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 […]

A Many Splendored Thing

Even the rooftop of Wild Thyme has been struck by Cupid’s arrow! It’s a good thing. As I’ve said before, I love Valentine’s Day. My husband proposed to me on Valentine’s Day, so I’m particularly sentimental. I love every hokey, over-the-top, shameless bit of it. (And the chocolates aren’t bad, either.) I know, you don’t […]

Okay, everybody, it’s time for another round of my favorite game. If this mysterious private drive were the setting for a scene in a movie … what would happen here? Read the Full Story at Glimpses of South Pasadena

About to Rain…

About to Rain…

Yesterday was beautiful, but you could sense an undercurrent — like a minor chord disrupting a melody. The weatherman says it’s about to rain, but nobody sings it better than Neil Young. Read the Full Story at Glimpses of South Pasadena

Free Association

Free Association

At first I thought the sign said Tree and I wondered … was this some sort of plein air organic sculpture exhibit? Then I realized it said Free, and I thought why on earth would anyone want a free tree stump? Maybe it was meant to be a deeper message. Maybe it was pointing out […]
