Feels Like the 101st Time

Feels Like the 101st Time

You know those things you walk by a hundred times but don’t notice? These mailboxes are one of those things for me. John and I lived in beautiful Altadena when we first got married and I became a regular customer of some businesses there. One was Merit Dry Cleaners on Mariposa and the other was [...]

Rattled

Rattled

This photo has layers. In the top right corner you see Altadena in the distance. I think of the next layer as the row of sagebrush that lines the path. Then there’s the sunny part of the path, then the shady part. Then, in the shaded foreground, see that curved mark like someone took a [...]

Beacons

Beacons

Sometimes I think I struggle. And it’s true, I do. All humans have struggles. But our struggles are relative. So after a long working day it’s good–no, it’s a blessing–to enjoy a glass of wine, a backyard garden and good literature. Literature, in a variety of forms (reading it, writing it, discussing it) is my [...]

Moi Aussi

Moi Aussi

I usually do my posts in the early evening, then set the timer on this here Blogger thingy to post at a minute after midnight. (Don’t ask me why I set it for a minute after; I don’t have an answer.) I’ve spent a good deal of time researching a post and I’ve come to [...]

Swinging to the Bard

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 [...]
