Here is the vantage point from the doorway of The Rialto, South Pasadena’s decaying film palace. It has been closed for some time now, open only for the occasional birthday party […]

Theme Day: Doorways

Theme Day: Doorways

Pasadena is a foothill town, pressed up against the San Gabriel Mountains. We face nature every day, whether nature likes it or not.
