Halloween

Halloween

Hey. It’s the day. I wanted something truly weird. Here’s a good article about Halloween. Paragraph two tells you how to correctly pronounce “Samhain” and impress your friends. You might enjoy this delightfully sinister animated short film called The Sandman, directed by Paul Berry. (You might not.) Have fun out there tonight! Be safe! Be [...]

Last Day, October 2009

Last Day, October 2009

October 23, 5:18pm The idea of the project I started last month is to take a picture from the same spot and post it periodically, then watch as the spot changes throughout the year. I plan to post on the last day of each month, but since tomorrow’s Halloween, this time I’m a day early. [...]

Autumn Lore

Autumn Lore

Maybe I like the weather here because the only thing I have to compare it to is that of northern Illinois. Chicago nights get below fifty degrees this time of year. Some people love that. I am not some people. Santa Ana winds (as opposed to sleet coming off Lake Michigan) are all the bluster [...]

Die Hard

Die Hard

At 3pm, wisps were blowing up from the mountaintops. By 4pm, if you were in the car you were driving with your headlights on. If you were walking you might have had a mouth full of grit. Ash. It’s what’s left on the ground in the mountains from the Station Fire, now known to be [...]

Arc-en-ciel

Arc-en-ciel

Today might be a good day to head over to One Colorado and see what we have in common with Paris. It’s A Rainbow in the Sky, an installation by the legendary artist Daniel Buren. When I say legendary, I’m talking about the Colonnes de Buren, those black and white columns you may know about [...]

Zen Monday: #69

Zen Monday: #69

Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what the photo’s about. I look for something worth thinking about or, failing that, at least something odd or silly. As I post each new Zen Monday photo I’ll add a label to last week’s to [...]

Pie Night

Pie Night

I don’t know who this cherub is, but last night she had a table full of rivals for the title of Sweetest Thing at Pie Night. An annual Schwartz family tradition, my previous Pie Night post got so many fun comments that last night John and I were greeted as “the publicity department.” Pie night [...]

Mycology, Anyone?

Mycology, Anyone?

I get all my big words from my husband. Mycology is the study of fungi. To get a close-up of this yellow burst of fungal joy I had to poke my camera under a cyclone fence. I left some of it in the photo for scale, and you can see its shadow manifested in lines [...]

Octoberish

Octoberish

It’s still more than a week ’til Halloween and the pumpkin patches are up all over town. They’re like Christmas tree lots. (Sure enough, once the pumpkins are gone the same lots will be stocked with trees set out to dry.) You’ve got eight days–well, nights–to get on over to East Jackson Street and see [...]

Debris at the PWP Corral

Debris at the PWP Corral

In yesterday’s comments the Altadena Hiker reminded us of the high waters behind the Devil’s Gate Dam after a storm in spring of 2005. Greg Sweet wrote of the debris that builds up behind our local dams after big storms. That gave me the idea to post these pictures from spring of 2008 to show [...]
