Ce N’est Pas Une Tomate

Ce N’est Pas Une Tomate

Is it a picture of a tomato on the kitchen counter or is it art?  I’m not fishing for compliments. I’m trying to make a decision. When does an object become representative of something else? Where does art happen? On the kitchen counter? In the camera? On the computer screen? In the eyes of the […]

Guest Author, John Vorhaus: Those Who Can Do

I recently came across a post by John Vorhaus at Writer Unboxed. When he mentioned his upcoming workshop at the Courtyard by Marriott in Old Town Pasadena, I wrote to him right away. Not only is John from the San Gabriel Valley, he’s also a prolific author and an experienced writing teacher. Please welcome today’s […]

It’s a given that we run, bike, hike, ride our horses and walk our dogs in the Arroyo Seco. We also park our world-famous football stadium, our childrens’ museum and our aquatic center there. And around those popular people magnets, we park our cars. The parking lots need occasional maintenance, and I joined a clean-up […]

Zen Monday: #154

Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo’s about. Just write your thoughts as they come to you. If you put them here in the comments, we can all read them. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Vintage Altadena

Vintage Altadena

Ah…ah…ah… Ah… Ahhcross the street from Tangles and Locks, you’ll often see these babies parked in all their vintage glory (and I do mean glory) at what is now called Paulie’s Service Station. (Used to be Ronnie’s Automotive. Enlarge the top photo to see the Ronnie’s sign.) I went back and forth about whether or […]

Tangles and Locks

Tangles and Locks

Tangles and Locks barbershop, at 2025 N. Lake Avenue, has been an Altadena business for over 23 years. I’ve been meaning to stop by for a long time–not 23 years but a while, nonetheless–because I wanted to take a picture of the suit of armor standing in the back corner. Yesterday I was in the […]

Bet and Breakfast

Bet and Breakfast

Here’s the view you’re missing if you’re not having breakfast at Clocker’s Corner. Actually, this is only a peek into the panorama of peace for eyes and brain as you watch the horses take their morning workout. From the deck overlooking the Santa Anita Racetrack you can’t see much but the track itself, and beyond […]

Bougainvillea Killer

Bougainvillea Killer

This wildflower grows alongside one of my favorite mountain trails. I’d like to grow things like this in my yard, along quiet (if short) pathways. The holiday and Karin Bugge’s recent Patch article (Why You Should Plant a Native Garden) inspired me to work in the garden yesterday. I want to create a native plant […]
