Swinging to the Bard

Is it already Wednesday? I’m still telling you about my weekend. On Sunday I crossed over into Laurie’s turf and caught the last of this year’s free concerts in South Pasadena’s lovely Garfield Park. My neighbors had been taking their kids every week this summer and I didn’t want to miss my last chance. The […]

Precious Heirlooms

Precious Heirlooms

No hothouse tomato ever came close. I bought a huge bag full of heirloom tomatoes from the Jaime Farms booth at the Pasadena Farmer’s Market last Saturday. I got a few of each color: light green and dark, subtle yellow, bright orange and all varieties of red from pale to brassy. We’ve been eating them […]

Zen Monday: #58

Zen Monday: #58

Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what the photo’s about. I look for something provocative or, failing that, at least something odd. As I post each new Zen Monday photo, I’ll add a label to last week’s to identify it if necessary […]

District 3 Block Party 2009

District 3 Block Party 2009

I got to the District 3 Block Party as things were winding down. That might have been a good thing. Had I gotten there much earlier, City Councilmember Chris Holden and his son Nick might have been too busy to pose for me.Holden is mostly but not entirely responsible for the annual party. Above, you […]

La Loma Bridge

La Loma Bridge

I took this photo at dusk, when colors are blending into gray. I fooled around with the picture. Tried making the shadows lighter, tried sharpening the edges, tried it in black and white. In the end I left it unaltered. The La Loma Bridge spans the Arroyo Seco about a mile south of the Colorado […]

Time Well Spent

Time Well Spent

I mentioned yesterday I had a photo from the Pasadena Historical Society. To be more clear about it, the Pasadena Historical Society operates as the Pasadena Museum of History, which houses its archives/treasure trove in the museum basement. It’s darn near impossible to finish a project at the PMH archives in a single day because […]

Rube Goldberg Was Not from Altadena

Rube Goldberg Was Not from Altadena

I’ve been up at the Altadena Historical Society a couple of times recently. Pasadena, too (yes, I’ve got a photo or two). When I asked Altadena archivist Sherry Cavallo if I could post a picture of this contraption she said “Please. Maybe someone can tell us what it is.” It looks scientific, and after all, […]

Nothin' But Blue Skies

Nothin' But Blue Skies

Yesterday was particularly clear in the Los Angeles basin. The views were endless. You could see for miles. It was nice while it lasted. In the afternoon there was a brush fire in the hills just above the intersection of the 134 and the 2 freeways. It looked pretty bad on TV: bright red flames, […]

A Mad Tea Party

A Mad Tea Party

I had a different post in mind for today, but yesterday afternoon the neighbors gathered in our yard and Marcellina brought storybooks. When spontaneous magic happens, you post about it. And the kids were into it! Marcellina let me read Rain Makes Applesauce, an imaginative book written with a tad bit of sarcasm by Julian […]

Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what the photo’s about. I like to find something provocative for you or, failing that, at least something odd. As I post each new Zen Monday photo, I’ll add a label to last week’s to identify […]
