Vestiges of Deco Glory

Vestiges of Deco Glory

I took the liberty of brightening the rainy sky in this shot so you could better see the art deco glory of Angels School Supply at 606 E. Colorado Blvd. Perhaps it’s better known to old-timers as United Artist’s Theatre. Clifford A. Balch designed the building for the firm Walker & Eisen. It opened in [...]

Cold Faithful

Cold Faithful

I spotted this pair outside Zeli Coffee Bar on one of our rainy days a couple of weeks ago. I don’t think the dog was cold, really. He had on his fur coat. But you wouldn’t have caught me sitting outside that day. We’re expecting more rain today and tomorrow. Maybe thunder and lightning on [...]

Superfluous Detail: Celebration in Cement

Superfluous Detail: Celebration in Cement

Well I’ve had enough nature for one week! I need something urban, thank you very much. This building on East Colorado Blvd. is empty right now. What was it–Aardvark’s? Does anyone remember? I don’t think this is a historical structure. I believe this superfluous detail is a recent addition. But I could be wrong. Tell [...]

I’ll Wear Daffodils in My Crown

I’ll Wear Daffodils in My Crown

daffodils grow along an old fence at the Hahamongna Annex Monday night I went to my first Pasadena City Council meeting. Because so many of you commented on Monday’s post, where I expressed concern for the fate of the Hahamongna Annex, I thought I’d report back. Everybody won! That’s the gist of it. Everybody got [...]

Zen Tuesday: #7

Zen Tuesday: #7

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. Zen Tuesday–ah, hell, I don’t know. It’s up for grabs. Read [...]

Hahamongna Watershed; Theme day: Wood

Hahamongna Watershed; Theme day: Wood

We interrupt Zen Monday because of an important issue on the City Council agenda tonight. I promise we’ll have Zen Tuesday tomorrow. (Hey, maybe I’ll find Zen at City Hall!) Item 6. on the City Council agenda is “Public Hearing: Adoption of the Initial Study and Approval of the Hahamongna Watershed Park Master Plan Addendum [...]

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 [...]
