Everything’s Blooming

Everything’s Blooming

Our mother is the type of gardner who’s not particularly interested in gardening. She loves flowers, she enjoys a well-designed yard, yet she’d prefer to plant some things, maybe throw a few seeds and let nature take it’s course. She did receive some design guidance for her front yard, but in the backyard? One never […]

Looking Up, Looking Down, Looking…

Looking Up, Looking Down, Looking…

A night sky in Pasadena. A Water Company hole cover. A friend’s installation. We’ve got Altadena artist Kate Carvellas, snapping pics as she looks at the world.                       More photos by Kate: “Through a Carvellas Eye.”   ~~~     Kate Carvellas, in her own […]

Andalucia Mosaic

Andalucia Mosaic

  It seems we don’t patron Vroman’s enough, or perhaps our eyes are already into our book as we walk to the car, because we hadn’t seen this mural before. It’s on the Vroman’s side of new The Andalusia complex. With studio, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom apartments, rents range from $2,015 for a studio to $4,043 (for a 2-bedroom, […]

Land Really Is the Best Art—Andy Warhol

Land Really Is the Best Art—Andy Warhol

Ralph DeFelice of Day Trips LA hasn’t written up a whole trip rundown, but they’re good teases—to get off our duff and chomp around out in this big, wide, beautiful world… —or as Andy Warhol put it,   “Land really is the best art.”       Death Valley National Park…     Just 45 […]

The Brilliance & Whimsy of Beatrice Wood

The Brilliance & Whimsy of Beatrice Wood

To finish off our seasonal side trip (see “Ojai Marvels” and “Ojai Olive Oil Company“), we head to the studio of the late great Beatrice Wood. Many may only know Wood as one of the trifecta that inspired Francois Truffaut’s film Jules et Jim in 1962, which we saw decades ago, and before we knew anything of the celebrated […]

Strolling the Campus

Strolling the Campus

After we roamed, bedazzled by the ceramics at the Scripps College 73rd Ceramic Annual exhibit—and even though we were somewhat oversaturated and overstimulated by the sumptuous art work—we decided to take a stroll… One of our first sites was this memorial to Harriett Tubman, with a note tucked in her arm. It reads, “What makes her heroic?”     […]

2016 Bridge Party

2016 Bridge Party

Beautiful steel rims and pony seats, Wreck N Sow and Crimson Crowbar, rum punch and lemon lager, and Bling Bling dumpling’s and Big Mama’s ribs: get yourself ready for Pasadena Heritage‘s 2016 Colorado Bridge Street Party. For the last “Party,” we arrived just as the sun was heading for the treetops. We strolled the walkway of […]

Water… Summer!

Water… Summer!

From tide pools to shipwrecks, from surfing to coastal cliffs; it’s summertime—which means head for the beach! Ralph DeFelice is creator of the blog Day Trips LA, where he shares what he sees and learns while walking, climbing, trekking with his kids, immersed in nature—one adventure at a time. Excerpt from Day Trips LA, below… I’m a […]
