Kay Mouradian

Kay Mouradian

I love writers of all kinds. I love journalists, novelists, humorists, essayists and anyone who works hard to make the words meaningful when they put pen to paper or fingers to keys. And Kay Mouradian is particularly easy to like, because she’s Kay. This photo of her with a fan at the Los Angeles Times [...]

Zen Monday: #96

Zen Monday: #96

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. There’s no right or wrong. It means what you think it means, or what you want it to mean. I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something [...]

Crown City Jewel

Crown City Jewel

Someone once told me the Pawn Shop at the corner of Colorado Blvd. and Raymond Avenue was one of the oldest buildings in town. But I hadn’t known until I took the Pasadena Heritage Old Town Walking Tour that it was designed by our famous local brothers, Charles and Henry Greene. Today’s first photo was [...]

I Say Dodworth, You Say Dodsworth?

I Say Dodworth, You Say Dodsworth?

Yesterday’s photo of the Dodworth Building was different from today’s in many ways. Yesterday’s photo was taken by me in 2010, looking at the north face of the building on Colorado Blvd. Today’s photo was taken by Terry Griest in 1984, looking at the building from the northeast. Terry’s our graphic designer friend from the [...]

Superfluous Details: Dodworthy

Superfluous Details: Dodworthy

Designed by J.J. Blick, the Dodworth Building has stood at the corner of Fair Oaks and Colorado, directly south of the building I featured yesterday, since 1902. Right now it houses the Cheesecake Factory (warning: talking website). Get a load of all those superfluous details! The Pasadena Heritage Old Town Walking Tour is informative, and [...]

Third Time’s a Charm

Third Time’s a Charm

Where are my manners? I promised you this photo last November! That kind of lateness is soooo unfashionable. You probably forgot, like I did. I’ll refresh your memory. Last November we were talking about Owl Drug, which was once in this building at the corner of Colorado Blvd. and Fair Oaks. (You can still see [...]

Iced Tea and Old Lace

Iced Tea and Old Lace

It’s my sister Margot’s birthday. I thought I’d post a photo of this genteel veranda and imagine she and I might sit and have a glass of iced tea. We haven’t had a chance to sit and talk together for a long time. And cookies. What? Oh, okay, cake. It’s a birthday. On May first, [...]

Skye and More

Skye and More

Skye Moorhead in her studio More and more these days you need a professional headshot. That old snapshot of you guzzling a can of PBR in your “Zeppelin Rules!” t-shirt (or was that me?) doesn’t cut it for online business networking. You need a pro photographer who’s got the studio, equipment, make-up artist, camera, assistant, [...]
