iPhone Wednesday #5 – Bark

iPhone Wednesday #5 – Bark

Not, like, as in “woof.” Although it’s high time for another Boz post. This is a close-up of a tree (what kind?) shedding its bark in Washington Park. I’ve downloaded a bunch of photography apps on the iPhone but I never use them. I’m sure I will sooner or later, but I’m not into messing [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
