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 [...]

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 [...]

State of the Blog

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 [...]

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 [...]

Panoramania

Please enlarge this one. John got a photo-stitching app for his iPhone and now he’s as bad as I am. Everywhere we go, we’re both snapping pictures. A couple of addicts. Me: snap, snap, snap. John: snap-turn, snap-turn, snap-turn. We now have panoramas of our house, our street, Hahamongna, the mountains, the dam, the dog, [...]

Communication Not Separation

Communication Not Separation

I saw this mural when I was out shooting pictures of the Rose Parade aftermath. It’s at 1292 Colorado Blvd. overlooking the parking lot just west of the Incycle bicycle shop. The artist is Victor Steinbacher, assisted by Leo Sanchez. A tidbit of undated information I found on the web said Steinbacher studied at Art [...]

Silly

Silly

The town board of Huntington, Long Island voted to ban the sale of Silly String within 1,500 feet of parade routes because the stuff stains the finish on their fire trucks. But at our Parade, Silly String is a time-honored tradition. After all, our floats are biodegradable. What can a little bit of polyisobutyl-methacrylate and [...]
