Guerrilla Drive-By Donations

Guerrilla Drive-By Donations

In keeping with this week’s developing theme (did you notice a theme was developing?) of guerrilla art, here’s a guerrilla drive-by photo, taken at dusk yesterday while I waited for the traffic light to change at Orange Grove and Lake. I’ve long admired this building at 825 E. Orange Grove Blvd. I searched the web [...]

Put a Fork In It

Put a Fork In It

Drive a little further south on St. John Avenue from yesterday’s photo and you’ll come to the Fork in the Road. Today’s photo was taken by Phil Coombes, pictured at right. I myself have avoided photographing the Fork. This is not because I don’t like the Fork. Hell, everyone likes the Fork. But everyone has [...]

St. John Signs

St. John Signs

I don’t usually tip off Zen Monday until the following week but today I’m making an exception. Pascal Jim guessed right in yesterday’s comments when he surmised there was another sign down the street. Politics and grammar aside, your signs in yesterday’s comments are more fun. Bellis is a cagey one. Her comment indicated she [...]

Zen Monday: #72

Zen Monday: #72

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. I also stay out of the comments box for most of the day, so as not to influence the discussion. I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, [...]

AmyR, in Seventeen Days

AmyR, in Seventeen Days

Fellow Pasadena-area blogger AmyR is beyond busy this month. Besides hosting a dinner party last weekend and her mother this weekend and besides it being a busy time at work (which I learned from one of her posts) and besides operating two blogs, Amy is writing a novel. Yes, she’s writing a novel this month. [...]

In My Dreams

In My Dreams

Gee, those are clean dumpsters and wow, that alley is tidy. I guess you can keep your dumpsters and alleys polished when you have hired help. I’d love to employ someone to do that for me, but first I’d hire someone to clean the house. Then I’d hire someone to do the laundry. Wait–no, I [...]

Tranquil Weekend

Tranquil Weekend

I was looking for something spooky to post for Friday the 13th and I stopped at this one. Not spooky. Tranquil, in fact. I’m facing south under the 210 freeway overpass, toward the Rose Bowl. It’s tranquil except for the noise of rushing traffic above. The photo suits my mood. I have a lot to [...]

Learning

Learning

So John and I go to the Huntington Library and Gardens for our anniversary. I take my camera. John’s patient while I practice a few shots. I’m learning about F stop and shutter speed and aperture, and frankly I’m still not sure which two of those are the same thing. But I can tell the [...]

A Taste of France in the Dena

A Taste of France in the Dena

We in “the Dena” are one, I like to think. I’m free to travel from Alta to Pasa to South Pas, and thank goodness for that because South Pas has Nicole’s Gourmet Foods. Laurie will forgive me for posting about it. She herself has posted twice about this slice of paradis in southern California. Who [...]

Eliot School: Room 13

Eliot School: Room 13

At the door to Room 13 at Eliot School, Principal Peter Pannell told our tour group, “I don’t know what we’re going to find in here.” We found creativity in process, where the students were running their own show (or would be, as soon as school let out and they got back into the space). [...]
