Weekend

There’s a lot going on this weekend in Pasadena, especially Saturday. 1. The Doo Dah Parade. Eau mai gawd. 2. Arlington Garden‘s sixth anniversary celebration. 3. The grand opening of Reese’s Retreat (9am-1pm). 4. And if you’re bookish (I’m bookish!–and you thought I was American) there’s the LA Times Festival of Books, not in Pasadena [...]

Geology Lesson #3

Geology Lesson #3

It’s been a while since Pasadena Daily Photo’s resident geologist paid us a visit. Earlier this week, Becca brought her geology students to the Arroyo Seco on a field trip. I asked her to tell me about it: “The students are enrolled in physical geology at Mt. San Antonio College (Mt. SAC). This field trip [...]

Guest Post: Amy Ratcliffe, Geek With Curves

For the third month in a row, I’m happy to present a guest post by a local writer. Today, meet Amy Ratcliffe. I love her story. She wanted to be a writer. She thought about it. Then she decided to make it happen and bam!  I think you’ll like Amy as much as I do. [...]

Just a Bunch of Guys

Just a Bunch of Guys

Meeting these guys and taking their picture might be a turning point in my blogging career. They were getting ready to leave just as I pulled into the gas station to fill up. I’ve been shy about asking people if I can take their photo. I could have let them go. But I grabbed my [...]

Heads up for those who follow the Hahamongna happenings: A special meeting of the Hahamongna Watershed Park Advisory Committee will be held on Tuesday, April 26th at 6PM at [...]

April 23rd

April 23rd

It’s Shakespeare’s birthday. I thought I should say “Happy Birthday, Will!” seeing as we–okay, I–so ill-used him on the blog merely a week ago. It’s also St. George’s Day in the United Kingdom. From what I understand it’s not exactly a big deal on that precious stone set in the silver sea, but it makes [...]

Impasse

Impasse

I walked out onto the Colorado Street Bridge yesterday to see a memorial. I had driven by earlier and seen flowers and balloons, so I went back on foot. Knowing someone had jumped from the bridge on April 12th, I thought it might be a tribute for him. But now I don’t know. Near where [...]

My life was profoundly changed when a friend brought me a bag of the famous Sea Salt Caramels from the Little Flower Candy Company. You may already know you can find an amazing variety of candies there. But did you also know you can sit inside the charming shop and sip a cup of coffee [...]

The Gamble House

The Gamble House

photo of the Gamble House pond by John Sandel Oh, gush gush gush. After nearly six years of Pasadena living, John and I finally visited a Pasadena icon–thanks to the generous invitation of the Public Relations Manager at the Gamble House. We loved it. Our tour was so interesting I want to go back again [...]
