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 […]

I hope you’ll forgive a few days of lazy blogging, but I need some time to clear my head. In this interim, I’ll post some of my favorite shots. Here is a lucky one captured on Arroyo Drive, at sunset after a storm. Originally published March 2, 2011 Read the Full Story at Glimpses of […]

Field Trip: Pasadena City Hall

Field Trip: Pasadena City Hall

Nearby Pasadena has a City Hall worthy of inclusion in a list of great buildings of North America. Designers John Bakewell and Arthur Brown were greatly influenced by the early Renaissance style of 16th century Italian architect Andrea Palladio. It’s obvious in the gorgeous Mediterranean Revival and Spanish Colonial details. Construction was completed on December […]

Settings: Part 41

Okay, my noir friends … this could be a setting for something spooky and nefarious. Put on your best Chandler fedora and tell me: if this shot were part of a scene in a movie, what would happen here? Read the Full Story at Glimpses of South Pasadena
