Villa Parke Community Center

Villa Parke Community Center

The Villa Parke Community Center is close to my house, but I had never been inside the courtyard until I found out there was a library there and they had a book I wanted. If you haven’t been to Villa Parke you’re missing this extravagant and surprising fountain created by artist Dora De Larios. I […]

Zen Monday: #150

Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what the photo’s about. Although this one isn’t particularly complicated. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Happy Birthday, Pasadena

Happy Birthday, Pasadena

I wasn’t the only one photographing the birthday balloons. I couldn’t resist. Yesterday, on the grounds of the Pasadena Museum of History and the adjacent Avery Dennison Corporation, Pasadena held a 125th birthday party for itself. There were antique cars, wonderful bands, high-powered super-drummers, food stands, historic photographs, hat making, a children’s area, representatives from […]

Not So Hot

Not So Hot

Is the sun ever going to come back or not? I took this photo at least a year ago and it seems like it’s been that long since the sun has shone on/shown itself in Pasadena. I admit I’m impatient, but one doesn’t move to southern California from northern Illinois for the cool, cloudy weather. […]

Seed Bombs

Seed Bombs

I love new. It’s good for the brain to introduce it to new. This was new to me. Even though the concept of seed bombing came in with the concept of guerilla gardening in the 1970’s, it held but a vague spot in my memory until I encountered this seed bomb gumball machine outside the […]

Sweet History

Sweet History

Our fair city was incorporated in 1876. That means this year is Pasadena’s 125th birthday. The big birthday bash is this Saturday, June 11th, at the Pasadena Museum of History. Last year, for the 124th, we had a cake in the shape of City Hall made by the students at the Le Cordon Bleu College […]

Boz, 13 or so

Boz, 13 or so

Today marks the 8th anniversary of the day John and I brought Boz home from the shelter. We think of it as his birthday. Which birthday, we’re not sure. A good guess would be 12 or 13. Like any old guy, Boz enjoys simple pleasures. He likes to warm himself on the scratchy grass in […]

Arroyo Kenpo

Arroyo Kenpo

I’ve seen many artists working in the Arroyo Seco, but this is the first time I’ve seen martial artists. When I came across Juan Serrano (that’s him on the right) and his pupil Clayton practicing, um, judo? karate? tai chi?–I thought, why not? You’re not going to find a more beautiful place to work. It […]
