Glimpses of S. Pas.


Taijitu

Taijitu

Duality fascinates me. I love the way two seemingly incongruous things can exist together in a kind of light/dark, up/down symbiosis. Just think about how boring life would be if we only had the angel on one shoulder demanding that we mind our manners and eat our vegetables. Without that little devil on the other [...]

Love on Fair Oaks

Swingers

You know, nothing say home sweet home quite like a wholesome scene of dormer windows, a shade tree and a tire swing. Um, yeah. About that tire swing… My first thought pegged it as something out of an old German expressionist film but, upon reflection, maybe it’s actually a hobby horse. (From an old German [...]

On the Right Track

Chi Totaler

Chi Totaler

The good vibes coming off this place are so potent you can just drink them in. I don’t know which is more charming — the tiny studio or the giant tree. (Maybe it’s the way the two just seem to go together in some kind of zen/feng shui affinity.) A tree that can fill the [...]

Homespun

Homespun

One of the reasons South Pasadena feels so comforting and homey is because it is loaded with old houses like this. I mean really now … just look at this place! It just begs you to slow down, grab a glass of lemonade and unplug from the frenzied digital age. And don’t kill my buzz [...]
