Roma Italian Deli & Market

Roma Italian Deli & Market

Pasadenish in the know have shopped at Roma Italian Deli & Grocery for imported cheeses, meats, olive oils and other Italian delicacies for over 50 years. You can buy special pastas, interesting wines, and even produce at a more reasonable price than at the supermarket. But the real find at Roma is Rosario, the market’s [...]

John and I went scouting yesterday. We were looking for a place to take a photo. You know how much trouble I have finding places to take photos in Pasadena. But we need a particular photo this time: we want it to look like a studio backlot. You know–huge, warehouse-type buildings, kind of non-descript. We [...]

Faulkner Was Right

Faulkner Was Right

“The past is never dead. It’s not even past.” —William Faulkner For your contemplative Sunday spirit: a bit of early Zen from guest photographer John Sandel. This one knocked my socks off and I’m grateful to him for letting me post it. To be honest, the weather is warm and I was already barefoot. Read [...]

French Filling

French Filling

Some people make it a point to get to Paris every year. In the absence of that possibility, I make it a point to get to Nicole’s in South Pasadena whenever I want a taste of France. Now, before anyone outs me I’ll admit I practically starved in Paris. I didn’t know how to order [...]

Not the Ideal Spot

Not the Ideal Spot

I get over to Hahamongna Watershed Park about three times a week and I’ve been taking pictures there for two and a half years. You’d think I’d have enough photos of the place. But it’s different every time I go, with new colors, new angles or, right now, a new family of ducks. I tried [...]

There’s No Place Like Home Page

There’s No Place Like Home Page

Okay, I get it. I’m not welcome. Don’t come this way, don’t knock on this gate, haunted alley, I’d turn back if I were you. Yet just across the way, at 222 E. Harvard Street in Glendale… …is the Glendale Central Library, where you’re most welcome this Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m. when I’ll be [...]

Zen Wednesday: #1

Zen Wednesday: #1

We’ve never had a Zen Wednesday before. I missed Zen Monday this week because it was the last day of the month and we do Last Day and–I don’t know, is that Zen? (Not that Zen Monday is ever actually Zen.) Then Tuesday was Theme Day. But we’ve got to have our Zen, so here [...]

Theme Day: Funny Signs

Theme Day: Funny Signs

There may be a part of Pasadena I haven’t scoured for funny signs, but I don’t know where it is. I had to go to Valley Village to find this one (thanks for the tip, Lisa!). Sometimes I want to tell people Los Angeles isn’t as weird as folks say it is. Then I see [...]
