Wubbada-Wubbada

all photos by John Sandel I’ve dug in my heels. I refuse to raise the debt ceiling at our house. The people who live here have to learn to live within their means. Screw the consequences. There will be no new sod in the back yard this summer. Suffer! There will be no beach vacation. […]

The Cobb Estate

Before white settlers came to the Cobb Estate, native Tongva people hunted deer, bobcats and rabbits in the brush. According to Robert H.

Parking Lot Graphic

Parking Lot Graphic

Trader Joe’s parking lot on a sunny day. I have groceries on the brain. Shopping is on today’s to-do list. ************* Update, 9am: you may note the 4:30am post time.

Ce N’est Pas Une Tomate

Ce N’est Pas Une Tomate

Is it a picture of a tomato on the kitchen counter or is it art?  I’m not fishing for compliments. I’m trying to make a decision. When does an object become representative of something else? Where does art happen? On the kitchen counter? In the camera? On the computer screen? In the eyes of the […]

Vintage Altadena

Vintage Altadena

Ah…ah…ah… Ah… Ahhcross the street from Tangles and Locks, you’ll often see these babies parked in all their vintage glory (and I do mean glory) at what is now called Paulie’s Service Station. (Used to be Ronnie’s Automotive. Enlarge the top photo to see the Ronnie’s sign.) I went back and forth about whether or […]
