Duarte Festival of Authors

Duarte Festival of Authors

I’m sorry if you missed it. Hell, I’m sorry I missed it for the last eight years. It was the 9th annual Duarte Festival of Authors, aptly named because it was indeed festive and there were indeed authors–lots and lots of authors. I wasn’t able to stay all day but I was able to enjoy […]

What, Yes, but Where, No.

What, Yes, but Where, No.

Now I know what it is, but I don’t know where. After our discussion on the first I have a pretty good idea this is a marker, but I forgot where I took the picture. Hahamongna, probably. Near the Devil’s Gate Dam, maybe. Does anyone know? Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Slip

Slip

…and one day the princess wandered away from the castle. She’d grown up aware of the surrounding forest. She knew the birds that flew along its outskirts and, on occasion, watched a timid deer peek from among the trees. This day, she was the one peeking across the divide between civilized and wild. Even at […]

Santa Catalina Branch Library

Santa Catalina Branch Library

I had so much fun showing you Pasadena’s branch libraries during Banned Books Week that I decided to keep going until I finish. I’ll sneak one in when you’re not looking for it. Ha! Library! Bet you didn’t expect THAT! This is the Santa Catalina Branch, perched on a slope next door to Longfellow School […]

Guest Author: Elizabeth Pomeroy

Guest Author: Elizabeth Pomeroy

Before it became fashionable to self-publish, Elizabeth Pomeroy formed her own publishing company–not just to publish her own books but important historical titles as well. Writer, editor, publisher, educator–it’s a wonder she finds time for it all. Please welcome today’s guest author, Elizabeth Pomeroy. Why I write: It was historic places that got me started […]

Break Time

Break Time

We have business to take care of this week on the blog, but first I need a break. I’ve decided to celebrate my caesura with these gentlemen and get in a few rounds of dominoes out back. The guys told me they were on their, uh, lacuna from work at The Kitchen for Exploring Foods […]

Zen Monday: #165

Zen Monday: #165

I took this picture across the street from a library. Here’s a second shot. Let’s say, for clarification: Zen Monday is the day you interpret the photo(s) instead of me telling you what I think it’s about, so please have at it. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Glimpse Her While You Can

Glimpse Her While You Can

Like most City Daily Photo bloggers, Laurie Allee didn’t know when she started where Glimpses of South Pasadena would take her. I think blogging takes us each to a different place, but maybe that’s not the right way to think about it. More likely it’s the blogger herself who steers, driving the blog like the […]

Theme Day: Mystery Object

Theme Day: Mystery Object

I was all ready to post another library and I remembered: today is City Daily Photo theme day! It’s a good thing I remembered because–well, I don’t know what would happen if I forgot, probably nothing, but it’s too late now. I know at least one person who can tell us where today’s mystery object […]

Hill Avenue Branch Library

Hill Avenue Branch Library

Confession: although the Hill Avenue Branch of the Pasadena library is my favorite, I’ve never been inside. I’ve judged this book by its cover. The building, designed by Marston, Van Pelt & Maybury, is the oldest in the Pasadena Public Library system. It opened May 6, 1925, thirteen days before construction began on the Central […]
