Still Want to Work There?

Still Want to Work There?

Okay so it wasn’t a church. It was a morgue. I thought I’d show you a few more pictures from the building at Holly St. and Marengo Ave. that we talked about on Monday. Behind these gates is the courtyard section of Eden Garden Bar & Grill, formerly Holly St. Bar & Grill. (I had [...]

Zen Monday: #86

Zen Monday: #86

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 [...]

Cast Out by the Moneychangers

Cast Out by the Moneychangers

For your Sunday delectation, a church that is not a church. On the corner of Holly Street and Marengo a block from City Hall, this one-time church-turned-office building appears to be another victim of either the recession or greed or both. There are a few of these around town–landlords who turned out tenants when they [...]

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

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 [...]
