Peafowl!

Peafowl!

Our thanks to Pasadena resident and Chorale Bel Canto member Claudia Bailey who, year to year, year after year, faithfully records the lives of the local, wild peafowl… (as in peacocks)….

Bees, Glorious Bees

Bees, Glorious Bees

It was late afternoon. The time of day when the light becomes crisp, and shadows lengthen and darken, colors pop. We came upon an adorable home with flowers blooming, all in rows, proper yet unruly at the same time.       We also saw a faux beehive…     The number on the sign […]

Ulla’s Spring & the Ancestors

Ulla’s Spring & the Ancestors

We admit, we’ve got it bad for Ulla. Let us clarify, Ulla’s Art.

And speaking of ancestors, besides sharing her images of the arrival of spring, Ulla is […]

Spring in Connecticut

Spring in Connecticut

Spring 2015 officially commenced in the northern hemisphere on March 20th. Here in lovely Southern California, the season is easy to spot with the blooming of tulips, poppies, cherry blossoms, calla lily, and pansies. In New England, the changing of the guard after the vernal equinox is not so obvious. We recently visited southern Connecticut […]

Walking Pasadena, No. 2

The Walking Pasadena group started on Facebook in April 2014. The purpose? To share experiences of pedestrian exploration of, from, and on the streets of Pasadena (and thereabouts), both online and in person. We schedule occasional group walks, but mostly we share photos and events and questions of interest to pedestrian explorers in our city. […]

Colored Skies, Public Art & Spineless Cactus

Once again, we’d like to thank Karol Franks for sharing her photography. Her work lures the eye, alters one’s perspective, and soothes the mind while inspiring one’s imagination.   Right: Pretty clouds, or what Suzanne Kloss calls “sheep clouds.”       Public art installation downtown L.A., work in progress:         A […]
