Hahamongna Detail Week, 4

If you look closely at this photo, you’ll see Boz was a younger dog when I took it. I still think it’s a fun shot, and so does he. We’ve encountered rattlesnakes at Hahamongna many times. They don’t want to bite you. They just want an opportunity to get away. So when you come upon [...]

Hahamongna Detail Week, 3

Hahamongna is often called “open space,” but that’s not quite right. The open land area serves many purposes, and has done so for a long time. Pasadena’s city website has a good description of the park’s many uses: “Hahamongna Watershed Park is a 300 acre park which provides a transition from the urban land uses [...]

Hahamongna Detail Week, 2

Boz doesn’t always look up when we’re at Hahamongna. He’s got his nose on the ground, where the smells are. But if he did look up, he’d see hawks, owls, herons, and many other birds, including the endangered Least Bell’s Vireo.This week, Boz is giving you a tour of Hahamongna Watershed Park to show you [...]

Hahamongna Detail Week, 1

Hahamongna Watershed Park is not beautiful in a conventional sense. It’s not crashing waves, alpine meadows, or even amber waves of grain, though on some days the skies are glorious. Much of the growth here is native California scrub. There are what you might call sweeping vistas, of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab. Conventional beauty has [...]

We just did a theme week, and it’s too early to do another one. Well, too bad! You know me, just try to tie me down to convention! When the world zigs, I zag. I’ve gotten myself so busified this week (travel, and my first book club appearance!) that I may not have time to [...]

If you visit Trinity College Dublin you can pay €9 (about $13.50 U.S.) to see the original Book of Kells. It’s said to be one of the oldest illuminated manuscripts in existence, and perhaps the most beautiful. I mean to visit Trinity College Dublin ASAP. The First Folio of Shakespeare, printed in 1623 not long [...]

Garage Week: Pair

Garage Week: Pair

Our neighbors had to tear down an old garage and build a new one. That old thing was gross. But when you’ve got a pretty old garage like this, it’s more in keeping with Pasadena’s preservation mindset to keep it. That mindset is one reason why people come here, and stay. I don’t know what [...]

Garage Week, Tidy

Garage Week, Tidy

What do you think of this one? I like the neatness, and the color coordination. And the doors–there must be a history, a name for these doors. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Garage Week, the Gentry

Garage Week, the Gentry

A better photo could be made of this fabulous garage, but I was so afraid I’d be taken for a prowler that I snapped what I could get. I like this one. You could keep daddy’s Bentley in there, and still have room for the horses! Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo
