Urban Meets Wild

Urban Meets Wild

Not a complicated photo. (This one loaded really fast, that’s how I know.) It’s one last shot to complete the story about our evening at Hahamongna Watershed Park (see the previous two posts). You should probably click on it to enlarge it. Or at least I wish you would, otherwise it’s just a little splash […]

Even Better

Even Better

If you’ve been on Facebook with a Pasadena friend in the last couple of days you know we were treated to a magnificent sunset Sunday night. Everyone posted photos of it. John, Bellis and I walked Hahamongna with our friends Karen and David and our various dogs. The sky changed and changed and changed again, […]

Not the Last Day, After All

Not the Last Day, After All

Word has it that the Devil’s Gate Dam interim silt removal project is complete. If so, all the silt has been moved to Johnson Field from the dam. For now. It’s not the whole project by a long shot. There will be an environmental impact report before the rest of the work is done. I […]

Zen Monday: #161

Zen Monday: #161

Today’s a holiday, but Zen Monday isn’t taking the day off. In Zen, one learns through experience rather than 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. Please leave your thoughts in the comments box and enjoy. Read […]

The Best Laid Pipes

The Best Laid Pipes

Boz and I had planned to hike yesterday. We were going to head to Johnson Field, where this pipe stands. Or stood. We’re not sure. A lot’s been going on at Johnson Field lately, and for all we know this above-ground access to water has been buried under the mounds of silt being moved from […]

Noble Beast

Noble Beast

photo by John Sandel The noble beast, the pompetus of love, the elder statesman of his radius, has been suffering neighborhood walks for an entire month. A month! Walking on cement! With his delicate toes! I remind him that some dogs don’t get a daily walk, but he’s spoiled. He remembers hikes in the mountains. […]

Ubiquitous Utilities

Ubiquitous Utilities

At first I didn’t see pipes like these. Then I noticed one. It stuck out above ground. Someone had painted it a bright color. Then I saw them everywhere. I mean, they are everywhere. All different colors and sizes and shapes. I exagerrate. They’re not everywhere. I don’t have one at my house, for example. […]

Theme Day: Perspective

Theme Day: Perspective

Today’s theme at City Daily Photo is “perspective.” That can be a technique used in art and architecture to show distance or elevation. It can also be how you look at things. For instance, this could be a hole in a hedge, through which you view a field of small avocado trees being watered by […]

Burnt

Burnt

Growing up in Illinois there were days when it was so cold you couldn’t go outside, or if you did, you bundled up in extra socks and waterproof boots. You added layers under your hooded parka, a scarf around your face to protect your nose and eyes, and mittens–not gloves–because you needed your fingers to […]
