Different Route

Different Route

You might happen to turn your car up Sierra Bonita Avenue looking for a cut-off from Washington Blvd. You might want a different way, a new route. As you’re driving along this residential street you might happen to glance to the side and see a front yard–well, a garden–well, a folly, you might call it–a […]

Parker-Mayberry Bridge

Parker-Mayberry Bridge

The Parker-Mayberry Bridge is a small, graceful bridge under the colossal, graceful and more famous Colorado Street Bridge. The Parker-Mayberry doesn’t have a Wikipedia page, nor do many links point in its direction. Scroll down to the second photo in this post by Pasadena Public Information Officer Ann Erdman to see how the two bridges […]

It happens from time to time that I bring a blank brain with me to the blank screen. As I write, it’s the night before today. I’ve spent what little mental capital I had, sitting in front of a computer all day typing numbers. I don’t have anything left with which to write intelligently, about […]

Zen Monday: #144

Zen Monday: #144

Does it seem like Zen Monday comes around faster and faster lately? Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and tell us what you’ve learned. If you’ve been lurking, I hope today’s the day you’ll jump in. Is this your first Zen Monday? Just say what the picture makes you think of or […]

Theme Day: Mailbox

Theme Day: Mailbox

Today’s City Daily Photo theme is “Mailbox,” which can be interpreted in more imaginative ways than I came up with. That’s okay, the homeowners here did the interpreting for me. I love their slightly twisted, “approved by the postmaster general” U.S. mailbox. I wonder what they’re commenting on, exactly. Not that I want to know. […]

Idea

Idea

Sometimes you have a hundred ideas and no luxury to write them all down. Sometimes an idea for a story is a long time in coming. Sometimes you wonder if the idea for the story you just wrote is the last one you’re ever going to have. Or maybe that’s just me. Then I sit […]

Weekend

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 […]
