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

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 [...]

Win Yerself a Quality Pasadena Tee

Win Yerself a Quality Pasadena Tee

What building is this? First one to answer correctly gets a Pasadena t-shirt (size small, that’s all I’ve got). The shirt’s an attractive navy blue with sophisticated gold lettering. I’m in possession of this nice, new shirt partly thanks to the generosity of Ann Erdman, Pasadena PIO, and partly thanks to the fact that I [...]

Big Bang University

Big Bang University

Locals will recognize NASA’s Caltech/Jet Propulsion Lab, which looks like a college campus. I remember being surprised about that when I first saw it. I think I expected something high-tech and sleek, like from a sci-fi movie about a “jet propulsion lab,” because I didn’t know what a “jet propulsion lab” was. I still don’t. [...]
