Last Day, January 2010

Last Day, January 2010

Johnson Field looks green after rain, doesn’t it? I took this photo January 23rd. At left, John and Boz face off. At right, a father and his kids play ball. It was inevitable that the twain should meet. After I took the shot I walked to the drinking fountain and met Jodie, the mom of [...]

Welcome Weekend

Welcome Weekend

Here’s a view of the tower of St. Andrews Catholic Church as reflected in the windows overlooking the parking lot behind the LA Financial Credit Union at Fair Oaks and Walnut. No, I’m not making a statement about money and religion. I just thought it looked serene. I have a serene weekend planned. You? There’s [...]

Fluorescents Be Damned

Fluorescents Be Damned

We had to duck out early on the Mayor’s State of the City event last night (actually tonight, as I’m typing this) because I had (have) a migraine. There’s Mayor Bogaard on the right, getting ready for his speech. He looks calm and collected, I think. We stayed long enough to hear my voice-over for [...]

Nature’s Course

Nature’s Course

A transient river flows through Hahamongna Watershed Park, charting its own course to carry the recent rainfall from the mountains to the dam. See it while you can. We live in the desert after all. Tonight the Mayor’s State of the City event will be held at LaSalle High School. The event’s theme is “Charting [...]

Too Popped to Pot

Too Popped to Pot

I attended an event at the Pasadena Convention Center last Sunday–a seminar called POP! Your Book, Brand, Business and Career. On the lower level, the Los Angeles Pottery Show was happening. We had this great view coming and going from the conference room, as we crossed over the lower level on bridges set with tables [...]

More Water

More Water

The Pasadena blogging community was agog–nay, thrilled with a jealous pang–when, on January 19th, Pasadena Adjacent posted this revelatory tour (with her customary, fun-filled video) inside the workings of the Devil’s Gate Dam tower. She and Mr. V. braved the rain to get a scoop and a coup. No one we knew had been inside [...]

Zen Monday: #82

Zen Monday: #82

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 [...]

Nature, Doing Its Job

Nature, Doing Its Job

The whole world burst out of its proverbial house house yesterday and enjoyed the sun. Hahamongna Watershed Park was flooded with bikers, hikers, horses, dogs and mountain runoff. The other day on The Sky is Big in Pasadena (not a misnomer, by the way) there was a discussion about whether or not the past week’s [...]

Tilt

Tilt

This is Earlham Street, looking west from Lake Avenue. I did not take this photo on a windy day. Any scientists out there? What is it about our trees? Is our sun always in the southern skies and if so, why isn’t that true of everywhere in the northern hemisphere? Is it axis tilt? Magnets? [...]

The Lukens Estate

The Lukens Estate

Here’s the house we’ve been talking about. I wasn’t planning to post these shots. I want to get across the street and get up high on something to shoot over the fence. From this low vantage point I don’t think you get the magnificence of this big ol’ Victorian pile. According to Thal Armathura of [...]
