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 [...]

Sandwiches by Connal

Sandwiches by Connal

We were hungry, and as is often the case we couldn’t bring ourselves to cook. All we wanted was a sandwich. What we got was neighborhood regulars regaling us with recommendations (“Ask for well-done fries, they do ‘em a little light–you’ll learn…”) and stories (“Did you see that youtube video…”) and ideas for next time [...]

Any Minute Now

Any Minute Now

A hint of sunshine today. A hint of heat. It’s going to get warm this week and I can’t wait. I love the days when you can leave the windows open. I love going for a walk without a sweater. I love sitting on the front porch with a glass of iced tea and a [...]

Zen Monday: #139

Zen Monday: #139

On Zen Monday, we experience the photo and share what we’ve learned in the comments. Well, I don’t. Monday’s your turn. (Your first Zen Monday? Tell us what the photo makes you think of or how it makes you feel. Say whatever comes to mind. There’s no right or wrong, no secret, no prize. Just [...]

A Million Blessed Events

A Million Blessed Events

I promised you some wet photos this weekend. At first glance the toad above seemed ungainly. Then I realized it was two toads–two toads in love. They’re graceful, considering. You don’t see toad sex every day. Well, maybe you do, but I don’t. What is the result of toad love? That would be a tadpole. Or [...]

Hat People

Hat People

Last night I went to the Pasadena Museum of History to see the hats. There was a reception for the Mad for Hats exhibit. Patt Morrison of KPCC was there; she spoke to the crowd and was brilliant as usual (off the cuff!). And everyone was wearing a hat. You don’t see a crowd like [...]

Aquatic Creatures

Aquatic Creatures

Remember the Last Day Project? Once a month for a year, I posted a photo taken from this spot, to catch the changing of the seasons. Never once did I catch anything like this. Go ahead, click the link and scroll down. The difference is amazing. Johnson field’s been soggy lately, but in my five [...]
