Photography Interlude – Pacific Beach

It’s been a while since I last shared my photos with you, so I’d like to highlight another one of my favorite places today. In the midst of all of the chaos and upset going on right now, this also seems like a good time to focus on what’s good and beautiful in the world.  The lovely scenery abundant to the area where I live is a wonderful example of this, as I’ve shown in previous photography posts. A few weeks ago, my husband and I drove to Pacific Beach for a walk and to photograph the … [Read more...]

Photography Interlude – Lake Tahoe & Half Moon Bay

In my last post, I debriefed what I packed for my recent trip to Lake Tahoe and the San Francisco Bay Area.  I appreciate all of the great comments and packing suggestions I received on that post.  Some of you are seasoned packing pros who have gotten things down to a fine science!  I’ve found it helpful to take some time to review what I’ve taken on my trips and how it worked out (or didn’t) for me (you can read all of my posts on packing for travel here). I made some mistakes this last time, … [Read more...]

Photography Interlude: Laguna Beach and Huntington Beach

As I wrote in my last post, this past Monday was my fiftieth birthday.  Many people have parties to mark this momentous occasion, and I was lucky enough to enjoy such a celebration with some dear friends during my recent trip to Texas.  I will also celebrate with family in a few weeks when I travel to Lake Tahoe. But when it came down to the actual day, I opted to spend it in a low-key way with my wonderful husband. We actually extended our celebration to two days in that we ate lunch at my … [Read more...]

Photography Interlude – Point Loma Fishing Harbor

In my two most recent “photography interludes,” I shared two of my favorite walking locations, Shelter Island and La Playa.  In addition to those two picturesque locales, there are a couple of other places where I enjoy walking and taking photos.  In today’s post, I’m going to introduce you to the fishing harbor in Point Loma, which is a short walk from where I live. About the Point Loma Fishing Harbor The Point Loma fishing harbor is located on the San Diego Bay and is home to three major … [Read more...]

Photography Interlude – La Playa

It’s been almost two months since I published my last “photography interlude,” so it’s high time for another one.  Back in April, I shared one of my favorite places to walk, Shelter Island, which is less than a mile down the road from where I live.  Today, I want to share another beloved walking locale, La Playa, which is also very close to my home. About La Playa La Playa, Spanish for “the beach,” is a Bayfront neighborhood in the Point Loma community of San Diego that is bordered by the … [Read more...]

Photography Interlude – Shelter Island

One of my favorite places to walk is on Shelter Island, which is right down the street from where I live.  Over the almost 14 years that I have lived in San Diego, I’ve probably walked on Shelter Island thousands of times!   Shelter Island is not actually an island, as it’s connected to the mainland by a narrow strip of land.   The “island” is 1.2 miles (1.9 km) long and only a few hundred feet wide and is home to a number of marine-related businesses, hotels, and restaurants. A single street … [Read more...]

Photography Interlude – Beach Birds

It’s been a while since I have posted a “photography interlude,” but I haven’t stopped taking photos.  I just got busy on the blog with closing out 2015 and getting 2016 under way with a lot of posts for each of these topics.   But now that we’re into March, I thought it was high time to share some more of my photographs with you. Some Background on These Posts... For those who are new to the blog, let me give a bit of background on these “photography interlude” posts.  For years, shopping was … [Read more...]
