A Healing Garden

A Healing Garden

Weeping bottlebrush trees with drooping branches and fuzzy red blossom create a natural enclosure, an enclave, a haven. It’s South Pasadena’s Memory and Healing Garden at Garfield Park, designed Lillian Montalvo and Mieke Kramer. We’ve walked the path, stepped through the arches, sat on the benches, read the names. It’s a contemplative spot. In the early [...]

Walls, Lamps & a Parking Lot

Walls, Lamps & a Parking Lot

Sometimes we shoot and don’t realize what we have until we edit, which is half the fun…           On a walk later that day…  

Sundry

Sundry

Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve roamed our neighborhood streets and alleyways, taken a visiting friend downtown to the warehouse district and indulged in a dog, met a friend at the Busy Bee classic diner in Ventura for a delicious BLT, felt good about the layer of dirt on our car, enjoyed some architectural [...]

Getting Out There

Thanks to Ralph DeFelice for allowing Hometown Pasadena to re-publish a few of his stunning photos from the many adventures he’s taken with his two kids. We’re going to let him speak for himself with text from his blog Day Trips LA: I’m a single dad living in Pasadena with my two kids, a 5 [...]

Pics from La Casita del Arroyo

It’s rounding toward 6 o’clock on a Friday afternoon, the mugginess of the day revealed by my shirt sticking to my skin in various places, too many places, almost to the point of making movement restricted. A feeling of continuous moistness on my skin, the feeling of sweat and a day’s amount of dirt clinging to my [...]

Pasties & Pies

Pasties & Pies

It’s a bit out of the way and one must appreciate that running into patience-depriving traffic is a given for 23 hours out of every 24, but if you ever find yourself in Long Beach and are pining for a pàsty or pie, we’d suggest Pásty Bakery on Pine Avenue just north of Broadway. We [...]

A Stroll Through the Langham

A Stroll Through the Langham

We attended Pasadena Magazine‘s Women in Business Awards at the Langham Huntington Hotel last month and was moved, motivated, and inspired by the three panelists: Chanel Boutakidis of Five Acres, Andrea Herz Payne of Aid Still Required, and Pasadena resident Amie Satchu of Foundation for Living Beauty. Unsurprisingly, the event was even more enjoyable, and funny, [...]

Pics of a Bridge Party

Pics of a Bridge Party

We arrived early and the grassy patch at Orange Grove and Colorado Boulevards was already flowing with people. Wreck ‘n Sow serenaded arrivals with their bluegrass sounds. We walked along the pathway with a dozen children’s activity stations to our left and classic Mustangs on our right. Our enthusiasm erupted (rather embarrassingly with lots of gushing [...]
