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: #57

Zen Monday: #57

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 […]

On the Back Porch

On the Back Porch

Usually it’s Laurie who posts poems. But I’m posting a poem today because the photo is of the back porch of a poet friend of mine. I’ve recently read a couple of poems by Dorianne Laux. I think she’s really something. I found this poem of hers on line. On the Back Porch by Dorianne […]

Theme Day: Night

Theme Day: Night

Night in the city is often bright. Here’s what night looks like when you look up from South Lake Avenue in Pasadena. The City Daily Photo family is now 1019 strong. I’ve met people in Iran, Brisbane, Paris, Rotterdam and now a new blog in Herat, Afghanistan. This remarkable community of communicators joins together on […]

Ventanas Window

Ventanas Window

I’m a lightweight. I didn’t used to be. I think I need to get out more often. Ventanas Restaurant and Bar at the Westin is a quiet spot for a weeknight martini. A little off the beaten track (aka Colorado Blvd.), which is sometimes exactly what you need. Or exactly what I need. For me […]

Last Night, Fountain, City Hall

Last Night, Fountain, City Hall

I’ve said it so many times I sound like a broken record: you can’t take an ugly picture at Pasadena City Hall. You can take a blurry picture there or an amateurish one, or one that’s poorly framed. But no matter what you do it won’t be ugly because City Hall has no bad angles. […]

Whispering the Good News

Whispering the Good News

Another TV crew shooting in Altadena? Oh yawn. I spotted the Ghost Whisperer crew again. This time they were shooting at the Mountain View Mausoleum on Marengo Avenue across from the Mountain View Cemetery. It’s not really a yawn. I’ve been in the LA area twenty years and I still get excited when I see […]

Make Lemonade

Make Lemonade

I’m a fortunate person because the other day, a lemonade stand popped up on my street. When it’s almost a hundred degrees out, that’s what you do. I happened to be thirsty. I also happened to have 25 cents. That bought me a glass of cold lemonade, time with my neighbors and some good memories. […]

Zen Birthday: #50

Zen Birthday: #50

Last week was a special Zen Monday for lovers of the Space Program and adventurous hearts throughout the world. This week is a special Zen Monday for my love and the light of my life. Zen Monday is (usually) the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you […]

Morning Doves

Morning Doves

Someone who came before us attached a birdhouse to a post supporting the roof over our back porch. This photo is oddly framed because Ms. Mourning Dove doesn’t want me near her. She’d fly out of the nest if she could, but she’s got eggs and doesn’t dare leave them. I took the picture from […]
