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 [...]

Recession Religion

Recession Religion

Lake Avenue Church is reflected here in the empty storefront across the road. That’s literal, not figurative. Though the stores may be empty these days, Lake Avenue Church seems full. I wondered if the same is true of all churches. It’s easy to make the assumption that, during a recession, church attendance would rise. So [...]

Blah With a Past

Blah With a Past

Sometimes, when you learn a little history, the nondescript becomes, um, descript. When I trekked up Lake Avenue last Satuday I took only a few shots of the Lighthouse Christian Bookstore. I didn’t plan to post them. Why post more depressing shots of empty storefronts, especially when the building is so blah? Then, in comments [...]

What Ever Happened to the Sandwich Board?

What Ever Happened to the Sandwich Board?

This tough-chick mannequin is familiar to anyone who drives north of the freeway on Lake Avenue. She usually sits closer to the road, but when I walked by last Saturday she was almost inside the door of her regular hangout, Pro Boxing Equipment. I stopped inside and met Abdul, the friendly sales rep you see [...]

Zen Monday: #81

Zen Monday: #81

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 [...]

Gateway

Gateway

I have no idea how long it takes me to walk a mile because it’s impossible not to stop every few feet and take a picture. If I ever want to time myself I’ll have to either go without a camera or take a friend who finds my photo habit annoying. So far I don’t [...]

Nobody’s Walkin’ in LA

Nobody’s Walkin’ in LA

You’ve heard of “getting away from it all.” If you enlarge this photo, in the distance you can see what-all people around here like to get away from. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Theme Day: Best Photo of 2009

Theme Day: Best Photo of 2009

The City Daily Photo blog community is having a mid-month theme day called Best Photo of 2009. I know of no dictated criteria such as “best framing,” “most skilled lighting” or “strangest physical position from which photograph was taken,” so I went through all the photos I posted in 2009 and chose my favorite. I [...]
