Idyllwild, Tamed

“You sound plaintive,” John said when he read my August 20th post where I complained of needing a road trip. “Let’s just go.” If I’d known it was going to be that easy, I’d have blogged about it sooner. Many of you suggested the beach, but as we chose to spontaneously skip town on a [...]

The Weather is Here

The Weather is Here

Yesterday’s thunderheads over the San Gabriel Mountains were a ghostly anniversary reminder of the pyrocumulus clouds resulting from the Station Fire, which began on August 26th of 2009 and is still under investigation. The Station Fire was at last fully contained on October 16th, 2009. The largest fire in the recorded history of the Angeles [...]

May the Best Rattlesnake Win

photo by Michael Schwartz For the second day in a row I’m posting a photo taken by someone else. Call me a slacker, I don’t care. When the photos are this remarkable, you can call me whatever you want to. Many thanks to Michael Schwartz for this one. You know Michael–he and his family are [...]

Someone found a snakeskin at Hahamongna Watershed Park and staked it out on a bench. It’s an odd thrill to come across this primitive display in the 21st century. I don’t know what kind of snake it came from. We’ve come across king snakes as well as rattlesnakes at Hahamongna. Rattlers are more common so [...]

Zen Monday: #109

Zen Monday: #109

Zen Monday has arrived! 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 [...]

So I’m looking at this photo of the fountain at the Huntington Gardens. Lovely fountain, right? Pretty garden, nice statue, blah blah. It’s so idyllic, any second now a unicorn will come along and nibble the grass. But something bugs me. A question: do fish spit? Fortunately I have at my fingertips a marvelous tool [...]

If you want a sneak preview of this year’s UCLA Bruins football team, today’s your day. You’re going to have to go to West Los Angeles to see it, though, at Drake Stadium on the UCLA Campus. The Bruins will be back in Pasadena at the Rose Bowl beginning September 11th. But this photo’s not [...]

Boz Kerouac

Boz Kerouac

Boz and I need a road trip and I don’t see it happening soon enough. Boz languished around the house yesterday, dying for some action. He didn’t believe me when I told him it was too hot to go out, so to prove it I took him for a brief walk in the mid day. [...]

Oh, Stop

Oh, Stop

This photo was just the type to mess with, so I did. I saturated the colors, fooled around with the contrast and tried it in black & white. I antiqued it, faded it, turned it into a negative and freaked it out with psychedelics. When at last I had the look I wanted I compared [...]
