Itchy

I don’t know why I like to travel in the fall, but I do. All year long I’m fine right where I am, then November comes around and bam! I’ve just gotta get out of town. And stay out! You’d think the cops were after me or something. Put me on a plane and send […]

It Doesn’t Take Much

It Doesn’t Take Much

Boz doesn’t care about petty politics. He doesn’t know about choices, good or bad. He likes to run in open spaces and Johnson Field is fine with him just as it is. “Boz,” I said, “the field is a dumping ground for silt!” Boz likes silt. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Each day, Max Hengst sees things most of us will never see. He felt he had to write about them. He told me he’s a little concerned some people might be uncomfortable with the profanity he uses in the book. But to write about his work without using profanity might just be dishonest, and Max […]

Fantasy Day

Fantasy Day

I was raised on library books and outdoor play. Sometimes the family watched Bonanza together and, when the Beatles were on, The Ed Sullivan Show. We weren’t allowed to watch TV as long as the sun was up. But some people grew up watching TV. A subset of those people, who were weaned on TV […]

Zen Monday: #170

Zen Monday: #170

Zen Monday’s the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo’s about. There’s no competition, no right or wrong. Just have fun.I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something odd or silly. Or all of those things, if I’m lucky. […]

Apropos

Apropos

This picture is apropos of nothing, a shot I took on Pasadena’s east side maybe two years ago on a blustery day a lot like yesterday. At the time, this was at the back of a furniture store. It may still be at the back of a furniture store, but a lot can change in […]

Still Life with Dog Paw

Still Life with Dog Paw

I’ve been wanting to post more pictures of Boz, but I know myself. I’m like people who show photo after photo of their kids–it’s okay for the first couple of shots but very soon the pictures are cute only to the parents. I am not Boz’s parent. I’m more like his artistic partner. He’s always […]

We should commemorate today because it’s Veteran’s day. We should commemorate the date if only because it happens just once a century. If you head up to Memorial Park at Walnut and Raymond today at 10:30 you can be part of the Veteran’s Day commemoration. I predict music, a flyover and no rain. But don’t […]

Movie Star Home

Movie Star Home

Hell of a back yard, isn’t it? I’m not sure why I find this house compelling except it looks like something from a movie. A scary movie, maybe. Can’t you picture it all lit up at night? Or maybe we’ll keep the sun and have some naked hipsters dancing on the deck, like in a […]

Librarians Rule

Librarians Rule

looking out over the north entrance of Pasadena’s Central Library It’s no secret I’m a fan of libraries and, by extension, librarians. You can imagine my glee when I received the press release with the following headline: CALIFORNIA‚ÄôS LIBRARIANS TO GATHER IN PASADENA TO DISCUSS THE CHANGING WORLD OF LIBRARY SERVICES It’s not like I’m […]
