Love Bucket

Love Bucket

This shot was an accident. Imperfect, but I love it. The things that could be said about this shot, a dog-lover knows: A dog is fine company. Ushering a dog through life is a privilege. There is no joy like that of a happy dog. Et cetera. We have about forty nick-names for Boz. Today [...]

Creative Record

Creative Record

An impression of a leaf in mud on the sidewalk. Gone with the rain, its image fleeting as a thought quickly written then erased. It reminded me of last summer’s sidewalk art, created in the same spot by a neighborhood Mondrian. It faded slowly and we got to enjoy it for a long time. But [...]

iPhone Wednesday #2 – The Counter

iPhone Wednesday #2 – The Counter

A super-clean lunch place in Studio City featuring “custom built burgers,” The Counter was new to me when I stopped by a couple of weeks ago for take-out. The music was loud (visit their website with your speakers on for the gist), so you know me–I didn’t stay. But the burger I escaped with was [...]

Home Shopping: Even Now

Home Shopping: Even Now

The sign in the window says NO TRESPASSING in more ways than I thought possible. What it means is, “the bank owns this house and don’t even think about messing this up. Don’t EVEN. Just have your agent call so you can buy the damn thing.” Maybe you should. I hear it’s a good time [...]

Zen Monday: #83

Zen Monday: #83

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 Best Camera

The Best Camera

I never thought I’d leave the house yesterday. We were safe and comfortable. But during a lull between storms we realized we were out of coffee. At least one person in our household must have coffee at a certain time of day, so a hurried excursion was organized. I grabbed my wallet and iPhone and [...]

Vestiges of Deco Glory

Vestiges of Deco Glory

I took the liberty of brightening the rainy sky in this shot so you could better see the art deco glory of Angels School Supply at 606 E. Colorado Blvd. Perhaps it’s better known to old-timers as United Artist’s Theatre. Clifford A. Balch designed the building for the firm Walker & Eisen. It opened in [...]

Cold Faithful

Cold Faithful

I spotted this pair outside Zeli Coffee Bar on one of our rainy days a couple of weeks ago. I don’t think the dog was cold, really. He had on his fur coat. But you wouldn’t have caught me sitting outside that day. We’re expecting more rain today and tomorrow. Maybe thunder and lightning on [...]

Superfluous Detail: Celebration in Cement

Superfluous Detail: Celebration in Cement

Well I’ve had enough nature for one week! I need something urban, thank you very much. This building on East Colorado Blvd. is empty right now. What was it–Aardvark’s? Does anyone remember? I don’t think this is a historical structure. I believe this superfluous detail is a recent addition. But I could be wrong. Tell [...]

I’ll Wear Daffodils in My Crown

I’ll Wear Daffodils in My Crown

daffodils grow along an old fence at the Hahamongna Annex Monday night I went to my first Pasadena City Council meeting. Because so many of you commented on Monday’s post, where I expressed concern for the fate of the Hahamongna Annex, I thought I’d report back. Everybody won! That’s the gist of it. Everybody got [...]
