I’ve been charmed by the homes in South Pasadena ever since my husband and I actually bought one of them and moved here 8 years ago!  I made the video above several years ago, highlighting some of the varied and beautiful houses around town.  I’ve been busily shooting more home pictures, so there will be […]

Storybook House

Storybook House

Every time I think I’ve found a favorite house in South Pas, I find yet another one that I adore.  This one is right out of a fairytale, don’t you think? I’m in a South Pasadena Home Tour kind of mood these days, so look for more shots of picturesque homes.  It’s no wonder so […]

When a Utility Box is More Than Just a Utility Box

When a Utility Box is More Than Just a Utility Box

Have you wondered why all the utility boxes in downtown South Pas suddenly transformed into colorful works of art?  We have the South Pasadena Arts Council (SPARC) to thank for repurposing the dull box surfaces into whimsical public art pieces.  Here’s a quote from SPARC about the project: Traffic signal boxes, usually painted drab grey […]

So Many Parks, So Little Summer…

So Many Parks, So Little Summer…

Kicking it at South Pasadena parks… When Jon and I moved to South Pas 8 1/2 years ago, our daughter — who many longtime readers still think of as Little Bit — was only 2.  That meant many, many, MANY sunkissed afternoons spent in local parks.   Of all the choices in South Pas — […]

Mission Station

Mission Station

I haven’t taken the brand new Expo Line from downtown LA to the beach yet, but I’m already an old fan of South Pasadena’s Gold Line which now goes all the way out to Azusa and will eventually end up in Montclair.  I can’t resist taking pictures whenever I wait at Mission Station.  Those columns! […]

City with a View

City with a View

I love grand, sweeping panoramas. For a city of only a few square miles, South Pasadena has an amazing number of beautiful views. (I actually wrote about it for Patch a few years ago.) Sure, a postcard view is an easy shot for a photographer when all you have to do is point your camera […]

Taijitu Revisited

Taijitu Revisited

Duality fascinates me. I love the way two seemingly incongruous things can exist together in a kind of light/dark, up/down symbiosis. Just think about how boring life would be if we only had the angel on one shoulder demanding that we mind our manners and eat our vegetables. Without that little devil on the other […]

Welcome to South Pasadena

Welcome to South Pasadena

Welcome! You’ve found my little virtual front porch. For over four years, I posted a photo every day from South Pasadena — Los Angeles’ little town in the big city.  If you look through the archives you will find my daily musings, a few rants, a lot of history, some interesting little details and several […]
