Irresistible Threat

Irresistible Threat

A few days ago, this was this. As flames close in on the hills above JPL and Altadena, I eat the words I wrote on my Thursday Overdog post: “obviously not threatened.” I wasn’t going to take photos of the Station fire last night but I had to go look at it. We’ve all seen [...]

Heritage Square: Past, Present, Future

Heritage Square: Past, Present, Future

I wish I could tell you the name of the photographer who took this shot. The photo is courtesy of Heritage Square Museum. Pictured are the Castle and the Salt Box, the two historical structures from Bunker Hill that were saved from demolition only to be burned by vandals in the early days of Heritage [...]

Heritage Square: Not Square

Heritage Square: Not Square

Even in 1893 an octagonal house was unusual. This was Gilbert Longfellow’s second octagon house, originally located on San Pasqual Street in Pasadena near where Caltech stands now. The Longfellow-Hastings Octagon House has been part of Heritage Square Museum since 1986. The house has been partially renovated and is currently used to display photos and [...]

Heritage Square: Idyll Worship

Heritage Square: Idyll Worship

This building may seem familiar to Pasadena residents as the Lincoln Avenue Methodist Church. Of course if you know Lincoln Avenue you know it’s no longer there. The church is now a denizen of Heritage Square Museum in Montecito Heights. And it’s okay that the stained glass window is covered in this photo because–well, keep [...]

Heritage Square: Enchantment

Heritage Square: Enchantment

The Hale House. When John and I were first dating we once stopped by the Heritage Square Museum. It was closed, but we always meant to go back. A peek down the quiet avenue was a glimpse into history. Every time I drive by on the Pasadena Freeway and see the Victorian spires peeking out [...]

Zen Monday: #60

Zen Monday: #60

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 [...]

Things the Light Does

Things the Light Does

I like this–the light in its variations, the way it slants this way and that, almost blinds you in one spot yet you’d almost miss it in another spot if you weren’t looking. I went to two parties yesterday. One was a memorial for the mother of a friend. I didn’t know my friend’s mother. [...]

With beauty imperfect and uncontrolled; this is how I want to spend my weekend. Go to Pasadena Daily Photo

Recycling Efforts

Recycling Efforts

I saw my friend and neighbor Linda Centell at the District 3 block party. You may remember Linda; she works with Ann Erdman, Pasadena’s Public Information Officer. At the party, Linda introduced me to Gabriel Silva. Linda thinks the world of this guy and now that I know more about him, I do, too. Gabriel [...]

Empty Mailbox

Empty Mailbox

In attempts to save paper I’ve set most of my bills to arrive electronically. I pay them that way, too. Via the U.S. Mail I receive a lot of stuff I don’t want–advertising, mostly. I can’t remember a time in my life when I’ve purchased a product from a direct mail ad; all that stuff [...]
