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 [...]

Fun With Flowers

Fun With Flowers

We rarely get driving rain in the Los Angeles basin–the kind that pelts buckets and makes you pull off the road because you can’t see. We do get rain, however. (We’d almost forgotten it.) This past week we had several days of constant, gentle showers. The drought-dry soil just drank it up and all the [...]

PDP/PPM Books Contest, week 1

PDP/PPM Books Contest, week 1

Honestly, I don’t know what this is. It isn’t a gravestone, but I took the photo at a cemetery. We don’t have cemeteries in Pasadena, did you know that? Not a single one. That may be disappointing for anyone who loves Pasadena so much they’d like to remain here for eternity. However, there are several [...]

Locals Only

Locals Only

The skies should be clear today for Locals Only Thursday in Old Town. Today’s the day to get your shopping done. Locals Only Thursdays rewards people who live and/or work in Pasadena for spending their money here. And why not? You might as well put money into the local economy where it can do you [...]

Aerial

Aerial

I took this photo last year at about this time, then forgot about it. I ran across it last night, messed with the color and contrast, and came up with this. I’m not sure what to say about it except I like it. Yes, I took it in Pasadena. It’s not an aerial shot. I [...]

The Real Thing

The Real Thing

This moss-covered bust of Shakespeare stands (where else?) in the Shakespeare garden at the Huntington Library and Gardens. He looks like a friendly, handsome guy, doesn’t he? Maybe, maybe not. The Huntington owns many fine portraits. I especially admire those by the great Sir Joshua Reynolds, who knew how to make a likeness look like [...]
