Somewhere There is Always Beauty

Somewhere There is Always Beauty

To those who participated in yesterday’s rant, thanks for helping me get it off my chest. Everyone gets angry sometimes and there are healthy ways to express anger other than defacing property or burning things down. The Station Fire symbolizes too much loss in too short a time. Boz and I took a walk today. [...]

The Litterin' Low Life

The Litterin' Low Life

The Sam Merrill Trail gets a lot of weekend trash. So does the west end of the Gabrielino Trail, north of JPL. These spots also get a lot of graffiti, especially on the lower reaches. The preponderance of litter and graffiti on the low paths is because getting up high on the mountain requires effort [...]

Altered Arts

Altered Arts

While interfering with vision (there are usually mountains in this view) the smoke from the Station Fire is altering vision as well. I keep finding strange light, and I’ve heard of unusual sunsets all along the coast. The smoke is doing stuff to my throat and nose, too, but I haven’t figured out how to [...]

Theme Day: Big

Theme Day: Big

For two days I’ve been trying to capture a compelling photo of the pyrocumulus cloud that hangs over the San Gabriel Mountains north of Pasadena and Altadena. It can be seen for at least 70 miles. I know this because I shot pictures of it yesterday from Huntington Beach. But I can’t do it justice. [...]

I was offline most of the day yesterday. Karin, Tim, Deb and Greg will be good blogger sources for what yesterday felt like in Altadena. It sounds to me like it was tense and scary. But people supported each other and helped each other face the tasks they had to face. We were kind of [...]

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 [...]
