Zen Monday: #118

Zen Monday: #118

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. I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something odd or silly. And unless I absolutely must say something, I stay out of the comments box until the [...]

Time Skies

Time Skies

Looking north to Pasadena from Raymond Hill. On a fall day in Illinois when I was about fifteen, the skies were like these skies–cloudy and restless. It was my first year in high school. The route home from school was about a mile, maybe a little more. I could have cut through the neighborhoods to [...]

Fun With Flowers

Fun With Flowers

We rarely get driving rain in the Los Angeles basin–the kind that pelts buckets and makes you pull off the road because you can’t see. We do get rain, however. (We’d almost forgotten it.) This past week we had several days of constant, gentle showers. The drought-dry soil just drank it up and all the [...]

PDP/PPM Books Contest, week 1

PDP/PPM Books Contest, week 1

Honestly, I don’t know what this is. It isn’t a gravestone, but I took the photo at a cemetery. We don’t have cemeteries in Pasadena, did you know that? Not a single one. That may be disappointing for anyone who loves Pasadena so much they’d like to remain here for eternity. However, there are several [...]

Locals Only

Locals Only

The skies should be clear today for Locals Only Thursday in Old Town. Today’s the day to get your shopping done. Locals Only Thursdays rewards people who live and/or work in Pasadena for spending their money here. And why not? You might as well put money into the local economy where it can do you [...]

Aerial

I took this photo last year at about this time, then forgot about it. I ran across it last night, messed with the color and contrast, and came up with this. I’m not sure what to say about it except I like it. Yes, I took it in Pasadena. It’s not an aerial shot. I [...]

The Real Thing

The Real Thing

This moss-covered bust of Shakespeare stands (where else?) in the Shakespeare garden at the Huntington Library and Gardens. He looks like a friendly, handsome guy, doesn’t he? Maybe, maybe not. The Huntington owns many fine portraits. I especially admire those by the great Sir Joshua Reynolds, who knew how to make a likeness look like [...]

Good Souls

Good Souls

This is Boz. We’re not sure of his history but after having lived with him for 7 1/2 years I can tell you it was probably something like this: he was loved and well treated. One day, someone left a gate open or a door unlatched. Boz got out and wandered. Dogs are like that. [...]

Patch

Patch

East courtyard at Baranger Studios You may have heard about these new, hyperlocal news websites going up called Patch.com. There’s SouthPasadena.Patch.com and Altadena.Patch.com and who knows what else. Patch, owned by AOL/Time Warner, is going into small-ish communities around the country. We won’t be getting one in Pasadena. Some of our best local bloggers are [...]
