Susan Stroh: Coaching it Out of You

Susan Stroh: Coaching it Out of You

Susan Stroh is one of those people who asks about you first. To start a conversation she says something nice about you–not your outfit, you. She points out something intriguing she heard you say, or mentions how well you carry yourself or how interesting your work is. She knows how to focus outside herself. I [...]

Home

Home

Yesterday was a beautiful day for a hike or a walk, but I stayed home. After having lived in apartments for so long, almost any house would have been a relief. But in our 85-year-old wood-frame home, with its hardwood floors, built-ins and casement windows, we feel gratitude every day. Really. Every single day we [...]

Panoramania

Panoramania

Please enlarge this one. John got a photo-stitching app for his iPhone and now he’s as bad as I am. Everywhere we go, we’re both snapping pictures. A couple of addicts. Me: snap, snap, snap. John: snap-turn, snap-turn, snap-turn. We now have panoramas of our house, our street, Hahamongna, the mountains, the dam, the dog, [...]

Zen Monday: #79

Zen Monday: #79

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 [...]

Communication Not Separation

Communication Not Separation

I saw this mural when I was out shooting pictures of the Rose Parade aftermath. It’s at 1292 Colorado Blvd. overlooking the parking lot just west of the Incycle bicycle shop. The artist is Victor Steinbacher, assisted by Leo Sanchez. A tidbit of undated information I found on the web said Steinbacher studied at Art [...]

Silly

Silly

The town board of Huntington, Long Island voted to ban the sale of Silly String within 1,500 feet of parade routes because the stuff stains the finish on their fire trucks. But at our Parade, Silly String is a time-honored tradition. After all, our floats are biodegradable. What can a little bit of polyisobutyl-methacrylate and [...]

Theme Day: Changes

Theme Day: Changes

On January first, 2008, my husband drove me through the hills above the Rose Bowl Stadium during the football game so I could try to get a decent shot with my Olympus SP30. We finally stopped on the Holly Street Bridge where I took this photo.Never mind that we never got close enough to give [...]

Last Day, December 2009

Last Day, December 2009

On the last day of September I began this monthly theme: a photo of the same spot from the same angle. The idea is to view it at different seasons and watch it change over time. I’ve taken lots of pictures from this spot overlooking Johnson Field at Hahamongna Watershed Park. I chose this for [...]

Horse Crazy

Horse Crazy

Horses have been part of the Tournament of Roses Parade since its beginning in 1890. This year is no exception: 23 different equestrian groups will prance down Colorado Blvd. with the floats on New Year’s day. As kids we watched all the big holiday parades–the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade with its huge balloons, the Hollywood [...]

Rose Bowl Enochlophobia

Rose Bowl Enochlophobia

I have a confession to make: I love being out and about in Pasadena all year ’round, except during Tournament of Roses week. I often drive through the Arroyo near the Rose Bowl Stadium on my way home from Hollywood or the San Fernando Valley. But not today. People are down there getting ready for [...]
