Two Beasts

Two Beasts

I have an architectural photo to post. The building has interesting lines. I sit at the keyboard, hunkered down in my lair, without one interesting line in my head. “Must write must write must write,” I think. But I don’t type it because it isn’t interesting. Squeak! “Boz, I’m trying to work.” If I hadn’t [...]

A Thanksgiving Moment

A Thanksgiving Moment

As we savor this week of Thanksgiving it’s useful to take a moment to reflect on what’s important, before the rampant consumerism of Christmas sets upon us. Ohm. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Zen Monday: #73

Zen Monday: #73

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, at least [...]

iDo iMpressions

Every evening, when the sun strikes at a certain angle, the mountains turn pink. I never tried to show you with my Olympus SP350, but I have a plan in mind to capture it with the Canon 20D when I’m good and ready. But today the pink moment happened with clouds and I didn’t have [...]

Autumn in Orange Heights

Autumn in Orange Heights

I snapped this just because the light’s pretty. Sometimes that’s all I need. If you enlarge the photo you can see the stone pillar on the right and the stone wall at center. Both are typical of Craftsman architecture in Pasadena. In this case I’d guess the pillar at right (part of a gate) is [...]

More Drive-By

More Drive-By

This isn’t really a drive-by shot, silly. It’s not safe to shoot photographs while driving. This is a park-by shot. But I’m keeping up my (teeny tine-y) theme in support of the Put a Fork in Hunger food drive, which is coming up this weekend (details below). The drive was put together by The Fork [...]

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 [...]
