Last Day, March 2010

Last Day, March 2010

Every time I take one of these Last Day photos I think, “This project was a crazy idea. The view is the same every time.” Then I compare the shot to the others and I’m amazed how a place that supposedly has no seasons can change so much in so little time. Johnson Field is [...]

Busy, Work

Busy, Work

Forgive me if I’m short on copy for the next couple of days or if my photos bear scant relation to my words. I’m busy busy busy sprucing up my presentation for this Thursday, April 1st, and setting a bad example for myself. If I haven’t already bugged–uh, mentioned it to you, I’m leading a [...]

Zen Monday: #89

Zen Monday: #89

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 Market Itself

The Market Itself

My old Nissan, fondly nicknamed “the Snot Comet” (don’t ask), finally took a nose dive. I am between cars. This temporarily makes me and John a one-car family, which wouldn’t be difficult anywhere but here in soCal. I enjoy a good walk for local errands. We have the ARTS bus for getting around town if [...]

Superfluous Detail: The Singer Building

Superfluous Detail: The Singer Building

When I need a dose of superfluity all I have to do is check out the almost unnoticed Singer Building on the southeast corner of Colorado Blvd. and Oakland Avenue. Everett Phipps Babcock designed the Spanish Colonial Revival structure for the Singer Sewing Company. It was built in 1926 and listed on the National Register [...]

Pasadena Architectural Salvage

Pasadena Architectural Salvage

I love my house. Someday, however, I want to replace the front door. When I do that I won’t want just any old door. I’ll want an old door from Pasadena Architectural Salvage. I imagine planting a pair of reclaimed columns in my garden and letting vines trail down along their peeling paint. I picture [...]

Yesterday’s birthday didn’t turn out like I thought it would. We picnicked at Vasquez Rocks Monday because I thought John had to work on Tuesday. I figured, on my actual birthday I’d do a little writing, have a nice walk with Boz and clean up the pile on my desk (forget it, that’ll never happen). [...]

It Takes Years to Make One of These

It Takes Years to Make One of These

Sometimes I need to let my lungs expand into wider spaces than city streets can hold, and let my eyes rest on something other than what they see day in and day out. Vasquez Rocks is named for Tiburcio Vasquez, a nineteenth-century outlaw who used the rocks as a hideout and even reportedly passed through [...]
