Glimpses of S. Pas.


Roots…

Roots…

…they grow deep in South Pasadena. Here, they spread out beneath a towering heritage tree outside the library. Kids like to climb over the whole layout as if it were kind of Middle Earth jungle gym. I’ve seen a few high school kids hanging out in the shade. I like to perch there with a […]

Camera Crossing

I’ve posted before about the abundance of film and television location shooting in South Pasadena. (Even in my own neighborhood!) Here, crew members wheel a camera across El Centro at Meridian. I bumped into three separate productions around town on the day I snapped this shot. Some may find it annoying, but I love it […]
