Arroyo Gotham

I ran an errand in downtown Pasadena yesterday morning and parked in a lot I hadn’t used before. As it was new to me, and because I need new pictures of Pasadena every day, I looked around for shots. I do it obsessively: Would that make a good photo? How would I shoot it? What [...]

Artistic Mews

Artistic Mews

This cat knew how alluring she looked in her pink window. She posed for several photos while I stood on the sidewalk and snapped away. Briefly, with Kitty as my muse, I became the Annie Liebovitz of Northwest Pasadena, the Ruth Bernhard, the Louise Dahl-Wolfe! Oh yeah, Kitty. Gorgeous. Gorgeous! Just move a little into [...]

Zen Monday: #127

Zen Monday: #127

It’s Zen Monday, 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 I stay out of the comments box until the end of the day to avoid [...]

All These Things And More

All These Things And More

Yesterday: while the blimp rolled and hummed above the stadium; while the prop jet circled the San Gabriel Valley and more small planes flew higher; while crews cleared Colorado Blvd. of tons of parade debris, while thousands enjoyed the 127th annual Rose Bowl Game with its excitement and noise… …we had this. One of the [...]

Theme Day: Photo of the Year 2010

Theme Day: Photo of the Year 2010

City Daily Photo bloggers share a theme day the first of every month, and the first of the year we like to bring out our proudest moments. This is my favorite shot of last year, posted September 22nd: the Occidental College men’s cross country runners at Hahamongna Watershed Park. They remind me of Pheidippides, or [...]

Happy New Year, the Pasadena Way

Happy New Year, the Pasadena Way

photo by John Sandel Please do click on this panorama to enlarge it. John took it with his iPhone inside the Rosemont Pavilion last night, while volunteers and professionals worked feverishly to finish a dozen Tournament of Roses parade floats. Actually, not feverishly. Fever implies heat and it was chilly in there. But they were [...]

Elbow, Elbow, Wrist, Wrist

Elbow, Elbow, Wrist, Wrist

I took these photos yesterday afternoon from my car at the corner of Colorado Boulevard, waiting to make the left turn onto North Orange Grove. See? Red light. Perfectly safe. Workers were still preparing for Saturday’s Tournament of Roses festivities. Most of the bleachers are ready, but this pavilion needed a few final touches. It [...]

Glad to See You

Glad to See You

I hope the tourists arriving in Pasadena for the Tournament of Roses parade and the Rose Bowl game are enjoying themselves and finding lots to do. Although I’m glad they’re here I admit, since the Rose Bowl is west of me and Colorado Blvd. is south, unless I’m forced in other directions I’m going only [...]

Resolve

Resolve

Do you make new year’s resolutions? I do. My reason for making them is to keep them, so (here’s my logic:) I make resolutions that are possible to keep. 2010′s new year’s resolution was to finish my novel. It’s done done done. Of course just because the book is written doesn’t mean it’s published. I [...]
