Today is the first of the month, and that means it’s Theme Day for participating City Daily Photo bloggers. This month’s theme is Doorways. Here is the vantage point from the doorway of The Rialto, South Pasadena’s decaying film palace. It has been closed for some time now, open only for the occasional birthday party […]

Maybe he really likes carrots…

I’m not sure what this guy is supposed to be, but I have some ideas: The spirit of a jack o lantern? The black sheep of the Blue Man Group? A tequila sunrise? At any rate, he sure brightened up the corner of Fremont and Lyndon yesterday. So, dear readers, what are you dressing up […]

Dollhouse

The gingerbread trim and purple gable make this house seem like something out of a fairy tale. And since it’s getting closer to Halloween, perhaps a tale like this, from poet John Reibetanz: The Finger Puppets in the Attic Dollhouse If they, more petitethan the mice whose flittingshave pillaged their robes’ sparkled trim, stood tiptoeon […]
