Cross Town Rivalry

Today’s a big day for Los Angeles college football fans… it’s the annual cross town rivalry game between (USC) University of Southern California Trojans and the (UCLA) University of California at Los Angeles Bruins. I’d never paid much attention to college football until my son attended USC for his undergraduate studies (2002-06). He was lucky to be enrolled […]

Checkered Stairway

Titling this picture Checkered Stairway somewhat nagged at me; would have been more appropriate to title it Checkered Mind based on the journey it triggered in mine. I reasoned that the stairs aren’t checkered, it’s the floor in front of the stairs that are, which led to images of hopscotch, chess, and naturally, the game of checkers. And, to dancing […]

George Hurrell, Photographer of the Stars

While visiting the Los Angeles Archives Bazaar at University of Southern California this past Saturday, I spotted an exhibit of George Hurrell’s movie star photos. They weren’t easy to photograph without getting glare and reflections galore, but I thought some of my blogging friends might find them interesting. I particularly liked reading about the Joan Crawford photo. […]

The cover of my new book “It Was Current Just Yesterday- but has since been filed away” is submitted for this week’s photo challenge, Cover Art. This photo was taken today in the University of Southern California’s Doheny Memorial Library while I was visiting the Los Angeles Archives Bizarre being held there. The card catalog is living proof of […]

Gotta Just Grab My Bike…

Most imagine Southern California as land of the car, which it is, without a doubt. Places are spread out, public transportation isn’t sufficient for the large number of residents or geography, and people like convenience. But, there are places where the bike rules. On the campus of University of Southern California, a large, flat, beautiful […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Work of Art

I took a literal interpretation for this week’s photo challenge with a grouping I’m titling Art of Work. I watched these artists demonstrating their craft during the recent Los Angeles Times Book Fair held at USC (University of Southern California). I was both fascinated and envious. I spent many years as a working artist, designing intricate celtic […]

Money, Money, Money

I wandered through an exhibit at USC’s (University of Southern California) Doheny Library awhile back that fascinated me to no end! The exhibit was about the Federal Reserve, and very visually dealt with the destruction of money. All that money on display, piled up, and yet useless, having been shredded to tiny bits. Ah well… […]

Pasadena’s Beautiful “Chia”

Chia, known today as the Pacific Asia Museum, was founder Grace Nicholson’s nickname for the Pasadena building that her ideas and research developed in 1924. The building was brought to life by a well-known local architectural firm, and became a center for the arts. Chia is a word with distinct meaning in two cultures closely […]

“JFK at USC”

I had a wonderful lunch with my son who works at University of Southern California (USC) today. Once done, he went back to his office and I wandered off on a photo expedition (naturally!) of the gorgeous campus. Heading up the stairs to Doheny Memorial Library, I noticed a plaque affixed on either side. Just by […]

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
