Peace Through Music

Peace Through Music

The job of the Pasadena Human Relations Commission is to “engage in activities designed to aid in elimination of prejudice, intolerance and discrimination” and to “assist the City in achieving better inter-group understanding among residents.” Among other things. It’s about all kinds of people living together harmoniously, which doesn’t always happen even here in what [...]

Guarding the Property

Guarding the Property

When we walk Boz in the neighborhood he causes a stir. All the local sentries come out to give him what fer and the hair on Boz’s butt goes up. He’s a lover, not a fighter. I imagine if we could understand what dogs say it would be all single-syllable words and their sentences would [...]

Free Time in the Bank

Free Time in the Bank

I don’t think I’m giving away any trade secrets if I tell you I write my post the night before it goes up, then program Blogger to post it at 12:01 a.m. Usually I’m all organized and prepared. But sometimes the day has worn me out and I don’t have a single pithy thing to [...]

Apparently, Johnson Rocks

Apparently, Johnson Rocks

Who is Johnson? How does he rate a field? Oh, I looked, but I did not find. Much. Besides repeated mentions of Johnson Field (“an inactive spreading basin…used for passive recreational uses”), I found nothing but this interesting LA times article from 1992. The article discusses early plans for Hahamongna Watershed Park and a disagreement [...]

Aztec Fire Crew 63

Aztec Fire Crew 63

When I met John Belushi I said, “Nice to meet you.” When I saw Brad Pitt in an empty diner, all I did was smile. But last Wednesday, when J. and I met a bunch of firefighters fresh off the mountain, I said, “You guys are amazing! There’s no way to thank you, but thank [...]

Zen Monday: #64

Zen Monday: #64

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. As I post each new Zen Monday photo, I’ll add a label to last week’s to identify it [...]

Enchanted Evening

Enchanted Evening

One evening last spring in Altadena, I took this photo looking through a storefront window. It was the first Altadena Arts Coalition Open House on May 15th (the second one was September 5th). I took so many other pictures that night I never got around to posting this one. Lately we’ve been having lovely evenings [...]

Water Tight

Water Tight

In comments about yesterday’s photo Margaret asked, “What is the flat surface we see?” Here’s a closer view of it; it’s a catch basin, part of the Las Flores Water Company‘s system. I don’t know how it works, but I know it’s part of a larger group. A snooty crowd, frankly. They’re being a tad [...]

Revisiting an Old Flame

Revisiting an Old Flame

While firefighters continue to target hotspots in the Station Fire, I thought it might be interesting to revisit a small brush fire area I’ve photographed before to check in on the progress of regrowth. I took this photo on August 13th before the Station Fire began. Though this area (viewed across Las Flores Canyon from [...]

Wiggle Waggle Walk

Wiggle Waggle Walk

Here’s an action-packed sporting event involving three happy dogs who don’t have a care in the world, thanks to owners who love and care for them. That’s Sprocket on the left, Jerry in the middle and Boz on the right. John and I adopted Boz a little over six years ago and he’s been enhancing [...]
