Glimpses of S. Pas.


Rectangles and Blue

Rectangles and Blue

One of the things I love most about abstract art is the way its world is rendered in shapes and colors. We get to fill in the particulars, imagine the story or transcend the figurative. I remember once standing in front of a Rothko painting with Shanna. “I don’t get it,” I said. “It’s a […]

Consolation Prize

Consolation Prize

Friend of GOSP (and intrepid vintage car scout) Dbdubya alerted me to the fact that a pristine 1940 Chevy was parked on El Centro this morning. But by the time I got there… it was gone. I drove around to see if I could find it but this old truck found me, instead. Read the […]

Settings: Part 23

It’s that time again, would-be filmmakers and general tall tale tellers! If this were the setting for a scene in a movie, what would happen here? Read the Full Story at Glimpses of South Pasadena

The parking lot was empty when I drove up to make a deposit at the ATM. I turned around and saw this mysterious car. I never heard an engine or a car door slam. It was as if it just appeared… Maybe I should have looked inside. Read the Full Story at Glimpses of South […]

Why am I posting a picture of my cat Mirabelle? Well, she is a resident of South Pasadena. (A very pampered, very spoiled resident…) But this picture is also my attempt to approximate some of the wonderful shots of another San Gabriel Valley resident named Kat — the blogmistress of Pasadena, 91105 and Beyond. Kat’s […]

Going Up

Going Up

Remember this image of an empty lot? What a difference a few months (and, dare I hope for it, a recovering economy) can make! Those in the know tell me this structure on Fremont will have mixed retail space on the bottom floor and residential units above. The restored/refurbished ComericA bank building will be finished […]

Bippity Boppity BOOOOO!

Bippity Boppity BOOOOO!

I’d be a little nervous if I were the Prince … one wrong move and she will CUT you with that glass slipper. Read the Full Story at Glimpses of South Pasadena
