“The true harvest of my life is intangible – a little star dust caught, a portion of the rainbow I have clutched.” –Henry David Thoreau Read the Full Story at Glimpses of South Pasadena

Shakers: Nighthawks Style

This isn’t the first time South Pasadena has made me feel like imitating Edward Hopper. (This time my homage is a little more literal.) Read the Full Story at Glimpses of South Pasadena

Old World Charm

Old World Charm

It’s hard to imagine poor Walter Raymond back in 1934, fretting away his last days in the caretaker’s cottage of his magnificent Raymond Hotel, late on the mortgage and gripped with panic as the Depression brought financial ruin and a wrecking ball destroyed his creation… While the grand hotel has been gone for decades, the […]

Imagining the Rialto…

Imagining the Rialto…

Wouldn’t it be great if this were available right around the corner? Yesterday I took my family to see a special screening of Secret of the Wings at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. Secret of the Wings is the latest in Disney’s Fairies franchise, and I can’t imagine a more magical setting for a […]

Color Week #7 PURPLE

Color Week #7  PURPLE

Who knew a garage door could be so avant garde? I hope a garage band practices in there. Preferably one that samples old Edith Piaf with an accompanying vuvuzela… No? Well, it’s a perfect way to round out Color Week. Thanks for taking a break with me to look at our technicolor hometown. Read the […]

Color Week #5 GREEN

Color Week #5  GREEN

I’ve seen this guy and his posse wandering all over town, especially in the Arroyo adjacent neighborhoods and in Monterey Hills. Color week continues for a few more […]

Color Week #4 YELLOW

Color Week #4 YELLOW

Not that you would ever consider such a thing, but if you were to climb over the fence of the water tower at sunset you might see a view like this one. (I’m speculating, of course.) It’s Color Week this week at Glimpses. No black and white but everything else. Read the Full Story at […]

Color Week: #3 ORANGE

Color Week: #3  ORANGE

No jack o’ lantern could possibly be spookier than this sky after an autumn storm in Garfield Park. The ground was squishy with mud and the air felt like it had ice stuck to it, but the sky blazed. I’m using all the colors in the Crayola box for the next few days. Join me […]

Color Week: #2 PINK

Color Week: #2 PINK

In the pink? I’ll say. If you don’t think this is the most awesome, over-the-top proof positive that fairies exist and they are living right out in the open where everyone can find them, then you must either be colorblind or have no soul. This is more than pink. This is pink if it had […]
