I saw this photo it sparked something in me.  It’s almost like a clean slate, very soothing on the eyes – […]

    I shoot crooked too! lol! I notice it especially with my shots of the Pacific Ocean. You’ll notice it a lot of my Instagram photos. I’ve just begun straightening them, and even sometimes remember to keep the horizon horizontal when shooting.ReplyCancel

      I’m glad I’m not the only one! HahaReplyCancel

I took so many pictures on our trip to Europe, I thought I’d share a random street shot taken in Bath, England.  Bath was so picturesque, with all the flowers and cobblestone, the limestone, courtyards and beautiful shops.  It was SO hard to leave! I cropped this picture, lightened it a bit and straightened it […]

    I found that the UK doesn’t disappoint. I honestly wasn’t sure what I’d see when I was there back in the 90’s, but found it to be, well, so English. It’s still got that air of being an old school kingdom.ReplyCancel

Hello! Any fun plans for the weekend? We’re pretty excited about Super Bowl around here, even though our team didn’t make it… So, let’s go back to San Francisco.  Here are the last half of our pictures from a weekend trip in January. The first night, we had dinner at a fun little Parisian jazz bar with […]

    I LOVE the pics of the murals! They’re so amazing and add so much to densely urban landscapes. Joe looks so gangsta! He’s ready for Oakland. LOL! I’d suggest visiting the Cliffhouse or Treasure Island. They’re places easy to forget with so much to do and see near downtown. Also, it’s outside of the city but the Muir Woods is amazing if you want some natural beauty.ReplyCancel

      Thanks for the tips, Dylan! I’ll keep that in mind when we go back 🙂 Joe is always stylin! LolReplyCancel

It’s kind of surreal that I’m in the third year of wandering eye wednesday.  I hope you are still enjoying it – I know this weekly post definitely kept me committed to the blog last year when I wasn’t feeling very creative or social. I have a post coming up with the last photos of San […]

So I think I’ve talked about Snapseed, right? It’s a photo editing app for your mobile device, and I FREAKING LOVE IT.  I don’t remember what all I did for editing on this picture, because you just choose the “Tune Image” icon, and then swipe your finger up and down and select what you want […]

  Heya! How’d your weekend shake out? I had such a lovely two days celebrating my birthday in all sorts of ways, as it should be done. After-work drinks and bowling, an unforgettable brunch filled with laughter and delicious food, a couple naps, family and friends and hugs all around. It sure made this girl feel […]

    I believe in Astrology too! Well, I believe in Aquarian Astrology at the least. When I hear other Aquarians speak, such as reading this post, I’m like, yep, nailed it! I was providing 1:1 therapy and the person I was providing therapy too said, kind of out of nowhere, “You’re an Aquarian, I can tell. So am I.” Aquarians seem to flock together too. I know so many Aquarians! Aquarians are the only people that I’ve stuck with and who have stuck with me. I find this amazing because Aquarians are so aloof. That’s why I believe in (Aquarian) Astrology!ReplyCancel

      I know a lot of Aquarians, too! I think you’re onto something about us flocking together… I feel like out of all the signs, Aquarians are the most unique. Of course, I realize I’m biased! Ha!ReplyCancel

Growing up, I often saw pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge in print or on TV and dreamed of one day visiting.  To walk the length of it, experience the magnificence of it, listen to the wind, the cars, the energy flowing over, under and around it.  Enjoying the bridge is something that pictures can’t fully […]

    This is definitely a unique perspective on such an iconic structure. The bridge sits in such a beautiful natural setting that it’s hard to not want to capture the bridge and the surroundings. Yet the intricacies of the design are lost in panoramic shots. In your photo, it seems the architects were aware that many would be viewing the bridge up close. Either in traffic, walking, or bicycling across. It is truly the Golden Gate to the Golden State!ReplyCancel

      Thank you! I totally agree with you-the architect created a work of art. You can see the pride that went into building the bridge and the consideration of its setting for sure.ReplyCancel

Hey, hey! How was your week? Last weekend, Joe and I took a quick little trip to San Francisco and explored their amazing city, cramming as much into our day and a half + two nights as possible. A co-worker shouted after me as I left work on Friday, “Don’t leave your heart in San Francisco!” Uhm, […]

    When I worked in downtown LA, sharing tables is quite common at lunch time. I love it. That’s probably where “Overheard LA” on Instagram came from. 😉ReplyCancel

      You’re probably right! It’s a very communal place… ReplyCancel
