Hens Do Have Teeth

Hens Do Have Teeth

I like the funky outdoor seating at Hen’s Teeth Square. On a warm day these stools are taken up by diners munching on chicken and/or tacos. But the weather was chilly the day I took the picture. For some strange reason I didn’t go across the street and get a shot of the whole place. [...]

The Mural Wasn’t Hard to Find

The Mural Wasn’t Hard to Find

Hen’s Teeth Square is a small shopping center nestled where Los Robles Avenue meets Woodbury Road. Pasadena comes to one of its northernmost points there; Altadena is across the street. The square offers Puebla Tacos #3, where the staff is really sweet, Pollos Puebla (possibly owned by the same folks?) and a little market, and [...]

Home Shopping in Julia’s Neighborhood

Home Shopping in Julia’s Neighborhood

Just one little block east of the famous house we visited yesterday I spotted this one for sale. There was a “Sale Pending” tag attached to the Sotheby’s Realty sign on the lawn. So if you want this house you may have to get lucky, or at least hurry. Take a look. What do you [...]

Street View: Julia Child

Street View: Julia Child

I hadn’t known until the popularity of Julie and Julia that Julia Child was born in Pasadena. Commenter Markowsky mentioned her childhood home on another post. He quotes this link describing House and Garden’s Book of Houses: “Of interest is the house Reginald Johnson designed in Pasadena for John McWilliams Jr. McWilliams was a Pasadena [...]

Theme Day: Waiting

Theme Day: Waiting

The first of every month at the City Daily Photo blogs, we play variations on a theme. This month’s theme is “waiting.” I had planned a different photo but when nosing around through my stuff last night I came across this sorry pair. I don’t know about your dogs, but Boz and Sprocket can’t seem [...]

Zen Monday: #74

Zen Monday: #74

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, to avoid influencing the discussion. I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something odd [...]

Last Day, November 2009

Last Day, November 2009

I can’t fool you. It’s not the last day of November. But tomorrow is Zen Monday and I’m not about to mess with that. So to continue our experimental monthly look across Johnson Field, let’s see if anything’s changed. Hmm. Looks like the Psychocross fanatics got their rudders stuck. I kid. The local Cyclocross riders [...]

Darling Clementines

Darling Clementines

I picked this season’s first ripe clementines from our tree on Thanksgiving day. Last year the tree gave very little fruit but this year I watered it every few weeks and I guess that made the difference. Some branches hang only a couple of feet above the ground, burdened with abundance. Clementines are about the [...]

Thanskgiving, 2009

I hope Paula of Pensacola Daily Photo won’t mind me quoting her: “expressing gratitude isn’t saying what you’re grateful for, it’s what you do with what you’re grateful for.” I like that because it reminds me I can talk talk talk (or write write write), but it’s what I do that counts. My actions are [...]
