Sweet Old Ride

Sweet Old Ride

No, you’re not seeing Glimpses of South Pasadena. But that’s not a bad idea. When I lived in Illinois I rarely saw cars like this. Harsh winters make them so impractical as to render them impossible. But here in southern California we see them all the time. I’m no car expert and I don’t know [...]

Pardon Me, My Dander is Showing

Pardon Me, My Dander is Showing

So where are they planning to put the soccer fields? This might be a good spot. A nice little forest stood here before the January flood when I took these photos. There’s still water flowing more than three months later and the area’s been pretty well leveled. Hey! Flat enough for a soccer field! Maybe [...]

Theme Day: Red

Theme Day: Red

You would think “red” would be easy, but as soon as that theme was declared I began to see only the most mundane of red things: a car, a faded shirt, a candy wrapper (but the candy was good). I was relieved when I saw this wheelbarrow because I didn’t want to take a picture [...]

Last Day, March 2010

Last Day, March 2010

Every time I take one of these Last Day photos I think, “This project was a crazy idea. The view is the same every time.” Then I compare the shot to the others and I’m amazed how a place that supposedly has no seasons can change so much in so little time. Johnson Field is [...]

Busy, Work

Busy, Work

Forgive me if I’m short on copy for the next couple of days or if my photos bear scant relation to my words. I’m busy busy busy sprucing up my presentation for this Thursday, April 1st, and setting a bad example for myself. If I haven’t already bugged–uh, mentioned it to you, I’m leading a [...]

Zen Monday: #89

Zen Monday: #89

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 [...]

The Market Itself

The Market Itself

My old Nissan, fondly nicknamed “the Snot Comet” (don’t ask), finally took a nose dive. I am between cars. This temporarily makes me and John a one-car family, which wouldn’t be difficult anywhere but here in soCal. I enjoy a good walk for local errands. We have the ARTS bus for getting around town if [...]

Superfluous Detail: The Singer Building

Superfluous Detail: The Singer Building

When I need a dose of superfluity all I have to do is check out the almost unnoticed Singer Building on the southeast corner of Colorado Blvd. and Oakland Avenue. Everett Phipps Babcock designed the Spanish Colonial Revival structure for the Singer Sewing Company. It was built in 1926 and listed on the National Register [...]

Pasadena Architectural Salvage

Pasadena Architectural Salvage

I love my house. Someday, however, I want to replace the front door. When I do that I won’t want just any old door. I’ll want an old door from Pasadena Architectural Salvage. I imagine planting a pair of reclaimed columns in my garden and letting vines trail down along their peeling paint. I picture [...]
