Zen Tuesday: #9

Zen Tuesday: #9

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. But as this is not Zen Monday but Zen Tuesday–hell, we can do whatever we want. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Theme Day: Public Transportation

Theme Day: Public Transportation

(Tomorrow will be Zen Tuesday)     photo courtesy of Pasadena Adjacent If you live in Pasadena you’ve seen this artfully decorated bus. Take a look at all the Pasadena icons: starting at left, you see the Thinker (one of Rodin’s at the Norton Simon Museum), then the Colorado Street Bridge and the LA River. [...]

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween

This guy looks happy, right? John and I saw him in the window of The Kitchen, a gourmet catering and gifty place in that bonus part of Pasadena that’s so far west on Colorado Blvd. it’s almost in Eagle Rock–but it’s still ours. This is it. Pasadena (even the bonus part) is decked out for [...]

Acknowledgment

Acknowledgment

It’s about time I acknowledged that Halloween’s coming tomorrow. Better late than never. I like this holiday because of its roots in the Celtic holiday of Samhain (the Wikipedia article is well-researched). We’ve strayed from those origins, but there’s still something pagan about dressing up as someone you’re not and running around in the dark, [...]

PDP/PPM Books Contest, week 2

PDP/PPM Books Contest, week 2

I love the faded writing on some of the buildings in Old Town. This says “Keller Bros.” something. I can’t make it out. I wonder what kind of business the Keller brothers had in there. We’re looking at the back of the Braley Building on Raymond Avenue. The Braley has housed a lot of businesses: [...]

It’s All High Tech To Me

It’s All High Tech To Me

I was going to post a photo of the entryway to the Guggenheim building at Caltech, but I like this shot better. Like yesterday’s photo, I took took this one inside on the second floor. From the two shots, yesterday’s and today’s, you’d might guess the Guggenheim is a sleek, 21st century building but the [...]

Serene Science

Serene Science

Speaking of happy accidents, today I came across this photo in my files. I knew I had taken it at Caltech, but couldn’t remember exactly where. One day nearly two years ago (and I assure you I’m not digressing), Boz and I met a woman walking her dog. I had my camera, as always, and [...]

Happy Accidents

Happy Accidents

This isn’t at all what I was trying to photograph, but some accidents are happy ones: like how I ended up at a temp job in the 90′s with a supervisor who is still my best client; like when my regular doctor wasn’t available and the nurse practitioner diagnosed and treated my problem that he [...]

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 [...]
