Zen Monday: #114

Zen Monday: #114

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. 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 to avoid [...]

Pie Night ’10

Pie Night ’10

Pie Night was so crowded this year I couldn’t get near the table to take a photo of the pies. Sure enough, as soon as I stepped outside to shoot through the window the crowd cleared. I wasn’t getting much of a shot so I thought I’d go back in, then Cherub here stepped up [...]

Hitting My Wall

Hitting My Wall

Every so often my office gets so cluttered I can’t work in there. The desk is piled with paperwork. Stacks of magazines gather dust on the side table because I mean to get to pages I’ve dog-eared listing a website I want to check out or an article that merits rereading. I can’t open the [...]

Door, 3

Door, 3

This door is a bit of a flirt. With her screen slightly ajar, she says, “come hither.” Yet just inside her petticoat screen there’s a giant lock on her full underskirt. I guess that makes her a tease. (Door is feminine in French–la porte.) You might say she’s plain, even simple. It’s true, if you [...]

Superfluous Details: Home

Superfluous Details: Home

I suppose I should define what I mean by a “superfluous detail.” I think of it as a detail on a building’s exterior for which there is no structural necessity; it exists simply for the sake of beauty. Generally it’s an architectural detail, but in today’s example the homeowner added it–just because it’s pretty. It’s [...]

The Occidental Runners

The Occidental Runners

This picture is my favorite of all the photos I’ve taken. I’ve been saving it. I took it last year at about this time at Hahamongna Watershed Park when the Occidental cross country team was using the trails for practice. I remember the moment: I saw how perfect the light was, heard the young men [...]

1001

1001

Among City Daily Photo bloggers, one’s one thousandth post is a big deal. I knew mine was coming but it landed yesterday, Zen Monday. I wasn’t about to mess with tradition just to toot my own horn. I didn’t want to pass it up, however, so I chose today for tooting. But what photo to [...]

Bite Club

Bite Club

Let’s just call it “critter weekend” here on PDP. What are these two doing? When I came upon them they were completely still–they weren’t fighting, and it doesn’t look like sex. Then again, what do I know about lizard sex? It’s been a long time since I dated reptiles. Here’s the side view: That grey [...]

Bee Bath

Bee Bath

The bees were lovin’ this leaky outdoor plumbing when I came across it in one of Pasadena’s city parks. We have an abundance of parks. Abundance is good any time, especially in this time of shortages. It must take a lot of effort to keep all that plumbing in good shape. We have a budget [...]
