Final Weekly Photo Challenge: All-Time Favorites

Sadly, this is the final Weekly Photo Challenge from WordPress, and with it, SueBee and Kat’s 130th entry. WordPress asked us to post a few of our All-Time Favorites.

Closeups of Rose Parade Floats

(19 photos) Volunteers are scrambling these days to put the finishing touches on the gazillion flowers, seeds, bark, who-knows-what affixed to the floats for Pasadena’s annual Rose Parade on January 1st. I went to the after-parade viewing area a couple years ago.  This blog post features some pictures from my visit, albeit a very crowded […]

Pasadena’s Hangover

Each January 1st for the past 126 years, the city of Pasadena has hosted the Rose Parade down Colorado Boulevard. It’s obviously changed enormously and grown by leaps and bounds over the years, to become the spectacle it is these days. While I’ve been to the parade in person just twice over the years, I […]

Pasadena’s Beautiful “Chia”

Rose Floats!

Pasadena was in the spotlight yesterday, and didn’t fail to impress.

However, I’d have been better off arriving later in the afternoon. […]

The Gamble House

Touring the Gamble House in Pasadena, a gorgeous example of American Arts & Crafts style architecture, was like taking a walk back in time, a very low-lit walk! New to the time, the electric lighting was dim, the woods dark, windows not quite sufficient for lighting such large rooms. But, the woods were beautiful, the styling very […]

“The Doorbell”

Here I am, 10 years old again… Approaching quietly, secretively, one foot placed directly in front of the next to such an extreme that my balance is momentarily thrown off. I take a quick glance back over my shoulder to the whispered snickers of “them”… those cowards, my pals. No! They’re not my friends. How […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
