Optimistic

Optimistic

According to Google (and where else would I get my weather information?) it got to as low as 37 degrees in Pasadena sometime in the last 24 hours. I bundle up so much you’d never know I lived in northern Illinois for much of my life. The only person in our family who dislikes the [...]

Zen Monday: #75

Zen Monday: #75

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 look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something odd or silly. And I stay out of the comments box for most of the day to avoid influencing [...]

Hungry for Holiday Headgear

Hungry for Holiday Headgear

At South Lake Avenue’s annual Holiday Open House yesterday every other store was giving away food. Sure, you could get discounts. You could also get coffee and cookies with your complimentary chair massage at Touche Salon and Day Spa. You could munch on the free sample appetizers at Cafe 140 South while gossiping about passersby. [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
