Pie Night

Pie Night

I don’t know who this cherub is, but last night she had a table full of rivals for the title of Sweetest Thing at Pie Night. An annual Schwartz family tradition, my previous Pie Night post got so many fun comments that last night John and I were greeted as “the publicity department.” Pie night [...]

Mycology, Anyone?

Mycology, Anyone?

I get all my big words from my husband. Mycology is the study of fungi. To get a close-up of this yellow burst of fungal joy I had to poke my camera under a cyclone fence. I left some of it in the photo for scale, and you can see its shadow manifested in lines [...]

Octoberish

Octoberish

It’s still more than a week ’til Halloween and the pumpkin patches are up all over town. They’re like Christmas tree lots. (Sure enough, once the pumpkins are gone the same lots will be stocked with trees set out to dry.) You’ve got eight days–well, nights–to get on over to East Jackson Street and see [...]

Debris at the PWP Corral

Debris at the PWP Corral

In yesterday’s comments the Altadena Hiker reminded us of the high waters behind the Devil’s Gate Dam after a storm in spring of 2005. Greg Sweet wrote of the debris that builds up behind our local dams after big storms. That gave me the idea to post these pictures from spring of 2008 to show [...]

Water Control

Water Control

There’s water under the Devil’s Gate dam again. We were told that last week’s rain wasn’t much and truly it’s only a stream, but it’s good to see. Click on over to the Pasadena PIO’s recent Mystery History piece about the dam and scroll down to the well-known photo of the “completed project.” The dam [...]

Embracing Our Diversity

Embracing Our Diversity

Folks said 7:30 was a little early–not to be out of bed, necessarily–but to be showered, dressed and out in public being civil on a Monday. But none of us would have missed it for anything. It was the Pasadena YWCA‘s Women for Racial Justice Breakfast, chaired by Ellen Portantino, emceed by NBC’s Beverly White [...]

Zen Monday: #68

Zen Monday: #68

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 worth thinking about or, failing that, at least something odd or silly. As I post each new Zen Monday photo I’ll add a label to last week’s to [...]

In Plein Air

In Plein Air

Plein air painting is a southern California tradition. (It’s a tradition anywhere there’s lush scenery and decent weather.) To me, a plein air painter can be scenery, too. (Though it depends somewhat on the painter.) I’m so glad to have a dog who needs walking. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Oak Grove Equine

Oak Grove Equine

inspiration: Laurie Yesterday at Glimpses of South Pasadena, Laurie posted a photo of a front yard with an unusual tree swing. The more I thought about it, the more I thought, “I’ve seen that before. I’ve even photographed it.” Close, but no cigar, as they say. At Oak Grove Park, a similar swing hangs from [...]

See My Shells

See My Shells

I met Shell Sherree over at Paris Daily Photo. I don’t remember if I visited her blog first or she visited mine, but she’s well entrenched in the Pasadena blogging community now–a regular over at Finnegan Begin Again as well as the Altadena Hiker. I’ve seen her hanging out at Cafe Pasadena, too, and I’ve [...]
