Gus’s regulars will recognize this sign from the back room wall… LA Eater recently featured a fantastic article about South Pasadena’s very own Gus’s BBQ, and they even included the above photo of mine. Jon and I have a joke that if it hadn’t have been for Gus’s, our family might have starved when Raine […]

Summer is Here…

Summer is Here…

…and it’s particularly fun to spend it at Orange Grove Park. Read the Full Story at Glimpses of South Pasadena

Gated Grandeur

Gated Grandeur

This mysterious gate leads to a Florentine palazzo-inspired mansion designed by Reginald D. Johnson and built in 1916 as a winter residence the distinguished John S. Tanner of Chicago.  (How could Mr. Tanner ever go back to the hectic windy city after spending the holidays strolling around this dreamy spot?) Known for years as the […]

Homes Sweet Homes

Homes Sweet Homes

I’ve been charmed by the homes in South Pasadena ever since my husband and I actually bought one of them and moved here 8 years ago!  I made the video above several years ago, highlighting some of the varied and beautiful houses around town.  I’ve been busily shooting more home pictures, so there will be […]

Storybook House

Storybook House

Every time I think I’ve found a favorite house in South Pas, I find yet another one that I adore.  This one is right out of a fairytale, don’t you think? I’m in a South Pasadena Home Tour kind of mood these days, so look for more shots of picturesque homes.  It’s no wonder so […]

When a Utility Box is More Than Just a Utility Box

When a Utility Box is More Than Just a Utility Box

So Many Parks, So Little Summer…

So Many Parks, So Little Summer…

Kicking it at South Pasadena parks… When Jon and I moved to South Pas 8 1/2 years ago, our daughter — who many longtime readers still think of as Little Bit — was only 2.  That meant many, many, MANY sunkissed afternoons spent in local parks.   Of all the choices in South Pas — […]

Mission Station

Mission Station

I haven’t taken the brand new Expo Line from downtown LA to the beach yet, but I’m already an old fan of South Pasadena’s Gold Line which now goes all the way out to Azusa and will eventually end up in Montclair.  I can’t resist taking pictures whenever I wait at Mission Station.  Those columns! […]

City with a View

City with a View

I love grand, sweeping panoramas. For a city of only a few square miles, South Pasadena has an amazing number of beautiful views. (I actually wrote about it for Patch a few years ago.) Sure, a postcard view is an easy shot for a photographer when all you have to do is point your camera […]
