Winding Down

Winding Down

Folks, I am winding down here. This is my final week of daily blogging.  Ah, WEEP! It’s horrible! How will we bear it? Together. We will bear this tragedy together. I’m not exactly quitting. Beginning in May, Pasadena Daily Photo will be more occasional than daily. Of course I’ll have to call it something else [...]

Cherry on Top

Cherry on Top

a bench on the Caltech campus April 23 is a day for books. It’s World Book and Copyright Day, World Book Day, and World Book Night, not to mention National Cherry Cheesecake Day. For god’s sakes, if you’re going to cook, use a cookbook. Or at least read something during dessert. Read the Full Story [...]

Zen Monday #239

Zen Monday #239

There is a moment of glee for me when I spy something and think, “Zen Monday photo!” It’s like coming up with a good tweet. If and when you come up with something to say about this photo, please add it to the comments. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Left Coast Literary

I love this photo of Pamela Tartaglio. I took it yesterday at the Los Angeles Times Festival of books. I don’t usually think of myself as much of a portrait photographer. It helps when you have a good model. Pam is the 2013 Past President of Women Writing the West, and the current Chair of Women [...]

Bookmarks: Bank of America and Jeezus

Don’t mess with Liz Raci. When Liz and her family bought their home during the last housing bubble, they got a 5-year fixed, 25-year adjustable rate loan. Their plan was to refinance before the end of those first five years. (We’re entering a new bubble. Don’t do this.) At the time, many people did the [...]

Abbey San Encino

Abbey San Encino

Spring Cleaning

Spring Cleaning

In the darkness, climb the wooden contraption that’s as much stairway as ladder. See the boxes. Here’s one full of important things. Here’s one filled with junk. Here’s an empty one. Move them all aside. Step over the holiday decorations. Turn sideways to inch between Mother’s old files and the shelf where the tax records [...]

Plums

Plums

A little over a year ago, John and I planted a plum tree in the back yard. Soon it flowered, and before we knew it we had two plums hanging from the branches. I thought that was pretty good for a brand new tree. I watched the plums grow from little green balls to more [...]

Summer Cabin

Summer Cabin

It’s been cloudy and Octoberish for a few days. I’m not a fan of cold weather. I tried to come up with a picture that would give you an idea of how it feels to me, but I changed my mind. I’d rather look at this. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo
