Our Heritage, the Right to Vote

Our Heritage, the Right to Vote

Why is Natalie smiling? Because this beautiful dress is only a costume, it’s not 1913, and she’s not a real suffragette. She’s already got the right to vote, thanks to the women who came before her. This year marks the 90th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, allowing women the [...]

Moda Optique

Moda Optique

I’ve always dreaded getting new eyeglasses. I’ve put off shopping for frames. I’ll be wearing the things on my face, of all places, so they’d better be perfect. Apparently, what I’ve needed all along was Hratch, the owner, Optician and Eyewear Consultant at Moda Optique at 415 South Lake Avenue. John discovered Hratch (pronounced as [...]

Zen Monday: #100

Zen Monday: #100

Here it is. #100. Welcome to Zen Monday. In case this is your first, allow me to explain: 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. We’re here to have fun. I look [...]

Misty Morning Pair

Misty Morning Pair

Friday, Boz and I took a misty morning walk around the Rose Bowl Stadium with a good friend and her perky pooch. Walking, running, or biking around the Rose Bowl is something a lot of people do regularly. Even the mayor does it. But I had never done it before. I take my camera everywhere [...]

Sunset Fire Road

Sunset Fire Road

The Sunset Fire Road was closed to hikers after last autumn’s Station Fire, which killed two firefighters and burned 251 square miles of forest. Not to be confused with the Sunset Trail, which remains off limits, the Sunset Fire Road is open again. In Altadena, turn north off of Loma Alta Road at the flashing [...]

Santa Anita Racetrack

Santa Anita Racetrack

I’m one of the few people in southern California who didn’t watch the Lakers beat the Celtics last night. I knew LA won, though, when at about 3 minutes to 9 o’clock my quiet little block erupted with cheers, fireworks and party horns. I’m thrilled with the Lakers’ win. Even if no one got any [...]

Royal Laundry Complex

Royal Laundry Complex

I should probably call this post “Disney Stores World Headquarters,” because that entity occupies the Royal Laundry Complex at 443-477 S. Raymond Avenue. But I poked around the web and discovered Disney’s leasing the property, so I guess we can still call it the Royal Laundry. Designed by Gordon B. Kaufmann, an accomplished architect credited [...]

Weekday Afternoon

Weekday Afternoon

I’ve been to the Coffee Gallery, oh, about a thousand times. But I’ve ceased to be alert for photos in the places I frequent, which may be why this one showed itself–because I wasn’t looking for it. I was struck by the contrast of black against blue: the stencils in the window, the chairs against [...]

Door, 1

Door, 1

I suppose what lures me to doors is the possibility of what’s behind them, but maybe that’s too simple. A door puts a face on a place, gives it expression, says something about who lives there. I love a reclusive door at the end of an alleyway, a bright red front door declaring itself or [...]

Zen Monday: #99

Zen Monday: #99

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 [...]
