I love browsing though vintage/thrift/antique stores! I rarely ever buy anything, as I'm trying to get rid of the crap I have! But, it's fun to look. You never know what you're going to find, like these super cute vintage... Continue reading

Hey, hi, and happy Friday! Have I even done a Friday Five this month? It feels like I haven't. I also didn't get a write up of last Saturday's Adventure in Atascadero (which wasn't so much an "adventure" as it... Continue reading

Under the pier at Avila Beach, CA. I used PicMonkey's Infrared effect first, then added Sunglow to the sunlight reflecting on the water, which ended up giving it kind of a sepia tone! Continue reading

This is a double rose bloom ceramic knick-knack I got as a gift many many years ago. I actually started collecting these, but thankfully stopped at four. They're not my style anymore, and I'm no longer interesting in having lots... Continue reading

All I did on this photo was crop the top of a light pole out of it, otherwise, it just came out this way! Cheers! Continue reading

This past Saturday my mom and I went down to the Grape Encounters EmPOURium in downtown Atascadero and I had a One Way Red Flight. It was a lot of fun, and I got to try some delicious new-to-me red... Continue reading

Years ago I had a "Quote of the Day" desktop calendar. Each day had a different inspirational quote, many of which helped get me through my day either by being witty, or thoughtful, or, like this one, just what I... Continue reading

I found this cute little old doll at a local antique store. I love the look on her face - it's like she's got a secret! I used PicMonkey's Lomo effect for this shot. Cheers! Continue reading

Pink is one of my all-time favourite colours! I have various shades of pink nail polish, pink clothing items, and pink accessories. I'm not sure if I'm pre-programmed to like pink because I'm a girl and grew up with Barbies,... Continue reading

I bought myself a new wall decoration for my bedroom at The Backyard, a home and garden shop behind Bru Coffeeshop in Atascadero, and I'm very excited to debut it soon! (Also for this picture I sued the Focal B&W... Continue reading

All my life I have wanted to get a fabulous shot of the moon. But, even with my super good 35mm Konica camera, I was unable to achieve it. And none of my Canon Elphs, or my iPhones were able... Continue reading

I discovered this sweet little Buddha statue sitting on a fence in the corner of the Garden Wedding Chapel in Morro Bay. I used PicMonkey's Daguerreotype effect in Brady, and the Focal Soften to help the Buddah stand out. Continue reading

Gorgeous kelp forest at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I don't know if that was the real life sunshine pouring in through the top of the tank, or if it's artificial sunlight, but I love how it filters down and makes... Continue reading

Not a pretty picture for you today, just a shot of someone's junk they just dumped on the lawn in front of a business downtown. Disgusting! I mean, I can see the bag ripped open, but you don't just leave... Continue reading

This homeless guy in Monterey, California had a rather clever way to make money - building towering stacked stones that attracted tourists with cameras. Instead of just sitting on a street corner with a sign doing nothing, he created art!... Continue reading

The cute little birdhouse was hand-made by my mom using wine corks we've collected over the years. She loves doing crafts, and did a great job on this house (in my humble opinion!)! I used PicMonkey's Lomo effect on this... Continue reading

I have no idea how this photo even happened, but I think it's pretty cool! There are no filters or effects used - honest! It just came out this way! I hope you enjoy it! Cheers! Continue reading

Today F is for Family. No, these are not pictures of my family, however, but of someone else's. I found them in a bin in an antique shop. It's kinda sad, don't you think, that someone's memories are up for... Continue reading

Does anyone else see the "eyes" on these two birch trees? I swear they were staring at me! For this picture I used the Holga effect at PicMonkey. I think it makes the eyes pop a little more. Continue reading

As I was walking around Cannery Row in Monterey, California recently, I looked down noticed there were vintage sardine can labels embedded in the sidewalk. It was pretty cool, and reminded me to always down as well as up and... Continue reading
