Zen Monday: #120

Welcome to Zen Monday. It’s 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 [...]

Devil’s Mirror

Devil’s Mirror

Congratulations to Mister Earl! He’s this week’s winner of the PDP/PPM Books Contest. Like everyone else who entered, Mister Earl guessed correctly the answer to Friday’s question: Benjamin Eaton named the Devil’s Gorge. Benjamin Eaton was an early settler in our area and he was so much more; his genius for transporting water made it [...]

Devil’s Gorge

Devil’s Gorge

As long as we’re visiting the devil’s head rock formation in the Devil’s Gorge below the Devil’s Gate Dam, I figured we’d get a look at this actual gate in what we might call the devil’s throat–his gorge, if you will. This is part of the water system in the dam, although I’m not sure [...]

PDP/PPM Books Contest, week 4

PDP/PPM Books Contest, week 4

Local Pasadenamites (as opposed to what–international Pasadanish?) will immediately recognize this rock formation, even though it’s covered with gunite. It’s our famous devil of the Devil’s Gate Dam. This rock formation gave the dam its name. But who named the “Devil’s Gate” gorge? That’s this week’s contest question. Once again, I’ve linked you to the [...]

Killing Time

Killing Time

I always have a book with me, in case I have to wait–in the doctor’s office, in line, at the repair shop. Except when I forget my book, then I always have a camera with me. And there is always, always something to photograph, no matter where you are. Read the Full Story at Pasadena [...]

Anonymous Chairs

Anonymous Chairs

I was thinking of other photographers when I took this picture. One photographer is Virginia from Birmingham and Paris. I made a comment on one of Virginia’s Paris posts that a certain chair seems to be ubiquitous in Paris, “like those awful plastic ones are here.” The other photographer is -K- of LA. The photo [...]

Toxic Cookies

Toxic Cookies

inspiration: John Sandel I’ve mentioned how John and I chase light around our house with our cameras. Sometimes, the light is subtle and fleeting. Sometimes, the combination of light and object are positively wild. But you have to keep your eyes open. Although this one fits more into the wild category than the subtle, if [...]

It’s Zen Monday again, the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo’s about.

REM, DST and PDP

REM, DST and PDP

Daylight Savings Time ended quietly last night, sometime between periods of rapid eye movement and solid snoring. If we were paying attention we set our clocks back before we went to sleep, and that’s good. But everything’s a bit off today, and that’s…off. You’ll hear no complaints from our house, though, as even early darkness [...]

A friend mentioned that I hadn’t posted any photos from Hahamongna Watershed Park lately. She thought maybe I hadn’t been going there. I’ve been going, all right. I take pictures there all the time. I’m just afraid you’ll get bored if I post as many as I’ve got. But okay. Here’s a seasonal shot of [...]
