A view of Hollywood Beach in Oxnard Ca. as sundown comes to a close.

A view from Hollywood Beach in Oxnard Ca. A hot clear after summer weekend with a clear view of Channel Islands in the distance.
Sorry friends, I have not post in awhile but I am still expressing disappointment for WP for slow browser issues and inability to ‘like’ and catch up on some of my followers posts late in the day if I do not receive subscription posts directly in my email box. Since all of my posts are photos though anyways, I have moved over to instagram and can be found under the same name curious_vogel. Although my posts can’t be viewed under the same resolution and grand scale as here on WP, it is quicker and more reliable and it isn’t riddled with all the technical issues I experience here. If you are receiving my likes and comments on your posts, it is most likely because I am getting direct emails of your posts by subscription daily. If you are not getting my ‘likes’ however, it is probably because if you are not within the first 50 or so blog posts I scroll through when I log into WP.. the ‘like’ button tends to render itself useless.

A long billed curlew finds itself a little early morning sand crab meal along the shores of Oxnard beach Ca.


A wide angle view of the moon and sea at night from the beach in channel islands harbor Oxnard Ca. The lights in the distance of the sea are massive oil rigs which are stationed out there.

A view of the beach in the evening at Channel Islands Harbor around the corner from where my brother lives.

At a visit to the beach over the weekend I couldn’t help but notice a lot of yachts and ships far out to sea. Thought it would make a nice capture to single one out as if they were a sole adventurer in the ocean and wishing to myself that I could be out there with them!

Do these dark waters reflect joy and dreams of tomorrow
Or do you find here only heartbreak and sorrow?

Pelican Through Fence

When Sunday’s show ended and we headed back to the parking lot of Miner St. I couldn’t help but notice a large pelican at the end of the docks. Unfortunately, the area this big bird was perched was gated and off limits to pedestrians so, i had to find a way to get a shot of the creature by other means which was through the fence. At first I thought of just deleting this shot but on second looks it ended up being quite interesting.


Using the sketch photo option in my camera I took this random shot of my surroundings on Miner Street in San Pedro’s Port of Los Angeles. If you can catch a glimpse of the canopy tents to the right, that is actually what brought us here that day. We were here to watch Cirque Du Soliel’s Totem as a surprise for my birthday which was on Sunday. However, no photography was allowed at the show itself so, I took advantage of what was within walking proximity of me instead, before the show began. Scenes like this and the Lane Victory ship were pleasant atmospheric surroundings which you could walk to from the circus tents that day.
