Down the Rabbit Hole

Down the Rabbit Hole

My friend dropped me off in Old Town Thursday because I had time to kill between meetings and I was going to annihilate that time in a coffee shop. I planned to show you that shop as a revival of my Coffee Shop Quest. But the shop (Seattle’s Best on Raymond) had apparently bit the [...]

Self-Government

Self-Government

The League of Women Voters, Pasadena Area is sponsoring a free public forum tomorrow called Access to Impact: Using Open Government to Create Change. The keynote speaker is a woman named Hedab Tarifi, who was raised in Kuwait and who, according to the press release I read, “knows what it is like to live under [...]

Eternal Love

Eternal Love

The final resting place of Henry Edwards Huntington and his beloved wife Arabella Duval Huntington is one of the most romantic spots in the Pasadena area. Yes, I’m speaking of a grave. The mausoleum, designed by architect John Russell Pope, is called “a Greek temple dedicated to eternal love.” Pope used a similar design later [...]

A Romantic Spot

A Romantic Spot

You will take your lover’s hand and pass through this old, iron gate. You’ll walk together along this quiet road. When you reach the end you’ll stop and think more deeply than you have before (as another couple did a hundred years ago on this very spot) about what it means to live your lives [...]

Zen Tuesday: #8

Zen Tuesday: #8

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. But this is Zen Tuesday so the rules are even fewer and farther between. Say what comes to mind. That’s what we’re here for today. Read the Full Story at [...]

Theme day: Passageway

Theme day: Passageway

This is one of my favorite passageways in town. It’s at the Huntington Library and Gardens, and for several years I didn’t even know it was there. On either side of this alleyway are some of the oldest original orange groves in the San Gabriel Valley, part of the ranch acquired by Henry Huntington over [...]

Last Day, February 2010

Last Day, February 2010

Johnson Field, 2/21/2010 Here’s my most recent shot of our Last Day location. As an experiment, we’ve been checking in to this spot monthly since last September to view the subtle (or not) changes to one spot over a one-year period. To see all the Last Day posts so far, click on the Last Day [...]

Stay In

Stay In

The sign keeps no one out of nowhere; it’s a remnant of the old days, but of which old days I’m not sure. A skilled rider leads young student riders across the northern part of Hahamongna Watershed Park with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab in the background. I took the photo last Sunday. The ground was [...]

Roberts Camp

Roberts Camp

Since we’re coming up on the weekend, maybe you’re thinking of a hike in Big Santa Anita Canyon. And since I had a very long day I’m putting up another picture I took there last week. Bellis and I wondered if these steps were once part of Roberts Camp (1912-1931) because the commemorative sign for [...]

New Blog in Town

New Blog in Town

Do you know what a “Preventorium” was? Roberta Martinez does, and you’ll find a 1922 photo of of one on page 60 in her book, Latinos in Pasadena. I finally bought my copy of the book and I’ve been nosing through it. Pasadena’s Latino history goes way back to before Pasadena was Pasadena. Roberta’s book [...]
