The Beloved


TO friends at home, the lone, the admired, the lost

The gracious old, the lovely young, to May

The fair, December the beloved,

These from my blue horizon and green isles,

These from this pinnacle of distances I,

The unforgetful, dedicate.

--Robert Louis Stevenson

If I didn't know this photo was taken in South Pas I would say it was from virtually any small-town city in Ohio.

That's why So Pas is the Mecca for local movie, tv and commercial shoots!!! So Pas can be anywhere!!!

South Pasadena is small town America. It just happens to be in a big town.

This photo is pure Norman Rockwell.

Thanks so much, everyone. K, I love the way South Pas can pass for so many little towns in middle America. It's like living in a movie backlot.
