Enlightened Art

Maybe you see Tibetan monks creating a sacred sand mandala every day, but since I don’t I found this enthralling. These monks are visiting Pasadena from the Drepung Loseling Phukhang Khangtsen monastery in southern India. The monastery was founded 500 years ago in Tibet, but when the Chinese occupied Tibet, as you may know, the [...]

A Jones for Coffee (I’m sure they’ve heard that one before)

A Jones for Coffee (I’m sure they’ve heard that one before)

A fervent discussion over at Pasadena, 91105 and Beyond tells me coffee is of enough importance to–well, to spur a fervent discussion. Coffee is also important enough to spawn workshops. When I picked up the brochure at Jones Roasters I thought this was something new, but Jones has been offering Coffee Workshops since 1994. They [...]

Zen Tuesday: #9

Zen Tuesday: #9

Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo’s about. But as this is not Zen Monday but Zen Tuesday–hell, we can do whatever we want. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Theme Day: Public Transportation

Theme Day: Public Transportation

(Tomorrow will be Zen Tuesday)     photo courtesy of Pasadena Adjacent If you live in Pasadena you’ve seen this artfully decorated bus. Take a look at all the Pasadena icons: starting at left, you see the Thinker (one of Rodin’s at the Norton Simon Museum), then the Colorado Street Bridge and the LA River. [...]

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween

This guy looks happy, right? John and I saw him in the window of The Kitchen, a gourmet catering and gifty place in that bonus part of Pasadena that’s so far west on Colorado Blvd. it’s almost in Eagle Rock–but it’s still ours. This is it. Pasadena (even the bonus part) is decked out for [...]

Acknowledgment

Acknowledgment

It’s about time I acknowledged that Halloween’s coming tomorrow. Better late than never. I like this holiday because of its roots in the Celtic holiday of Samhain (the Wikipedia article is well-researched). We’ve strayed from those origins, but there’s still something pagan about dressing up as someone you’re not and running around in the dark, [...]

PDP/PPM Books Contest, week 2

PDP/PPM Books Contest, week 2

I love the faded writing on some of the buildings in Old Town. This says “Keller Bros.” something. I can’t make it out. I wonder what kind of business the Keller brothers had in there. We’re looking at the back of the Braley Building on Raymond Avenue. The Braley has housed a lot of businesses: [...]

It’s All High Tech To Me

It’s All High Tech To Me

I was going to post a photo of the entryway to the Guggenheim building at Caltech, but I like this shot better. Like yesterday’s photo, I took took this one inside on the second floor. From the two shots, yesterday’s and today’s, you’d might guess the Guggenheim is a sleek, 21st century building but the [...]

Serene Science

Serene Science

Speaking of happy accidents, today I came across this photo in my files. I knew I had taken it at Caltech, but couldn’t remember exactly where. One day nearly two years ago (and I assure you I’m not digressing), Boz and I met a woman walking her dog. I had my camera, as always, and [...]

Happy Accidents

Happy Accidents

This isn’t at all what I was trying to photograph, but some accidents are happy ones: like how I ended up at a temp job in the 90′s with a supervisor who is still my best client; like when my regular doctor wasn’t available and the nurse practitioner diagnosed and treated my problem that he [...]
