Pas. Daily Photo


Theme Day: Mailbox

Theme Day: Mailbox

Today’s City Daily Photo theme is “Mailbox,” which can be interpreted in more imaginative ways than I came up with. That’s okay, the homeowners here did the interpreting for me. I love their slightly twisted, “approved by the postmaster general” U.S. mailbox. I wonder what they’re commenting on, exactly. Not that I want to know. […]

Idea

Idea

Sometimes you have a hundred ideas and no luxury to write them all down. Sometimes an idea for a story is a long time in coming. Sometimes you wonder if the idea for the story you just wrote is the last one you’re ever going to have. Or maybe that’s just me. Then I sit […]

Weekend

Weekend

There’s a lot going on this weekend in Pasadena, especially Saturday. 1. The Doo Dah Parade. Eau mai gawd. 2. Arlington Garden‘s sixth anniversary celebration. 3. The grand opening of Reese’s Retreat (9am-1pm). 4. And if you’re bookish (I’m bookish!–and you thought I was American) there’s the LA Times Festival of Books, not in Pasadena […]

Geology Lesson #3

Geology Lesson #3

It’s been a while since Pasadena Daily Photo’s resident geologist paid us a visit. Earlier this week, Becca brought her geology students to the Arroyo Seco on a field trip. I asked her to tell me about it: “The students are enrolled in physical geology at Mt. San Antonio College (Mt. SAC). This field trip […]

Guest Post: Amy Ratcliffe, Geek With Curves

For the third month in a row, I’m happy to present a guest post by a local writer. Today, meet Amy Ratcliffe. I love her story. She wanted to be a writer. She thought about it. Then she decided to make it happen and bam!  I think you’ll like Amy as much as I do. […]

Just a Bunch of Guys

Just a Bunch of Guys

Meeting these guys and taking their picture might be a turning point in my blogging career. They were getting ready to leave just as I pulled into the gas station to fill up. I’ve been shy about asking people if I can take their photo. I could have let them go. But I grabbed my […]

Zen Monday: #143

Zen Monday: #143

Is it Zen Monday again? Why, yes it is. Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and tell us what you’ve learned. Is this your first Zen Monday? Just say what the picture makes you think of or how it makes you feel. It might be helpful to click on the photo to […]

My Church

My Church

It could be in the mountains, too–or the desert, or lost in the woods. It’s a big place. Have a nice holiday, whatever you choose to do. Heads up for those who follow the Hahamongna happenings: A special meeting of the Hahamongna Watershed Park Advisory Committee will be held on Tuesday, April 26th at 6PM at […]

April 23rd

April 23rd

It’s Shakespeare’s birthday. I thought I should say “Happy Birthday, Will!” seeing as we–okay, I–so ill-used him on the blog merely a week ago. It’s also St. George’s Day in the United Kingdom. From what I understand it’s not exactly a big deal on that precious stone set in the silver sea, but it makes […]

Impasse

Impasse

I walked out onto the Colorado Street Bridge yesterday to see a memorial. I had driven by earlier and seen flowers and balloons, so I went back on foot. Knowing someone had jumped from the bridge on April 12th, I thought it might be a tribute for him. But now I don’t know. Near where […]
