Zen Monday: #128

Zen Monday: #128

It’s Zen Monday, 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 I stay out of the comments box until the end of the day to avoid […]

Sandals of Yucca

Sandals of Yucca

Before 1769, California was populated by native tribes. A huge area, from Riverside County to the coast, including the southern Channel Islands and all of the San Gabriel Valley, was dominated by people we now call the Tongva, also known as the Gabrielino. I’ve been reading up on the Tongva for a series of articles […]

Fantasy Office

Fantasy Office

When you wander aimlessly, you find the prettiest surprises. One gray day a couple of weeks ago when I was snooping killing time, I found this pergola right smack dab in the front yard of a house near Caltech. I’d like to have a pergola just like it in my back yard, with wisteria trailing […]

Oak Groves

Oak Groves

This is part of the grove at Oak Grove Park. It’s close to the Jet Propulsion Lab. This part of the park can be found by walking north out of the Oak Grove Park parking lot across from La Canada Flintridge High school. It’s a serene little forest, rare in an urban setting. There’s an […]

While You Were Out

While You Were Out

My friend’s three-year-old has a home office. And why not? Mommy has one and so does Daddy. Plus, like most three-year-olds, this one is a very busy girl with important work to do. It’s a pretty organized space, considering, although I have a feeling Mommy and Daddy have a hand in that. And of course […]

I ran an errand in downtown Pasadena yesterday morning and parked in a lot I hadn’t used before. As it was new to me, and because I need new pictures of Pasadena every day, I looked around for shots. I do it obsessively: Would that make a good photo? How would I shoot it? What […]

This cat knew how alluring she looked in her pink window. She posed for several photos while I stood on the sidewalk and snapped away. Briefly, with Kitty as my muse, I became the Annie Liebovitz of Northwest Pasadena, the Ruth Bernhard, the Louise Dahl-Wolfe! Oh yeah, Kitty. Gorgeous. Gorgeous! Just move a little into […]

All These Things And More

All These Things And More

Yesterday: while the blimp rolled and hummed above the stadium; while the prop jet circled the San Gabriel Valley and more small planes flew higher; while crews cleared Colorado Blvd. of tons of parade debris, while thousands enjoyed the 127th annual Rose Bowl Game with its excitement and noise… …we had this. One of the […]

Theme Day: Photo of the Year 2010

Theme Day: Photo of the Year 2010

City Daily Photo bloggers share a theme day the first of every month, and the first of the year we like to bring out our proudest moments. This is my favorite shot of last year, posted September 22nd: the Occidental College men’s cross country runners at Hahamongna Watershed Park. They remind me of Pheidippides, or […]
