Horse Crazy

Horse Crazy

Horses have been part of the Tournament of Roses Parade since its beginning in 1890. This year is no exception: 23 different equestrian groups will prance down Colorado Blvd. with the floats on New Year’s day. As kids we watched all the big holiday parades–the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade with its huge balloons, the Hollywood [...]

Rose Bowl Enochlophobia

Rose Bowl Enochlophobia

I have a confession to make: I love being out and about in Pasadena all year ’round, except during Tournament of Roses week. I often drive through the Arroyo near the Rose Bowl Stadium on my way home from Hollywood or the San Fernando Valley. But not today. People are down there getting ready for [...]

Zen Monday: #78

Zen Monday: #78

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. There’s no right or wrong. It means what you think it means, or what you want it to mean. I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something [...]

Quintessential Pasadena

Quintessential Pasadena

While John and I were walking Christmas day he pointed out to me this quintessential Pasadena view. If it’s not quintessentially Pasadena it’s at least quintessentially north of the 210 freeway. Click on the photo to enlarge it if you can’t make out the towers of the Mt. Wilson Observatory. The Observatory, the mountain, the [...]

Happy Kwanzaa

Happy Kwanzaa

On Christmas day, John and I took a long walk with the camera. I love walking with the camera, but I especially love walking with John. His eye opens mine, his inspiration inspires me. We found a lot of sights to enjoy including these cement pavers embedded in the median. Someone had decorated them with [...]

Good Will Toward You

Good Will Toward You

In America it’s politically correct to say “Happy Holidays” from late November through December because people of so many cultures and religious backgrounds live here. I’m not a Christian myself but I don’t mind hearing “Merry Christmas,” nor do I worry much about getting the greeting right as long as people are of good cheer. [...]

Memory and Christmas Tree Lane

Memory and Christmas Tree Lane

Hmm. Now that I upload the photo it looks a little abstract. But click to enlarge it and you see it’s a tree-lined street. Not just any street, but Santa Rosa Avenue in Altadena, better known as Christmas Tree Lane. I parked myself and my tripod in the gully at the end of a driveway [...]

Sparkly and Cold

Sparkly and Cold

I finally went out last night and got pictures of twinkly lights. What I won’t do for you! It was freezing! The web said 50 degrees, but it was blustery enough for a substantial wind chill factor. Plus there’s the Petrea chill factor, which subtracts another fifteen degrees. We’re talkin’ cold. Last Christmas I went [...]

Winter Dining

Winter Dining

Despite the cool weather the poinsettias in front of Pinocchio’s Pizza on North Lake Avenue looked festive yesterday. The cloudy skies made the white table cloths look all the more crisp. Note that Big Mama’s Rib Shack has poinsettias in their planters, too. And someone has planted more with the sidewalk tree. I could use [...]
