Sushi Bar Romance

Newport Beach, CA

I was walking back to my car when I saw this colorful neon sign so I took a picture. Looks like I captured more than just a sign. :)

Welcome to the adventures of little Alexandre Legris and his train Monsieur  Charbon. Mr Charbon is fueled by imagination  and Alexandre has lots of it. Today they're probably off to solve a mystery of some sort.

Parisien Passage Reflections

 Paris, France (Passage Beaujolais) This passage links rue de Richelieu to rue de Montpensier

Walk through this passage, make a quick right then walk a few hundred feet and voila on the left side is the apartment where Vicki and I stay while we are in Paris. I walk through this passage to my favorite patisserie every morning while we're here except for Sundays when the passage gates open late.
When I first saw this photo I was a little disappointed  that the name of the restaurant was obscured by the bright light but when I looked closer I noticed that the restaurant's name starts above it's door and is completed in the reflection on the left side. It's named "Alfred"

Checkout Weekend Reflections!

Fish in the Grass

Newport Beach, California (Fashion Island)

It's not everyday that I see a school of fish swimming in tall grass.

This is my post for The Weekend in Black and White.

Orange County Sunset

Balboa Beach, Ca

These are two crops of the same picture. I arrived on the beach this evening just in time to take a few shots of this amazing sunset. The sea spray and wet sand reflected the sun and made everything look bright orange. To me me it kind of looks like the people are performing a strange sun worshiping dance. :)

The Electra

Newport Beach, California (Lido Marina)

"Welcome aboard the Electra.
Built in 1929, this 100-foot Classic Fantail vessel has been exquisitely restored to combine all the romance and opulence of the past with the comfort and convenience of today."

This is my Watery Wednesday post.

Blue Light at Night

Balboa Island, Newport Beach, California

I know the meaning of a red light but I don't know if a blue light has a particular significance. Whatever the case I liked the look of the shadows that came from the gate.

We don't have many fancy doorways around here but I submit this as my Midweek Blues and Wednesday Doorway post.
