The weekend was good preparation for tomorrow’s freaky fun. I saw kids of all sizes, all over town, heading out in their costumes. Some were on their way to parties, some were shopping, one was just going on a hike with devil horns on her head. Here’s your quiz: take a look at this decorated […]

On the sidewalk outside of Tiffany on a Friday night in Old Town, these guys sang a capella harmonies. Song after song, they sounded great and I wasn’t the only one who thought so. The crowd loved them. People put money in their bucket. And this kid could not stop dancing. The more he danced, […]

Chasing the Shot

Last weekend I saw a wonderful exhibit of Vivian Maier’s street photography. You can see it, too, at the Stephen Cohen Gallery in Los Angeles, through November 12th. The fascinating story of Maier’s life and the discovery of her photos has intrigued me since it came to light. I love how you can see her, […]

I love One Colorado. It’s a beautiful part of Old Town Pasadena where late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century historic buildings surround a courtyard. Rather than have these wonderful structures torn down they’ve been refurbished and are now shops and restaurants. Even the One Colorado parking is okay. It’s across the street at Union and Fair […]

When out-of-town bloggers visit–especially Francophile bloggers–the search is on for macarons. (You know better than to ask me about macaroons, right?) This time we tried Lette on Fair Oaks. Pretty! And lots of flavors. I figure you’re supposed to eat them. Apparently no, not if you’re a photo-blogger. (Pictured: Virginia of Birmingham, Alabama Daily Photo […]

Zen Monday is the day you interpret the picture and I stay out of the comments box (if I can stand to keep my mouth shut). Take a look at the photo and tell us what you think. Although sometimes it gets competitive there are no prizes (except bragging rights), so just have fun. I […]

Ballooning Over Pasadena

Blog friends Kathryn, Tash, Katie and Virginia are visiting this weekend. Yesterday Kevin McCollister of East of West LA joined us for the Vivian Maier photo exhibit at the Stephen Cohen Gallery, then we had lunch at the Farmers’ Market in Los Angeles. You can’t beat that place for photo ops. Because most of us […]

Let’s Get Archaeological

Let’s Get Archaeological

Archaeology asksWho built it?When?Why?What does it teach us about them? About ourselves?Should we preserve it?Can we?How? Can you think of other questions archaeology asks, and answers? Today is the first ever National Archaeology Day, a celebration of archaeology and the thrill of discovery. The closest event to us is in Pacific Palisades, but you can […]
