I can’t tell you how many times I’ve taken a picture of this alley off Mission. The color scheme makes me think of something by Hockney. Like this. Or maybe this. Read the Full Story at Glimpses of South Pasadena

Five is Good!

Five is Good!

Everybody kick up your heels! Little Bit is five years old today! Happiest birthday … my beautiful, brilliant, wildhearted poet child. (Don’t miss this portrait of the birthday girl and yours truly — posted today by my dear friend Virginia at Birmingham Daily Photo!) Read the Full Story at Glimpses of South Pasadena

Don Draper on Line One…

Don Draper on Line One…

It’s no wonder Mad Men films so much in South Pasadena. Where else can you find mysteriously retro (and undeniably groovy) business names like this one? (Wouldn’t it be cool if this place were somehow working with this one?) I’m sure there is a very respectable, very state-of-the-art company operating here. But allow me to […]

Music lovers of all ages boogied down yesterday at the South Pasadena 2010 Eclectic Music Festival and Art Walk. Stages and special events were set up all over the South Pas Mission West District.

Mixed Media

Finding inspiration in the ordinary… I’ve touched on it here before. And then again. Sometimes all it takes to uplift your spirit is to look down at a wonderfully decrepit street, where the cracks have been there long enough for moss to grow and the city markings (gas lines? sewer?) look like tags from a […]

Settings: Part 26

Settings: Part 26

I hadn’t planned on playing my favorite game again so soon, but when I drove past the library and saw the tree from yesterday’s post being used as a backdrop for yet another South Pas film shoot, I couldn’t resist. Since this actually is a setting for a movie, what do you think the scene […]
