It's a Sign…

It's a Sign…

I often look for reasons to drive on Hope Street. It’s a pretty little road, but not particularly noteworthy. Other South Pas streets have bigger landmarks, and flashier houses and larger trees. But I don’t drive on Hope Street for the views … I drive on Hope Street because it’s fun to say to myself, [...]

Ready for her Closeup

When you live in the greater Los Angeles area, you get used to coexisting with Hollywood’s dream factory. Yet another film crew set up along El Centro the other day. Despite an impressively lavish production set up across the street in the library lawn and down the block at the brick lofts, it was business [...]

Day melts into night as civilization ebbs and swells.

Branching Out…

Branching Out…

It’s not that South Pasadena is oblivious to the effects of heritage trees. Sure, many or our streets are uneven (take a look at the curb above!) and a lot of clay sewage pipes burst from tangled roots underground. We understand. Trees can cause damage to infrastructure. And on a similar unromantic note, we should [...]
