I haven’t been able to capture a good photograph of this year’s jacaranda explosion. Good thing I’m digging through my files this week! Here’s a favorite from several years ago. I’ve always loved this dramatic diva of a tree. Read what I wrote about jacarandas here. Originally published June 3, 2009. Yes, I’m still on [...]

Some of my favorite photos are the ones I grabbed without really thinking about it. Originally published December 26, 2011.

Going back over all of my night shots makes me realize I haven’t been out prowling in the dark nearly enough in the last few years. Originally published January 21, 2009. I’m repeating myself, folks. For the rest of this week I will present favorite shots from former posts. Read the Full Story at Glimpses [...]

This shot combines several things I love about shooting pictures in South Pasadena. First of all, it’s Kaldi. The historical building originally served as early South Pasadena’s bank building but now offers a prime, central spot for satisfying a coffee jones while taking in a great view of the South Pasadena Public Library and Morrow [...]

It’s really hard to pick a favorite of all the old cars I’ve captured with my camera, but this one is definitely up in the top ten. Okay, in the top twenty. Oh, who am I kidding? I love them all. Originally published on April 10, 2011 I continue to revisit some of my favorite [...]

Talk about being swept off your feet! I captured this aerodynamic sneaker shot at the 2009 South Pasadena Fun Fair. It still makes me feel happy and breathless. Originally published: June 1, 2009 There Laurie goes again… telling the same stories over and over. (Bear with me while I repeat myself for a few days [...]

Summer is almost here, and for me that means a perfect excuse to indulge in ice cream any day I feel like it! Sure, having a bikini-worthy body may be fun to show off at the pool — but it’s not nearly as much fun as diving headfirst into a Raymond Sundae. (Caramel sauce and [...]

I have always loved the night photography of Brassai. For years, I’ve prowled around trying to approximate the ethereal quality of those early 20th Century shots. Here, my skill is no where near on par with the master, but the vibe is similar for me: dreamlike, moody, embraced by darkness but focused on light. The [...]

What does this picture have to do with quantum entanglement? Find out what I originally said about it here. Photo originally published August 31, 2008.
