Gates (#1)

Nov 14, 2011

South Pasadena is a far cry from a gated community. Okay, there’s that one weird fortress of a neighborhood near the high school. (I confess, I’ve never explored it. Could I even manage to sneak in without a passcode?) But the rest of the city is beautifully accessible.

That doesn’t mean there aren’t some mighty fine gates to admire and, in my case, photograph for all of you.
Here is one of the two historic Oaklawn portal gates. (You can read about the portals and see a wider shot here, and find out even more about the entire Oaklawn neighborhood here.)
Join me this week I take a look at some of South Pasadena’s interesting and photogenic gates.
