A Tidbit: Scale Fails…

Scale is the subject of this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge!  And it spurred me to offer my “perspective” on an area in which I think I need a bit of work… For instance – any idea what this is? At a glance, it might seem like some idle scribblings in the dirt.  Or the work of […]

Burbank: The “Home is Where The ‘B’ Is” Bit

What a season full of disasters it’s been… Earthquakes.  Fires.  Hurricanes.  My heart goes out to all those affected.  And my own experience seems trivial by comparison now, but I have to say my heart also missed a beat when the recent La Tuna fire – apparently, the biggest ever in the city of Los […]

A Tidbit: Layers in Time

Greetings!  The latest weekly WordPress Photo Challenge of Layered made me think of this photo from a recent trip to Columbia, California.  It’s a shot of an old blacksmith shop and it speaks to me not just of a moment in time but of a moment in history too! Columbia State Historic Park is a lovingly preserved example […]

The “You Know It’s Fall When” Bit

I’ve always loved the fall!  And after a fry-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk-hot summer here in LA, I am really looking forward to it this year – even if, as I’ve noted before, Angeleno autumns don’t tend to be textbook (it’s approaching 100 degrees outside as I’m typing this…). Having spent half my life in NoCal’s Bay Area and half […]

A Tidbit: Snowy

Am pausing in the sweltering SoCal heat to answer this week’s unusual WordPress Photo Challenge with three photos.   Though snowfall isn’t an unusual occurrence for lots of people, I’ve always found a special magic in snow – and boy would I welcome a little flurry just now! Having grown up largely deprived of pack and powder, […]

A Tidbit: Transient Sky

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge, Transient, made me think of views I’ve enjoyed of the ever-changing sky and sea! Recently, Mum and I took off for a short trip to the California coast with all kinds of ideas about where we’d go and what we’d see.  But once we got settled in, all our other plans […]

A Tidbit: Taliesin West

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is Order – a concept which, if I’m honest, has never played a large role in my life (afraid I’ve always tended toward the messy…). Though I have little personal experience – and no expertise whatsoever – when it comes to order, the word did make me think of my visit to Taliesin […]
