Today is the first of the month, and that means it’s Theme Day for participating City Daily Photo bloggers. This month’s theme is Passageway. What better subject that the heavily traversed crosswalk on Mission at Meridian? I may be over analyzing, but I think there is a lesson to be learned from that happy little […]

Stepping it Up

Stepping it Up

You’ll find these lovely stairs on the west side of South Pasadena High School. The building is so art deco chic it reminds me of an old Busby Berkeley musical. In fact, these steps really need to be the backdrop of something musical. Can’t you imagine a scrappy young couple marching down arm in arm, […]

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

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, […]
