Canvassing the Neighborhood

Painters have descended! Rational deduction would lead us to conclude they are gearing up for the California Art Club‘s upcoming Plein Air exhibition: South Pasadena, City of Trees. But maybe it’s just a sign that South Pas as muse brings out the Renaissance creative type in all of us no matter how we choose to [...]

The ee cummings-worthy sign on the door, as nebulous as it is descriptive, is just one of the reasons I love this place. (And no, there’s no men’s entrance. This is it.) It’s on Fair Oaks in the middle of town, not far from the more zen-like sanctuary of Mission Street Yoga. Sure, kundalini energy [...]

This is turning into a series… So, the accountant/endocrinologist from yesterday’s post must have a grandmother who lives across town in this house. And maybe the story goes something like this: For years Grandpa must have wondered why Granny was so distant, so unreachable … until he found the box on the top shelf of [...]

When the city sleeps…

As I was adjusting the camera settings and setting up my tripod to shoot an isolated night image of the Station Lofts, I heard the faint but unmistakable sound of Green Day’s Boulevard of Broken Dreams playing somewhere nearby. Then, this guy walked into the shot. Nice touch, serendipity! Go to Glimpses of South Pasadena
