I have no pretensions about my posts.  Something catches my eye, a picture is taken, then words are written.   I try my best, but sometime the images are a bit fuzzy.   Same goes for my text.  I mean well, but have been known to fall prey to the colon, semi-colon, and typo hazards […]

Shared History in the Crown City

Shared History in the Crown City

The Pasadena Digital History Collaboration is a partnership that is focused on discovering and sharing the images that tell a bit more about our history. You wonder what kids were wearing at the schools that no longer exist – the images are part of the collection.  Ever wonder where our longstanding appreciation for architecture comes […]

when we will move from our home. If we do, I will miss the magic of the Gothic vista that is a part of our dawn and our dusk.

Last Saturday the air was a bit crisp, the skies were clear and dry.  Great conditions for garden tours. We’re back at the long, driveway of one of the Altadena gardens.   I actually took these pictures in reverse order.  This garden was a combo of  practicality and whimsy.  It never took itself too seriously.
