I think there is a desk up there, right behind that window. And somewhere buried underneath a stack of papers is something — a coffee mug or perhaps a framed plaque — that says, “a clean desk is a sign of a sick mind.” What do you think? Read the Full Story at Glimpses of […]

I’ve always loved the way Southern California adds its own carefree, sunny spin on traditional architecture. Here we have a vine-covered English mansion … with sky blue trim. The arched door, the Tudor details and the overflowing roses in the flowerbeds are authentic examples of the period, but those windows! They add such panache. If […]

Conundrum

Conundrum

Think back to the kids’ magazines you had when you were growing up — there was always a page dedicated to brain teasers. The mazes and word scrambles were okay, but what I really liked were the illustrations of everyday objects with the challenge to “find what’s missing in this picture.” Sometimes the cat would […]

Hair Raising

As you may have already guessed, I love a bright red Mohawk. Maybe it’s because I never had the nerve to rock such a radical look. I barely dipped my toes into punk — when I was 15 and wore a trash bag and black lipstick to a Devo concert. That was 30 years ago, […]

Ellen’s Silkscreening

By day, you can’t beat Ellen’s for silkscreening, embroidery and promotional gear.

Ellen’s has been a San Gabriel Valley favorite since 1978, with an in-house […]

File this shot under Lomography, because I caught it when I set the camera to auto, waved it over my head and started snapping. Sometimes it pays not to think too much. Read the Full Story at Glimpses of South Pasadena

Los Minarets?

Los Minarets?

This cozy apartment building was built in 1928 — a time when architecture definitely tilted at windmills. I think it is still considered Spanish, even with those odd cut-outs. I’m not sure if they are supposed to be reminiscent of the turrets of St. Basil’s Cathedral or the domes from the Taj Mahal. Whatever the […]

Kyle was the type of guy who would give you the table off his back. Or… She watched as he walked away from her apartment. It wasn’t that the date had gone badly, just that he was such a total square. No? Okay, fine. Anyone else want to give it a try? Read the Full […]
