South Pasadena: Classic Car Heaven

You guys know I can never resist an old car.  Don’t believe me?  Just look at how many I’ve found: Take a joyride with me through South Pas… and marvel at all the vintage cars. South Pasadena was part of transportation history — a destination for early rail as well as home to one of […]

This is my favorite concrete doodle in South Pasadena.  My first? Who’d have guessed? (I actually like that second one so much, I put it on a few things at my store.  Have a look.) For more little South Pas details, have a look at my video below. It’s all in the details… Feel free […]

South Pasadena Abstract #3

Okay, so this might not be technically abstract, but file it under modern, which is close. I love the South Pasadena Craftsmans and Victorians … but the mid-century modern homes in Monterey Hills are also wonderful.  These ginormous doors really sum up that middle of the 20th Century optimism, don’t they? I’m all about finding […]

South Pasadena Abstract #2

River rock as modern art?  Yes!  At least that’s what I see when I focus closely.
