Presumptuous Detective

Presumptuous Detective

It’s not like I go to Target every day. But one has occasion to stop in at least once in a while. I visit the one at 777 E. Colorado Blvd. (there’s another one at 3121 East Colorado). You’d think somewhere in five years of shopping one would notice hundreds of little hand prints on [...]

Stairway to A Secret

Stairway to A Secret

If you’re willing to get off the main path, Lower Arroyo Park will give up its secrets. Stone walls, steep trails, hidden stairways and more lie waiting in the underbrush along the walls of the Arroyo. I’ve sometimes wondered if these human-made bits might be traces of Busch Gardens. The walls, maybe. Some are old, [...]

Planet Flora

Planet Flora

My move in the late 1980′s from Illinois to southern California was a culture shock so complete I didn’t even recognize the vegetation. Gone were the tame, Midwestern maples, elms and simple posies, to be replaced by palm trees and flora I recognized from Dr. Seuss. To keep my attitude positive, I decided to think [...]

Trade-Off

Trade-Off

Work on the Braley Building has finally been completed after four years, during which many Pasadenish lamented the sale of this historic structure to the Church of Scientology and wondered if renovation would ever even begin. Upon purchasing the building, the Church immediately evicted long-standing businesses only to leave the building empty and waiting. Not [...]

A Breather

A Breather

Now that it’s summer, my days are filling up faster than Scarlett O’Hara’s dance card. How does that happen? It’s my fault. I wonder if it’s too late to learn to say “no.” I’m not the only one who sometimes feels my email owns me, or who occasionally needs to remind myself I’m in charge [...]

Zen Monday: #104

Zen Monday: #104

Well, how ’bout that? It’s Zen Monday all over again, the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo’s about. There’s no competition, no right or wrong. We’re here to have fun. I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something [...]

Honoring the Best in Business

Honoring the Best in Business

Last Friday I attended the 11th Annual Women in Business Legislative Update and Awards Luncheon–not my normal milieu, as I work in the arts. But if you’ve been following Pasadena Daily Photo you may remember I attended a Business Boot Camp at the Women’s City Club of Pasadena. An artist has to be a business [...]

Pasanita

Pasanita

I had glimpsed this building before I knew what it was. It’s set back from Altadena Drive, easy to miss. I admired it’s cloister-like structure. And then I sort of forgot about it until I read a fascinating post at Avenue to the Sky. (Check it out. He’s even got old newspaper clippings.) It was [...]

Summer Entertainment

Summer Entertainment

Summer is finally here. I know because as the day dwindles with the heat, folks show up on our lawn much like they did last summer. It’s not exactly the same. The kids are a bit bigger. There are some new ones. Some of the ones from last summer are no longer around. Boz hears [...]

All Smiles

All Smiles

Some of our City Council members had a long night on Monday. Not only did they have a Council meeting that lasted until past midnight, but it was preceded by the swearing in of Pasadena’s new Chief of Police, Phillip L. Sanchez. I have a feeling they preferred the earlier event. I won’t go over [...]
