Whoosh

Whoosh

I was trying to make a “whoosh” with the camera, and I got this instead. It’s more of a “whu-uhp!…phhh.” I’m fine with that. Often, when I set out to create something, I have to let go of the outcome. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Pomegranate

Pomegranate

Wikipedia says pomegranate trees were introduced to California by the Spanish in 1769, to be exact. Someone must have kept a record of it. Wikipedia’s article doesn’t mention how long it took them (the pomegranates) to reach Pasadena. Our neighborhood pomegranates will be ready to eat in December or thereabouts. Tell that to this bug.

Victorian Pile

Victorian Pile

Someone once asked me for a photo of a Victorian mansion, as opposed to the usual Pasadena Craftsman. A “Victorian pile,” I think she said. Pasadena has them, but the fanciest ones are behind fences and foliage, hard to photograph without trespassing or at least being downright rude. But wait. How many times have I […]

Tool Talk

Tool Talk

I have a red wheelbarrow. I like it a lot. I don’t need a blue wheelbarrow but if I did I’d go to Altadena Hardware, because last time I was there they had a pile of wheelbarrows. I love hardware stores and we have many excellent ones in the Dena. Besides Altadena Hardware there’s Crown […]

Zen Monday: #158

Zen Monday: #158

In Zen, the emphasis is on learning through experience as opposed to books or lectures. Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and tells us what you’ve learned, rather than me lecturing you about it. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good book. It just happens that Monday is the day you […]

Imaginary Horses

Imaginary Horses

It’s the middle of August and southern California might be the only place in the country where the weather’s beautiful. We used to be the ones with the insufferably hot summers, but the last two years our summer days have been almost–almost cool. Folks are loving it. Me–you know me, I wear a sweater. Sundays […]

Throat-Clearing

Throat-Clearing

Just south of yesterday’s photo is this empty building. I had stopped to take pictures of the Bellefontaine Nursery building when this one gave a sharp whistle and said, “Hey! Take my picture, too.” I think this is the structure a friend of mine meant when she commented on Facebook about yesterday’s picture of the […]

Bellefontaine Nursery

Bellefontaine Nursery

This is one of those times when I find a picture of something I like and I figure I’ll post it, no big deal. Then I find out it’s got a story behind it. In this case, 72 years of Pasadena history. One of my favorite buildings in Pasadena houses the Bellefontaine Nursery at 838 […]

A-Movin’ Kinda Slow

A-Movin’ Kinda Slow

At first, this looked like a family had a good day at the beach or the city pool. Then something else entered my mind and wouldn’t leave. Something eerie. Something otherworldly. Something…wrong. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo
