Memory Bus

Memory Bus

click on the photo to enlarge it John, Boz and I were walking in the neighborhood the other day when I noticed these flowers behind a fence. I began to photograph them when I saw a school bus parked ahead. The sidewalk led my eye like a fast lane through a tunnel of memory. I [...]

June Gloom

June Gloom

It looks like some young artist couldn’t be bothered to finish this plein air chalk work, and a few other things besides. Gray skies, cool weather, on the gloomy side. Perfect for writers, but maybe not so great for those artists who need the light. Here’s hoping for a sunny Saturday! Read the Full Story [...]

Pole Pigs*

Pole Pigs*

I called these barrel-shaped things “transformers” but John thought they were insulators. Neither one of us was sure. We decided to find something better to argue about. The wiring of the world seems primitive to me. We’ve been wired for over 200 years. I think we’re on the brink of finding a wireless way to [...]

Roma Italian Deli & Market

Roma Italian Deli & Market

Pasadenish in the know have shopped at Roma Italian Deli & Grocery for imported cheeses, meats, olive oils and other Italian delicacies for over 50 years. You can buy special pastas, interesting wines, and even produce at a more reasonable price than at the supermarket. But the real find at Roma is Rosario, the market’s [...]

John and I went scouting yesterday. We were looking for a place to take a photo. You know how much trouble I have finding places to take photos in Pasadena. But we need a particular photo this time: we want it to look like a studio backlot. You know–huge, warehouse-type buildings, kind of non-descript. We [...]

Faulkner Was Right

Faulkner Was Right

“The past is never dead. It’s not even past.” —William Faulkner For your contemplative Sunday spirit: a bit of early Zen from guest photographer John Sandel. This one knocked my socks off and I’m grateful to him for letting me post it. To be honest, the weather is warm and I was already barefoot. Read [...]

French Filling

French Filling

Some people make it a point to get to Paris every year. In the absence of that possibility, I make it a point to get to Nicole’s in South Pasadena whenever I want a taste of France. Now, before anyone outs me I’ll admit I practically starved in Paris. I didn’t know how to order [...]

Not the Ideal Spot

Not the Ideal Spot

I get over to Hahamongna Watershed Park about three times a week and I’ve been taking pictures there for two and a half years. You’d think I’d have enough photos of the place. But it’s different every time I go, with new colors, new angles or, right now, a new family of ducks. I tried [...]
