Work Perk

Work Perk

I almost posted more muted grays and I thought, “enough already!” It’s time we had some color around this here blog! So here it is, apropos of nothing. If you work at PCN, the Pasadena Community Network, with studios at Hen’s Teeth Square, you have regular access to these jawbreakers. If you don’t work there, [...]

Well I Love That Dirty Water

Well I Love That Dirty Water

photo by John Sandel Here’s another local construction project: the Casting Pond is getting a facelift. I love John’s iPhone shot; we’re looking south, viewing the pond along its western flank. Boz was disappointed to see the empty pond in the Lower Arroyo yesterday, partly because there’s no more stinky water and especially because no [...]

A New Noise

A New Noise

The new theater for A Noise Within, the classical theater company soon to be moving to Pasadena from faraway Glendale, is rising atop the Stuart Pharmaceuticals Building like a layer on a concrete cake. A rendering of what the interior will look like accompanies William Goldstein’s article on Hometown Pasadena. In fact, HtP’s been covering [...]

Nudge

Nudge

I don’t know what I initially meant to photograph here–the flowers, probably. Boz, who often accompanies me when I’m shooting, is never coy about his feelings. He’s patient, but he lets me know when he thinks I have enough shots and it’s time to move on. He’s usually right. Read the Full Story at Pasadena [...]

Cut Your Grass

Cut Your Grass

Apparently I’m not the only one in Pasadena who wants to kill my grass. The big room at the Pasadena Convention Center was packed last Saturday for Pasadena Water and Power’s “Cut Your Grass” workshop. The morning was led by the energetic Tim Wheeler, horticulturalist extraordinaire, who I remembered from an irrigation workshop I attended [...]

Castaways

Castaways

Yesterday, my friend of 23 years took me out for a belated birthday lunch at the Castaway in Burbank. This is a place where you go for the views. The view here is to the southwest overlooking Burbank, Forest Lawn and Griffith Park (the hills in the distance). At night it’s all lit up (not [...]

Wild on Walnut

Wild on Walnut

When East of Allen‘s Michael Coppess emailed me about the wildflowers on Walnut, I knew just what he was talking about. A couple of blocks’ worth of beautiful flowers are opening up along the north side of the street between Kinneola and Daisy Avenues, and he thought I might like to photograph them. Did I [...]

Theme Day: Edges

Theme Day: Edges

This isn’t a photo about edges any more than any other photo is about edges. I had planned to post something else. But yesterday I posted about the Japanese Garden at the Huntington Library and that got me thinking about Japan, its crises, and the edges we live on. The edges we live on in [...]

No Japanese Garden?

No Japanese Garden?

How ever will we manage? If I’d only read my Huntington Library Calendar when it first arrived, I wouldn’t be telling you this at the last minute: “Beginning April 4, the Japanese Garden will be closed to visitors through next spring so that renovations can begin to this much loved, 99-year-old landscape.” So if you [...]
