Food for Thought

Food for Thought

As I’ve pointed out before, Nicole’s Gourmet Foods is a fantastic spot for both dishing and noshing, offering a cozy outdoor setting for conversation and a great selection of yummy French goodies. It’s such an inviting spot that when I walk by during off hours and look at those empty chairs, I imagine all the [...]

Urban Will-o’-the-Wisps

They’re just street lamps, traffic signals and brake lights, right? I don’t know… as Halloween approaches maybe there’s another explanation for these ghostly night twinkles. Read the Full Story at Glimpses of South Pasadena

Fall Foliage, South Pas Style (#2)

Cooler temperatures haven’t put a damper on blooming things around here. (I just love the way Southern California thumbs her nose at convention and wears spring clothes all year round.) Read the Full Story at Glimpses of South Pasadena

Sunset and Strings

Sunset and Strings

Art and music combined to create a festive evening in downtown South Pas last night.

Such big music from [...]

I’ve highlighted this striking little South Pas resident before, but I felt particularly compelled to bring him back to the blog. You see, he bears a striking resemblance to a character in a new book that everyone it talking about. I heard two girls raving about it at the train station. I received several email [...]

It’s the first of the month, and than means it’s Theme Day for participating City Daily Photobloggers. This month’s theme is Contrast. Lovely, mesmerizing contrast. It’s why I adore monochrome photography and night shooting — all those dark darks and silvery lights turn my little bedroom community of South Pas into a film noir playground. [...]

Everyday Wonder

I love the stretch of Hawthorne that runs along the train tracks. Most of the time it’s just a quiet, small town road. At sunset, however, it transforms into a lacy study of color and light. Just look at the leafy silhouettes, the relics of our wired world and that MGM technicolor backdrop of a [...]
