Zen Monday: #102

Zen Monday: #102

Welcome to Zen Monday. In case this is your first: 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 for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, [...]

Amber Waves

Amber Waves

O beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain, For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain! America! America! God shed his grace on thee And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea! America the Beautiful, the 1895 poem by Katherine Lee Bates and set to Samuel Ward’s music, has several [...]

Solar Salad

Solar Salad

When I moved here from Illinois I thought of living in southern California as a vacation on another planet, especially when it came to plant life. Sometimes I still do. The brownish stream on the lower right of this photo is bean pods. The branches above the stream show where the pods came from. What [...]

Theme Day: Reflections

Theme Day: Reflections

Nordstrom shoppers at the Westfield Santa Anita Mall. Here it is the first of the month again, and that means a City Daily Photo theme day. On the first I like to update you how many blogs we have in the family (1243), and today I’ll also mention the newest, Oxford Daily Photo (UK). I [...]

Last Day, June 2010

Last Day, June 2010

June marks the tenth month of the Last Day project. The idea is to take a photo from the same vantage point on or about the end of each month, and view the changes over a year’s time. If you click the link, or on the “last day” label below, you’ll see Johnson Field is [...]

Madre’s

Madre’s

Madre’s restaurant might not be a mystery to you, but it was to me. I found it in my wanderings a couple of months ago. This entryway might be gone by now. Such things are ephemeral. Jennifer Lopez opened this “elegant Cuban restaurant” at 897 Granite Drive in April of 2002. It started out with [...]

In Progress

In Progress

I did some transplanting yesterday and began an attempt at organizing the wasteland we call our back yard. These are not my plants. I said I began an attempt. I have transplanted three plants. This is the fence and driveway of someone who’s much further along in their project. Still, I feel good about my [...]

Paper Trees

Paper Trees

I’ve heard of paper being made from trees. These trees turn things around; they look like they’re made of paper. The bark peels off them in great sheets, each tree is like a writing tablet. What would I use to write with on such paper? Perhaps a bird would deign to perch on my finger [...]

Pasadena Sandwich Company

Pasadena Sandwich Company

I kept meaning to try the Pasadena Sandwich Company but there was never a parking space in front. Well, duh. There’s a parking lot in back. They have plenty of parking. Inside they have plenty of clocks, plenty of hats and plenty of food. My Veggie Supreme was so big I was able to eat [...]
