Necessities

I have need of the sky,I have business with the grass;I will up and get me away where the hawk is wheelingLone and high,And the slow clouds go by.I will get me away to the waters that glassThe clouds as they pass.I will get me away to the woods. – Richard Hovey (1864-1900) Read the [...]

iPhone Wednesday #1 – Panorama, Sam Merrill Towers

iPhone Wednesday #1 – Panorama, Sam Merrill Towers

Okay, hikers, I’m sure this looks familiar. Click on it to enlarge it. Familiar, but…not. John’s still creating panoramas with his iPhone. I got the app but haven’t used it yet. (Sometimes I’m slow to make use of new technology, but once the technology is passe I’m more comfortable.) A few City Daily Photo bloggers [...]

Missing Girl

Missing Girl

It’s too important not to post this. Thanks go to Tim at Altadenablog for vetting the information. He called the Sierra Madre Police Department and they are indeed working on the case. According to Sierra Madre PD, if you see Cassie or have any information, call local law enforcement (Pasadena PD if in Pasadena, sheriff [...]

Not Private Enough

Not Private Enough

You know I’m going in there. This road is in Altadena, which is not an actual town, legally speaking, but an unincorporated area of Los Angeles County. What makes the road private, I wonder? Can they really keep me out? Do none of my county taxes pay for their roads, their infrastructure? “Private Road” calls [...]

Zen Monday: #80

Zen Monday: #80

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 [...]

Shimmer

Shimmer

I don’t know a thing about Tip Top Cleaners except it’s a block from Cold Stone Creamery. Location, location, location. Important for any business. I like the photo, though. All those nondescript, bagged-up clothes on the right, the press-board (or is it plywood?) counter, the plastic trash can, the wires and chains coming down from [...]

In PDP news: Editor Colleen Dunn Bates of Hometown Pasadena has named Pasadena Daily Photo on her list of Top Ten Experiences in Pasadena for 2009. PDP proudly shares the #9 slot with Timothy Rutt’s powerhouse Altadenablog. Pasadena’s blogging community is a thriving, generous, positive place where I’ve been encouraged and buoyed by my fellow [...]

Hot Set

I’m a fan of Pasadena PIO, the blog of Ann Erdman, Pasadena’s Public Information Officer. That’s where I read that KPAS, our local cable access TV station, is moving from channel 55 to channel 3 on the Charter Communications System. The move happens on Tuesday, January 12th. Ann wrote a PSA to publicize the move. [...]

Susan Stroh: Coaching it Out of You

Susan Stroh: Coaching it Out of You

Susan Stroh is one of those people who asks about you first. To start a conversation she says something nice about you–not your outfit, you. She points out something intriguing she heard you say, or mentions how well you carry yourself or how interesting your work is. She knows how to focus outside herself. I [...]

Home

Home

Yesterday was a beautiful day for a hike or a walk, but I stayed home. After having lived in apartments for so long, almost any house would have been a relief. But in our 85-year-old wood-frame home, with its hardwood floors, built-ins and casement windows, we feel gratitude every day. Really. Every single day we [...]
