Quiet

Quiet

After 1,052 days of blogging (or you might like to think of it as 90,892,800 seconds) you’d think I’d run out of things to say. I do. Often. And not always on Zen Mondays. Sometimes I run out of things to say on Thursdays. Boz will be pleased at this turn of events because it [...]

Have a Nice Day

Have a Nice Day

Sometimes you have a rotten day. Maybe you get a late start. Then traffic sucks and you get to work (late) and everyone’s in a lousy mood. Someone calls with bad news. Your boss isn’t speaking to you. It’s not even time for your coffee break and you’re already creating a list in your head–a [...]

Glory Days

Glory Days

Not a beautiful photo, but quintessential November in Pasadena. We’re on Orange Grove Avenue at Green Street, facing northeast. The stands are going up for the Rose Parade on Orange Grove Avenue from Green St. to Colorado Blvd. You can see the Norton Simon Museum if you look behind the stands across the Elks Lodge [...]

Zen Monday: #120

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 [...]
