It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood by 


A charming white gate in a picket fence, draped with cascading bougainvilleas, hints at the beauties of a hidden garden beyond. I discovered this on a quiet side street in the Belmont Heights neighborhood of Long Beach, California. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/6.3, 1/125 sec., ISO 800, late afternoon sun, handheld)

  • Thanks very much, Joy! The gate looked so pretty that I was curious to see what was on the other side, although I never did.

    This is what winter should look like…..yes I have turned from a cold weather person to a warm weather person……Beautiful image Celeste :O)

  • Thank you, Thomas! I’m in total agreement about warm weather. :) Although I photographed this in late September, bougainvilleas seem to bloom here most of the year.
